I have really enjoyed my visit to this place. The staff were very friendly and hospitable. The place has a very cozy and warm feel to it, which complemented the whole experience. The food was great and delicious throughout, from the presentation all the way to the last bite. I'm definitely coming back to try out the other dishes on... More

Lovely little Hawaiian restaurant with a lovely welcome and great service. Our second visit, it's a more personal, friendly experience than a large faceless chain. Go and visit!

We strolled around Carnaby Street on a Sunday afternoon and wanted to have an early dinner. We found this tiny place and it looked cool. They had some tables outside but in the current heat they were all taken. We were seated inside on a side bench for about 15 minutes to wait for a table for 4, although there... More

Love the Belfast branch of this restaurant so we thought we'd try out this London one and get a good experience for the end of our trip. Mistake. As we arrived a couple left complaining that they had been sitting for 15 minutes without any staff coming to them (12 pm lunch time, and not busy). Our order was taken,... More

I read the reviews here and the majority are brilliant and I can see where they are coming from. I rarely go somewhere that trip advisor rates below a 3 so I had no hesitation coming here after reading about it in a best places to eat in London article in (I think it was) esquire.

Aloha Neil, Thank you for taking time to write a review. I am sorry to hear that you did not have a great experience with us. Your food should have arrived at the same time and it is very disappointing to hear that your waiter did not look after you well. We are constantly working to improve our service and... More

Super friendly staff, quick service, clean restaurant and tasty food at a good price - and in a great/useful location! We had burgers - one with bacon/halloumi/avocado and the other no bun but a good mixed salad, plus sweet potato fries. Really delicious. We only drank iced tap water - it was a hot day and they gave us pints,... More

My husband had a great burger and onion rings and a Hawaiian beer. I had a vegetarian option -- halloumi and roasted red peppers. It was delicious!!! If you're like me and don't know what halloumi is -- it's a goat's milk and sheep's milk cheese from Cyprus. They grill it like a burger -- YUM! I had sweet potato... More

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.
