The Sun & 13 Cantons is a popular pub in Soho and busy with both tourists and workers. With a distinctly Parisian influence and post-war pop culture decorations, it attracts a mixed crowd from professionals coming for their after work drinks, to good-timers out for the night. Well known for its music, it has played host to a number of DJ luminaries including Heavenly Social, the Dust Brothers and Carl Cox and there are regular DJ nights in the basement bar (available for private hire). The Sun & 13 Cantons in London is perfect place to chill out at the end of the day and you can also eat from their kitchen residency which serves excellent food at very reasonable prices. As they have cordoned off the pavement outside you will be able to enjoy al fresco ales and beers at The Sun and 13 Cantons during beautiful summer evenings and even winter days for the brave amongst you.

Was really looking forward to Sambal Shoik's Menu after all the hype via Instagram however was left very disappointed. The laksa was very lacking in flavour and depth and I had to ask for salt to help with some seasoning. Their Malaysian fried chicken however was superb, so that would be the only thing I would recommend. Visited Sun & Thirteen Cantons on 2016-06-01

Wow! What a wonderful Indian meal. Had read all the great reviews, but were really surprised with that 'home-cooked' taste that we got at this restaurant! Had wonderful crisp on the outside kebabs, light and fragrant prawn curry, very tasty aloo gobhi, and the delish methi chicken! Please open again soon! Also met the lovely chef Asma Khan whose presence 'in the kitchen ' and in the restaurant obviously made this a success- thank you! Visited Sun & Thirteen Cantons on 2016-03-10

Great food and service. Highly recommended. Taste completely different to your average Indian restaurant with their heavy sauces. I would highly recommend the restaurant to anybody. You have to book as it a small space and very popular. Visited Sun & Thirteen Cantons on 2016-03-16

So much anticipation for this meal and wow it did not let us down! Beautiful home style cooking which reminded me so much of my upbringing. Cooked with love and run by one of the most passionate, driven woman I have ever met. Cannot wait for the next venture. Delicate, happy and gorgeous, a must have experience!

Went here on Wednesday for dinner. Fabulous food, loved the puchkas - took me back to the street food in Goa! Lovely lady serving (who I imagine was owner). Would like to know where she is going next!! Visited Sun & Thirteen Cantons on 2016-03-09

Went a bit earlier than the booking time, was accommodated without any hassles. Food was lovely, Shikhampura kebabs were to die for and then gajar halwa for dessert topped it all. Also try the onion fritters. Visited Sun & Thirteen Cantons on 2015-11-18

Had a truly awful evening at this restaurant. From the outset they had somehow lost our booking despite having received a confirmation email from them. After much waiting around they did manage to fit us in, but at the cost of making us feel like unwanted intruders rather than dinner guests. We then sat for half an hour while trying to flag attention so that we could get menus. After placing our orders we had to wait an hour and a half for our starters to arrive. The starters themselves were actually good but I'm not sure if me wolfing them down was actually down to them being tasty or me being hungry from waiting around for so long! We then waited another 45 minutes for the main to arrive. The main again was really tasty but not sure it was really worth the wait and all the apologies from the waitering staff. The waitering staff seemed to be constantly rushing around as if the place was heaving but when I looked around there were only a few tables with people. Overall I think the food is great but the service is appalling. Soho is a competitive place when it comes to restaurants - if these guys want to make it they are going to have to do a lot better. Sorry.

Love the pub, great beer options, Indian food was fantastic (as always) but service in the restaurant was unbearably slow. Not really acceptable and would have left had I not known that the food would be so good.
