Cheap places to eat in London (where you won’t get sick)

Curry 4 U

(closest tube station)

Curry 4 U
114 Camden Road London NW1 9EE (Camden Town)
The best curryI’ve had. Great prices. Not on the average tourist track, but great for a take-out if you’re staying in the area, or if you want to eat it by the canal near Camden Locks or in Regent Park. Plus the staff is really charming (let-me-open-the-door-for-you-miss kind of charming).


3 Panton Street, London, SW1Y4DL (Piccadilly Circus)

Great Moroccan food. I’ve never tasted a better chicken pastilla. Great prices too considering the location, and inspired decor. If it appears to be full, make sure to ask for a table downstairs. For all the French-speaking people out there, indulge.


The Wellington
351 Strand, London, WC2R 0HS (Covent Garden or Temple)
Has the best fish & chips of the city and a nicefamily atmosphere upstairs. When you’re done eating, you can go downstairs for a true pub experience. Part of the London Ale Trail, which gives you a free T-Shirt when you buy 5 pints. Do you need another reason to go?

Pret à Manger


Everywhere, really.

This is probably one of the things I miss most about London. Gotta love those fresh, organic and healthy sandwiches. Plus you support a great company as they distribute unsold products to homeless people in the city everyday. My favorite is the Chicken Salad sandwich with the Tomato Soup. Mmmm.


Goodfare Italian Restaurante
26 Parkway, London, NW1 7AH (Camden Town)
Best lasagna in town. Enough said. Not the kindest people at first (they’re Italian after all) but it’s a small, cosy place for a relaxed meal. They only accept cash though.


The Court
108 Tottenham Court Road, London, W1T 5AB (Warren Street)

Definitely the cheapest pub in Bloomsbury. It’s very close to UCL so it has a very friendly and laid-back atmosphere, perfect for a student crowd. Huge TV downstairs and upstairs, hence the incredible vibe on a game night. More often than not, you can get 2 selected plates for £10 (mostly burgers, but also fish & chips and the usual).

Dickens Inn


Dickens Inn
St. Catherine’s Dock, Wapping, London E1 9LB (Tower Hill)
If you can get a table outside, you might catch a glimpse of Tower Bridge. The food was great and not too expensive for the location. Great choice on a sunny day, plus the docks are really peaceful.
