The cuisine is excellent however the execution was not ideal on the day - meat was dry and fish was over cooked. The flavours were lovely but it all had the feel of brilliant cuisine in a place that got too busy, big and popular to still allow attention to detail and technique. The meals felt somewhat assembled rather than cooked.
Such a great creativity in the kitchen, amazing how the Ottolenghi’s brigade is able to use simple ingredients and develop so much flavour.
Either meat, fish, veg, every plates have the same level of detail.
Was a fan of its books, now a fan of its cooking.
Fair attempt at innovating unique dishes but the quality was not justified by the prices charged, the food was overly salted (in particularly the duck and the aubergine) and there was an unnecessary attempt to want us to order alcohol.
I haven't been to NOPI for a while but was looking forwards to it because of good experiences from the times I have been before.
I was surprised in how much I have missed the good quality ingredients and flavour.
The food selected was incredible, the services was faultless (Aussies lad had good recommendations) and ambiance of sitting next to other dinners made me realise the whole concept of this place works so well.
Very very nice experience once again.
Pre-theatre menu was tasty, varied and interesting. Excellent and sufficient selection for a veggie and a meat-eater sharing - the roasted aubergine and courgette fritters were especially good! And, for dessert, the financiers and the sorbet were perfect. We came away comfortably full and happy.
Our waitress explained the menu patiently and went out of her way to check ingredients for us. Service was excellent.
Arrived early for our reservation but we were warmly welcomed and seated immediately. The food was as interesting and tasty as expected. The service was impeccable and our waiter even showed us some of the recipes in the cookbook (sitting on the pantry shelf near our table). He pointed out that one of the two owners, Sami Tamimi, was in the kitchen and we were impressed with his interactions with the kitchen staff. Altogether a great experience.
Siamo stati al tavolo grade giù vicino alla cucina , atmosfera moto piacevole , in cucina c era una grande serenità , la cameriera Anna che ci ha servito é stata bravissima !!!!! Moto professionale , ci ha spiegato tutti i piatti !!
Bravi non vedo L ora di tornare a mangiare da voi 👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏
The ambient is very cool and hugging. The food is delicious, refined, and simple.
Nice food , well served. Flavours not outstanding. I do not think that the cooks can really deal with vegetables they do not enhance the subtility in the ríe flavours and the sauces sometimes do not marry them well.
So glad to finally taste Ottolenghi's cuisine. Very very tasteful, always surprising with the right spice or sauce. But I have to say that the vegetarian option could be more seasonal...
Food, as always, was incredible - full of flavours and the small sharing plates are brilliantly balanced for sociable dining.
i appreciated the lack of up-selling here; we loved everything we tried!!! especially the pork neck and the chickpea pancake. both felt the most reflective of the fusion cuisine. my main complaint is that the back room ambiance downstairs was lackluster. even though there was space... for the price, being in the corner by the bathrooms and exit was less than visually appealing. i think upstairs is the way to go.
Excellent food in a very nice setting. We had all dishes to share from the menu with 4 persons which was as good way to taste the kitchen of Nopi.
We looked forward to the lunch and we were not disappointed. Unfortunaly we don't live in the UK, so it will not be possible to come again soon!
We loved the food - the chickpeas pancakes and the mutton shawarma were phenomenal. Will surely come back for more :)
En tant que fans absolus d‘ottolengui ce fût un immense plaisir de découvrir NOPI live. Nous n‘avons aucunement été déçus! Les plats sont tous meilleurs les uns que les autres, une vraie explosion de saveurs en bauche. Le service adorable, notre serveur nous a même fait goûter the best croissant ever (le recyclage de 7 croissants non vendu en une bombe de croissant aux amandes, un véritable délice)... tout était parfait, nous sommes ravis!
Our meal at Nopi was fabulous. Every dish was prepared to perfection and combined incredible tastes and textures. The shared tables downstairs make for a very relaxed atmosphere in which to enjoy such amazing food!
We were kept waiting 20mins for the table that we had prebooked and then it appeared they had just forgotten about us as I had to query why there appeared to be seats available downstairs but we were still waiting. Service extremely slow, the waitress was friendly enough but no sense of urgency at all. We were starving by the time any food arrived. The food was tasty but I don’t think the ambience (downstairs) fitted with the price tag. It was cramped and messy with lots of containers lying around - not what I was expecting at all.
Lovely. Didn’t realise was shared table but amazingly private considering
The food is superb. We shared 3 starters and they were amazing. I had duck for my main and it was superb. My husband had chicken and let me tasted it. It was probably one of the beat roast chicken I had for a while. Strongly recommend this restaurant.
All expectations met or exceeded
Wonderful experience-from the food to atmosphere to service. Fresh and delicious small plates!!
Nopi was one one of the highlights of our trip to London. we enjoyed every single second - the hostess greeted us quickly and was very sweet. our table was adorned with a giant and stunning vase of fresh flowers. the lighting and music levels were perfect. the food was incredible - we ordered about 5 things and the amount was enough for both of us to have desert. the chickpea pancake, the sea bream and the eggplant were all standouts for us. the cocktails were delish and very beautifully presented. my gin tea with elderflower had dried flowers sprinkled on top. my husband had the dark and stormy which he maintains is the best cocktail he’s ever had. ever. the setting in the basement beside the kitchen was really enjoyable. it felt like we were hanging out in a beautiful pantry. buckets of spices and books and jars of this and that all around us. the unexpected highlight was the bathroom! they are mirrored and kind of shake you out of your head into the present moment. it wS a neat experience! overall, can’t wait to return and also to try his other restaurants. it was 10/10.
Nopi Downstairs was the perfect place for a nice lunch in the middle of the day. It was a business lunch technically, but with good friends. The food selection is amazing. Will definitely return!
Sitting downstairs you’re practically sat in the kitchen. We asked to move and were told a big party needed the other table although no big party arrived
An explosion of tastes, pure pleasure! The experience was even better than expected. And I expected the best. Highly recommended!
Amazing food and service but do we really need the ambient music? I prefer to just talk!
As an Ottolenghi lover, we had a lunch at Nopi while we were in London. We loved the experience, wonderful food, special flavoures, good whine and oustanding staff. We were at the open table not too crowded , good view at the kitchen.
We were here for the second time and had a wonderful dinnerexperience ! Completely different menu than last time, equally as good as last time! We loved it and looking forward to the next time. This was the reason to visit London and we left with a big smile!
Just wonderful the use of seeds and spices with simple clean ingredients.
NOPI is one of my favourite restaurants in the city. It never disappoints me!
Excellent service whilst booking, upon arrival, and throughout the meal. Food was all of excellent ingredients and well presented. Get lots of small plates and share because tasting is fun; a whole portion of any one dish had less appeal. The cocktails are interesting.
Wonderful service and atmosphere. We had a minor issue with our food, but our server and the manager more than compensated us for it. The food was very good (and original!), as was their orange wine. I will definitely return!
Sensational food and atmosphere, thank you for a wonderful night!
Very delicious food in a fun setting overlooking the kitchen on a communal table. The truffle polenta chips are Divine. Will definitely return but a bit pricey.
Food great. Service great. I thoroughly recommend NOPI.
We enjoyed the setting, and the relaxed atmosphere. The waiters were friendly without being condescending !
Food was fabulous.
The food was good as I expected. An interesting menu. I would have preferred it all together but it came in dribs and drabs, as is their custom. Unfortunately, a surley waitress spoiled this treat. She was unsmiling and cross when she took the order, missed a dish out then made me wait ages for the bill. When I asked her for it immediately, she was snappy. I had to ask for the service charge to be removed.
I can think of better places to spend £100 on a tapas style lunch for 2.
The food was delicious - the service we received was truly outstanding
Delicious delicious delicious. Beautiful and colourful food, superb flavour, healthy and so tasty.
Great atmosphere on communal dining tables downstairs, cool tunes and a crazy toilet!
Will definitely return.
