“Good cheap alternative in Soho”
Reviewed December 3, 2013

Firstly I'd like to say that there should be a 'good' option between 'average' and 'very good'. Not having this option I have opted for 'Average'. Did not choose 'Very Good' simply because, having been there many times, I have found the quality of the food (half chicken) had decreased. I feel, the quality of the food was better when the place just opened. The value is pretty good I must say. You get half a chicken with chips (they could be better - very oily) with corn for only 6 pounds. A bottle of Becks its only 3pounds, not too bad for Soho. Good value for money for sure.

“Delicious Feast”
Reviewed December 1, 2013

Fantastic food, menu so good we couldnt chose so we went for the tasting menu. Brilliant idea! So much food, very reasonably priced - but the best thing; it was DELICIOUS. My new favourite place to eat in London.

“Good times and proper eating”
Reviewed November 28, 2013

Cookhouse Joe was a fantastic joint full of feeling and good eating. The tasting menu was spot on and the chefs were happy to pimp it up according to our wishes. Brilliant! Like I said the food was awesome but what really made our day was the cozy feeling, nice interior and the awesome staff! The waitress and even the owner were more than happy to fulfill our every single wish. You could see the owner and the staff were in a rush but they still had time to joke around with our group every change they got. Awesome food, awesome people! Check it out!

“Excellent Soho experience”
Reviewed November 26, 2013

A relaxed, intimate, cozy restaurant with second to none level of service. The Tripadvisor ratings we read prior to our dinner were all well justified.

Our waiter recommended us to order their tasting menu. We had a rich selection of Middle-Eastern/Mediterranean starters (pita bread, olives, grilled halloumi cheese, coleslaw and garlic/houmous sauces, what-not). The main course was chicken heavy (plenty of chicken and some fresh salads) - precisely as we had asked for.

The whole menu was just £20. And the drinks were inexpensive, too.

Our waiter served us with impeccable fashion.

The dining experience was wonderful.

“Absolute gem ”
Reviewed November 23, 2013 via mobile

You've got to look for this place, but it is worth finding. The welcome from the staff was warm and genuine, the menu is simple and supremely well done and the bill is much less than you'd expect.

This is a fantastic place when you want to eat well, in comfortable surroundings perhaps with family of just out with friends.

A definite "I'll be back"
