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.

Stunning seasonal house cocktails, craft beers, natural wines + desserts are on offer here too, making this the perfect pit stop.

All bookings are made for inside the restaurant only!

No fault on the food: all was super tasty and fresh and polished our plates until the last crumb!
The service was good and we were given a table outside when we saw one was available.

The negative points:
There was no waiting staff to give us any info on the dishes and some elements were quite obscur!
We had to go inside to place our order while it was meant to be a table service and had to watch the other guests to make sure we kept the social distancing rules
A lot of disposable containers used that is just not so good for the planet.

The food was terrific though and i can’t recommend it more! Just be aware of the above.

Portions might be a bit on the small side - make sure you order sides. Food was delicious ! Waiting staff won't come to you, you will have to go order yourself, which created a bit of misunderstanding as we realised too late that we were charged for pitas that hadn't been served. Overall a nice eating experience in a great location.

Honestly incredible! I booked for a leaving lunch with my colleagues and it was a memorable experience.

The food was unique and insanely good, and your team are just lovely. The lady who took our payment and looked after our table was great (sorry, I didn't notice her name but she was working on Thursday 10th Sept at lunchtime!). She was funny and engaging but also left us to it.

I will 100% be back with more people!

The last time I ate at the Good Egg was pre-pandemic and I loved it.

Post pandemic, the food is still great and the members of staff remain welcoming and friendly.

I was dissapointed that on this visit, food was severed on disposable plates with plastic cutlery. Made the place feel like a fast food restaurant.

Style over substance. Not a huge selection to choose from. May be better for brunch than for dinner.

Brilliant service with a great welcome and delicious food.
My only criticism would be the plastic cutlery - if this was biodegradable, I take this back, but it didn't look like it was, which seemed unnecessary in 2020.

Nice food but COVID prep wasn’t very good - you have to order at the till which creates a huge mass of people queuing at the door and ordering as well as lots of customers walking around. Don’t know why they don’t just do table service with waiters wearing masks ? Or an app? Also crazy loud and busy and they didn’t have any of the milkshakes. I’d avoid until COVID is over

Amazing food ! Portions were bigger than expected which was a big plus ! The food was incredibly tasty and surprising. Five stars for the Halloumi side. For a first time at the good egg, I was impressed and that won’t be my last visit.

The shaksuka didn’t taste great. The social distancing didn’t make much sense, people were jumping around between tables and they weren’t being cleaned between these people moving. We got charged service when we had to go to the counter to order food. They used QR codes for menus, Individual paper bowels and single use cutlery but then we would share bottles of sauces, glasses, water bottles, So why couldn’t we use normal plates and cutlery to eat if the other things are being cleaned?

The service, busy or not, is probably the biggest let down at The Good Egg.
Nice food in a lovely location, but the service has a long way to go. From serving a pickled martini without a main ingredient (pickle martini, without pickle juice - ummm, what?!) to bringing a bottle of wine with a cork in.... it's the little (big?) things that create an overall impression. You employ nice people, but they need a proper training.

When we got our entrants two were missing, we told the waitress and she didn't even acknowledge it or say sorry I will bring them to you. We waited over 40 min for the bill after asking several times.

Food was delicious but service very poor. We had booked a table which hasn’t been set up when we arrived (restaurant wasn’t particularly busy). Waited a very long time to be served so had to go up and ask someone to actually come over and serve us. Lots of staff but none really seemed to care much about the clients - a shame because the food was lovely

So bad compared to stoke newington. Felt like a chain, different person served us every time we ordered something because they were so understaffed we kept having to grab any member of staff we could see. Three things we ordered were then cancelled because they’d run out. So disappointing
