But after booking a stay at one of London hotels, you’re looking for a good meal at a reasonable price, then there are a number of good casual dining options.
There are four Aberdeen Steak House restaurants in central London, including one between Leicester Square and Piccadilly Circus, which is very handy for West End theatres and just around the corner from the Comedy Store. You will rarely find one of them empty as they have gained something of a reputation for good steaks and quick service.
Café Rouge has more than 100 locations across the UK, with many in good locations in London. They serve mainly French cuisine, as the name suggests, and the wines on offer are all from France. They also offer an all-day serving of main courses as well as lighter snacks and salads.
If you fancy something from the east, more commonly found in Dubai Hotels than their London equivalents, a number of Wagamama’s 66 UK-based restaurants are in London. Wagamama, which must be one of the easiest restaurant to text (try it!) serves pan-Asian food in the style of a modern Japanese Ramen bar. Their philosophy, as defined by the company, is “combining fresh and nutritious food in an elegant yet simple setting with helpful, friendly service and value for money.”
One of the features of Wagamama that is also adopted by another of the London restaurants chain, Belgo, is to seat customers on either side of large tables, seating as many as 20 people at a table. Belgo specialises in Belgian cooking and beer, and has locations in Covent Garden, Chalk Farm Road, Clapham and Kingsway.
