We had breakfast and it was delicious. The waiting staff happily dealt with our special requests and make the whole event very enjoyable.
The ladies toilets are fabulous!
Thoroughly delicious food. Friendly and efficient staff. Nice venue, a real buzz about the place, clean and well presented.
Food is very creative, interesting and excellent. Maitre d' was excellent. He was very helpful with his suggestions and made certain that service was outstanding but not obtrusive. I highly recommend this restaurant.
Tasty and orderly, good attitudes, lovely experience!
It is too expensive for what they deliver. For a noted vegetable-enthusiast cookbook author and owner, there was a dearth of salads and vegetable sides. We had 4 of what they call small plates--the chick pea butternut squash salad (that did not have much squash at all), the green bean salad, salmon and 1/2 chicken (clightly undercooked). It was adequate but underwhelming. We had hoped for more.
Delicious imaginative food - Ottolengji at his best
We found the dishes tasty, but very expensive for what you get. We had 6 dishes (recommended) for 2 people, and tap water and our bill was £85.00.
Following a visit to Rovi, which I loved, I was keen to try NOPI. Unfortunately the experience was a little underwhelming. The tone was set by the sourly woman at the front desk who couldn't be bothered to look up or greet us as we came in. Despite having booked in advance and there being lots of tables free at the time, the waitress (on instruction from the lady at the front) tried to place us on a table in the very corner of the restaurant - not the nicest spot really. Perhaps we didn't look like the right kind of customers?!
Thankfully another waitress let us move table, and the lady who was serving us was lovely and friendly. We ordered a selection of sharing plates, and while some dishes were winners, others were left unfinished. The aubergine dip with the bread plate was delicious. I loved the sea bream dish, although unfortunately my sister didn't enjoy it (and vice versa for the chicken dish). The cauliflower fritters were tasty but overpowering and we couldn't eat more than one each. The roasted aubergine was... Ok.
Overall it was a disappointing experience for us. Perhaps we didn't order the right dishes and perhaps the lady at the front set things up in the wrong way for us. I'd definitely go back to Rovi but don't think I'll be returning to NOPI.
The female toilet design requires re-design. Horrible experience!
Just wonderful, we will come back 4 sure . Thanks! Already bought all books and we really enjoy to cook your recepes
Really poor after expecting much better. The complimentary nibbles was a sliced carrot with 5 slices in vinegar between 3 people. We were told the chicken was cooked twice. This was true because it was the smallest half chicken we have ever seen. The wine was way way overpriced to the extent it was silly. The restaurant is like a garage inside. We could have eaten far better at Callucios and it would have been half the price!
Exquisite food and knowledgeable service. Wonderful flavour combinations. A real pleasure. We will return for sure.
The lunch was magnificent, every morsel. The service was superb. Thanks.
Unique. We asked server to decide appetizers, no mains, that were favourites at the restaurant. So many flavours and combinations... every dish a surprise! Recommend.
Disappointed to find the food ordinary, using dips to compensate for lack of flavours. Squid tough (overcooked) pork belly cold. Deserts however were good. In general, not good enough for the price, and a long way from the excellent recipes we are familiar with. Take away the name and the decor... and you've got a very ordinary restaurant.
My friend and I came down from Derby and NOPI was the restaurant we wanted to try... we had a memorable meal and can’t wait to come back and try other dishes on the menu
Birthday lunch with partner.
Flavours were great but portions just a little meagre.
We went for my mother in laws 70th- it was lovely. Service was a bit pretentious
Good food and service, one of the dishes was disappointing but overall a good experience.
On this showing the menu just gets better. Great produce combined to give sublime flavours and textures.
We loved our dining experience. It's my wife's birthday and it's her favorite chef's restaurant. We are very grateful for the experience from the small bites to main to dessert!
Great service. Delicious interesting food. Even had a lactose free menu.
Only dish I wouldn’t try again was the tomato and tuna. Otherwise everything was excellent
The black rice porridge was incredible. Lovely restaurant and great service.
The vegetables are tasteless and not special, the aubergine, the tomatoes and comcumbre enz not enough flavour. Disapointing.
The duck was good, but everything to expensive for what you get.
Pre theatre dinner was excellent and served speedily which was perfect to as we were a little late. All the staff were extremely friendly. I guess my only slight criticism is that wine by the glass is only sold in 125ml measures.....
Unfortunately I won’t be recommending. Flavours were very bland - maybe it was a bad night? Not worth the hype.
Nope was a pure delight! It was recommended by a friend, at it did not disappoint. From the moment we walked in, the ambiance, smell and vibe of the restaurant was fantastic. The wait staff was attentive and friendly. The food was a delight! Highly recommend it.
I am a food lover and try to make the dining, culinary, food and drink experience a part of my travels. This was my first trip to London and in my research for reservations, I had happened upon Ottolenghi originally, but my former boss and good friend highly recommended Nopi. What a savory delight and fantastic meal for our last night in London and pre-Book of Mormon. Excellent service as well.
The room, service and food were all excellent! This was our first time to visit an Ottolenghi restaurant. We would definitely come again!
One of the best foos you can eat in London bar none.
It was all amazing. The food, the details of the interior. The value.
Oh dear. So looking forward to our meal (we have the cookbooks) but a complete disappointment. Poor service, poor atmosphere, expensive for what it was and, most damagingly, the food was sub-standard. Indifferently cooked, badly served and, at best, lukewarm if not actually cold. Mr Ottolenghi needs to pay a 'secret diner' visit or get a trusted friend to do so. I do not believe that he would wish his name and reputation to be associated with this fiasco.
Everything was outstanding from the drinks to the food to the ambiance, but the service at the bar outshone them all!
Great atmosphere. Stunning food, great service. Went for lunch on a Saturday at peak time. Service was swift and helpful. We outstayed our welcome and were politely moved on.
My family and I had a very enjoyable experience at Nopi. Notable was the seared squid and milk and cookies for dessert.
Overall very lovely! The staff is very accommodating and welcoming. The space is very lively, sometimes a little loud, but everything else was very positive
Lovely meal, great service we enjoyed it very much
Lovely meal, attentive and friendly service, very enjoyable.
Excellent food served in a great atmosphere. We will definitely be back for another serving!
Wonderful in every way! Amazing flavours and wonderful food combinations . Love the relaxed atmosphere with a little buzz in the air of people having a good time .highly recommend.
