Restaurant description

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.

    Cocktails were OK, quality of the food has changed and not as good as begore. The service was awful. Too many members of staff milling around and chatting to each other. When we were dining two young ladies came in as customers who appeared to be members of staff not on duty. They helped themselves to ordering from the till and when they sat down working members of staff sat with them. One member of staff actually ate and drank with them. We were not asked once if our order was OK and the attitude of some of the waiting staff was complete arrogance.

    I really enjoyed my evening post carnival. It was marred by the incident of a stolen bag from one of your overseas customers who was told to leave it at the front I. An I observed area. She lost her passport and everything. Rum Kitchen you must do better than that...

    We thoroughly enjoyed our meal here Saturday early evening. It was busy but the service was the perfect balance and our waitress was Uber bubbly. The food was great, the cocktails were to die for and the the music the DJ was playing was infectious. ( chair dancing happened !) we’ll be back and I totally recommend going there

    Food was amazing and came quickly but service was slow, had to ask the waiter to order food and drinks and drinks only came after food, almost done eating and had to call the waiter to ask where drinks were. Also asked for bill and once bill was on the table we waited 15 mins and eventually got up and walked towards the door asking anyone to please help us pay so we could go. Love Rum Kitchen, always good service, but yesterday was shocking

    Really nice food and cocktails. The server, however, whilst being attentive, completely rushed us out of the restaurant. We ate our meals in half an hour - and when we said we didn't want desert she brought over the receipt and the card machine. We hadn't even finished our drinks! We felt awkward as if she just wanted us to leave and it soured the whole experience. I'm not sure if The Rum Kitchen has any comments on this, whether they ask their staff to rush out paying customers? I don't think I would recommend this restaurant to friends on that basis. They treat you like you're in a fast food chain.
