“I just don't get it”
Reviewed February 27, 2013

Not bad food, not bad value - just bog standard lasagne and pizza. Perhaps we went on the wrong night, perhaps we ordered the wrong thing but apart from a pretty lively atmosphere I don't see what the fuss is about. Soho Joe is fine if you fancy an informal, pretty simply bite to eat - but then, so many places in Soho are.

Considering what's on offer in that area, I don't quite understand it's incredibly high rating.

“Weird service good food”
Reviewed February 25, 2013 via mobile

I was really looking forward to going here. The other trip advisor reviews looked good but when we went we were not impressed. We walked in and there really wasn't much organization you don't know if you should take your own seat or stand there and wait to be seated. You are seated then go up to the counter to order. When ordering I was told it was cash only and you have to pay up-front with a similar attitude you get from a government worker at the DMV. I just did not feel very comfortable. I am OK if they have policies and certain procedures but explain them better and just be nicer. I can't say if all the staff is like that but the few I dealt with were. London is very big and has a lot of good restaurants I will probably not go back.

“Fantastic Service and Great Food”
Reviewed February 24, 2013

We went for a pre-show meal and found all of the staff very friendly and very attentive. The food was fresh and the Pizza's huge (all £9). Burgers looked good too. Wine excellent value. Free shot as well!!

Highly recommend this busy joint. Will be going back when next in the West End.
