Central Cheap Eats
05/07/2007 by brennfalcon
I stumbled across this place on the internet looking for a cheap place to host a small dinner party. Since that time we've been back several times and friends have also used the venue for their own gatherings. If you're after a chic, intimate venue for a quiet romantic dinner this place is probably not for you. But if you want to get together with a group of friends and have a three course dinner for less than a tenner in central London then give this place a try. The menu is not as extensive as some but with around 15 starters, 15 mains (including several of each for vegetarians) and half a dozen desserts there should be something for everyone. The cuisine is basically Mediterranean with a Middle Eastern twist. Nothing particularly fancy just good, tasty food in decent portions. They have a decent enough wine list but the house red or white is drinkable enough and a lot cheaper than you'll pay in many other restaurants in the area. My abiding memory will be the birthday dinner my wife threw for me. At the end of the dinner in came the cake accompanied by a waiter thrashing the heck out of a huge pan with a metal spoon and singing happy birthday flat at the top of his lungs - unfortunately he forgot who it was for and sailed off to another table. When my wife went and told him that it was actually for me he came and stood right behind me and did the whole thing again - it was great if somewhat deafening! Only real minus: Can get crowded at peak times and they can tend to cram them in a bit.Report this
