Good places to eat out with the 1eat discount card for a London student?

fellow students

I have recently (a few months back) bought the 1eat card (

I am interested in cheap (below £20) and big portions, because I love to eat in zone 1.

I ate in many places before, but looking to try some new restaurants, but recently because of shortage of time do not really want to risk bad surprises.

Any recommendations?

  1. Just did a quick browse, and a few places on the 1eat list caught my eye. All are places I've been to before:

    Rincon Quiteno - Holloway - not in zone 1, but portions are pretty big. I thought the main meat meals were good, but not great - but pretty representative of what you'd find in the average restaurant in Ecuador. The ceviche was fantastic though.

    Chilli Cool - Bloomsbury - Looks like your card gives you a 10% discount. I thought the Sichuan food here was pretty good.

    Ravi Shankar and Diwana - Two places on Drummond St....there might have been some others too. Both of these places are pretty decent, good value for £, and even better value w/ the discount card.

      Thanks a lot Dave for this quick answer :-)

      I think I will try the Ecuadorian one, this would be something really new for me, although quite a hike from my place.

      Will let you know how I liked the other places later on. I hope to check the places this week.

    2. Hey!!

      1eat is ABSOLUTELY GREAT, I love it and use it frequently. The 1eat card is always in my wallet and whenever I see a sticker on the door, I know I get a good deal just by presenting my card.

      SWAY restaurant near Holborn is great - 50% off there, and the steaks are delicious.

      I also like TIGER TIGER - mainstream, but very popular place and the 50% makes it a great deal - very great interior and they have a bar/club, too!

      Also, Chicago Rib Shack restaurant - Princess diane used to dine there. 20% off with 1eat card and the ribs are mouth watering! the cocktails are great - 2 for 1 during lunch time I believe.

      Really happpy with the 1eat membership, I highly recommend!
