As “a pasta pit-stop”, Stevie Parle’s “buzzy and canteen-like” Soho yearling (“well-located” in Kingly Court) wins a fair amount of praise as a “good-value-for-money” option around shopping or before a movie. On the downside, some who were “hoping for big things” given Parle’s reputation felt it fell short – in particular, “amateurish” service can take the gloss off the experience.

Summary

The latest venture from chef/restaurateur Stevie Parle (Dock Kitchen, Rotorino, Craft, Palatino) – a freshly made pasta spot, on the former site of Alan Yau’s Cha Cha Moon in Soho’s Kingly Court, to open in autumn 2017.

For 30 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
