Spent a birthday present gift voucher from a year back and while no special occasion, there was a sense of something a bit special. It was just perfect. Loved the service, friendly but respectful and not stupid chatty. The food just made me well up, and the wine better than anywhere in a long while.
Especially the chicken dish was excellent.
Delicious food, yummy cocktails and attentive but not invasive service.
They even acknowledged my birthday with a decorated dessert.
Thank you x
Amazing food and lovely staff made it a very memorable occasion.
We have eaten here many times cocktails were not as good as prior times. Food good not great this time except deserts excellent.
Fresh, fascinating, fabulous!
A pre theatre dinner for us and what enjoyable food. Everything had taste amped to the max. Highlights for me were the spiced nuts,the ocean trout perfectly cooked and feasted divine and the smoked ribs with mint and chilli. Service was delightfully friendly with a wonderful win suggestion. Our fellow diners were friendly. A lovely experience
Had an amazing meal and were served by amazing staff. They were personable, friendly and had a sense of humour!
Starters better than mains. Nice atmosphere. Pretty expensive. Very poor wine quality
What a wonderful experience! A meal you want to savor and they let you. The staff was knowledgeable and happy to chat with you about the food, the chefs, other great restaurants in the area. We want to return because there were so many items we just couldn't order (there were only 4 of us) on the menu. Highly recommend the spring whole chicken and the cheesecake.
Really enjoyed going to this restaurant. It had a great atmosphere with lots of diners but it didn’t feel over crowded. The food was adventurous with interesting ingredients and it all tasted amazing.
I decided to go for an Ottolenghi trifecta - Spitalfields a few nights ago, NOPI last night & Islington later in the week. I’m definitely not canceling my Islington reservation. The waiter made some excellent suggestions - aubergene something, something with truffle & a rib. As you can see, I’m not big on details but I know what I like, and I loved the experience
Though Nopi is an expensive option for me and my family ( from the Midlands for a 3 day holiday) it was a really special treat and well worth paying for! Each mouthful of food was to savour.
The food was of the inventive high standard one has come to expect from Ottolenghi/Scully. The wines were extremely interesting and we were given three samples to taste before ordering.
The service was quite outstanding.
The food was ordinary too many different conflicting ingredients my taste Enjoyed it the last time about two years ago
Wonderful staff, delicious food! Honest and good advice about accompying wines.
Lovely food, great service and very relaxed. Definitely be back as soon as possible
Every bit as wonderful as I imagined it.Delicious creative and surprising food.
I love this place; vibrant atmosphere, delicious food and interesting cocktails!
We came from New York for our 30th anniversary
And it exceeded all our expectations. I’ve been cooking from
The cookbooks for years and was so excited to be at my favorite chef’s
Restaurant. Thanks so much for an amazing experience.
Fantastic food, wine and service! Three of us ordered the pre-theatre menu. Two of the mains contained seafood, so the restaurant added another main for me, since I have allergies. My two friends enjoyed both the trout and pork belly, and my added beef short rib was divine. We shared a bottle of wine, which was perfect. Thirty minutes after I left, the restaurant called to say they wanted to refund us the price of my non-seafood substitute! Wow! Not only generous to provide the substitute, but to call and refund 18GBP of our charges for it! Just go! I’m telling all my friends, as many of them travel to London from the US and Paris.
Wonderful flavours, enjoyed sharing plates and chatting with friends , the valdeon cheesecake is not to be missed
Fantastic lunch at NOPI, i was looking forward since long. We liked it so much that we tried another location (Begravia counter) during the same weekend to enjoy Yotam Ottolenghi's food once more. Congrats this concept rules! Please open one in Belgium!!!!
Consistently brilliant food and service. Five stars!
Pre theater. I could eat there everyday
Really nice restaurant serving great fresh food. Loads of vegetarian options but if you want meat the smoked duck is great.
Very welcoming. Lovely staff. However we found it much too noisy so staff had to crouch down to hear and be heard. Food was good but the menu that day was too heavy on labneh/yoghurt which we found too rich. The toilets are amazing/frightening!!
My grandson and I enjoyed our meal very much, 5 vegetable dishes and melt in the mouth trout. Service was friendly and helpful, ambience warm. Lemon posset a triumph. My second visit, big fan . Ruth, Melbourne, Australia
The food was amazing with so many flavors bursting in your mouth. The combinations were creative and surprising and most importantly - delicious. The service was also outstanding. Before arriving, I had questions so I emailed the restaurant. They responded promptly and thoroughly - which was most helpful as we were dining with our 9 year old. We were on our way to the theatre and they were able to take care of us and not feel rushed in any way. Everyone, from the hostess to the wait staff, was friendly and professional. The experience was fabulous! Will be back next time I return to London. As an aside - I own most of Ottolenghi’s cookbooks - I love them all...which is what led me to the restaurant.
the array of salads is extraordinary--it's hard to choose and every one is delicious and interesting with unexpected flavours. the waiter was very helpful sorting out our choices and telling us if we had ordered too much food (easy to do, everything seems so tempting). The cost adds up--but we thought it was worth it.
As an Ottolenghi disciple this was a highlight of my trip to the UK. Our palates were delighted by the complex flavors, textures, and freshness of the dishes. The kitchen brings herbs to a new level! Our server was fantastic- knowledgeable and friendly. Don’t miss the mashed carrots and lemon dessert!
Awesome food and nice atmosphere. Really enjoyed our lunch
Service and food were both incredible.
My friends and I had a delightful experience at Nopi. The food was exquisite - a beautiful blend of interesting, familiar and unfamiliar ingredients. The service was excellent, from the friendly, efficient welcome when we arrived to the waiter and waitress who served us during the meal. They were knowledgable and gave us useful suggestions about quantities etc so that we could judge how much to order. They also knew exactly when to be there and when not to be there - they were attentive but not obtrusive.
I had a conference in London but not enough time to eat where I wanted (planned itinerary) UNTIL my flight back to the U.S. was canceled and a replacement flight was not available for 2 days! The airline put us up at a hotel near Heathrow. As I was moping about my husband noted, “Hey, that Tube Station across the way is on the Piccadilly Line. Isn’t Nopi near a stop on that Line?” My sorrow turned to glee when I realized this additional unexpected 40 hours in London would result in an opportunity for a fabulous lunch at one of my favorite restaurants in London!
As expected, every dish was a gem but tasted especially wonderful under the circumstances. Nopi turned a disappointment into a delight.
Great food in a nice setting. Friendly, helpful and attentive service
Wochenendtripp nach London, Abendessen im Nopi, geniales Geburtstaggeschenk für meine Liebste!
Sehr netter Empfang, zwanglos und sehr zuvorkommender Service, das Essen köstlich, ein Kunstwerk!
Just go! Absolutely a must for any foodie in London. We love it here. Back every time we’re in town.
We loved Nopi! The food was creative and exciting yet accessible and comforting. Our waiter did an excellent job recommending dishes and suggesting pairings. The food came in perfect sequence. We left feeling full but not heavy. One of the best meals I’ve had.
