My wife & I came here and enjoyed a 3 course halal meal for £30 a head.

The chef Ali creative and has a passion for his menu and it shows by the flavours and ingredients he has opted for.

The roast lamb saddle was of note and the chocolate fondant was executed really well.

All in a very pleasant evening, with live jazz thrown in to add to the ambiance.

The La Sophia team provided a great night out for 20 adults. We were celebrating a birthday and the chef provided a great cake on the night too. The Halal food made the night for many of us. We were not used to having so much choice on menus. The Halal Venison was my favourite. The food was great quality and many of our party are likely to revisit in the near future. The waiters were very patient given we had such a large party. The Chef even came out at the end of the evening to wish Happy Birthday. Sousan was very helpful and responsive while I was booking the night. All in all a good night in West London!

Very decent restaurant, good food, OK service. All in all, a lovely dinner.
The basement is a bit dull though ; They'd need to work on the lighting and go for candles maybe, to make the whole atmosphere a bit more cosy and welcoming.

We had a friends surprise party here. We had exclusive use of the basement private dining area. The food even though was from the Xmas menu was a of very good quality. Tasted great and presentation was superb. Service was also very good. Mocktails were well prepared. Would definitely recommend it and visit the upstairs restaurant in the future.

Fulfilled all the group's hopes for a pre-xmas reunion with a wine tasting and food pairing by a relative who has just completed a wine course. He had researched all the BYO restaurants in London. This place has a few drinks by the glass but not a whole wine list. However, they were able to supply bottle coolers and pourers. Our dessert was a matching of sweet wine with Tarte Tartin. The Tarte Tatin was wonderful. I have to admit I was surprised that we did not receive anything before the starter. The decor is dark and cosy. Children in a birthday party downstairs were away from us and our drink. The soup and chicken with potato were what I wanted. Did not taste much of the truffle oil mentioned on the menu. However the tarte tatin was wonderful and made a lovely ending to the meal. The service was faultless. They caught our eye from the back area whenever we looked up, came over, wrapped leftovers for a takeaway, served our wine in an ice bucket as requested, changed the drinks glasses, left us having a wonderful time with goodwill all round to our companions and the restaurant staff at the end.
