The bar is totally different to all the bars around them. You can listen to metal and rock music and the backyard is just great! When you are there try the bloodshot it's a must!

Literally every dish has garlic in it: you can even order garlic beer and... ice cream! The potato skins are a delight (how DO they make them??!!), baked garlic bulbs just as much, ribs are brilliant and love their chilli con carne. sadly the prawna and marinated salmon from the starter section of the menu had too much oil for...

I liked this place a lot but they seem to have some issues. I can't recommend it at the moment. They can't serve half of their meals on the menu anymore and last time half of the menu was not available and they put stickers on it. They didn't have the chocolat brownie twice in a row what is very... More

Food was great - both tasty and large portions, me and my friends barely finished all that we ordered. Everything came quickly and it was really delicious. We were served by a very friendly and attentive waitress who helped us choose shots. The place is cool and the shots are awesome! After we finished with the food and drinks upstairs... More

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

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.
