Shoryu does a very good bowl of ramen for less than a tenner, and you can easily get a beer and share a couple of sides for less than 20 quid. The noodles here are very good and servings are generous - it’s a big bowl of comfort that’s perfect for a solo dinner or a chilled out dinner with friends. They’ll do you a solid plate of yakitori or sashimi if you want a bigger meal, and it’s usually easy to get a table as a walk-in.

Ham Yard Bar
Hotel bars are rubbish, right? Not if they’re the Ham Yard Hotel’s bar. It’s a great Soho bar for cocktails and lounging pre or post-dinner.
Experimental Cocktail Club
ECC Chinatown is one of the best cocktail bars in central London, and it’s great for an intimate hang with a few friends. It’s close to Soho, too.
The bao are what makes this Taiwanese joint legendary, but the small plates are even better. The queues at Bao are an official Soho landmark.
