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

We had a wonderful meal at a really affordable price. 2 2 course meals with wine for only £35. Food was lovely and the service was great too.

We dropped in here on the off-chance for an evening meal. The board outside offered two courses for £11.95 or three for £13.95 and I must admit I wasn't expecting much. I was pleasantly surprised. A great choice of starters and mains. Before we had even had a chance to read the menu we were supplied with bread and olives.... More

We booked a table for 6 pm to eat at Bistro 1 before a show in Piccadilly, and ate off the fixed menu, which included a free glass of wine, all served extremely efficiently by friendly staff, which meant we ended up having 3 courses which we hadn't expected to do. Surprisingly busy considering it was a Tuesday night at... More

Had a meal late on a bank holiday Sunday afternoon, pre-theatre. Was quite surprised by the menu - it seemed to go on forever, almost too much choice. I ordered warm bacon and potato salad to start and the other half ordered the Felafel and Houmous. My salad was a good size and although the presentation wasn't fabulous, there was... More

Enticed by excellent value pre-theatre dinner + wine offer. Only one other table occupied during our visit. No atmosphere whatsoever. No choice of wine other than colour. Calamari starter tasted like pre-frozen, chicken skewers very dry & side salads with both very basic with no dressing. Main courses no better. Mediterranean chicken dish was a mish-mash of meat & veg... More

4 of us visited this place after taking good advantage of the 50% off drinks in the Gem bar just down the road (if you know what i mean!). Its not Michelin starred dining by any means, but what we all had was tasty and seemed fresh. Everyone cleaned their plates. I had smoked salmon and avocado to start followed... More

We visited Bistro 1 in Beak Street for the first time yesterday evening. Our friends had been there before and said it was good for a no nonsense (and cheap) meal. We had no great expectations but were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food and excellent service. For a starter I tried the spicy Turkish sausage which was... More

We had intended to eat in the nearby Old Coffee House (see my previous reviews) but as the place was packed due to a football match, we had to look for a nearby alternative. Bistro 1 proved to be a very good choice and it goes without saying we will be back soon. We tend to avoid tourist hotspots and... More
