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.

£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.
Good that they were attentive but obv we were interrupted quite a lot. Overall, a good place for drinks and food.

This was our second visit to the restaurant and despite the slow service the first time around, we decided to come back as the food was very good.
this time the food again took forever and when it finally arrived, my pita bread was rock solid and my husband's dish had a bug crawling across it. Needless to say we complained and the dishes were taken away. We were told that unfortunately it would take another ten minutes to make them again.
Good service would have been to offer us a snack or free drink to tie us over, but nothing. While the food that eventually arrived (we are talking an hour after we placed the order) was very good and we enjoyed, I would not go back given the poor service. It also didn't feel like they cared much.
When the bill came, my husband asked for his dish to be taken off, which they did, so that was at least some consolation. Unfortunately not enough for us to want to return to this place.
Shame, as the food was decent.

Some of the food was lovely, such as the startes, but everything else was not good at all. The pastrami was very dry and very old almost like it had freeze burn. THe fried chicken did not have any taste at all. The mezze for startes ( the whipped feta and the bread) was delicious. However overall the food was not good enough. I think there is a lot of potential when looking at the menu but the execution of the food is not good. The service weas great and the location and the venue is also good. I think i willl ave to try the brunch menu to see if that is better.

We had a pretty good lunch at The Good Egg, enjoying a decent selection of well-executed Israeli comfort food. Service was however disappointingly slow and slapdash. To compensate for our 45-minute wait between courses (!) one of our dishes eventually arrived with an unrequested merguez sausage slipped into it. Luckily, none of us is a veggie! Apparently, there is a prix fixe menu at lunchtime, but no-one bothered to show us this, leaving us free to order from the pricier a la carte menu. Cheeky. Overall the food is worth a return visit but next time we'll need manage our wait staff more proactively.

Came here for a birthday meal with friends and was thoroughly disappointed. They text you to confirm the reservation and ask you if it's for an occasion and so I selected accordingly. Why ask if not doing anything for it? Poor form. Slow food service. Slow to get the bill. Slow to get drinks. Food really nothing to rave about. Expensive for what you actually get. I eat out a lot and don't mind paying for good food. Was looking forward to coming here but maybe Stoke Newington original branch is better and maybe just for brunch. But I have to say I'm not in any hurry to try it and nor would I come back here. Pity.

We went with friends to catch up for lunch and had the express menu. Very good value for money. The advice though is a bit slow when you need to pay, we went on our lunch hour as our office is 5mns away and whilst food was served in moderate time, asking for the bill took a while as staff was busy and didn't pay us attention
