Visited today with 3 friends...had a set meal with groupon with a bottle of wine per 2 people so we had a red and a white with starter and burgers both were good. Food was good quality and quantity. Restaurant was buzzing and full upstairs. It was a great location. Will definitely come again to sample more of their menu.

Setting was very nice right in the middle of Leicester Square booked the table through open table. When we arrived I tried to tell the owner we had a booking but was ignored. She showed us to a table the waitress was either fed up with her job or just plain miserable. Two of our party ordered beef which they... More

I had such dissapointing lunch. The dishes that I tried were so boring and tasteless. Me and my company did not even finish our meals, so we left and headed for another restaurant. The prices might be ok, but I would not recommend this to anyone.

Excellent location, amazing staff, beautifully decorated bistro. A special shout out for the lady from Istanbul & the guy behind the bar. They were brilliant even though I accidentally knocked the table over. Will return for a meal with friends!

I booked a pre theatre meal here for a group of friends so the pressure was on me for it to be good, and I was not disappointed- we all loved it! The restaurant was quite small but the atmosphere very nice, and the many colourful light fittings were just gorgeous! The food was outstanding, and considering we were on... More

Easy to find in Soho, this small(ish) corner restaurant has a ground floor and basement, and was busy with a nice atmosphere when we visited. Very attractive Turkish style lighting. Friendly staff were attentive. Big choice from the menu of Mediterranean style dishes - we enjoyed mixed mezze (this could be a light lunch on its own) and salmon/avocado salad,... More

Really dry beef, cold chips, cheap looking starters. The bill was wrong, one order came out late so late we all had finished, tried to give a veggie a meat burger. McDonald's would be a better choice.

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.
