Our Soho-based restaurant has some of the Ottolenghi trademarks – platters full of salads greet customers as they arrive, a menu which celebrates bold flavours – but NOPI has a very different feel to the Ottolenghi delis. The marble is white, the brass is golden, the art is dynamic, the pace is a little faster. Upstairs we offer individual dining tables accommodating up to 6 guests. Downstairs we have two large communal/chef's tables overlooking our open plan kitchen and larder. NOPI’s menu changes according to the seasons with bold flavours and colours, broadly based on Mediterranean, Middle-eastern and Asian ingredients, using lots of herbs and spices. NOPI is open for breakfast, lunch, pre-theatre, dinner, and post-theatre.

To my disappointment, the lamb was tough. That’s the third time at Nopi this month and I love it, but was not too happy with the lamb this last visit

Food was good but not exceptional and the price is quite high but at the same time, not unexpected. I didn't appreciate the service charge on top of the food, as there is already quite a high mark up on each dish - £11.50 for 3 courgette fritters for example which were 'OK' but not 'delicious'

I think it's a place for families to go who have money and want to celebrate something, but who do not like to challenge their taste buds.

Also, there is a smart casual dress code but many people were rocking tracksuit bottoms and trainers, there was even a sports direct bag hanging on the coat rack. This gave me hope for a burger and beer meal deal.

Cocktails were delicious though, iId go back if it was just for more of those.

As per usual, I can’t fault the food or cocktails, which were outstanding. The new NOPI Negroni deserves a special mention because it’s mindblowing, even to seasoned Negroni lovers. I wish I could 6 stars for customer service, cause our server Rebecca was just outstanding. She had a great, nearly instant feel of the kind of people we are, how we like to interact and hence, what she could suggest. We had been joking (in Dutch) about how we’d pick “proper” desserts and ask them to box up some of the raspberry pistachio dark chocolate for later... so when Rebecca turned up with a box of just that to take home with us, it was like a scene from The Mentalist. It’s always lovely when a great culinary experience is a downright fun time as well. More places should take note of that.

Great service, stunning food! Our group of six shared a whole raft of smaller plates and they were all delicious - very healthy and stunning flavour combinations. My only negative point would be that I possibly had too many different flavours on my plate at one time - I would like to go back and really savour fewer dishes, but it’s great to have been able to taste so many. Oh and my other gripe - that I can’t afford to go back every week!

Another excellent lunch at NOPI - stunning Roasted Aubergine, Crushed Beetroot, Courgette and manouri fritters and rainbow trout. The only disappointment was the Achar green beans - a bit stringy - but it will not stop us returning soon.

I enjoyed the experience however i was entertaining some clients so i did not want to moan or point out, in front of my clients, that one of our starters, i found hairs in it, not 1 or 2 but 3 and they were long, i have short hair as had our waiter so i wonder do the Chefs wear Toques or protective head gear in the kitchen? Our waiter was very pleasant however could have been more attentive and it was not so busy! Overall not a problem for me but like everything one can only improve by constructive criticism!

Eating at Nopi is as stepping into one of his delightful books. The dishes look great, taste very good and feel healthy. The prices are very reasonable. It was a great experience. My wife and daughter were over the moon, we will certainly be back. Ottolenghi and team know how to fullfill high expectations. Thanks!

Disappointed to be honest. I was expecting the food and the service to be better. The starters were good, then we had a long wait for our main, which we complained about but not much was done. Possibly one of the most disappointing parts was the quality of the wine. Prosecco was very poor and the white wine not much better.

Nopi was amazing! It was recommended by a colleague as I had friends in town. I had the tofu scramble which was delicious - tried the shakshuka as well. Not the largest portions but you never expect that in a really tasty restaurant anyway and we were all definitely full for a few hours.
