Always great value

This staff provide a friendly and excellent service. The atmosphere is always welcoming. This is the best family orientated restaurant in Purley. It is also good value for money

The pizza express in purley is stylishly decorated as are all pizza expresses. The pizzas are good - although I wish the quattro stagione pizza had cheese on all the pizza and not just one quarter. The salad dressing is tasty. The coffee and mini dessert is a good idea to get a taste of something sweet but not too... More

The pizza express deals are great, not many restaurants have them throughout the weekend starting on Friday, smart thinking! Pizzas, salad and puddings are always delicious. The refurbishment looks great too. Only one tiny point, two large parties of children with their parents dining at 6.30 - 8pm made the restaurant very noisy, so not a good dining experience this...

I LIKE Pizza Express! Why? The menu is always reliable, and I have never had a bad meal yet! The first time I ate at Pizza Express was many years ago in Bristol. I remember that the pizza was delicious. The garlic bread with mozzarella cheese was big! However, it has shrunk over the years, but is still tasty. This... More

We stopped by on the way home as there were not many other places around the area to eat where you could actually sit down. The food was good, and the place itself looked nice enough. The let down however was with the staff. They were standing in the corner, some eating and some just talking. I had to physically... More

This Pizza Express has recently had a refresh. it is now a stylish restaurant . We had the fixed price Christmas menu which offers good value. The Bruschetta is really tasty. I had the pizza with the Hoisin Sauce and the pulled duck. This was really good and reminded me of eating a Chinese crispy duck. Helpful staff and always... More
