Authentic Vietnamese restaurant
If you like Vietnamese food you are going to love this restaurant! It's a medium sized restaurant which has two floors and is located near to Old Street underground station. The decor is relatively plain but the food and the service is excellent. I'd highly recommend the Vietnamese pancake and the Pho. The only downside to this restaurant is that it can get very busy and so it may be an idea to book in advance if you're going to eat at peak times. The prices of the food at this restaurant are reasonable.
Overall I'd highly recommend this restaurant!

Delicious Thai food
This restaurant serves delicious authentic Thai food. It is located close to Limehouse Docklands Light Railway (DLR) and there are plenty of buses serving this area too. The restaurant is small and the decor is quite plain but the quality of the food more than makes up for it. The service is good and the staff are polite and helpful. The price of the food is reasonable and they do have special prices for the lunchtime menu and, at the time, in the evening they had an offer for about £15 where you could eat as much as you like!
Overall I'd recommend this restaurant.

Recommended for a visit
The Imperial War Museum is housed in an impressive building that is located close to Lambeth North underground station. A day can easily be spent at this museum but I'd suggest, as entry is free, to spend a half-day here and come back to see the rest another time. The display of tanks and aircraft is impressive and the holocaust exhibition is particularly interesting but you will need to put aside maybe a couple of hours if you want to go through the exhibition thoroughly. The Imperial War Museum does have a cafe if you need a break!
Overall I'd highly recommend this museum.

Cafe Hmmmmm
The menu contains a large selection of international dishes. The service was polite enough although there was a little bit of a wait for our food. I didn't find the food to be that tasty or well cooked, but the main attraction with this place is the cost of a meal, it's very cheap!
Another attraction is that you don't have to share your table with other people so at least you can have a private conversation with your friend or partner without people overhearing what is being said.
The restaurant is very central so it's near to where all the nightlife is.

Cheap & Cheerful?
A cafe style restaurant with cheap Asian food on offer including Vietnamese. The Vietnamese soups were very good but some of the other food was disappointing. The portions served are large and the prices very reasonable.
The service was adequate but they could be a bit rude at times. This restaurant does get busy at peak times but you don't have to share a table with other people so at least you get a little privacy.
The restaurant is very central therefore near where all the nightlife is.
The food here was definitely cheap but the staff not very cheerful!

American fast food joint
This is a quality American fast food joint.
This place can get very busy and it can be hard to get a seat as the restaurant is not all that big. The quality of the food is good but there aren't that many healthy options on the menu.
I found the staff to be efficient and helpful but the food prices may be a little high.
The decor is based on that of a 1950s American burger joint.
The location is very central and therefore near several tube stations, and there are plenty of bar, clubs, cinemas and theatres nearby.
The place is good for a quick bite and chillout.

Love this place!
This is one of my favourite Chinese restaurants.
They serve large portions of good quality food at a very reasonable price. The service is efficient and friendly, and they don't try and rush you out of the restaurant once you have eaten.
This is a smallish restaurant and gets very busy at peak times; there is a maximum of 4 place settings per table. One dish I'd recommend is the Treasure Rice. There is also a complimentary Jasmine tea available with your meal if you ask for it.
The restaurant is very close to Waterloo station and Southwark underground station.

Good value food
Recommended if you want authentic Chinese food at a budget price and you're not that worried about the service.
Good for a quick eat and then out! Try the roasted duck with rice priced at only about £4 ish.
But bear in mind that the decor is shoddy and plain and the service is somewhat lacking and certainly without a smile!
It is also likely that you will have to share a table, so if you like to have private conversations and prefer them not to get overheard then this place is not for you.
There are better Chinese restaurants than this one in the locality but they will be a little more expensive, but Wong Kei maybe worth a try sometime!

Good Food
The positive aspects of this restaurant are:
- Food is delicious
- The staff are polite and efficient
- The restaurant is very central
The negatives are:
- I found the portions to be a little on the small side
- For private conversations sharing a table with loads of other people can be a pain
- You may have to queue on the street for some time at peak times before getting a table

Overall I'd recommend this restaurant if there is a group of you but if you want a something more intimate then this is not the restaurant for you.
