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.

Ok, the food was fantastic and if I could ask for any meal on earth for my ‘last meal’ it would be the savoury cheese cake (which we didn’t initially order but our waiter suggested it...and we ended up getting 2!)
Fantastic food, good wine, great service, we’ll be back.

Had a wonderful time long lunch with friends. Loved all of the small plates and desserts and some great recommendations from the waiter too. All the wines we had were also lovely. This place is just the best- especially for small groups where you can try lots of plates. Highly recommend and can’t wait to go back!

The booking was at short notice and we were very pleased to get the early opportunity to come to NOPI.

The front of house was most welcoming and efficient. Our bar seat put us into the heart of the action and that added to the overall impression.

My wife is an Ottolenghi fan -and very able practitioner! So, this was a really good way to celebrate her birthday. This was celebrated with the presentation of a 'cake' with a candle, a really nice gesture.

We loved the food and the whole experience was a treat. So much so, that we have rebooked for our anniversary!

If you are a fan of the maestro, then go for it!

Excellent food.
We would prefer fabric table cloth instead of paper one.
A bit too fast the service between starter and mains, we couldn’t fully appreciate the food, we like to rest , drink and chat between dishes

Lovely spot for a date, busy and lively without being overwhelming. Cocktails are fantastic and food is everything you'd expect from Ottolenghi, with an Asian twist. Pricey, though, so make sure you're prepared!

This place is fabulous! I’m very fussy but this was in my top 5 of all time of restaurants all over the world. One criticism would be that it felt a bit rushed. And that is a shame when you just want to relax, enjoy your food and take your time. Overall, thanks very much. We loved it!

Had the loveliest birthday meal at Nopi on Friday night. The service was excellent and the food incredible, amazing flavours. I really enjoyed the Tapas style of sharing smaller plates so we could sample lots of different dishes. A really memorable occasion, would highly recommend.

We had a really great night. The food was fantastic. The only criticism is that we had one wait staff member who struggled with providing a welcoming atmosphere. They wee obviously having a bad day. The rest of the wait staff were fun and professional.

I have visited NOPI many times , it’s a favourite but I only order vegetable dishes and sides and drink house wine because it’s all so expensive. The aubergine dishes are always fantastic but this time I tried the beetroot rhubarb and Gorgonzola, superb!!! And have the polenta chips gone down in size? Only four this time, sure it was six last time!!

We had a lovely lunch here a few days ago. Everything was very well done from the welcome greeting, table service and the food. The place had a really positive energy about it too and it was nice to see youngsters being as welcomed and looked after as older guests. The food itself was wonderful - what we had hoped for and even better. There were plenty of choices and everything was so wonderfully fresh. Quirky loos which certainly made us smile and giggle!!!

Dinner for two on a weeknight. We arrived early for our reservation and waited at the standing bar, which has less-than-ideal drink service, but they sat us quickly. Our server was lovely and helpful and we tried several lovely dishes — I particularly recommend the crushed carrot and labneh and the chicken in the master stock, which was absolutely perfect. The ambiance is cool, but also welcoming. Very enjoyable.

The food was incredible and the wait staff were nice! They wouldn't allow own birthday cake without charging a huge amount per slice. Fairly pricey but worth it for the delicious food. Quite noisy but good buzz.

Super fresh ingredients and creative flavour combinations make this an excellent lunch spot. Innovative salads / veggie dishes mean that it is a winner with Vegetarians and meateaters alike.
