As of May 17th, we'll be back open indoors + will be taking reservations, Monday-Friday, indoors only.
Please note: no reservations can be made for our outside courtyard area or on weekends - but we welcome walk-ins for both + do our best to set you swiftly + efficiently!

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, wines + desserts are on offer here too, making this the perfect pit stop.

Good service when they came. Food was not good, my chicken schwarma in a pita was almost inedible from the amount of vinegar on the pickled vegetables and the quantity of that with just a little chicken sprinkled on the top.
Won't be coming back

Lovely spot, great atmosphere, loads of options on the menu and really nice food. Very friendly & helpful staff especially the young Czech lad who went out his way to make it a special birthday for my gf.

Rather disappointing , more attempt at style than substance. Bizzare choice of crockery , very small plates making eating rather hard even though portion size was pretty small. Water glasses left unfilled. Shame as I really wanted to like it but won’t return.

Second time going to this restaurant, this time for dinner, and wasn't disappointed!
Food arrived very quickly and dishes were flavoursome and well presented.

Great availability for booking ahead on the day. Relatively lively, as with all restaurants in Kingly Court.

Definitely try a dessert, we shared the brownie ice cream sandwich which was a lovely way to round off the meal.

Would recommend!

Very yummy. I had the aubergine shawarma with the halloumi side followed by the cheesecake. Best cheesecake I have eaten in a long time. All food was great. Will definitely return.

The menu, quality of food, sizes of portions and the whole presentation seems to have downgraded a lot.
We used to love the food there, but it’s our first time back since after all the lockdown and, unfortunately we had a major disappointment and it was a special occasion as well. There is nothing wrong with the place, just not what it used to be, so we won’t be coming back.

I was so excited to be going back here, however, the breakfast menu doesn’t seem as innovative or exciting as it used to be. The lox breakfast item was really underwhelming… weird egg patty some cream cheese on the bottom and dry top half brioche bun some sliced pickles on the side - it’s not at all how I remember it pre lockdown, sadly… Meh 😒

Service was extremely poor, staff were unhelpful and slow - we were forgotten about constantly. This was hours after the lunchtime rush so no excuse. Food was tasty but experimental was ruined by bad service - especially as it was my partners birthday and I had put that on the booking!

Pre theatre dinner. Great service - attentive and friendly.
Great food.
Not a fan of the scan the code for a menu but guess that is future.
All in all great experience- would go again and would recommend.

Before the pandemic, I was a regular at the Good Egg, Stoke Newington. The menu was a bit more Middle Eastern and the flavours very exotic.
The one in Soho reminded me eating in a canteen by the street. The flavours were not original although the food was very well cooked but nothing exotic about it.
The waiter forgot to bring us a plate and we had to remind him. We were quite disappointed to be honest.
And the level of noise doesn't allow a lot of space for a convo.

First time in this restaurant with 3 of my friends and a baby. The food was amazing! Super delicious! The staff was extremely kind and helped us out so much as we were celebrating birthdays.. they let us have our own cake and they brought it out too! I am beyond pleased with the performance of this restaurant! Would highly recommend it!!

I was not that impressed overall. The food was a bit bland (apart from being very salty). The hummus was very think (like a cement) and the tonic in the gin and tonic flat (menu described it being a lot fancier than it was) Menu felt quite limited. That kind of food is usually more interesting and tasty.

Great food, particularly the aubergine dish. The drinks were okay, quite a limited cocktail menu. It can be a bit noisy but it's a good atmosphere. The service was ok but in our case they forgot to put our food order through and only realised after an hour's wait! Got a free round of drinks as a result 🤷🏾‍♀️
