Good Vegetarian Options
Our Soho-based restaurant has some of the Ottolenghi trademarks – platters full of salads greet customers as they arrive, a menu which celebrates bold flavours – but NOPI has a very different feel to the Ottolenghi delis. The marble is white, the brass is golden, the art is dynamic, the pace is a little faster. Upstairs we offer individual dining tables accommodating up to 6 guests. Downstairs we have two large communal/chef's tables overlooking our open plan kitchen and larder. NOPI’s menu changes according to the seasons with bold flavours and colours, broadly based on Mediterranean, Middle-eastern and Asian ingredients, using lots of herbs and spices. NOPI is open for breakfast, lunch, pre-theatre, dinner, and post-theatre.

Food was very average. Some of the dishes too salty and lacking refinement. Been here before and food quality was way higher. Also service was very rushed. We were told from the beginning we only have strictly two hours which although fair is always a bit off putting. The waiter rushed throughout as if we needed to leave within an hour. Overall very mediocre experience! My boyfriend also felt sick after the food so we will not be returning for sure.

First visit to an Ottolenghi restaurant and it did nothing but impress. Friendly welcoming service and great atmosphere with exceptional food.
Couldn’t fault a thing.

Great food - especially for vegetarians. Really accommodating for your needs. It’s a shame as it was my husband’s birthday I told them but no little birthday fuss was made. But all in all great place.

Quity ingredients, creativity and infallible technique at a price point that is very reasonable. A favorite address for breakfast and one I am long overdue on visiting later in the day.

I was able to book our reservation one hour beforehand. The restaurant was pretty busy we got slightly delayed even though we arrived 10 minutes before our actual time. However the service was so sweet and gave us a complimentary starter because of the delay. The food was kind of new to us but we liked it. We ordered the roasted aubergine, seared squid, grilled whole sea bass, and the parmesan chips. It was lightly new kind of cuisine to us which we liked.

None of the 8 sharing dishes we had wowed, or even intrigued. Very loud. Expensive for the quality. Very disappointing overall

Had to wait for a table which we had booked but very friendly staff made up for that. Very interesting well presented food and a good bottle of reasonably priced wine. Would definitely go back.

The food at NOPI is so stunning that one can forgive the noise level (which is not a deliberate tactic but rather a function of the space). Service is intelligent and attentive and the wines are thoughtfully chosen. The vegetable dishes are exceptional but meat and fish eaters will not be disappointed-creativity runs throughout the menu.

Pre theatre meal
Loved the ambience and interior decor and it’s location us perfect.
Difficult to know who was our server but everyone was very helpful.
We chose a variety of vegetable sides which were lovely and fresh but felt a little bit overpriced..

I have recommended Nopi to my friends consistently over the years and have taken them regularly. The food quality remains consistently excellent and the staff are always friendly and helpful. It continues to be a great treat to come to Nopi.It has to be a treat as it's not cheap to eat there but I recognise the amount of work which goes into those dishes and they are delicious.

We turned up early on a rainy evening and it wasn’t a problem to have a drink at the bar. The staff were very helpful & friendly. Food was excellent.

It was all too rushed. The food was served so fast, it arrived at out table even before our drinks. I felt they wanted to get rid of us as soon as possible. Disappointing.

Celebrating my husbands birthday. Great food and service. Somewhat expensive but otherwise very enjoyable especially when a dessert with a candle was presented to my husband!

We ended up waiting 30 minutes for our seats despite arriving on time. However, the staff were very nice and gave us updates, and were we given a few free appetisers with our meal. Also in the end they put us at a nice table instead of the bar. So the experience was up and down but overall positive.

Great food and buzzy atmosphere. Service a little lacking in warmth but overall a good lunch experience without being first class. Noise levels just about bearable.

A busy place which is high in demand any time of the day. We went for lunch and after a short wait were seated. Friendly staff and many different waiters serving continually make the service fast but not really personal. The girl who took the order recommended 3 dishes per person( min) which unfortunately was way to much and we had to leave food . The quality and also presentation is very good and withhold the visit. Prices are on the upper end.

Always excellent food and reliable service. I'd go more often it wasn't always booked. This time enjoyed particularly the burrata with coriander seeds (a classic on the menu); the aubergine with tahini; the gorgeously spiced bavette with very light polenta fries; and the chestnut ice cream dessert (not as heavy as it sounds) but everything was fabulous and great recommendation on wine from the sommelier

Love the food Ottolenghi is a genius but service edge is going - so popular it feels like they don’t have to make the effort - staff are good people but it feels like a take it or leave us attitude to service has crept in - all a bit haphazard too - forgot to take the drinks order - and a waiter squeezing past people waiting next to our table spilt food on my wife. It all feels a bit rushed to move us on - we came with 2 guests and they left wondering why we wanted them to share our previous experience.

Our stay at Nopi was even more than we expected. Excellent food, very good service, with lots of really good recommendations! We were offered a little wine tasting prior deciding, which one we take. We’ll come back.
