A great place to eat some delicious salads and many other Mediterranean dishes. The prices are very reasonable for the West End. Seating is cramped and the service can be brusque, but go there for the food.

Having been drawn in by the smell of fast food, we were disappointed with the fare! Fallafel in a wrap was very disappointing as it was a little dangerous on anyone with fillings. The humus was delicious but the wrap was cold. Presentation is everything and the wrap should have been dampened and microwaved to freshen up. The salad could... More

Like the previous reviewer I've been visiting Gabi's for longer than I can remember. Easily the best falafel in London and the range of salads are a treat. It's really reasonable considering how central it is and I hope it remains in London for as long as it can.

I have been going to Gaby’s for over 10 years, I cannot explain why I haven’t posted a review until now. Perhaps it’s the consistently excellent falafel which have been voted the best in London. Gaby’s is a friendly delicatessen style restaurant, perfect for lunch or for pre/post theatre meals. There is an extensive range of salads on offer, the... More

I always loved this little 'theatrical' deli in theatre land. However something has changed and not for the better. The waitresses, two young girls without much English, were clearly overwhelmed (even baffled) by coping with all the customers. They seemed not to understand most of what was said to them. My husband had his food put in front of him... More

We continue to go to Gaby's on a very regular basis - more or less every time we are in the West End, sometimes several times in a week. The food is good, wholesome fare. My favourites are the Hummus Special (with eggs or falafel - I am usually cheeky and ask for both) and the selection of salads, but... More

This is just the perfect place for a meal in Theatre Land. No need to book which is great, and excellent food. Great value for money considering the location. Three of us turned up with just an hour before a matinee show. Had a great lunch and plenty of time to make the Theatre. Met the owner who has been... More

Ate at Gaby's with my 19 year old daughter last night, before going to the London Dungeon 'Lates'. We both had falafels in pitta bread with salad and I also had a small 'deli plate' - you get to choose 5 different salad items, but this is no ordinary salad. I had a spicy spinach and chick pea dish, stuffed... More

Gaby's has been here forever and it really hasn't ever changed. It is a resolutely unfashionable, good value deli-cum-restaurant which offers a wide range of ethnic food, mainly Middle Eastern in type, in a cheerful, unadorned, well worn and cheerful ambience. Service is fine: it gets your orders taken and delivered to your table with a degree of reasonable humour... More
