I got regularly takeway lunch from Makan, sometimes eat in.

The location (under the motorway bridge) and the decoration is certainly not glamorous but this is not the point : you go there to have cheap and healthy food (vegetables + meat + rice or noodles for £4.5, more if you choose the special courses)

Staff is friendly and truely Malaysian, totally unpretentious like the place : a treat nowadays in London.

Altgether, £4.5 for a healthy lunch (that prevent you having to buy supermarket rubbish if you are working in the area and if you have no canteen), Makan does its job very well. If you are in the area and if you want a cheap and good quick lunch, you just have to go there.

Books for Cooks

Ok it's hard to get a table there (open just for lunch and usually very busy, you really need to go at 12.00 on the dot if you want to be sure to be seated - no booking -) but if you manage it, that is simply the best food experience in term of value for money in London, and by far....

3 courses meal for £7 (£10 if you have a glass of the - very good - house wine), delicious home made bread, first and second course are usually great but special mention is to be given to dessert that are just amazing.

The restaurant area is often packed (less during the summer though) ... with local people which is usually an excellent sign.

If you are lucky enough to work closeby like me... that is a real treat.
