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.

Fantastic food, quick and friendly service. A great little place to eat that doesn’t feel like you’re engulfed in the middle of central london

Lovely service , with outdoor heated seating area. Lovely experience.

Just as an improvement, they could antibac the tables between guests -- as the knives and forks are placed on smallish napkins so come into contact with the tables, but I think they just forgot in our case because we were keen to get a seat in the heated area!

The food was great, the waiter was so lovely and helpful although he was very busy dealing with all the customers.

Only negative point is that it was a bit chilly inside the restaurant.

We’ll definitely be back!

Couldn’t fault the staff or the food, it was all amazing. The vegan options were great and loved the different side options and mezze they had to offer. Will definitely be back to try more!

Delicious brunch with the meditteranean/Middle Eastern twist. Would recommend the hummus, za'tar chicken and chocolate babka to finish!

The toilet was so dirty and unpleasant. I had to call a member of stuff to go and clean it . I think for any restaurant is unacceptable specially for the ones in the central London .

Superb food! Will dream about that Sabih during lockdown... cocktails were also very dreamy.

Waiters were friendly and ready to crack a joke!

Will definitely come back!

Brilliant staff and brilliant food. Didn't love the semi outdoor courtyard bit we chose to sit in but of course there was the option to sit indoors, would go for that next time.
Our server went above and beyond.

The food was mostly okay, but the mains that we had (octopus) were not to a high quality. The meat of the octopus was like a crab stick, rather than the texture it should be and had a strange gravely quality to it. The fries were nice and the halloumi bites, although tasty, were spongy as if microwaved.

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.
