Pizza Express- Leicester Square

When it comes to the end of the month and you’re tight for cash but you don’t want to be a social recluse, Orange really have come up with the answer, Orange Wednesdays! I’m pretty sure everyone is aware of their fantastic 2 for 1 cinema ticket promotion which has been running for years, but did you know you can also use your ticket for Pizza Express?

All you have to do is text ‘Film’ to 241 and you’ll receive a text with a number on it. Then just go to the orange website and print off the corresponding voucher and fill in the number that has been text to you. Do note though, that you should do this in advance, it took about an hour to receive the code through to my phone.

This week I met a friend for a quick lunch at Pizza Express in St. Martin’s Lane, which is a 2 minute walk away from Leicester Square tube station. The restaurant is deceivingly big on the inside which meant although the restaurant was busy; we had no problem at all getting a table in the limited time we had.

I’m not a huge fan of pizza (much to the disgust of many of my friends!) so I opted for the very tasty Pollo Verdure salad which consists of torn chicken on a bed of roasted Italian vegetables, rocket and spinach, with garlic bread on the side. We also took advantage of the free dough balls that you get with the offer as our starter, with extra garlic butter!

The service was very good, as mentioned earlier we were seating promptly and our waitress was very attentive. This was a particular plus as we were eating in our lunch hours and we would have been late back to our desks if the service was slow.

Pizza Express is expanding rapidly and in Central London I could probably count more of the Italian chain restaurants than I can McDonalds! As a result of this, they are able to provide great tasting food for a very reasonable price due to their vast economies of scale.

This was the perfect place for a quick catch up with a friend over a bite to eat if you’re not a fan of fast food. Two courses and a drink each came to under £15 for both of us, absolute bargain!

If you’re not an orange customer there are plenty of ways to eat at a discounted rate here, either with your taste London card or with the numerous vouchers available on websites such as student beans and myvouchercodes.com
