Decided to spend Saturday in soho - adventure day. Passed by this place and thought why not - a quick bite at 7pm and a bday shot was necessary!!!! Got to the table, ordered bottle of wine - waitress put the screw on bottle on the table and left it. No ice bucket. Felt very cheap not to have waitress... More

I visited your soho branch in London this evening. I ordered the burger. After one bite I noticed that the meat tasted funny, the meat was grey. when the waitress came back to clear the plates away she asked me if everything was alright and I told her that the meat didn't taste right and so I couldn't eat it....

Went here with a mate of ours who recommended it for the ribs. Well let me say the ribs were delicious and falling off the bones and sauce was just a great accompaniment. The potato skin chips were great the salsa nice and spicy and there was a whole glove on garlic not bad for a bit of a kick.... More

Garlic and shots is an unusual place. We had garlic Stella. A bulb of garlic crushed into the bottom of the glass and then topped up with Stella. You're not sure whether to drink or chew. Certainly an experience. If you're not up for an unusual experience, they also do a wide range of drinks and have an extensive collection... More

Popped in after a show for snacks. Not knowing the area well we liked the look of the place. We wasn't disappointed. We ordered potato skins and nachos.... so good. Great service, great atmosphere. A perfect little place for socialising.

I visited Garlic and Shots with a friend, and was pleasantly surprised by the food and choice of shots, 101 to be exact, and a good variety. We had the potato skins, quesadilla pollo and garlic bread loaf, all were delicious and filling. The atmosphere is relaxed, and the staff very attentive. Waited next to no time for anything we...

This place is quirky, rock'n'roll and serves superb steak. Word or warning - if you don't love garlic, don't bother. However, if you're a garlic lover, there's no better place in London!! Our group had the ribs, vampire steak and burger and all were exceptional (I had the steak with garlic potato gratin - all were divine!).

We were taken here by friend who knew London. It is an absolute treasure for those that don't feel like they fit into the Cosmo London lifestyle as this is an edgy metal bar. The decor is fantastic, the atmosphere is electric and the shots are amazing. Try the bloodshot- it is delicious. Beer was averagely priced for London soho.... 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.
