Visited with a friend for a casual lunch. Stumbled upon a voucher - 2 courses for £9.95 - bargain. Very quick service, from a slightly flustered, but efficient, polite waiter. Good tasting food, served super quick. A huge restaurant, be great for a big party!!!

Visited here on Thursday night, a family of three about 8pm. The service was very quick. Too quick in fact. Starters arrived within two minutes of ordering and as soon as we'd finished eating them the mains arrived...before the starter dishes were even cleared away!...More

This is the best pizza express I have been to. Service was excellent. The ceasar salad was lovely and the pizza tasty. The night before I went to an upmarket restaurant in London and the service was not great. I think they need to send...More

Big time attractions such as the London Eye and a
thriving theatre scene (compliments of the National
Theatre and the Young Vic) are but a few of the
reasons that Southbank is such a collectively
cherished part of town. With plenty of family friendly
