Cuisine: Indian
Price Point: Mains from £10-£20

‘Wala’ is an Indian term used to describe a merchant of the finest produce; need we say more?

In keeping with its delectable plates, the restaurant has earnt its place in Soho Courthouse hotel, a five-star establishment in Mayfair. The interior may surprise you with its informal, almost bistro feel. Mismatching purple chairs and hanging birdcages make this a bright and friendly spot.

The food menu takes the very best of Indian street food and adds that something special, as well as some unconventional ingredients. It’s not every day that you can say you’ve eaten crispy lotus root or yuzu infused stone bass! Even the classics are given star treatment, with clay ovens ensuring they pack the right punch.

The drinks menu is perhaps longer than its foodie counterpart. With a concise selection of wines, champagne and beers, emphasis is placed on the various gins, brandies and whiskies on offer. Question is, which one will whisk-y you away?

What a great place! We were welcomed and served by Ravi who fully explained the menu and even offered some advice on what to pick (accept his advice!). The food was amazing, perfectly cooked. The breads and dips that came with our food accompanied the dishes perfectly. The setting was modern clean and the toilets were impeccable. The final treat of the sitting was the gulab Jaman cheesecake! 10/10 would highly recommend!

Never knew this place was here! Really nice restaurant. Service was great and the small plates were particularly delicious. My partner is Indian so he said the main dishes weren’t as flavoursome as he would’ve liked but overall really nice food and experience.

Food was very tasty although portions were smaller than your average Indian restaurant. Staff were friendly and helpful and the restaurant was modern and well decorated.

Soho Wala was a great restaurant with delicious food and a relaxed atmosphere (Tuesday night). The plates were small and designed for sharing which allowed us to try out a lot of different dishes. I would highly recommend the Dhungar Baigen Bartha - this was delicious. Very reasonably priced and the service was excellent. Definitely try it out!

The food was delicious. Everything we ordered was tasty. Great place to share lots of dishes. The only negative was that the poppadoms were a very small portion. The restaurant was lovely and not over packed. I would return and also recommend,

The portion is much smaller than expected, but it is tasty and overall positive experience, changed my mind on how Indian food can be presented.

Food was great with a good vegetarian selection and reasonably priced. Great options for sharing between 2 people.

Service was quick. Great for a pre-show meal.

4 of us went here on Saturday. Food was good but the service wasn't very attentive. We arrived 10 mins early and is was not busy, and no one came to greet us, after standing the entrance for 10 mins, I went over to the bar at the back and someone came show us our seats. Can't complain about the food, good choices, and some different dishes too compared to normal Indian restaurants, the Poussin was particularly good so we ordered it another portion, it too them 20 mins to inform us that they had run out. It looked as though only one of the waitresses really knew whet she was doing. Not sure if I would go again.

We had a lovely time at Soho Wala. The service was impeccable and there was a lovely vibe to the place. We had the okra and lotus leaf and then poppadom chips to start. They were delish! The menu is a little hard to interpret but the waiters are more than happy to explain, they were very helpful. We would definitely return.

We had a great evening at Soho Wala!! The food was delicious and the service was very friendly, quick and attentive. Definitely recommend the Papdi chaat, Malai wali broccoli and achar wali gobi, and the Kurkure bhaji.

A more interesting menu than your standard curry house, and nicely presented dishes.
Clean and colourful decor.
Gulab jaman cheesecake was a highlight.

Right from the beginning the staff was helpful and accommodating. It was our first time eating Indian food at a restaurant but the waiter was more than happy to walk us through the different types of dishes and make recommendations. We ended up choosing one dish from each section and every dish was delicious. We will definitely be returning.
