We had a lovely lunch. Food beautifully presented and staff pleasant.

Went on a Monday night so was nice but quiet. Food was served really quick had no time in between Starter and main. Can't complain due to the price two course and a glass of wine for £12 but won't hurry back.

Once again enjoyed lovely food in this restaurant. The conservatory area at the back is very pleasant.

I've been to SoHo on many occasions over the years and never been disappointed. The food is always good, and great value. On this occasion, however, we were seated at a table so close to the (regularly open) door that we were cold for the entire time we were there. There are at least 3 tables too

The restaurant was busy for a Sunday evening. We opted for the discount on the á la carte menu. The sautéed mushrooms were delicious and the beef stir fry was a great choice. Our waiter, Chris, was charming, efficient and friendly - quite a character. Service was first class. All in all - perfect.
