We decided to check it out one evening for a dinner, we were hungry, but even so, food didn't taste so good. Seems like it is all prepared in advance and just heated to be served. Yes portions are big, but far from delicious, just...OK.More

My sister booked a table here for my hen do. There was 9 of us total. You could have rolled me home after my dinner. It was amazing!! Thoroughly recommend the seafood gumbo.....insanely delicious. The homemade potato chips were actually crisps so don't confuse them....Everyone ordered what they thought was British chips but crisps came. No matter, we were stuffed anyway probably wouldn't of had room for them!! Service was brilliant they offer gluten free options within the menu and veggie/vegan options too ridiculous price paid for what we got. Would defo go back, really relaxed vibe and right up my street (as the bride that was essential!) Thank you soul food!!!More

We enjoyed our time at Soul Food but should have booked a table! We had the Caribbean curry and really enjoyed it. The service was very good and restaurant authentic with nice atmosphere. There was no room upstairs so we sat downstairs on a large...table shared with others. This wasn't a preferred option and it didn't feel as relaxed but this didn't effect the food. I would recommend this restaurant but would book in advance to try and reserve a table for 2.More

This place has a great menu full of tasty street food inspired choices. It’s well priced and has a great atmosphere inside. Down a side street and a great spot to stop for lunch while out exploring.

Stumbled across this place as it was around the corner from our apartment in the Jewish district. Small but intimate little place will a nice quirky presented menu. Food was lovely and freshly prepared and such good value for the price we paid. Jerk chicken...nice and homemade sweet potato crisps lush! Definitely takes you back to the Caribbean. Lovely find thank you :-)More

We went for a dinner on a Saturday night. I had a reservation for two. When we entered I saw that despite of the fact that the place has max capacity of 30 people approx and they have to come to the bar to order...the waiters are swimming in chaos. I worked in the catering industry so I could tell that they are not professionals. I went down to give them our order and to my surprise the lady in the bar simply gave the drinks to me asking me to take it up. So basically I was being my own waiter that night. Than I saw that they charge you 5% as a service fee on the bill by default. So basically I had to pay to be my own waiter. The food was delicious but hence the place is so small we could not hear a word because it was so crowded with 4 tables around us. as soon as we finished and payed we left. So despite food is good I don’t think I will go again.More

We tried the pulled pork sandwich, breaded spicy chicken with rice & beans and coleslaw. It's as close to cajun as you will get this side of the Atlantic! Don't miss the fired banana with mango sauce! Simply amazing.
