The area
Address
Neighbourhood: Soho
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 most strategic place to set off on a tour of the world's most celebrated department stores. In the southern part of the neighbourhood lies Chinatown, with its multitude of delicious and affordable restaurants. Closer to the Thames, Chinatown's narrow and teeming lantern-lit lanes spill onto the expansive hub of glitzy Leicester Square.

I have been a fan of Paul A Young chocolates for a number of years now, but only got the opportunity to visit his Islington shop recently & I'm glad I did. His chocolate creations are just amazing & to be able to buy them fresh from the counter makes it even more special for me. I particularly enjoyed the seasonal stroopwafel & darjeeling tea & lavendar biscuit chocolates that I chose for my collection!
I thoroughly recommend trying his chocolates if you haven't already!!

Best Before date on the product I received is less than a week, even though I asked for delay until Christmas Day. Terrible service and staff have completely ignored all of my emails.

Visited on a recent trip to London staff extremely helpful and have great understanding of all things chocolate able to talk us through the different types of chocolate they have time to spend with customers giving them full attention until they have chosen products for purchase. Staff are also very friendly enjoying conversations with all customers

I went to the shop after seeing the very affable Paul A Young on the TV, I was intrigued and I fancied splashing out on some artisan chocolate, something different from the usual stuff I have on a daily basis.
Unfortunately I wish I hadn't bothered, I've never encountered such rude staff, I was gobsmacked. I wish I'd said something at the time but it took a while to sink in. When spending that amount of money on tiny portions of chocolate I like to ask questions about what it is I'm about to buy but the response was surly, disinterested, impatient and downright offensive. You'd expect the staff to have a deep knowledge and love for all things chocolate but I got the impression they couldn't care less and just wanted all the pesky customers out so they could carry on with their little group chat which I so rudely interrupted.
I'm sure the chocolate is great, I did buy some but I'm not in the mood to eat it right now as I still have a bad taste in my mouth from the little Basil Fawlty that served me. It's amazing how much something like this can ruin your day.

The chocolates are fine. The displays are lovely. The staff... that’s another story.
They had awful attitude. No enthusiasm to help. Miserable. Unwelcoming and wanting you out of the door ASAP.

You’d think the day before valentines , one of their busiest of the year, they would embrace it and welcome it and act out joyous and helpful. Alas, the exact opposite.
Anyway, back to Godivas or Montezumas.

Expensive but the chocolates are definitely worth it. The salted caramels chocolates are award winning and you can taste why.

They also had a lot of more unusual flavours which were really nice.

This guy knows what he is doing with chocolate. My wife and I were on a vacation to London and made sure that one day we made it by his Soho store for a couple of his great brownies. We were repeat customers on this trip, and we will be back the next time too.

Stunning window display graces this cool shop ! All the handmade chocolates are arranged in a circular table so you can mix and match to make up various bags or boxes as gifts! Right in the middle of soho area and near to carnaby street area ! Some very interesting new flavours and some older traditional flavours so will appeal to all tastes! More durable prepacked boxes and bars available in all chocolate percentages and wise mix of flavours!

Staff very helpful and knowledgable ! Enjoy!

My daughters and I visited here in August having read great things about this fabulous chocolate creator online. Well, it wasn’t anything like I expected. We paid £26 for 1 brownie (£3.95), a hot chocolate (5.95) and 9 chocolates. Sample before you buy!
The brownie was nothing special, same as I’ve tasted in restaurants, the hot chocolate was literally like drinking undiluted melted chocolate and it had an oily film to it. The chocolates were average, unusual flavours like marmite (no thanks), but not a brilliant choice especially considering if you have a nut allergy and have to omit choosing these to start with!
They had chocolate buttons which in all honestly tasted very similar to Cadbury’s. To be honest it was a bit of a swizz! Like one other reviewer I did feel like the shop assistant thought that you were there to buy half the shop! Little bit of hard sell going on, but I’m glad we only got a sample (one of each chocolate). They tasted the same as Fortnum and Masons chocolates and they have a much larger choice! Won’t be returning!

The moment you enter this tiny space the seductive scent of chocolate wraps around you.
Enjoy traditional flavors or their ever changing specials like harissa-tahini.
Truffles small enough to pop in your mouth carry flavor that belies their perfect size.
