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.

Special Offers

Celebrate Christmas Eve with family and friends!

We do Christmas a little differently @ The Good Egg. With a spectacular space right in the centre of Soho + a festive menu of Middle Eastern flavours, we really know how to throw a Tel Aviv party. We are open on Christmas Eve between 8am and 3.30pm

The food was great. However, service was slow... took about 45 mins for food to come - and forgot one of the main courses.

The hummus and pita bread are a must have and the fried chicken with the honey sauce is my favorite! I've also tried the cauliflower main dish and that was tasty as well.

Hello,

Overall the experience is very pleasant. I would recommend looking at the seating, perhaps make them a bit more comfortable and welcoming. The music was a tad too loud but overall great food and service

Disappointing experience - very small menu and when we went (booking for 20.30) two items had sold out. The waitress seemed determined to push the ribs, fortunately for her, there wasn't a huge amount else to choose from.
Breads were excellent but the mains were average.
Upon checking the receipt, we had been double charged for the wine.

The food here is so delicious! Highly recommend getting some of the breads and mezzo dips - we went for challa pretzel bread (which I highly recommend) and the flat bread (also delicious) with pumpkin hummus and the aubergine + pistachio, both of which were incredible.

I also had the goat shawarma which was great, so much flavour and the pitta was so fluffy!!

Never again, VERY RUDE WAITRESS.
The food was acceptable even if we asked for a dairy free dish that has never arrived.
When I asked where my meal was, I have been answered in a very rude way.
I asked then for a vegan dish and I have been told there was milk in the bun (I wonder how can some food containing milk be defined "vegan").

I was trying to call the waitress for the bill but nobody was looking for us and we had to wait more than 30 minutes.

Good brunch place. The portion was a little on the small side for the money and the Bloody Mary was basic compared to some other places I’ve been to. But having said that, I would go back as the food was good and it’s in a convenient central location.

I’d recommend Good Egg for a central not overpriced breakfast/brunch but I wouldn’t rave about it. Parts of the Iraqi pita were delicious (the egg and aubergine) but as a whole it was lacking the wow factor! And the crispy Haloumi was disappointingly cold and not so fresh. Coffee also not amazing. Nice staff though!

I am a big fan of the Stoke Newington branch so I knew I would love the food. In keeping with it's location, this venue is a bit grittier and loud but that is the same with most venues in Kingly Court.

Staff were lovely- food was perfect as always- and happy hour a good addition.

We both loved our evening- thank you

Overpriced - won’t make any changes to menu so ended up having a soft boiled egg in my food which I really don’t like so completely ruined the taste for me! There is a disclaimer on the menu stating no changes will be made to any dishes as they believe in their menu and that the combinations work which is fine if you enjoy the particular suggestions. We all have likes and dislikes and as I am the paying customer then surely I should be allowed to ask for the food to be served up to my taste. I only asked for the egg to be hard boiled instead of soft boiled - a matter of a few minutes which would have probably ended with a more favourable review! We won’t be returning!
