Bistro 1, London: 7 reviews and 9 photos
UPDATE February 2011: Prices checked - they really are still that reasonable!
If you're looking for dinner in Soho and don't want to spend a fortune, this could fit the bill. It's a friendly little bistro-style restaurant - nothing fancy but with a decent menu, cheerful service and with lower than average prices for this part of town.
I started with the deep-fried brie served with mixed berry coulis, which was OK, and followed this with the fillet of sea bream served with mashed potato and a smoked salmon & saffron cream sauce - again, this was reasonable but not exciting. Chris enthused about his starter of Turkish spicy sausages and said his main course mousakka was, like my dishes, OK
More than the food itself I remember the warm welcome, with juicy olives and fresh crusty bread brought immediately to our table. With these, our two courses each, plus a large glass of red vino for me and a couple of beers for Chris, we paid a little over £30 for two - very good value I thought.
They do a set menu with two courses for £9.90 or three for £10.90 (dinner prices - lunch time it's even cheaper)
