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

I have recently (a few months back) bought the 1eat card (http://www.1eat.co.uk).
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.
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.http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/676239
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.
1eat is ABSOLUTELY GREAT, I love it and use it frequently. The 1eat card is always in my wallet and whenever I see a 1eat.co.uk 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!
