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.

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.

The food is excellent but I prefer the other restaurants. I missed a bit the large usual portions.

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!

Lovely brunch. We really enjoyed the food. The shakshuka in particular was outstanding! Our only critique is that it is priced slightly on the high end for breakfast.

We had the feeling that we should leave the place as soon as possible. We would have expected more special food particularly for deserts. The food was not comparable with the famous recipes we make for dessert.

really good selection for non vegetarians. Odd to have the vegetarian options significantly reduced/destroyed by single ingredients, such as rennit based cheese in the Valdeon cheesecake, Shiitake and mitzithra mushroom rotolo, Bagna Cauda, kale...if only the dish could have been served with the anchovy sauce seperately, parmesan polenta chips
Nice staff

Excellent.
A little bit noisy for us.
We would have appreciated the dishes were served with some peaces of bread or something equivalent.

We had lunch as well as dinner at Nopi. Both times were an absolute treat. Our trips to London would not be the same without the privilege and pleasure to dine at Ottolenghi’s. The staff is wonderful, very friendly and pleasant.

Very beautifully presented and light dishes. A couple of lovely vegan options (would be good to see if a couple more adaptations could be done) - and good coffee. A really nice spot for a catch-up with good ambiance.

Tasty but small portions for the price. The pork belly was lovely, the sea bass was just okay.
