Some restaurants make you feel like you’ve been transported somewhere else. Some make you feel like you never want to leave London. And Imad’s Syrian Kitchen is one of those rare restaurants that makes us feel both at once. With its concise menu of small and large plates (all under £15), this warm and inviting spot, located on the top floor of Carnaby Street’s Kingly Court, is serving up some really excellent Syrian dishes. Namely, some of the best baba ghanouj we’ve eaten at a restaurant, a grilled okra dish that pushed okra up in our own personal vegetable ranking system, and a tender and perfectly spiced lamb shoulder which would, shockingly, get us back to Oxford Circus in a heartbeat.

Duck & Waffle Local
Duck and Waffle’s second location doesn’t have spectacular views, nor is it open 24 hours, but it’s a solid low risk option in Piccadilly.
We love Two Floors for being a no-nonsense bar in Soho, and there's a tiki bar in the basement as a bonus. Also excellent for outdoor drinks.
Humble Chicken is an all-action yakitori bar in Soho where you’ll pair perfect skewers with ice-cold beer.
