Just off Soho’s Carnaby Street in Kingly Court + serving food all day long, The Good Egg is a spectacular all day dining destination for a Tel Aviv-inspired breakfast, brunch, lunch or dinner (try the award-winning shakshuka!).

The menus here cater very well to both meat eaters + veggie/vegan diners alike; central to the restaurant's vibrant atmosphere is a huge clay oven + long open kitchen bar, where guests can choose to dine while they enjoy the theatre of the chefs at work, unless they’d prefer a table away from the action. Guests can also dine al fresco on the terrace – heated + covered Oct-Mar, and open + sunny during the summer months.

Stunning seasonal house cocktails, craft beers, natural wines + desserts are on offer here too, making this the perfect pit stop before or after visiting the many theatres or other entertainment spots that lie just a few minutes’ walk away.

Great for large groups.

Food was delicious but the service was really poor. There seemed to only be 2 waiters for the entire restaurant and it was impossible to get their attention and very slow.

I have been to the Good Egg a few times now and am always really impressed by the food. There are combinations of flavours and ingredients that are new - to me at least - and I have never had anything I did not enjoy. The staff are very friendly and welcoming which makes this a great place to go with friends for a relaxed time sharing some great food.

Had planned a bday meal, got kicked out after one hour with no apology or explaination all we were told was the kitchen had an issue and needed to shut. Spent over £90 and barely got the chance to eat, disappointing experience for a birthday brunch that was pre booked.

Enjoyed a superb brunch at this buzzing Israeli restaurant in Kingly Court. The shakshuka and pretzel challah with whipped feta dip were some of the best we have had in London and the strawberry shrub with soda was the perfect refresher for a summer day. Service was a bit uneven on a busy Saturday morning - sometimes there was quite a large gap between courses.

The food was great and the restaurant is really tasteful. There was one vegan & gluten free option which unfortunately consisted of taking away the egg and bread but not substituting with something else - but cost the same. Please could you add some substitute options :-)

If you dont mind places with a lot of people, then this one is fine. The food was good, a bit overpriced for what we received. Food good, service very slow though. They also got the order wrong. I would give this place 3/5 stars as the food was fine but service and atmosphere put me off a bit

Overall it was a nice meal out, the starters were very good, and good value for money (we got all the "noshes") however the main meal was a disappointment. We opted to share the ZTC and a couple of sides and asked for this to arrive after our starters, however, it was brought out in the middle of our starters so we sent it back. I suspect this was then kept warm for the next 20 minutes as when it arrived the greens were cold, the chicken hard and the fries soggy. Not at all impressed for what is meant to be one of their star dishes. The cheesecake we had for dessert was nice enough, not overly sweet and a decent portion. Service was a tad haphazard, we struggled to get people's attention and after the main course incident, it was definitely a tad frosty. Regardless I think I would return, but just for drinks and nibbles.

We booked here to be close to the Palladium and it seemed to be perfect food for a hot day (33c). We loved everything that we had - burnt aubergine, zoo fries and fried chicken. Everything was really fresh and tasty and so felt that it was good value for money - including the £5 cocktails. I will definitely be back to try out the brunch menu. Its an ideal pre-theatre dinner venue as the service was very quick - but unhurried.

This was the second time I visited The Good Egg. It has a great vibe, beautiful and yummy plates of food, and really helpful staff.

£5 happy hour cocktails was a great start. Food was delicious. We were asked if we needed anything or if they could clear the table quite a lot even though we clearly still had food and drinks on the table which was good and bad.
