    Breakfast is delicious, especially the shakshuka. Lunch salads are a treat, and they try to accommodate food allergies and intolerances given the middle eastern propensity for nuts in recipes.

    it's worth waiting for their near-perfect pastries, quiches, and salads. If you don't have time to cook before a dinner party, it's an excellent pick for a meal that you can pick up and bring home.

    Spend over 10 minutes salivating, being unable to make up my mind. Everything looks so good! Had the seared tuna, basmati rice and those mouthwatering aubergines. Everything was to die for.

    Great atmosphere, super amazing service & the food is so high quality. It is like tapas so best to try few dishes and enjoy the great tastes. Vanilla fiancier was like a home made cake and the best.

    Great, if slightly pricey, breakfast, amazing desserts and beautiful salads. Not so great: food lift keeps beeping, service not perfect & decoration a bit incomplete.

    We had savory takeaway (you can pick from a selection of 6 dishes and it’s priced on weight). It was really good and flavors combined well. It’s expensive though. The cakes were also excellent.

    Relatively new Ottolenghi ❤️ more spacious compared to the restaurant in Angel. Food is delicious (I had pancake with plums, yogurt and berries) - delicious 💙 service is also very good 😊

    I went for a coffee and a piece of cake. Definitely I want to get back there for. The flowerless almond orange chocolat cake is flavourful and have a really amazing texture!

    Everything is delicious! Fab take out service, 5mins walk from a park & Spitalfields City Farm, perfect picnic option.

    Excellent and fresh food from a renowned chef. Pricey for the amount of food, but it's all about quality. Recommend the seared tuna + the radicchio salad.

    It’s all as good as they say. The salmon pairs near-magically with the endive in the green bean salad. But I’m sure everything tastes magic, so go wild.

    The Pumpkin dish just rocked. The wine (SP68) we had was amazing too. However, while the server was nice, I wished they were much more attentive to us.

    Posh ambiance. You’ll need to ask for a table even if you just want to eat pastries from the front display. But you can get pastries to-go as well.

    The food for the restaurant and take away is served from the same station, so get busy during lunch time. Not the best coffee I've ever had and it is a bit pricey but the food was yum, so good overall

    Dinner here was great! You could choose between dishes from the counter or from the kitchen. All the dishes we had were exciting and came with unusual ingredients and flavours (in a good way).

    Chocolate caramel cake w. almond brittle! Besides, the eggs w. leeks & spinach or shakshuka for breakfast. The polenta & sweet corn cakes were nice, however the combination was not equally brilliant.

    Incredible food for take away. Fresh, tasty, novel cold food. Try... everything! The aubergine is great, tuna is great and there's a huge selection of cakes. Again, try them all!

    Try everything you can/want. For those who don't like a sugar-overloaded dessert: flourless chocolate rum cake (non-drinkers: flourless chocolate bundt cake's yummy too)!

    Can't fault this place. Everything I've ever tried is packed with tons of flavour, from green beans to the salmon steaks.

    This beauty is flourless, made with almonds, orange and chocolate. And it tastes heavenly.

    Small chance of a walk in for dinner if you arrive and ask nicely well before 7pm and can eat within an hour. Otherwise definitely book or you've no chance.

    Broccoli and Courgettes with truffle oil and hazel nuts were absolutely delicious with spectacular balance. Lamb and venison dishes were a real treat too.

    I was so happy when this opened up as love the vegetarian selections. Unfortunately their vegetarian takeaway lunch opinions are over £10 so counts me out except for special occasions only. Shame

    Ah, Ottolenghi. I always find my way into one of Yotam’s restaurants whilst in London. Try the tofu scramble for breakfast. Sounds odd, but it’s delish.

    Salads are very fresh and vibrant. But I have this feeling that it is more interesting then nice. It's also a bit overpriced.
