All the food at Ottolenghi is made in their kitchens, right below the shops. The Ottolenghi philosophy requires that everything is hand crafted with extreme care and attention, from basic raw ingredients. The croissants, for example, are made in the traditional French way over three days, using French flour and butter. The vegetables are delivered early in the morning from the market to be freshly prepared for the day. This branch has a dining area where you can enjoy their fantastic food.

One of my favourite places ever. Ottolenghi has fresh, healthy food and it's super creative to boot. It's good service even if you have to wait to be seated, and you likely will.

I've been for breakfast, lunch and dinner, and I've enjoyed everything...more

I came here for a spot of quick lunch with a friend on a Wednesday. The window displays were amazing, with an array of oversized sugary goodies and chocolates.

The place was rammed and I was worried we wouldn't get a seat.

Definitely grab reservations for this place! I'm a big fan.more
