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

Soho is full of amazing bars and restaurants and this one can be missed. The atmosphere is great but the food needs some work.

We came here for a catch up with friends and it did not disappoint. The array of garlic based shots & food is a garic lovers heaven. We had the garlic pops, potato skins, quesadilla pollo, garlic bulbs and cheese fry. All were so so tasty. The place itself is very old, but added to the atmosphere. Staff friendly and... More

We went there because this joint is supposed to be a gothic/heavy metal joint, yet the music was a pot purri of the most mainstream all around rock you can listen to any nostalgia e-radio. In order to drink the infamous (and quite interesting in matters of taste), garlic flavoured shots, you have to eat as well so keep that... More

This dark restaurant is an amazing place where I went a couple of times already. It is probably not suitable for a first date and the rest rooms aren't the cleanest I ever saw but I love garlic. They have so much stuff on the walls and ceilings which don't fit together but the mix is cool :) They offer... More

This hole in the wall bar is something else..It's kinda dark and I was unsure of it at first, but really ended up liking it! Friends that live in London took us there. As weird as it sounds, take a garlic shot! You won't be disappointed!

Came with my husband and sister and loved it. Started by choosing each other shots from the 101 shots menu and order some food to share including the baby back ribs, meatballs and a few other bits. Very impressed. The waitresses were fantastic and I don't have a single complaint to make. Have fun with the shots and prepare to... More

I've been here many times and the food and drink is awesome. The garden's a little rough around the edges but it's a cool place to have a great time

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.
