Lovely intimate restaurant with good Mediterranean type food. The decor is beautiful and there is a downstairs with more tables and small booths. Good value pre theatre meals just round the corner for the Prince Edward Theatre. Service of main course was a it slow and the desserts were disappointing but overall a very good meal for the money and... More

Excellent fixed price menu and very fast service. You are almost harrassed to finish, but when you are going to see a show you need to know the food will be served promptly. Turkish theme but plenty of choice for everyone. Reasonably priced wine, hugely expensive Stella!! (£6) but good service and a bustling atmosphere. Highly recommended.

Stumbled upon this little Mediterranean restaurant by chance; looked busy so gave it s try. Service and friendliness of staff was great. Good was lovely and very reasonably priced. 2 courses for £12! Crispy bacon and potato starter and lamb shish kebab for main. Both beautifully cooked. Would go back!

I'd been here before and it was great so I went back but it was not so great this time. Staff were inattentive and borderline rude. One waitress didn't speak English very well which she explained and we appreciated and were patient with her but she was still inattentive and rude. The food wasn't up to scratch at all. Practically... More

Stumbled across this and we were delighted. Good choices on menu and food was served fast. Dinner for 2 for less than £30 was excellent value. We had 2 courses each and enjoyed them. The staff were efficient and helpful.

Bistro 1 is vibrant, unpretentious and great value for money right in the heart of Soho. The food is tasty and the portion sizes reasonable: with three courses for £13.90 (two for £11.90) it is hard to find fault with this eatery. Highly recommended for a pre-theatre meal or after a long day of shopping to relax in a casual... More

I am a frequent diner here because they make me feel so welcome & the food is great. It's in a prime location just behind the Palace Theatre side of Soho. I'm comfortable solo here. I bring out of town visitors here who can't believe the prices which are practically unbeatable: £8.50 for 2 course lunch, £11.90 for dinner. Limited... More

We had a very delicious two course meal prior to going to the theatre on August 5, 2014. The food was excellent and the service even better. Our waiter attended to all of the details, and was most helpful in assisting my wife in choosing a gluten free dish. The manager came over and spoke to us wanting to know... More

I had some time to kill so I decided to find a quiet place in soho to eat and write on my journal. Found this place by just walking around. The menu on the door looked good and the inside looked quite sombre so I decided to walk in. The service is great and quick. I received my starter working... More
