This review is taken from the 2015 edition.
Since taking the reins in early 2015, the new owners of Naked Soup have focused their energies into producing high-quality dishes. From the first spoonful of the rich yet delicate butternut squash, coconut and lentil soup it’s evident that their time has been well spent. The constant stream of customers proves this point, with regulars and passers-by filling the leather booths and takeaway queue throughout the day. The atmosphere is relaxed and shows signs of European influence; with rustic-style serving plates, quiet jazz on the stereo and a Woody Allen film showing behind the counter. Naked Soup is the ideal spot to catch up with friends over French toast at breakfast, or to people watch with a platter of toasted sourdough and hummus.
