Good Vegetarian Options
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.

It was all too rushed. The food was served so fast, it arrived at out table even before our drinks. I felt they wanted to get rid of us as soon as possible. Disappointing.

Celebrating my husbands birthday. Great food and service. Somewhat expensive but otherwise very enjoyable especially when a dessert with a candle was presented to my husband!

We ended up waiting 30 minutes for our seats despite arriving on time. However, the staff were very nice and gave us updates, and were we given a few free appetisers with our meal. Also in the end they put us at a nice table instead of the bar. So the experience was up and down but overall positive.

It was just a great experience. The bream, the beef bavette and the chocolate ganache are highly recommended.

Great food and buzzy atmosphere. Service a little lacking in warmth but overall a good lunch experience without being first class. Noise levels just about bearable.

A busy place which is high in demand any time of the day. We went for lunch and after a short wait were seated. Friendly staff and many different waiters serving continually make the service fast but not really personal. The girl who took the order recommended 3 dishes per person( min) which unfortunately was way to much and we had to leave food . The quality and also presentation is very good and withhold the visit. Prices are on the upper end.

Always excellent food and reliable service. I'd go more often it wasn't always booked. This time enjoyed particularly the burrata with coriander seeds (a classic on the menu); the aubergine with tahini; the gorgeously spiced bavette with very light polenta fries; and the chestnut ice cream dessert (not as heavy as it sounds) but everything was fabulous and great recommendation on wine from the sommelier

I’d recommend ordering 5 small dishes for a party of 2. We ended up over-ordering about 7 dishes and couldn’t finish. All fantastic!

Love the food Ottolenghi is a genius but service edge is going - so popular it feels like they don’t have to make the effort - staff are good people but it feels like a take it or leave us attitude to service has crept in - all a bit haphazard too - forgot to take the drinks order - and a waiter squeezing past people waiting next to our table spilt food on my wife. It all feels a bit rushed to move us on - we came with 2 guests and they left wondering why we wanted them to share our previous experience.

Our stay at Nopi was even more than we expected. Excellent food, very good service, with lots of really good recommendations! We were offered a little wine tasting prior deciding, which one we take. We’ll come back.

While the food was nice, it was not as interesting as I had hoped it would be, and it was so expensive that it ended up feeling poor value.
However, the staff were excellent and it was a nice meal out

Expensive for small portions. Bread should be included. Beetroot starter lacked in Feta and looked like a plate of mostly mush. Too many derivations of Tahini sauce make it all taste samy. Service was very good.

The service and food were perfection, the only negative I have is that the espresso at the end of the meal was sour, not up to the quality of the rest of the meal. A gentler coffee such as Kenyan would have finished the meal off perfectly. It would be great if you could offer a choice of coffees!
