We had a lovely night, overall the food was spectacular but the ribs where well overdone although we still enjoyed them. I give it 9 out of 10, better ribs would give it 10.

Went to Soul cafe for a pre cinema meal, wow the food was amazing, we had a minor issue withe the starters not arriving but this was immediately rectified by the manager to our satisfaction (we understand mistakes can happen), Olivier was very friendly and the place had a great atmosphere, the food was well presented and full of flavour. I would recommend a visit to Soul we will definitely be going again, it's a lovely place to have in Kings Lynn.

Great place to eat in Kings Lynn. The food is very well presented and tastes amazing. The staff are very welcoming and friendly. Compliments to the chef Mark and John for his bar service. Olivier was our server and looked after us very well. Would definitely recommend and come again.

Wonderful vegan options, great music and ambiance. Olivier who owns the place suggested the gumbo which was delicious! I highly recommend to any food lover. They even do dance nights, well worth a visit.
