Our meal was absolutely incredible. I had huge expectations, which were easily surpassed. The menu was bursting with creativity and flavour; everything was not only ingenious, but delicious. The thoughtfulness was inspiring. The experience was so clever and cultural that it was almost beyond a mere meal, and became a synesthetic feast for all senses. I simply cannot wait to go back and try more of the food (the cocktails were all blissfulyl as original and delicious as the food btw); salivating at the prospect.

We went for a birthday meal. The service was fabulous and the food was fabulous. Definitely a great place for people who are adventurous eaters - the menu is creative and unusual. Their Espresso Martini was superb!

This place is AWESOME. The food is creative without being stuffy or just damn delicious. We sat at the bar while we waited for our table. We ended up striking a conversation with Nick (the Baron of Booze) and decided to give up our table to stay at the bar bc of how awesome the conversation (and the drinks) were.

Could not recommend this restaurant any more fully.

Brilliant flavours from both the food and the drink, with lovely staff and a great selection of music. Truly an innovative twist on Tapas. I would highly recommend this for anyone in search of interesting flavour, who has a refined palette.

Went to this restaurant on Saturday with a mate, the food is absolutely outstanding.
Both of us being chefs we are pretty picky, but the whole experience was great.
Will definitely be back again.

Popped in for pre-theatre.

Food was outstanding. Really creative combinations, and very tasty. I think we ordered 90% of the menu as it sounded so interesting we wanted to try it all!

Service was informative, though little inattentive at times as it wasn’t particularly busy early in the evening.

I’d highly recommend, and can’t wait to return!

This has been the most creative cuisine that I have had in a long time. The menu is both baffling and brilliant, your logical brain tells you the combination of food can’t work, your taste buds tell you otherwise, while you find new sensors-delights! You simply must try with friends utterly brilliant.

My mates and I ordered the menu. All of it. Every item. And almost every item was a winner. We even tried the super spicy sauce, and got a second order of the fried chicken! You also con't beat the value of the house wine - which is both better and cheaper than it deserves to be!

This place fit the bill for a 4 friends catch-up. Despite the slightly aggressive name, FlaBa is actually a cosy, welcoming joint in central Soho. From the warm-welcoming, jovial, bearish Saffa maitre d, to the, as you would expect, magical mixologists at the bar, to our lovely waitress, this place delivered: leisurely drinks at the bar, waiting for all to arrive, great cocktails, beer & wine; unrushed we moved to our table, the vibe was great, we could all hear each other (!) but not other tables, perfect; menu and specials a feast for the eyes, slightly confusing ‘small’, ‘tiny’, ‘larger’ portion metrics and tapas style as-it-comes delivery, but this worked well for a convivial meeting among sharing, chatty friends passing them round. Flavour-flav on the palate (who knows the taste of frankincense?!) and a University Challenge for the taste buds!
70£ each inc drink for a home from home, seated and served, and we went deep on cocktails and food, I’ll be back!
NB After booking, I read the opening press reviews and had second thoughts. They were sniffy and snippy. Luckily I had third thoughts! Food critics, even DTE Grace Dent, do their job: which is to get read and market themselves for the next job? But few of us socialise and eat with our friends in the way food crits do when in 'review mode'. FlaBa was the perfect accompaniment to our evening, a fifth friend at the table, responsive but not intrusive. May it prosper!
