    Excellent chips to accompany my fish, will pick a better cocktail next time. Recommend to anyone seeking a relaxed place to eat after shopping or on a first date 👍

    The front area is better for conversation mode. Back area for hustle and bustle. The truffled chicken liver starter is orgasmic and the Thai curry is always a safe bet. The Chilean Merlot is gorgeous!

    The best brunch in Soho. The staff are so lovely and it's very reasonable. You can also do a bit of twink and bear spotting. On Sundays, yummy mummies take over the place! 🙈

    The new dessert sticky toffee brûlée is absurdly delicious, but a huge portion! Share with a friend when you go, I was on my pen today and couldn't finish it...

    "What time do you close? "Christmas?" Great place for a meal after a night out, or early morning hangover cure. A regular spot after a great night out. Highly recommended.

    Seafood Jambalaya was fantastic. Also make sure you ask for the cocktail list - there are almost always specials.

    Open 24 hours and also fantastic food and service to boot. Come here almost every week after a night out in Soho. Just as tasty sober! A must.

    If you can, grab a seat outside and watch the world go by. There's nowhere else in Soho gives you the combination of great people watching & friendly service!

    I love everything about this small chain of restaurants. Great food, brilliant staff, gorgeous clientele. The cafe up the road is good for late night eats too.

    Super friendly staff. Even if it looks crowded, tables turn quickly. Go in and belly up to the bar. This American felt very much at home.

    Awesome scallops as a hot starter and delicious duck of two kind as a main course! The staff is very friendly and smiley ;-)

    You can't go wrong! Try Sea Bass, Balans Burger or Thai Red Curry. Go for Pornstar martinis. Waiting staff are quick & entertaining.

    Recently renovated to match the more fashionable restaurants nearby. But the service remains spotty, missed orders, spilt drinks, sold up cocktails, and a food menu without a common thread.

    There's a good mix of American and British breakfast food for anyone longing for a hearty breakfast with American-style pancakes.

    Kir Royale has to be my favourite cocktail with a nice Steak and hand-cut chips...mmmmm good food, nice staff, a little on the pricey side, but nice comfortable and enjoyable evening Read more

    A few upgrades but it is still the same. That ambience of being in a Habitat inspired showroom is still there. The gnocchi and halloumi are decent vegetarian options.

    A good place to eat if you need to eat late. Think of it as an elaborate bistro with cocktails and house music.

    Best Sunday roast in London, great cocktails, fab atmosphere and open almost all hours! What's not to like?

    All time classic. The place to go for brunch in Soho if you are a big group without a reservation.

    They will, on request, do a mean Bloody Mary with Gin & Cucumber! Ask very politely and enjoy!

    The burger is spot on, the falafel is quite tasty, and the linguini with seafood is quite good

    Lovely food and great service, but ask for your bill to come without the 10% service charge, it is optional. I refuse to pay extra for service, so just knock it off.

    Half nightclub half restaurant. Trendy, but complicated. Do NOT get the calamari. But do get the duck spring roles.

    £12 for pre cooked and heated up venison sausages and mash!! I gave this place 3 chances and it failed 3 tines! Definitely my last time here better having a kebab from the corner

    Food seems to have gone downhill a little lately. The cob salad is essentially a bowl of lettuce. The rib eye steak is probably your best bet. Skip desert.
