Great burgers, coleslaw, wine and fries. We had a nice meal at a reasonable price in a bustling and lively environment. We will be back at some point. Thank you.

Big fan of Bodeans and this time sampled the combo platter rather than the SOHO special and wasnt disappointed. Staff are very attentive without being annoying and the food was really good and not as expensive as other places I have been recently in London....More

If you like BBQ ribs, steak, and chicken then you'll probably love Bodean's food. Very content with the portion sizes too. Great meal!

I have been living in London now for 2.5 years and this is the best American style BBQ hands down in the city. The chicken wings, burnt ends and the beef rib are my favourites that I can get enough of!!

Bodeans was an excellent find given the quality of food! The chicken, pork and beef was all incredible. Would definitely go back
