My son and I ate in here after finding it by chance! Very quiet at a Monday lunchtime but perfect as it was fast service. Staff efficient and food was delicious. Look for offers on the Pizza Express website to save money.

Enjoyed a lovely meal here on our trip to London- the food was delicious, service was good and found it easy to get a table in this busy part of London. Ever better that we got 40% student discount! (Available on a Monday and Tuesday!)

This place used to be good back in the day but the food has become pretty standard. There is nothing that really jumps out at you from the menu. Service was average.
