Where do Soho locals go?

Flat Iron

Hands down the tastiest 'cheap' steak in London. There's only one steak on the menu and it's priced at an amazing £10...the sides are great too and also very good value for money.

BAO

This restaurant serves simple, yet heavenly Taiwanese dishes. You have to try the peanut milk and the Bao, which are light steamed buns with meat fillings. But be prepared for a long queue, because this place is very very popular!

Rosa's Thai Cafe

Freshly made dishes with lots of taste - great for sharing and reasonably priced wine too.

The Crobar

Happy hour 4-9pm every day, which makes this place super cheap and cheerful for central London!

Gosh! Comics

A wealth of graphic novels from a wide variety of genres.

Choccywoccydoodah

Just off Carnaby Street, this shop is like a Charlie and the Chocolate Factory for grown up's! All of the chocolates are hand made by the team and don't just look good, they taste amazing too...

Pizza Pilgrims

As well as an intimate, homely atmosphere, the pizzas are delicious and very very affordable, starting at only £5!

Said

The most dreamy place for a late night hot chocolate...

Bone Daddies

A small but tasty menu of Japanese ramen dishes.

MASH

This American steak house serves delicious high-quality food with a Danish twist. The Art Deco interiors are really cool too!

Archer Street

I love this cocktail bar! It has a great atmosphere and is the perfect place to take a date.

Jamie's Italian

Just off Piccadilly Circus, this Jamie's Italian is set within a converted pub and has a terrace too that is lovely on a summer's evening. The fresh pastas and cocktails are very tasty!

Ping Pong

The best dim sum in London and superb strawberry puree lemonade! The set menu is fantastic too and a real bargain...

easyGym

A hidden gem gym at the top of the Plaza Shopping Centre. It's been the setting for a few famous ITV film shoots and has an excellent double gym class session on a Sunday morning!

East Street

Quick and tasty Pan Asian food just off Oxford Street.

"The Carlisle Arms, Soho is the site of London's only death caused by choking on a billiard ball. In 1893, Walter Cowle boasted that he could fit the whole ball in his mouth, but unfortunately for him, it got stuck..."
