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.

Ottolenghi is another place where the value proposition for takeaway is probably better than eating in. I come here frequently to grab takeaway boxes where you can choose 3 salads for around £11.50, but you have to understand that their salads are not really salads, and probably best described as vegetarian dishes.

Ottolenghi is all the hype these days for making vegetables sexy. The menu is creative and a welcomed breath of fresh air especially since Brits arguably don't eat enough produce in their traditional diets.

I came here for a group dinner and loved that it was family style as I was able to sample just about every dish on the menu. My favorites of the night included the petite lamb chops,...more
