Hello people!

What are your recommendations on a cheap but nice bite to eat out in SE1?

You know, it's Wednesday evening, you fancy going out for dinner, but it's not yet payday and you don't fancy paying £18 for burger and chips with service, for example.

Thinking of any cuisine really, as long as it's good. Maybe not a greasy spoon

Any thoughts?

Pub Thai? There are plenty in SE1.


The Colombian place on Rockingham street, Leños & Carbón. Great value for money.

Mamuska upstairs at the E&C Shopping Centre. Awesome Polish food. Highly recommended.
Or Dragon Castle, Walworth Road for amazing Chinese.

did you know Wednesday is Beer & Burger night @thecrownsouthwark

you can have any of our legendary burgers and a pint of beer ( or glass of wine) for the price of the burger only! (£8 - £10)

you can choose from any of our 10 burgers or try the specials which this week are
Southern Comfort spicy chicken burger
The Posideon Adventure fish burger

Our beer selection is not generic run of the mill beers and lagers as found in most pubs. Try a Brooklyn lager or maybe a Bavarian Wheat beer.

We have made a lot of changes to the place recently and its now an enjoyable place to come for food, drink and relaxing with friends.

see our website
follow us on twitter @crownsouthwark

maybe see you here

roundaboutnews thanks for the Mamuska tip! Haven't really had much Polish food but that place sounds great. Nice website too

La Martinet liking the sound of Leños & Carbón too! And Bigphil thanks for letting me know about the offer! The Crown's a great gaff :)

If you search voucher codes for restaurants it throws out loads of deals. We went to Cafe Rouge today 2 for 1, make different in the current climate.

Just a little away from SE1, but less than a 10 minute walk from Lambeth North - Zeitgeist goes good, inexpensive German food.

There's also the various branches of Tas, and their Ev restaurant and bar.

And I'm told 'My Big Fat Greek' at Elephant is good, though I've not been there myself.

Cafe Nawaz - good Indian food, well priced.

Yeah the Greek is a good meal.

Second dragon castle.

Also the noodle place by the shopping centre has great, very cheap, food - just looks a bit rough around the edges.
