We rarely spend for those, with exception of the very reasonably priced lunches in many of them and still eat extremely well for the weeks of our visits.

If you are a frequent visitor to London and enjoy our restaurants take a look at a website - Catherine's Hot Dinners. It lists and reviews many new and just about to open, London restaurants.

Some of the more expensive restaurants have 'soft launches' where they offer 50% discounts just before they fully open to the public.

Basically, you are a guinea pig, but I have been to some excellent places that I possibly couldn't afford if I had to pay their normal prices. Great if you can go for lunch as it is easier to get a booking than for dinner.

I think Britain gets a bad rap on its food. We find the food generally to be quite good.

The simple reality is that today, London is one of the food / eating capitals of the world.

In part this is due to some of the same factors that have reportedly led Samer Halimeh to open his flagship jewellery shop in London even though his company is based in New York: because of its status as the "billionaire capital of the world" and its easy accessibility for customers from Europe, Russia, the Middle East and India. Money comes here, money is spent here, and money is spent here by the people on whom it has been spent here.

In reading posts like this...it amazes me why people get so upset when someone wants to find a McDonalds or BK while traveling the world. Let the person eat whatever they want. It is their vacation...I also enjoy McDonalds and eat at one in every port we visit...so what...

I was just in one in London. To use the bathroom....Fake food and unhealthy food is not my thing. But to each their own. Yuck.

The other person wanted to use them because they have food allergies. The problem is that making an assumption that the ingredients are the same in other countries as in your own could be a mistake.

I know of course that it's no joking to have food alergies, but if I had to rely on BK or McDo I would rather kill myself. Of course I go to McDo as well, but maybe once on a trip and once or twice in a month at home if I have no other choice.

But London has so much to offer and part of the fun of travelling is tasting different food on every day;

I just stayed in London for 5 days and during my stay I've eaten just once in a McDo and the other meals I had
from Japan, China, Vietnam, Jamaica, India, Italy and Britain itself (your regular Fish and Chips)....

That is a remarkably insensitive thing to say to someone with serious food allergies. Not to put too fine a point on it, the OP probably asked the question because they were worried about killing themselves.

Fortunately they got some decent advice when they asked back in May...
