Sun & Thirteen Cantons

12 user reviews 4

Sun 13 & Cantons' kitchen is run by head chef, Asma Khan - one of the rising stars of London's food scene thanks to her exceptional Mughlai cuisine. Here, she's created an extraordinary menu of dishes based on family recipes stemming from the royal kitchens of India. Head down to enjoy exciting, authentic North Indian cooking like never before - dishes include Chicken Rezala, Shorshe Chingri and Venison Kofta. 

In the northern streets of Soho, you'll find ArrosQD, the swish Spanish fine dining restaurant whipping up Valencian fare using fire cooking techniques. Choose from their range of tasting menus, including some super indulgent options, or go for tapas bowls shared among the table.

Aqua Kyoto

4 user reviews 4

Specialising in omakase sushi and sashimi, alongside signature dishes including tempura and specials from the robata grill, Aqua Kyoto is one of the best Japanese restaurants in Soho. Located on nearby Regent Street, this stunning restaurant bar is a must for any occasion. 

The Windmill Soho

1 user review 5

Not your average restaurant, The Windmill Soho offers you a theatrical dining experience, with table-top dancers, burlesque performers and circus acts running rampant while you eat. As for food and drink, chow down on world-class grub and sip on imaginative cocktails.

Marsha Soho

84 user reviews 3

Situated on Carnaby Street (inside Kingly Court) and spanning two floors, Marsha is an excellent restaurant to head to if you're looking for dinner with friends or a weekend lunch. Enjoy small plates of mac and cheese, hummus and a menu almost solely dedicated to all things chicken.

Chotto Matte

6 user reviews 4

Offering colour-pop interiors and delicious plates of Nikkei cuisine, this gorgeous Soho restaurant brings the cultures of Japan and Peru together to offer one of London's most unique dining experiences. Head down for signature dishes, cocktails, bottomless brunches and DJs every weekend.

A must for wine lovers, Noble Rot Soho is a British institution. Expect old-school charm, with a menu that covers everything from onglet steak and crudites with smoked eel butter to stuffed courgette and roast apricot ice cream for afters... washed down with a few glasses of vino, of course.

For dumplings in Soho? Few are celebrated quite like Baozilnn. A casual Chinese dining spot where chopsticks are set alongside pillowy bites, beef brisket and dan dan noodles, we loved their classic approach and beers alongside. See what we thought in our review.
