I had always wanted to go to Smollensky's but thought it would be really expensive. It was a freezing cold day and we were showing a friend and her 13 year old son around rainy London. It was a Friday lunchtime and not crowded at all. I had the £12.00 two course menu - fish cake for starter, steak and skin-on fries with a side salad (extra £2.50) all perfectly cooked. The steak was medium and absolutely gorgeous, My veggie husband found something vegan to eat which is unusual. He often goes hungry until he finds a falafel place! My friend had scallops - a little underdone and her son had a huge burger that he clearly enjoyed very much - and this boy is a very picky eater. My daughter had the ribs which she loved and the chicken pasta alfredo which was ok but nothing special. The one dessert we ordered was divine - a really yummy piece of mississippi mud pie. We fought over it!! The wine I had was yummy and we all had smiles on our faces. It was affordable, tasty food and to top it all the service was excellent. We had a lovely warm smiley waitress who was very patient with us - we did take time to choose what we wanted. Unlike most reviewers of Smollensky's we weren't going to the theratre so weren't in hurray. I found the service attentive, appropriate and pleasant. We'll definitely come back for more!!!
