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.

Love love love! What a great place to have lunch when in London. I have several of his cookbooks, so I was very excited to go to one of his restaurants. The food was delicious, the set up of all of the food and desserts inside looks meticulous and great service! Would definitely recommend and come back!!more

This restaurant is so fantastic. We booked a table so we got a table for 2, though you sometimes get sat at the big communal table. It's fine but I prefer the privacy of the individual tables as you are quite close to other people on the communal one!

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. Ottolenghi is no secret around upper street. I only wish I still lived in London so I could go more often. It's a go to spot every time I visit.

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