“Great Pre Theatre”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 29, 2013

Bit difficult to find, taxi driver said he could not go to door, hint the street with 1 Leicester Square at one end is the street to be on at the other end.
Bright restaurant and friendly young staff. Limited choice on the pre theatre menu. Optied for the fish soup which was fantastic. Mains were sausage which was good.

“A Great sunday Lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 21, 2013

Really enjoyed sunday Lunch yesterday . Very pleasant setting , friendly and efficient staff . The menu is a set one of limited choice . But the starters , mains and desserts are all really excellent . We enjoyed the Dexter beef it was like a very good fillet ,whilst the devilled mussels had a real zing . looking at others enjoying the pork that too seemed excellent . My partner is not a desert person but despite the promise of sharing I saw nothing of her Salty caramel dessert . Mind you I had already scoffed my almond sponge pud , yum yum .The meal was excellent value and we washed it all down with very good Camden beer and a bottle of the house white which was a very nice full flavoured number .

“Mmm Sunday Lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 21, 2013

My friend & I booked this restaurant for the Sunday lunch deal - 2 courses for £19.50 prior to our trip to the theatre to see The Commitments, which was great & well worth seeing. Anyway, the restaurant is small but tastefully decorated & you can see the chefs at work, which is always great. Our waiter was very friendly & attentive & the service was quick but we didn't feel rushed at all. When we arrived there were only a couple of tables occupied but they all started filling up from 1pm till it was full. The food itself was very tasty, I had the roast pork, which was a huge portion but sadly an issue with the ovens meant no crackling :-( My friend had the roast beef, which came medium rare, so if you like it more done than this, make sure you let them know. Both portions were very generous & more than enough to fill you up for the rest of the day. The wine selection was very varied with the least expensive red at £21.00, which was actually very good. I would recommend this for a pre-theatre meal for value for money & friendly, quick service.

“Good food at very reasonnable prices”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 16, 2013

The restaurant is small and would benefit from a better exposition (it is located on a backstreet just off Leicester Square) but offers british dishes of good quality.

The food presentation is simple, the combination of the ingredients well chosen and the staff very friendly. It might not be the most amazing place to eat in London but is perfectly suitable for a decent and casual lunch/diner without the show-off which usually goes with the most sought-after restaurants.

“Excellent Sunday Lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 16, 2013

One Leicester Street serves very well judged British food at very fair prices (exceptional if you were to compare with other barns of mediocrity that flog utter carp around Leicester Sq). Service was a charm and preprandial cocktails delightful in their simplicity. I'll be back to try more of the kitchen's cooking and cocktails upstairs. It is an ideal space for a spot of delicious calm in the 'ustle n bustle.
