Harden's says

The chef's behind Stokey's mega popular brunch spot The Good Egg (just check out that weekend perma-queue) bring their unique mix of Middle Eastern cooking and spicing with British ingredients to Soho's Kingly Court. The follow-up draws on the distinctive Jewish café-culture of Montreal and Tel-Aviv's vibrant street-food scene for an all-day restaurant, bakery and bar.

“Utterly magic shakshuka served with chunks of roasted sourdough…”, “stand-out salt beef bagels…”, “incredible coffee with a selection of babka sweet breads (in different flavours!)…”, “ZFC – ‘za’atar fried chicken’ – to die for!…” – these “bustling” Israeli delis in Stoke Newington and Soho’s Kingly Court create queues (especially at brunch) with their “quite exceptional and startlingly fresh Middle-Eastern-cum-north-American food. They also make a worthwhile destination at dinner, when the pace is more sedate, the natural wines are flowing and you can actually book a table”. “Casual and relaxed”, they look “gorgeous” too.

“Exceptional breakfasts and exceptionally welcoming staff” are the two most highly praised features of this Israeli deli in Stokey, which now has a Soho offshoot too. One former fan however, complained of “corners cut” of late – hopefully just a blip.

For 30 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
