    Last Friday we had lovely dinner at Bistro 1. It was little get together, almost like family reunion and my first time in 10 years in Beak St. I'm very happy that we came back there. The atmosphere was lovely and the food was great. We did enjoy it a lot. I have to say that Beak St is my favourite by far comparing to Covent Garden and James St (sadly closed ). It's hidden little gem and I can't wait to be back soon. Thank you for making our evening special.

    Was here with a small group (5) for dinner. Although busy, the staff made us feel very welcome. We were served promptly, but at no time made to feel rushed, although it was a Friday night in busy Soho. We chose from the fixed price menu, which offered a plentiful choice between something a bit special (spicy sausage or chicken) and the more traditional offerings that would hold a wider appeal, like the fried Camembert or calamari. My food was delicious, [$] incredible value for money anywhere, but particularly in this Central London location.

    I chose to have lunch here on the basis of reviews on this site. I have always wondered about the authenticity of such reviews and whether they were real. I cannot believe the previous reviews I have read of this restaurant. It was tiny, overcrowded and dreadfully noisy. But worst of all was the food. I have struggled to think of one word which would sum it up. The only word that does it justice is 'GROSS'. I write this about 6 hours after eating and the greasy taste still fills my mouth. It is a place to be avoided.

    First impression was oooh a bit orange but the service and food were superb. No refined delicate plates but what you got was really good food. Price was amazing and although we were eating early there was a quiet buzz in the place. the bathroom facilities were under par though and I would give them a miss another time.Wine prices were very good and I would go again. Not for romantic dining but as a group wanting to eat good food for not too much then it is superb.
