The Good Egg Soho
shakshuka!). The menus here cater very well to both meat eaters + veggie/vegan diners; 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 eat
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. Enjoy £5 cocktails during their Happy Hour, 4-7pm Mon-Fri, and bottomless brunch every Sun. Great for large groups.

I was expecting and had heard great things. It was just mediocre.
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!
Great food and cocktails as always!!!! Such good flavours and great value for money!
French toast babka to die for, incredibly pleasant service, convenient location.
Lovely team and food. Small portions however for a high price.
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.
It was the first time I’ve been to the Good Egg but there will definitely be more in the future, I loved the menu and I can’t wait to try other dishes too!
Style over substance. Not a huge selection to choose from. May be better for brunch than for dinner.
Brilliant service with a great welcome and delicious food.
My only criticism would be the plastic cutlery - if this was biodegradable, I take this back, but it didn't look like it was, which seemed unnecessary in 2020.
Amazing food and really lovely helpful staff
I hope that they manage to ride the pandemic and things get back to normal for them soon
Deffo worth a visit, really interesting and delicious food
Great food and good service which made for a wonderful atmosphere and memorable evening.
Nice food but COVID prep wasn’t very good - you have to order at the till which creates a huge mass of people queuing at the door and ordering as well as lots of customers walking around. Don’t know why they don’t just do table service with waiters wearing masks ? Or an app? Also crazy loud and busy and they didn’t have any of the milkshakes. I’d avoid until COVID is over
Amazing food ! Portions were bigger than expected which was a big plus ! The food was incredibly tasty and surprising. Five stars for the Halloumi side. For a first time at the good egg, I was impressed and that won’t be my last visit.
The shaksuka didn’t taste great. The social distancing didn’t make much sense, people were jumping around between tables and they weren’t being cleaned between these people moving. We got charged service when we had to go to the counter to order food. They used QR codes for menus, Individual paper bowels and single use cutlery but then we would share bottles of sauces, glasses, water bottles, So why couldn’t we use normal plates and cutlery to eat if the other things are being cleaned?
Food was really nice and came quickly. Lots of space in the courtyard. Staff were friendly. Everything came in eco-friendly takeaway containers to help with hygiene.
Food was ok but not great value for money. Shakshuka was better. Pudding was overpriced
Great food and service , really friendly and efficient staff
Noisy but it was a Saturday afternoon so to be expected!
Was very good and staff are especially lovely
Excellent service. Excellent food! Thank you. Will come back
Such a let down. Paper plates, plastic cutlery and plastic cups with zero service. Why did I pay service for this? Not a great welcome back.
AmaZing food and the service was perfect, it was my friends bday and they made it so special for us!! Def will be coming back ❤️
(The french toast and babka are a dream )
Highly recommend !!
Service was excellent as was the coffee. The food was good! Not the best but very good. Ambiance was great as well. Will return!
The service, busy or not, is probably the biggest let down at The Good Egg.
Nice food in a lovely location, but the service has a long way to go. From serving a pickled martini without a main ingredient (pickle martini, without pickle juice - ummm, what?!) to bringing a bottle of wine with a cork in.... it's the little (big?) things that create an overall impression. You employ nice people, but they need a proper training.
Had a lovely first visit to the Good Egg in Kingly Court with my sister. The food was delicious.. I would definitely return.
Really lovely restaurant. The staff were very friendly and efficient too.
Amazing food, great prices, lovely atmosphere
Good menu, nice food....but the service was really poor. We had to ask for our drinks 4 times and we’d finished our food before they were eventually given to us!
Love this place so keep returning. Food is great and friendly efficient staff.
Terrible service, food was late, server was not attentive, food was cold, just really crappy all around. The original restaurant in Stoke Newington is so much better!
Some of the tastiest food I’ve had! Friendly service! Pretty decor!
When we got our entrants two were missing, we told the waitress and she didn't even acknowledge it or say sorry I will bring them to you. We waited over 40 min for the bill after asking several times.
Food was delicious but service very poor. We had booked a table which hasn’t been set up when we arrived (restaurant wasn’t particularly busy). Waited a very long time to be served so had to go up and ask someone to actually come over and serve us. Lots of staff but none really seemed to care much about the clients - a shame because the food was lovely
So bad compared to stoke newington. Felt like a chain, different person served us every time we ordered something because they were so understaffed we kept having to grab any member of staff we could see. Three things we ordered were then cancelled because they’d run out. So disappointing
Very bad service
Vegan burger had meat in it, and waiter didn’t care
Asked for gluten free bread and waiter said, it’s lucky dip it might not be gluten free
Amazing food and quick service!
Great menu and yummy food but wasn’t impressed with the service. Got our order wrong, waited for desserts for ages and ended up cancelling it as can’t justify a lunch service lasting over 2h!
Do book a table as the place gets busy. Go and try everything on the menu, just beware of the not so great service :)
Service is quick but unfriendly and the food is okay-ish but nothing to do with the “great experience” advertised on their social. The atmosphere is the same - non-existent. Won’t be back.
Service was very good but the food was a bit lacking, especially compared to the stoke newington branch
