Way too expensive for what it was. 12,5% service charge totally not worth it

Outstanding food! One of the best meals I ever had!! Would definitely return to try EVERYTHING else on the menu. Amazing presentation of the food, too. Service was outstanding.
Only downside: even though I like the concept of sharing tables in general, it was a bit cramped and I could not enjoy the meal the way I wanted to. Might be a relaxed place for lunch, but not the best atmosphere for dinner. I would recommend booking a table upstairs for dinner.

We enjoyed an excellent meal & superb cocktails too! Sharing table was lovely, we barely noticed we were sharing as it was huge with a gorgeous large vase of flowers placed centrally which put a natural barrier between parties but in a good way! We were close to the kitchen but didn't notice any noise, the only thing we noticed were the occasional staff visit to the storage shelves next to the table. We were late but Nopi accommodated us regardless and we were not rushed away from our table, just politely advised that the next booking was imminent & invited to finish our drinks upstairs at the skinny bar. All the staff were lovely & we will definitely recommend - thank you!

Amazing food and calm setting in the middle of a hectic part of town. One caution - afternoon reservations are only 1h30 which felt a bit rushed - they literally cleared plates we were still eating and no time for dessert because the reservation was up.

I was not a big fan. Whilst the food was creative and the occasional dish tasted amazing, overall we had a few meals that didn't taste that great. The mutton shawarma came with a big chunk of fat, and we asked for the duck to be taken back to be slightly fried as it was smoked and way too chewy when it first arrived. The waiting staff that looked after us were amazing and very accommodating and they made a big difference to the overall experience.

We followed advice to order small plates and share: with four of us that meant we ordered more then half the small dishes on the menu. Everything tasted fresh and interesting and was very well presented. The mutton was a favourite and also a beautifully made baked cheese pudding whose name I regret not writing down. We started with cocktails from the left column (Nopi originals - champagne gin and saffron was a winner and not too dear as these things go) and enjoyed a bottle of Musar, the Hochar vineyard variant with less oak, muscular and darkly mineral, a great accompaniment to the spicy food. We'll definitely be back!
One additional word of advice: This isn't an easy place to book but with a bit of planning you can get places on the sharing tables downstairs. If you are worried about sharing tables, don't be: we got four seats around a corner and could chat as privately as we could have done on our own table.
