Mediterranean
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.

Was looking forward to the menu as it sounded really fresh and interesting. Very disappointed in the sharing portions which were very small and overpriced. Left feeling hungry and the tastes were rather disappointing. On the other hand the service was excellent although you were automatically charged for this.

Really disappointing. We felt that Ottolenghi was coasting on his reputation. The best dish was the aubergine. The other dishes were fine but not memorable.

Hair came out in the food. No apologies from the staff. Had to ask for another fork myself after they took the dish+fork with piece of food and hair in it because the staff who took it away didnt bother to come back with another one. They asked if we want it cooked fresh but obviously not. They cancelled the dish and threw in couple wine glasses we had as free at the end but wont return again.

The setting is beautiful and of the course the toilets are stunning, but I just find the food severely lacking. The portion sizes are minuscule and my tapioca and granola was nothing to write home about. I wasn’t lusting over my friend’s orders either. My grapefruit juice was off and had a strange sherbet tang. Overall really disappointed.

Brilliant for a special brunch before 12pm matinee. We ate a lot to take us through to the evening.
Restaurant was surprisingly quiet but brunch is only open for 1.5 hours before lunch. It was fine because we could really relax, enjoy the food and service. Recommend the black rice pudding, tapioca- granola, tofu, curried lentils - in fact - everything was good.

I thought I loved Ottolenghi but I loved NOPI even more. The trout was the best fish I've ever had. I ate alone, and the service was the perfect amount of attentive and respectful of privacy. Truly lovely dining upstairs and people watching.

Absolutely amazing food - we tried almost all of the starters and had the chicken for a “main course”. Very jealous that there aren’t any Ottolenghi restaurants in the US yet. The service was very attentive and we enjoyed our dinner immensely.

It was fantastic to eat such a revelatory meal in such a relaxed atmosphere. It was full and bustling, but not stuffy at all. Our waiter led us to all his favorite dishes, and we had a fabulous evening tasting a little bit of everything. The vegetable-centric menu was inventive and fresh and all-around delicious. It totally lived up to the high expectations we had.

A great menu with lots of options for vegetarians and meat eaters alike. Love the sharing concept as allows you to try various items off the menu. Everything was tasty and flavourful without being over the top. The ambience and decor was lovely and service was okay without being amazing. Would definitely come back!

NOPI was everything I could have hoped for and more. The hostess was kind and allowed me to store my bag in the front so I didn't have to drag it with me to the table. The food was delicious and unique. I cannot wait to visit again. The only minor thing was that our waitress disappeared at the end and started helping another table. A different waitress helped us settle our bill. Would have been nice to have continuity with the waitress through to the end of our visit. Otherwise, incredible! Thanks NOPI.

We went on a Saturday afternoon and it was exceptionally busy. There was a slight delay in getting our table but the service was good. This is not a place to eat in a hurry. Go in a group to enjoy the variety. Needless to say the food was amazing and there were multiple veg options . Highly recommend.

Really enjoyed this my first visit to a Nopi restaurant. The food was delicious but considering the cost I felt the portions were rather on the small side. I was with my son, who recommended the venue, for his 40th birthday celebration. The service was fine but the 3 vegetable dishes came first and the fish and meat some time after we had eaten the vegetables, which I wasn't sure was normal or just not coordinated very well! As we were engrossed in catching up with news I didn't query this. The waiter was very pleasant and the service and care taken could not be faulted. The toilets are amazing in all my travels I have never seen anything like them. Everywhere was clean and tastefully decorated. I would definitely go again. Especially loved the courgette dish.

NOPI is difficult restaurant to review You want to give a lot of stars but for me it was ok not stellar. The food is rustic, some of the starters such as the beetroot salad were bland. We enjoyed the eggplant dish, the pork dish and the orange based desert. The service is energetic and our server had an excellent knowledge of the menu and wine list. The noise levels are high and this is probably down to people having a good time.

Recommend but with some reservations. Better to try to go on off-peak times. Our Friday lunch was quite rushed because the table was promised for another booking. Would have been nice if we were told before sitting down of the time consideration. Twenty mins. past sitting we were enjoying conversation (with a cocktail and a snack already ordered) when hostess informed us that "our server" was worried that we had not ordered full meal. Given a good portion of menu items are served cold and already prepared the nudge to order felt unnecessary and rushed the meal. If a full meal should be order within in 10-15 min. of sitting that should be clarified when guest is seated.
