Just off Soho’s Carnaby Street in Kingly Court + serving food all day long, The Good Egg is a spectacular all day dining destination for a Tel Aviv-inspired breakfast, brunch, lunch or dinner (try the award-winning shakshuka!).

The menus here cater very well to both meat eaters + veggie/vegan diners alike; 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 dine 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.

Great for large groups.

Enjoyed a superb brunch at this buzzing Israeli restaurant in Kingly Court. The shakshuka and pretzel challah with whipped feta dip were some of the best we have had in London and the strawberry shrub with soda was the perfect refresher for a summer day. Service was a bit uneven on a busy Saturday morning - sometimes there was quite a large gap between courses.

The food was great and the restaurant is really tasteful. There was one vegan & gluten free option which unfortunately consisted of taking away the egg and bread but not substituting with something else - but cost the same. Please could you add some substitute options :-)

If you dont mind places with a lot of people, then this one is fine. The food was good, a bit overpriced for what we received. Food good, service very slow though. They also got the order wrong. I would give this place 3/5 stars as the food was fine but service and atmosphere put me off a bit

Awful drinks service - waitress never brought out the soft drinks we had ordered. We had to ask 3 times and then a different waitress altogether. And again at the end when we ordered tea/coffee it took 20mins to arrive.

Visited The Good Egg on a lovely weekend for brunch, and whilst the place itself was very nice the staff were dismissive and not very attentive which slightly ruined the experience. The food was lovely and as a vegetarian didn’t feel overlooked on the menu.

Overall it was a nice meal out, the starters were very good, and good value for money (we got all the "noshes") however the main meal was a disappointment. We opted to share the ZTC and a couple of sides and asked for this to arrive after our starters, however, it was brought out in the middle of our starters so we sent it back. I suspect this was then kept warm for the next 20 minutes as when it arrived the greens were cold, the chicken hard and the fries soggy. Not at all impressed for what is meant to be one of their star dishes. The cheesecake we had for dessert was nice enough, not overly sweet and a decent portion. Service was a tad haphazard, we struggled to get people's attention and after the main course incident, it was definitely a tad frosty. Regardless I think I would return, but just for drinks and nibbles.

We booked here to be close to the Palladium and it seemed to be perfect food for a hot day (33c). We loved everything that we had - burnt aubergine, zoo fries and fried chicken. Everything was really fresh and tasty and so felt that it was good value for money - including the £5 cocktails. I will definitely be back to try out the brunch menu. Its an ideal pre-theatre dinner venue as the service was very quick - but unhurried.

£5 happy hour cocktails was a great start. Food was delicious. We were asked if we needed anything or if they could clear the table quite a lot even though we clearly still had food and drinks on the table which was good and bad.
Good that they were attentive but obv we were interrupted quite a lot. Overall, a good place for drinks and food.

This was our second visit to the restaurant and despite the slow service the first time around, we decided to come back as the food was very good.
this time the food again took forever and when it finally arrived, my pita bread was rock solid and my husband's dish had a bug crawling across it. Needless to say we complained and the dishes were taken away. We were told that unfortunately it would take another ten minutes to make them again.
Good service would have been to offer us a snack or free drink to tie us over, but nothing. While the food that eventually arrived (we are talking an hour after we placed the order) was very good and we enjoyed, I would not go back given the poor service. It also didn't feel like they cared much.
When the bill came, my husband asked for his dish to be taken off, which they did, so that was at least some consolation. Unfortunately not enough for us to want to return to this place.
Shame, as the food was decent.

Some of the food was lovely, such as the startes, but everything else was not good at all. The pastrami was very dry and very old almost like it had freeze burn. THe fried chicken did not have any taste at all. The mezze for startes ( the whipped feta and the bread) was delicious. However overall the food was not good enough. I think there is a lot of potential when looking at the menu but the execution of the food is not good. The service weas great and the location and the venue is also good. I think i willl ave to try the brunch menu to see if that is better.

We had a pretty good lunch at The Good Egg, enjoying a decent selection of well-executed Israeli comfort food. Service was however disappointingly slow and slapdash. To compensate for our 45-minute wait between courses (!) one of our dishes eventually arrived with an unrequested merguez sausage slipped into it. Luckily, none of us is a veggie! Apparently, there is a prix fixe menu at lunchtime, but no-one bothered to show us this, leaving us free to order from the pricier a la carte menu. Cheeky. Overall the food is worth a return visit but next time we'll need manage our wait staff more proactively.
