They say that in London you’re never more than a hundred feet from a Hix restaurant… Okay, so they don’t really say that but there are certainly a fair few ventures around town that the chef and restaurateur has put his name to. Soho’s Hix is the one he has literally daubed his name across and any visit here comes with a sense of occasion. Located at the end of Brewer Street, Hix is a clean, white, tiled space that bears comparison to the canteen style eating that seems to be so popular in restaurants these days - although the artwork and the over stocked bar do add some individual style to it all. On our recent trip we were taking in the set menu at a time (6 o’clock) that left the space reasonably quiet but still found ourselves wedged between couples on either side of us – cue uncomfortable eavesdropping for the rest of the meal. Perhaps not all diners get the ‘Wagamama’ treatment but it certainly makes the meal harder to enjoy for those who do.

At £19.50 for two courses, the set meal at Hix is good value. Starters of Sutton Farm courgettes with ricotta and whelks in a rich, garlic sauce were polished off rapidly. Our mains of Hix fish fingers, mushy peas and chips along with Start Point Hake with stewed peppers were more hit and miss. The fish and chips were a great, hearty take on the classic that even Mr. Birdseye might have to concede eclipse his own. However, it was only when we left – having commented on how strange it was that the Hake arrived unaccompanied by, well, anything – that we realised the stewed peppers were absent. Not a great show considering the lack of ingredients that made the dish. We chose a carafe of the Coteaux de Pyriac Cuvee des Oliviers to accompany the meal, which was a worthy choice for house red.

Minus the main course mishap – these things happen – Hix still left us underwhelmed. Having heard that it’s all about the steak/meat, I’d have to agree. The set menu wouldn’t have been out of place in an East End gastro pub and despite there being value in the price, I’d step up to the steaks in the future. And perhaps the necessity of a steak knife would afford a table with some elbowroom…

We came here for a birthday meal and both ordered the set menu - available before 18:30.

The fish and chips was great but the fish dish that my girlfriend ordered was far too simple and small - we got home and checked the menu and realised it was supposed to be served with peppers. It wasn't. I think Hix is really all about the steak. The venue is nice enough but only if you like the modern restaurant experience. Tables of two lined up like a Wagamama isn't my idea of a great place to eat. The bar below is always wort a drink though - wish the restaurant was more similar to that...
