Having been a fan of Yotam Ottolenghi's through his cookbooks and TV programs, a visit to one of his establishments was high on the agenda on my recent visit to London. As a lifelong vegetarian, his elevation of the glories of cooking with vegetables, dairy and grains is a godsend to us who still struggle finding more than one or... More

It was great to finish off my last night in London with a meal at NOPI. The friend I hadn't seen for 30 years and I managed to get a seat at the communal table by the kitchen. Service was patchy and slow (but maybe it is unfair to compare it with Melbourne). I forgot all of this though by... More

I've been to dinner at Ottolenghi and I have to admit, this was probably even better! There was solid service, food, atmosphere, and the entire experience was really memorable. Its not cheap, but few good things rarely are.

One of our group reserved a spot at the communal table in front of the kitchen. We enjoyed watching the sous chefs scurry around preparing dishes. They even joked and chatted with us occasionally. We ordered many dishes, sharing among our group of seven. Outstanding was the lemon sole with burnt butter, the roasted butternut squash, the courgette fritters, and... More

Poor service. Decent food (I don't see the greatness that I have read in other comments) and really overpriced. On the other hand, place is beautiful and with a good atmosphere.

I am a great fan of Ottolenghi's books and I was keen to try the restaurant. We entered without a booking and the restaurant was taken aback but quickly got us a place on the communal table. The salads laid out upstairs looked picture perfect ! The burrata salad had coriander seeds as a topping very unusual and interesting. My... More

Loved Nopi. The entire meal was excellent as was the service. I let the server know at the beginning of the meal that I was gluten-free. They brought a special menu, all with gluten-free selections, as well as a lovely baby vegetable board in lieu of bread. They were very accommodating throughout. We had a selection of fish and veg...

First visit to NOPI. Simple decor apart from the loos which are a mirror fest. Waiting staff attentive and well-informed. We shared dishes which were all delicious with a range of flavours and textures. As one expects from Yotam and team, innovative ideas and combinations. the cheesecake with hazelnuts was scrumptious. Will it be in the next cookery book? Thank... More

Simply put, Nopi does great food. The space and scene are fine - I don't mind it being a bit crowded, and I like the kinda trendy, upbeat yet still casual vibe - but your destination is really the meal itself. Ottolenghi does amazing vegetables, and you find yourself marveling over how simply yet extraordinarily his carrots, eggplant, artichokes and... More

The food at Nopi is a sort of an upgraded Mid-Eastern food, with vegetables like the aubergine, zucchini and peppers are reigning supreme. Combinations are smart and elegant and some of the dishes do hold a delightful surprise in them. However, the food is still too oily (to be honest, it is a very good olive oil) and a bit... More
