This is by far the best lunchtime food place in the area, especially if you like mayonnaise which their food is drowned in. Seriously though, the sandwiches are varied and delicious, prices very reasonable and portion sizes huge. Makes a nice change from al the overpriced horrible places in the area.

We ate in and both had a tasty baguette, with the option to be toasted! Very large and was £2.50 for my baguette to eat in so very cheap! Had a large selection of baguettes plus some noodles and drinks and other snacks on offer! Very quick service!

While studying abroad in London, this shop was on the way home from my class and I would stop and get lunch a few times a week! The kebab sandwich and the curry sandwich were my favorites! I loved to grab a sandwich, a drink, and head up to Hyde park (weather permitting) for a picnic. Or head over to... More

Inexpensive, well-prepared sandwiches for breakfast and lunch, with friendly service. What's not to like? I would have liked to try the chicken curry, and some of the other prepared items. Service is quick, but a queue can develop when workmen in the area break for lunch. I'd give it a 5, but it's just a no frills sanswith shop...so a... More

Looking for a quick afternoon lunch, I ordered the chicken avocado on baguette for £ 2.50. Amazingly delicious. The baguette was fresh, crunchy on the outside, soft on the inside. The sandwiches are chicken-salad-ish so I was worried about the common mayo-over-board. I was so happy by the seasoning in the dressing. The avocado was ripe and soft. They had... More

I've never written a review here before, but I just had to for this little gem. Can't believe it only has 1 review. It is cheap, tasty, has incredible variety and the shop owners are very friendly. I'm attending a conference at the Royal Albert Hall and it's worth the 10 minute walk at lunch break.
