Cool vibes the moment you walk in. Professional, attentive service. Our charming waitress was knowledgeable and we were pleased we followed her suggestions. Food was outstanding with great spices and seasoning. Thoroughly enjoyed our dinner and highly recommend. Good value too.

The food, service and atmosphere are excellent. Spent an anniversary evening here with my wife and the food was exceptional. The menu is choice is fairly limited but boy what is there tastes amazing. The staff were great and even had a anniversary surprise for us. Highly recommend

We came here as a treat for my birthday and had the tasting menu. We sat at the bar which gave us an opportunity to interact with the dynamic and friendly staff. The service is impeccable, informal but attentive. The dishes were beautiful, eclectic and interesting. I tried the brain but really didn't like it so they instantly brought me... More

Great food,many brilliant dishes,few disappointments.This review was prompted by the price hikes,not all of which are published on line. Prosseco is £32 in the restaurant although the website quotes £29.The Open Table booking website quotes £12 for Octo-Hummous whereas it is now £13.50.Kubaneh is quoted at £5 whereas it is now £6.This seems to indicate that punters are being taken...

Lively, fun and extraoradinary dining experience. There was great, loud celebratory, Israeli music. This is a spinoff restaurant to the main restaurant in Jerusalem, Israel! I would love to have them open a restaurant in Los Angeles! I tried a number of incredible dishes. Including the delicious Fouttouh salad, which was bursting with freshness and flavor. I also had the... More

Beautiful unusual middle eastern food. Always excellent. Please open a much bigger place! The polenta is masterful and the desserts are knock out.

Discovered this place last year and was not disappointed on this visit. We love to sit at the bar to watch the dishes being prepared. Have our next reservation already.

I was oblivious to the hype surrounding The Palomar, and ended up going with my wife as a friend of ours offered us his booking that he could no longer use. I now get what a stroke of luck that was, given the booking was on Valentines Day in the prime evening seating period. Fortunately for us (and contrary to... More

Staying in Soho

Neighbourhood Profile
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 neighborhood 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.
