    Of all the restaurants with hype in London-- this one lives up to it. Ottolenghi & staff are nothing short of genius, but in a simple, refreshing way. A must-visit for fans of big, elegant flavours.

    Great place indeed. Downstairs is two big tables so if you are a couple ask for the corner. Food is amazing (recommend baby chicken, pork belly and burrata), wines could be better. Very honest prices

    Fan of Yotam Ottolenghi's cooking and recipes (especially vegetables and legumes) for a long time. Nopi did not disappoint. Give it a try for something different, middle easternly. Worth it!

    Another amazing experience that's best shared with a fun group of 4 or more. The acoustics are challenging but with food this good, you will have plenty to talk about after!

    Everything is good in Nopi, I love the food, the ambiance, staff etc. Don't forget to make a reservation. Best Mediterranean in London, definitely! Highly recommended

    “Amazing and surprising use of Mediterranean herbs. Sit at the communal table downstairs, right by the kitchen pass, with a view of all the action.” - Steve Wilson, co-founder/CEO of 21c Museum Hotels Read more

    Beautiful atmosphere and the food is amazing. I suggest getting a good mix of dishes to try and quaff it down with some lovely white wine. The communal table is a little cramped so try for upstairs

    Everything was good, but especially the butternut squash w/ tahini, zucchini fritters, savory cheesecake, and octopus. Sit at the communal tables downstairs and check out the bathrooms.

    Burrata (w/ peach and coriander) is a must -- the best I've ever had. A handful of starters and dishes to share is the way to go. Scallops were perfectly cooked & rainbow trout was a generous portion.

    Delicious food served in small plates ❤️ burrata, beetroot salad, roasted pumpkins and the great fritters ended with the sea bass as a main course
  • Constance |.
    Food has outstanding flavours. I strongly recommend the octopus and sea bass dishes. Service was excellent and the venue (upstairs) is bright and cosy.

    Sweetcorn shrimp to die for but minted seabass was the star of the show. Relaxed, cool vibe. Great date venue. Bathrooms are a must see...

    A good spot for breakfast. Try their shakshouka, mushroom sourdough egg, corn cake with avocado.

    This brekkie place perfect for a nice healthy brekkie or brunch! Go for the corn polenta cakes with guacamole and egg...! Delish #yummy #breakfast

    Burrata w/ coriander seeds divine. prawns w/ Pernod and fennel exquisite. And Brussels spouts *out of this world*. It doesn't come too cheaply though, prep to pay £10 per small plate + wine £35++

    The Aubergine is transcendent. One of the best meals of my life--don't be shy with the sharing dishes, order as many as you can stomach!

    Avoid the meat, get all the sharing dishes you can and enjoy! Also the 3 wines I tasted were not excellent choices but dishes and great staff made up for it. Recommended!

    Rightly rated highly. Burata, chilli okra, tuna are great dishes. Service, room & toilets impeccable. Coriander & ginger martini a must. Deserts are a relative let down. Book & enjoy

    The food is absolutely fantastic – the best way to sample it is to order a number of different smaller dishes. The truffled polenta chips as a side are also highly recommended!

    Great mix of taste...use a lot of coriander... Nice design , in the kitchen and in your plate . Not so expensive wine . A good moment.

    All the dishes are designed for sharing so have them in the table. Pig belly is the best of all, though 5 spiced tofu, grapefruit burratta and pumpkin tart have very interesting flavour as well!

    We had the burrata, aubergine, trouchuda (cabbage), pork belly and rainbow trout. The trouchuda and the trout blew us away but everything else was just ok which is a shame. Service was excellent.

    This place is very special. It hadn't opened when I visited but it brings all the magic and great ingredients of Islington's Ottolenghi into Soho. Amazing cocktails and the financiers were awesome..

    Interesting food that's super fresh and creative. Very small plates, which make the bill skyrocket quickly. Quirky wine list. Recommended, if you've got the budget.

    Twice-cooked whole baby chicken with the sauce was delicious. Wish I had just used my hands instead of a knife and fork; I regret leaving remnants.

    Delicious bread to start, delicious venison with peanuts, caramelized yogurt and blackberry sauce. Unexpected flavor combinations that work well

    We had some small dishes to share. The rainbow trout is delicious. Great wine selection. Service wasn't great though - the waiters seemed eager to serve us fast so that they could go home.

    Trendy place and note that upstairs is more formal while downstairs is more casual. Every thing we had was fab!! Nothing to complain about!!!!

    Unusual combinations of flavour that really work. Everything was great, especially the scallops and the burrata. The upstairs is much nicer and spacious than the downstairs.

    Great food, buy all the starters and share, if lonely sit downstairs on the huge sharing table and meet some new people

    What's good here? Practically everything, from the nibbles, cocktails, the wines, and the "food" itself.

    If you are two people, order six main dishes plus two deserts and share. Be open minded, trust the Sommelière for recommendations, she is awesome! (via Scoville) Read more

    Stunning venue, loved the burrata & aubergine vegetarian dishes. Nopi is very expensive for the portion sizes. Did leave hungry even though £40 per head.

    GQ recommends: Tunisian Shakshuka (braised eggs, piquant tomato sauce, smoked labneh), with a side of breads for dipping and mopping up.

    In central Soho did Ottolenghi a stately pleasure dome decree. This place is perfect when you don’t want a fry-up and need some elbow room at breakfast time. Read more
