But where does SOOD come from?

In 2016, amidst the vibrant streets of Broadway Market in the heart of East London, Sood was born. Initially known as Sood Family, we made our entrance by offering delicious panzerotti and sandwiches filled with authentic Italian delicacies such as parmigiana and octopus ragù. As our love for cooking grew, we expanded our activities, organizing supper clubs, street food events, and catering services. Our passion led us to the Old Spitalfields Market, one of London’s oldest and most renowned markets, where we had the honor of participating in Nuno Mendes’ project, The Kitchens, alongside the celebrated Portuguese chef.

Thanks to our unique concept, centered around the freshness of homemade pasta, we have become a true landmark for Londoners. Our reputation has reached the pages of renowned magazines like BBC Good Food, Hackney Gazette, and others, solidifying our commitment to authentic Italian cuisine.



A: What are we doing tonight? Shall we go to Sood? B: Interesting! What is it? A: I saw photos of fashion victims and beautiful dishes and wines on Instagram, let's go! B: Ok, why not!



As we recommended to the two of them, we suggest you enhance your Sood experience by choosing a good accompanying wine. We offer a careful selection of natural, biodynamic, and conventional wines with minimal intervention on the grapes. Our wine list consists of meticulously chosen wineries that prioritize the quality of the final product. Let our staff guide you in selecting the wine that satisfies your every desire!


At SOOD, we love sharing, always and without hesitation! In addition to delicious main dishes, we offer a selection of contemporary tapas (our sharing plates) that can be enjoyed centrally among 2 or 3 people. Let yourself be captivated by the blend of cultures in our cosmopolitan cuisine!


The last drink

Even today was quite something, and it's time to go back home! But not before one final toast (you know, they're never enough)! Enjoy a selection of craft bitters and spirits and conclude your evening in style!
