Nice restaurants and supermarkets. Restaurant prices do vary so check before you enter but generally the standard is good. The supermarkets, bakeries and Candy Cafe are the real gems of this street

Light District and the epicenter of the LGBT scene –
and thus the city's hottest nightlife. For shopping
enthusiasts, Soho is not only the home of London's

Leceister Square is the closest, but other stations may be easier to get to depending on where you’re coming from. Our ultimate favourite restaurant in Chinatown is Orient London. Love it!!
