Good Vegetarian Options
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; 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 eat
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. Enjoy £5 cocktails during their Happy Hour, 4-7pm Mon-Fri, and bottomless brunch every Sun. Great for large groups.

The variety of food and the unique flavours are super exciting both to the palette and the eye. Don't miss the squash fritters. My mouth is watering just thinking about it all..and in the beautiful setting of Kingley Court. Perfect for a foodie-catchup!

very flavoursome food. was really annoyed when I asked the waitress if their prosecco was dry and she said she doesn’t now because she doesn’t drink .. They only have 2 in the menu . And I mentioned this to the manager on duty at that time. I hope my comment won’t put off potential customers coz it’s a simple restaurant with good food and the location is really nice ..

This one has more of a diner vibe and is very very noisy. Resorted to sitting outside to cope with noise level. Food and service ok.

The dinner dishes were ok but not amazing that I would want to go back for more. Individually each element on the plate was good but I didn't feel like it went well together as a whole. The fried halloumi was my favourite. We also had harissa nuts, cauliflower and octopus. Perhaps the lunch / brunch menu is much better!!

I've been here before and I had no complaints. However, this time round the service was really lacking which was unfortunate. We had to wait 20 minutes for our coffee to be served and the response we had from our waitress was 'oh we are very busy today' and no apology or empathy. We also tried asking 3 times for water for the table, each staff member kept forgetting. Got so fed up with trying to get staff attention that I had to get up and go get myself cutlery! Did not pay service charge this time for this reason.

Disappointing experience - very small menu and when we went (booking for 20.30) two items had sold out. The waitress seemed determined to push the ribs, fortunately for her, there wasn't a huge amount else to choose from.
Breads were excellent but the mains were average.
Upon checking the receipt, we had been double charged for the wine.

The food here is so delicious! Highly recommend getting some of the breads and mezzo dips - we went for challa pretzel bread (which I highly recommend) and the flat bread (also delicious) with pumpkin hummus and the aubergine + pistachio, both of which were incredible.

I also had the goat shawarma which was great, so much flavour and the pitta was so fluffy!!
