Blagden's, a family-run business based in Paddington Street, Marylebone, for 50 years, closed its doors this week.
Owner David Blagden said customer numbers fell by 20% when the congestion charge started and never recovered.
Transport for London said businesses had not been affected by the scheme to the extent which some had claimed.
Mr Blagden told BBC News: "The first week of the congestion charge, you could almost see tumbleweed blowing down the street."
He also said shoppers stayed away due to over-zealous parking wardens.
A spokesman for Transport for London said: "We continue to monitor a whole range of issues to do with the congestion charge and at no point have we identified the issues affecting businesses to the extent which some business have claimed."
