Reviews - What do customers think about Time Out Cheap Eats in London (Time Out Guides)?
Helpful, but a bit frustrating to use. Jul 21, 2008
Although, originally we felt that its origanization into different areas would be helpful, we ended up paging around the book a lot to figure out where we wanted to eat. I'm not sure exactly how to fix the problem, but it seemed like there might be a better way to group the maps and the reviews closer together.
Being Americans traveling in London with the weak dollar these days, we were always looking for just the cheapest places. It would have been very helpful to have lists like the Top 50 Single Pound Sign Restaurants rather than having to page around looking for them.
In the end, it saved us money and had us eating at a few interesting places, but it was just a bit harder to use than we initially thought.
You'll find better deals on your own & have fun doing it. Jul 12, 2008
Cheap eats is a complete waste of money, the places listed tended to be fast food knock offs and the info un-updated. Yet, the most frustrating thing was that the vast majority of food choices in this book tended to be very non-British. If your going to London, England you want to eat foods that are English, yet page after page of Time Out consists of pizza, chinese, thai, indian, chinese, russian, middle eastern, chinese again. And the page listing a few pie and mash shops or Fish and Chip shops could have been updated it is very frustrating making a trek to a location only to find it has been closed down for some time. And the final complaint here is the huge number of pages that are dedicated to advertisements for surprise surprise places they chose as a Cheap eat. This book was so frustrating and worthless that after, three different closures I tossed it out with the rest of the garabage. No if you wish to find Cheap Eats that are truly worth eating save your money talk to a bus driver, cabbie or my favorite a policeman who'll walk you to the location and introduce you to his buddies at the pub and maybe buy you a pint.
Excellent Book Jun 25, 2008
We took this book on a trip to London (obviously), and went to several of the restaurants in the guide. All of the restaurants that we visited were fabulous. We would look up a restaurant and then go to that part of town to eat, which really helped in getting us out to other parts of London that we might not have normally visited. Highly recommended. Also went to eat a couple of times at "Wasabi", a Japanese fast food chain. It wasn't in the book, but I really enjoyed it. The sushi was very fresh and super reasonably priced.
very helpful! May 3, 2008
I bought this book in planning for a trip to London. With today's exchange rate, I really need to get the most for my money and this book is a great help. The reviews are clear, well-organized and have been invaluable in helping me plan my trip!
One of the few London guides worth buying and using Apr 26, 2008
I recently visited London for the first time and beforehand I went through half a dozen London guides. This one, Lonely Planet's England Guide, and London for Dummies are the ones I recommend.
London is an expensive city, including food, and "Time Out Cheap Eats in London" will provide you with great leads on lower-priced restaurants listed neighborhood by neighborhood. It's useful to remember that central London is relatively small and very walkable so be sure to check out the sections on neighborhoods outside of the one where you are staying. The book has longer reviews of recommended restaurants and short notes about recommended chain restaurants (no, not American chains!) in the neighborhood. Also take a look at Time Out's website for updates.
