“superb - reasonably priced bar with great bar menu”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2010

I cannot believe how reasonable the International bar prices are - and even more so during their Happy Hour (which actually lasts all evening from about 5pm) . We have had their Thai green curry several times and, unlike a previous reviewer, have always found it to be excellent. At lunchtime they charge less than £6.00 for it - including a glass of wine. We don't live in London, but you couldn't get that at that price in our home town.

And when you bear in mind the comfortable International's fantastic location in Trafalgar Square, we don't know how they do it for the price. The International has become our "rendevous bar" whenever we get to London. Totally brilliant. Can be very busy at peak times - pretty obvious why!!

“Avoid it like the plague!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2009

This was a terrible experience. The service was ridiculously slow - we waited 50 mins for a single course - and the staff were overstretched and consequently disinterested.

The food when it finally arrived was very poor. My daughter's fries were a tangled mess all stuck together and as for the Thai Curry! Not much more than a bowl of soggy rice.

Classic tourist trap which will give London a bad name.
