Opening in 1965, the year I went to college, Gaby's Deli has been feeding London ever since. Prices have, of course, risen over the years, but it still possible to get a good meal at a good value price here. Gaby's specialises in Salt beef,...More

Gaby’s has been around for a long time now and is fondly thought of by a lot of Londoners, particularly those who like going to, or work in, the West End. The food is decent quality and the prices are fair. This is a no...More
