With rustic beach shack style and a packed menu of Caribbean flavours, The Rum Shack Carnaby feels like a tropical little escape right in the heart of Soho. As well as jerk chicken specialities, there is a huge cocktail menu that makes use of the great selection of imported rums.

The Rum Kitchen menu pulls together all the Caribbean favourites, with plenty of colour and spice. Nibble on jerk wings, island-spiced fried squid and sweetcorn fritters, before moving on to signature jerk chicken served with additions like gravy, sweet potato mash and pineapple. There are towering burgers, and larger plates with mouthwatering flavours like red snapper, West Indian veg curry, and shredded salads with exotic fruits.

A massive selection of imported rums are served from the bar at The Rum Kitchen in Soho, which go into the celebrated cocktail list filled with signature creations. There are also beers from Jamaica and Barbados, and plenty of soft drinks too.

Also pumping out a brilliant reggae soundtrack, The Rum Kitchen Carnaby is a popular Caribbean restaurant in London that is 6 minutes' walk from Oxford Circus Tube Station.

    Had my birthday dinner here and I have to say the Rum Kitchen just became one of my fav places in London (really need to try the Notting hill and Brixton branches asap). Food is GREAT, cocktails are amazing, and even though it’s crazy busy we didn’t struggle for service at all. Our waiter was always available and there was still lots of people around to call if something was needed. Orders were getting to the table in perfect timing when we actually were expecting a longer waiting time so That’s great. To be honest the DJ’s set was even better than some clubs in central London and that was so surprising! The music was just amazing (even if probably bit too loud at 7pm), not just a boring playlist but amazing remixes of old and new and especially lots of Caribbean vibes. Couldn’t stop moving to some of the best dancehall beats while eating :) def best thing about the place!
    Loved my experience and can’t wait to get back. Def would recommend 10/10!

    It was a bit disappointing. I had high expectations. Forst it took them 25 mins to get us drinks, 30 mins for starters which was literally fried squid (5 min work) and 1 hr for the food (burgers). We were served by 3 different people and 2 of them actually cane to us to check if we’re ok because we were just staring around. All the delay and the kitech was running with 4-5 working in it. That’s very bad.

    The food was delicious. The music was fun but a little too loud (we had to shout a bit across the table to chat with one another). Great customer service despite being a super busy night.

    It was my first time here and to be honest, we all loved it! Great food, great atmosphere and great music. We'll definitely go here again!

    I couldn't help but notice the number of staff you had on shift though. This had me thinking- building and communicating rotas, tracking attendance, forecasting wage costs, preparing timesheets... it must take some considerable undertaking.

    I had a brief chat with one of your staff who (aside from being really pleasant and helpful) gave me the impression the whole rota process could be improved. The Rum Kitchen seem like a company with their finger on the button as far as technology goes.

    I run a London-based tech company and we do automated staff/rota management software. It's all cloud-based, and it builds accurate rotas automatically (in seconds) with a huge focus on live cost of labour vs forecast sales and budgets. Tracking and managing staff availability is easy, it supports clocking in/out using GPS with our mobile apps, and you can generate rounded/sanitised timesheets ready for payroll. Individual logins for staff means they can see their rota from anywhere.

    If you'd like to explore this, please get in touch - I'd love to help!

    Kind regards,

    I thoroughly enjoyed the experience except that the music got far too loud after 6:30pm which made it difficult to talk. It would have been better if the volume was pushed up a little later. Otherwise, the food and atmosphere was just great.
