This is part of 3 restaurants in a small chain and reminded me very much of the simple tasty food you get in Greece and Cyprus. It's not 5 star, but then what do you expect at these prices? We had a 2 course lunch with a glass of Prosecco for under £10 each, you'd pay more eating at McDonalds... More

No this is not michellin star stuff but you get what you pay for and, i have to say, I have been here many times and never had a bad meal. Service is quick and efficient, and food is always tasty.

We found this great little bistro a few months ago and returned yesterday. That's always risky as often one is disappointed. However we were very pleased to find that it continues to be of of our favourite eateries in central London. The set menu is varied and the food we enjoyed was excellent. For starters we had calamari and bacon... More

This is obviously a very popular restaurant judging by the queues and wait for tables; and the well signed meal deal of £11.90 for 2 courses; and its location is perfect. There is a vast array of restaurants and eateries in this area; but this is certainly one to avoid. Its true you get what you pay for, but really... More

Looking for a restaurant for a pre-theatre dinner and found Bistro 1 in Beak Street, just round the corner from Carnaby Street and London Palladium. Two courses (either Starter and Main or Main and dessert) for £11.90 and a glass of wine! Meal was excellent, good sized portions and I can really recommend this lovely restaurant.

Popped in for a mid week dinner, went for the 2 courses deal. Large portions and tasty food. Varied menu with plenty of choice. If you want a no frills but very tasty dinner this is the place to come. 2 courses and a glass on wine each came to £31 in total with just a tip to add. Bargain!!

I found this place just walking along the street. So many places in that area seem like factories. This was very pleasant. The staff was was very friendly and helpful. Sometimes when I eat alone on business trips, as I was this time, it feels like they are trying to get you out as fast as possible. Not here though.... More

I was a bit suspicious when we booked a table for the evening menu at £11.95 for two courses (£13.95 for three), then as we arrived we walked past crowded restaurants and bars, some with queues, to find Bistro 1 with only one table occupied. Uh-oh, what's wrong with it? we thought - but the answer was absolutely nothing! We... More

A small cute restaurant with eastern decor. The staff were very friendly and seated us next to the big open window, great in summer. They have a deal for 2courses for £8-9 which is excellent value. The food is quite simple but really tasty. They also give you bread and olives with your drinks. I had the calamari starter and... More
