We use Koha a lot for pre and post meals. The food is reliably good and the staff are friendly and relaxed. Whilst portions may seem small - especially on the two course pre-theatre special menu - they are always good enough to make you forget that.

Good value for the area and quality. It will go up if you exploit the interesting wine menu!

Wanting a pre-theatre meal before a show at the Noel Coward theatre, we found Koha - at the back of the theatre, almost opposite the stage dpor. Convenience doesn't necessarily coincide with good food, but Koha did - excellent value for a very pleasant two-course meal, served quickly by a helpful waitress. We'll certainly go there again

Went came across this restaurant whilst in London celebrating my 40th birthday the meal was delicious and very good value for money and as it was my birthday they came out with cake and the chef and waiters and other diners sang happy birthday to me.........great find in a surprisingly quiet area of Leicester square

We visited here as it is only a few metres from Leicester Square tube station and was convenient for us leaving in a tight timeframe. It is set back down a quiet small
side street that not many people would walk along unless for a specific reason.
We arrived at about 11:40am without realising that they didn't open until 12. However, staff were happy to seat us, took a drink order and politely explained there would be a slight wait for food due to our early arrival. We had to wait about 15 minutes until our food order was taken and we were mildly concerned that we would miss our onward connections. As such we explained this to the waiter who assured us that they would be quick with our order and could also bring the starter and main course out as quick as possible (as it was a special, very well priced, lunch menu) The waiter also urged us to eat there and showed great enthusiasm for the quality of the food. As such I ordered the Spinach and Ricotta quiche followed by the Wild Boar Sausages with mash and Veal jus. Both were exquisite tasting and appetisingly presented. My wife had wild mushroom soup followed by a goats cheese linguine which again was very good. The waiter did his utmost to accommodate our necessary quick lunch and was also very personable but professional. I didn't get his name but he told us he was from Kosovo and he was very good at his job. I would happily eat here again, rather than at one of the nearby chains littered around Leicester Square, if I get opportunity. The lunch menu was also very reasonably priced and worth every penny.

This is London's theatre heartland. It's hard to believe that you can find somewhere just a few steps from Leicester Square station that feels so quiet and cosy. The service is fantastic as is the food. We had the £13.95 pre theatre menu - the chicken livers in red wine sauce with polenta was divine and the home made ravioli delicious. We decided to go for a dessert on top and were not disappointed. Mango creme brulee was yummy Now off to the theatre...
