We had a Groupon voucher which made the already low cost even cheaper. Really great value for a central London restaurant.The welcome was warm and friendly. Food excellent especially Turkish sausage,dressing on salad and great burgers. Their complete normal menu (excluding voucher) is also very reasonable. Will be back and i recommend to all.

We have connoisseurs of wine in the world. Call me strange, I maybe reaching out to some people, But I'm a connoisseur of fried eggs. I take them very seriously. A breakfast can be ruined by fried eggs, not being cooked the right way. Bistro served me with my full English breakfast,with . the two most perfect cooked eggs. And... More

Wine was very reasonably priced as well. Ideally located for a pre theatre dinner for Oxford Road, Totenham Court Road area. Service was also excellent and friendly. Try... More

A lovely little restaurant with a good menu and friendly service. My only criticism would be the close proximity of the tables. Wen the restaurant is busy it is a little bothersome. Having said that, it is certainly OK in the afternoons.

Visited with family pre theatre. Excellent friendly service and great food. Fatsos will also appreciate the generous portion sizes. Recommend the ba office pie! Only issue was it was a very hot day and it was like an oven inside Bistro1. A particular issue for fatsos. Probably better to visit in winter.

Really attentive staff who looked after us very well, delicious lunch for us both. Pork chops were a little overdone for me but were offset but fantastic potatoes and gravy, tiramisu was awesome.

Staying in Soho

Neighborhood Profile
The go-to district for a good time in London, Soho hosts a wealth of world-class theatres and a compelling lineup of cafes, restaurants, pubs, bars, and clubs. At Soho's core is London's original Red Light District and the epicenter of the LGBT scene – and thus the city's hottest nightlife. For shopping enthusiasts, Soho is not only the home of London's greatest concentration of boutique shops, but also the most strategic place to set off on a tour of the world's most celebrated department stores. In the southern part of the neighborhood lies Chinatown, with its multitude of delicious and affordable restaurants. Closer to the Thames, Chinatown's narrow and teeming lantern-lit lanes spill onto the expansive hub of glitzy Leicester Square.
