We have been here today and I must say when your met by the front of house and a waiter in a full on argument instead of serving customers it's a little off putting. We proceeded to wait for a table as the argument continued as again it could still be heard even once seated. Really ruined the atmosphere of... More

We had to walk a little longer from the beaten track to find the joint. There are some tables outside but mostly inside. The place is a little cramped but the food is good and the service really friendly. We enjoyed some burgers with sweet potato chips and all were excellent. Certainly, there was no need for another meal that... More

Amazing little burguer place in Soho! We stumbled across it by accident but what a happy accident! Food was amazing (I highly recommend the Hawaiian burguer) and the Pina colada was made to perfection too. The salt provided in the table and made with a secret recipe was one of the highlights of the night! The service was immaculate, very... More

Any time we are in London, we visit Kua'Aina for food. This place is my favourite place to eat in the entire world, it beats a place in New York (my second favourite) and everywhere else in the world I've been! This is the first time we've been and Paul wasn't there, but it was still very enjoyable! Annoyingly we... More

We found this delightful restaurant by chance and when we went in at 12.00 it was empty - by 1.30 it was packed! Great food, fun environment and all very reasonable priced for a central London eatery!

Stumbled across this place early one evening. Brilliant burger (veggie and meat) and chips. Really loved and appreciated the chilled out vibe. Service was really cheerful and a welcome antidote to London. Will return for good burgers and chilled Hawaii vibe again soon. So so much better than chain burger joints....

Staying in Soho

Neighborhood Profile
Soho
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.
