“Persian love rice”, the other main, was (…) pretty and colourful, and the pickled kohlrabi had a particularly nice flavour. Providing texture was a little pile of lotus root crisps, and next to it a sharp and refreshing “courgette tzatziki”…

I enjoyed the food here, though the pricing is quite high given the cost of the ingredients that are being used…

The good things were fine, the more actual cooking that was involved, the more surely the dishes defeated the kitchen. The service was charm itself…

The truth is that the first three dishes, against this background of expectation, were such a disappointment mingled with surprise that I can only technically describe them as a shock…

Night-time is the right time to try first-class Nopi (…) an undeniably glamorous restaurant offering wonderfully creative food which is interesting, affable and very delicious…

The food was good. The wonderfully fresh mackerel fillet on shards of plump coconut with the holiday haze of mint and peanut was a standout…

If you already love Yotam Ottolenghi’s cooking you will not find a better version at Nopi. (…) We loved fat seared scallops with a slick of umami-rich chilli jam alongside (shredded) green apples and pickled daikon…

Given the level of anticipation, it would be fair to say that the reception overall to their Soho débutant has been a touch muted. Not that anyone’s found much wrong with the food, just that portions are small and prices are high…

Nopi offers full service at table of small dishes, divided unpretentiously into meat, fish, veg and sweets, advising on the menu: “We recommend three savoury dishes per person.” Since they’re mostly around the £10 mark each, that’s a sizeable bill…

The best dish from the veg list was a thrilling five-spice tofu with tomato and cardamom passata and braised aubergine. There was a long hiatus before mackerel on nettle vichyssoise and apple, topped by wasabi fish roe, appeared…

Each dish we tried was delicious but the picks of the menu were probably the scallops and baby chicken. The scallops (£12) were fat and juicy, cooked to a just translucent state then served with slivers of pickled daikon and apple…

It’s just a shame that the food being served and the prices being charged for it don’t do the rest of the venture justice. Even if the prices dropped (…) the food isn’t good enough to make me recommend the place when (…) Polpetto and Bocca di Lupo are doing the sharing plates thing so much better…
