Was taken out to dinner here by friends visiting London, I must have passed it many times and not really noticed it. The food and service was excellent. Great vegetarian food too. It's so reasonably priced. The place I take people to dinner now. Try it, I'm sure you'll like it

Not disappointed after coming back a year later. The decor is the same and so appealing. The menu choice this time was Kofte for one and Kebab for my partner. The spices and flavor from the char grilling superb.

This is one our favourite places to eat and definitely the one in Soho. The service is excellent and friendly. What's not to like about this place? Food is quality and not skimpy portions for the 3 course.

We found this hidden gem by chance and upon sighting the amazing collection of colourful lamps and seeing 2 course meal deal, we were immediately drawn to the restaurant. Once inside, staff were very attentive and the food was brought to us without much wait. The food was fresh and of a high standard, plus the portion sizes were very... More

Found I had the same meal here as my last review in 2014, so here it is, as I've exactly the same thing to say :) We went for dinner at Bistro 1 in Soho and managed to polish off a couple of bottles of wine before arriving. Great food, lovely service from a terribly good looking waiter, I had... More

Having been to this restaurant once for lunch and once for dinner in the same week, I can say it represents very good value for the location and standard of food. This is not fine dining by any means but a Turkish Bistro Restaurant offering standard fare at a good price. The menu at lunch and dinner are the same... More

Went here for dinner after the Harry Potter play on Friday and had a reservation. Turns out we probably didn't need to make one because it wasn't that busy. The food was okay, but nothing extraordinary -- the bread before the meal was good. Would maybe come back.

A lovely restaurant in Soho. Very friendly prompt service, with bread and olives on the table. The food is always excellent, a modern Mediterranean menu with a new section of various burgers. It's well done, reasonably priced with efficient friendly service. I've eaten here several times now, and it's consistently good. For pudding lovers, I would recommend the stuffed apricots... More

Despite the good value thanks to the Time Out £10 deal, quality is pretty much the same of a normal tourist café at the price of a upmarket fast food. Set menus are available so perhaps you can go with that if you really want to dine there. The burger was bland as well as the chips, the bun similar... More

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.
