We booked this restaurant for a pre-theatre meal and mentioned when we arrived that we needed to be finished by 7pm. The staff were quite slow to come & take our order and we had to call a waitress over and ask her to take our order. However, once we had given the order, we didn't have too long to... More

We visiting here prior to seeing a show at the west end and used Tastecard to get 50% off all food. Even though there were only a handful of tables occupied at 6pm, service was extremely slow. From taking our orders, to clearing our plates and offering desserts, we noticed other tables having the same experience. The food is decent... More

We went as part of a theatre deal and had the set lunch. It is a pleasant setting and staff all made us feel welcome. Not much atmosphere but the food was good and well worth a visit as part of a deal

I had arranged a table for dinner for a large group and in the week leading up to the event had to add more people onto the booking. Diana Mihaylova was extremely helpful and managed to accommodate all of our guests despite being fully booked and as a result had to move our booking by 30mins but she reserved us... More

My friend and I came here using a taste card. The staff were very attentive but just a little bit slow considering there weren't many people in there. My friend asked for a medium rare steak but came out rare. She didn't bother to complain as were getting a discount anyway. It was rather cold in there, couldn't warm up... More

Staying in Soho

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
