Sharing is caring!

Lots of us like to head to the capital to take in the sights, enjoy the hustle and bustle of Notting Hill markets and perhaps take in a show. The train fare or however else you travel into London can cost quite a lot, as can accommodation. One thing that doesn’t have to cost the entirety of your bank account though is food. Let’s have a look at the best cheap restaurants in London where the food is phenomenal!

Lahore Kebah House

If you love a good Indian meal, head to Whitechapel where you can find amazing dishes for under £10! This place is often on the list of must try curry houses in the East End. Discover amazing meat on a stick and plenty of delicious street food. You can also bring your own booze which is great to wash it all down!

Din Tai Fung

Head to Covent Garden and discover the most amazing Taiwanese chain serving up dumplings and regional street food. It has a bit of a cult following does Din Tai Fung and you might face a bit of a queue. It’s worth the wait though. You might think that Chinatown has the best Asian food but this is a must. Golden prawn pancakes are incredible and that dish will set you back a tenner.
