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.

This is a terrific place which offers a variety of incredibly creative wishes. The service is absolutely top. And overall the price is justified.
We love it: all ages mix and everyone seems to be having a good time.

Great birthday afternoon with too much champagne, food great, staff great. It is a bit on the expensive side but we should have gone for a bottle instead of glasses... our bad. loved it though

This is a memorable restaurant! The food is excellent, wonderfully prepared, beautifully presented. The service is efficient and unhurried. From “nibbles”to desert the food was different than anything we’ve ever had before. We will definitely return.

We had a very nice time. We shared a couple of small plates and the sole and side salad. Could’ve done without the salad as it was unremarkable. The sole was cooked well but over salted. The eggplant dish as well as pork belly and our coconut ice cream dessert was delicious.

Terrible service. Was seated right beside the door beside draft. We were ignored by staff on many occasions. Had to get up to the till to pay due to no one coming over after serveral attempts at getting their attention. Food was very good. Chocolate ganache was far too rich. Overall really gutted as we love Ottolenghi and his recipes.

I would recommend to someone I knew enjoys Ottolenghi's food. It is of a kind and the restaurant entirely fitting in that sense. But it is close to overpriced and some of the dishes were underwhelming. There were a few outstanding ones, the endless complementary water and very friendly staff quite fabulous, but overall not a 5-star experience. Odd to say that the food let the side down.

Nopi is outstanding! Delicious food and cocktails. Excellent service. Highly recommend. Try the Saffron Chase champagne cocktail to start. I tried a number of dishes and everything was fantastic.

Having cooked from his books for many years, on our visit to London this was a required stop. Nothing disappointed with combinations of flavors that worked well, were intriguing and surprising. Highlights include the courgette fritters (remarkably light), octopus (remarkably tender), pork belly (deliciously crisp and crackly). Calm and relaxed environment where we could chat at our table despite the crowd in the room.

Unfortunately, I was disappointed with the food as it wasn't the quality I was expecting. My husband ordered a small plate and the meat was very chewy. When we pointed this out to our waitperson we were told that is how it comes.

Lived up to expectations, a wonderful experience in terms of food and overall experience/ambience. The menu is unique, and manages to both be true to Ottolenghi and yet also something of a creative departure from 'typical' Ottolenghi. We loved it!

Unfortunately we were served tuna with our Vegan meal. That spoiled our appetite. The bill was completely cancelled.

Unlike at some of Ottolenghi’s restaurants you don’t kneed to understand Hebrew to read the menu here but much like the others the quality of the food was outstanding. We had a selection of small dishes and the flavours, especially in some of the veggie dishes were fantastic. Would definitely return.

I took my son for a birthday dinner while on a holiday from Australia. The menu choices were huge and the waiter was happy to make recommendations which were delicious. Loved all the flavors. Wine list was extensive. They even surprised him with a birthday sorbet. The decor and atmosphere were really pleasant.

Overall excellent, we suggest menu items be delivered in more staggered fashion so that individual attention can be devoted to each delicious selection. Service staff extremely friendly and helpful. Be sure to stop at the very interesting loo!

We went for a pre theatre dining option at Nopi before a show. It's different to other options in the west end because it's a sharing taster of different things on the menu. Each one of the 5 was delicious.
We sat at the bar counter because we like the hustle and bustle and seeing everything in action. But the dining area behind us was spacious and minimally designed. The staff were very attentive and explained all the dishes coming out. The cocktail list was great with classics but also interesting some novel options like sumac martini. One of the highlights were actually the toilets, an array of mirrored walls that would rival the hall at Versailles! Really enjoyed it and would recommend for ambience and food.

Arrived at 17.30 as booked. Was shown to the furthest corner of the restaurant where my spouse didn't enjoy the bare wall but did enjoy the canvas which was at an angle to the table. As we were in the city for the week to enjoy the world of theatre we were surprised at that hour of the evening that a pre theatre menu had to be asked for, something that we used to after a few days. Meal and staff attention was excellent.

Refreshing decor and exquisite dishes to go with it. The burrata dish was heightened with the accompaniment of peaches and coriander seeds. The valdeon cheesecake was as light as a soufflé but packed with tons of flavour. The mackerel was perfectly cooked perfectly paired with the pistachio sambal. The well seasoned and cooked duck was delicious with the shitake ketchup giving it an edge. Another great ottolenghi restaurant 👌🏽
