Have visited Taro multiple times but only ordered the spicy chicken teri don. The dish is always perfect and very filling. It does get busy after 5ish so try and book.

One of the worst """Japanese""" restaurant in London. Everything was cold and without any garnish (no busy, no pick time, they had plenty of time). Vegetarian food tasted of meat and fish!!! Horrible. Really the worst pretending-to-be Japanese ever.

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
