This restaurant has a lot going for it but one fundamental flaw that for me personally overshadows the rest. Table was booked quickly and easily online, tick. The restaurant was clean and tidy, tick. Positioned on the high street, meaning it was easy to get to and back by taxi, big tick. Staff very friendly and efficient. Big, big tick.... More

We go here regularly so we really should review it! Much better than Pizza Express Purley (far too noisy - see my review), this restaurant has lovely tables at the back with a view of "the garden" (see other people's photos). All the usual Pizza Express menu food, always busy but never too crowded and good for the occasional family... More

I visited on a Saturday night with a few friends. The restaurant was barely occupied and the service was at a leisurely pace which was suitable. Whilst it does not advertise itself as a fine dining establishment, I was disappointed that the manager was clearing our plates on the table and reaching across the table and guests to deliver food...

Today we visited pizza express in Croydon valley park Quick but unfriendly service Tasty food but no effort made for presentation Atmosphere was ruined by it being echoing and a moody waiter crashing and bangining plates around Wouldn't recommend this branch.

We eat here at least once a fortnight ... and never tire of the food ... it is good to be able to eat vegan in a mainstream restaurant ... and the staff are always friendly and attentive. With the added bonus of downloaded discount vouchers ... it's always excellent value for money!

Had lunch here on Sunday. Only two other tables occupied. Despite the lack of customers, the service was rather slow. Food was very good though. My main complaint is how noisy it was in the restaurant, even though there were so few of us. There is nothing soft in the place to absorb the noise - no carpets, no curtains... More

Anyone who goes to Pizza Express normally knows what they are getting. The food is great, fast, warm, tasty and good value, especially when you get a discount online. What makes it great however, is always the staff. The manager was pleasant but clearly not a people person. The waiter was friendly, but inattentive. We got what we expected as... More

everything as expected Food a bit average, fairly standard fare for mid range Italian, service was cheery and made a very pleasant family celebration. Calzone picante want really. It needed some more zing, bit bland, even the very mild chilli oil didn't rescue it and it could have done with another couple of minutes in the oven. The freshly made... More

This was a good meal out for the me and the kids when I was visiting my brother. I had a lovely chicken ceasar salad but the place could have been more kid friendly.

We often go this Pizza Express as you can park nearby in the large car park which is pay and display and is a fixed charge for the whole evening. The food is very good and the staff are lovely and very helpful but one gave it 4 stars as the service can be a little slow in busy periods,... More
