The food here is really incredible - definitely worth visiting if you are in theatre land. The location is very convenient and perfect if you are going to the theatre.

Very small restaurant and very unique cuisine. You have to book weeks in advance but the Shakshukit is worth it! Five dishes for two is what you need :)

I have pondered this for a few days. I know that many reviewers are more than pleased with their experience. For me the whole 'experience' of dining out really matters. If I want a 'fast food' meal then I go to one of the chains....More

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

Yes, absolutely! The Apollo is on Shaftesbury Avenue, and The Palomar is on a side street off of this - probably less than a 2-3 minute stroll. I'd recommend it, truly.
