Early Evening Dinner - London (Central ish)
I am visiting London next week for a gig at Royal Albert Hall and need somewhere to eat, allowing enough time to get to the venue for 8.30, so a relatviely early and quick feed needed as probably won't be in to London (Waterloo) until 6 at earliest. Any top tips for either good early eating venues or good eating near the RFH much appreciated. I am open to any cuisine choice, if can keep around £10-15 a head max that would probably be good, party of three or four.
Thanks in advance
Are you going to the Royal Albert Hall, or the Royal Festival Hall? (you refer to both).. if Royal Albert Hall, there are quite a few places down by south kensington tube, about 7 minute walk away.
Kulu Kulu is a safe bet - Pretty OK kaiten (conveyerbelt) sushi. Far from top notch but miles better than Itsu or Yo Sushi etc. You can get a reasonable feed for £10-15 there. Try one of thier prawn tempura, salmon and avocado hand rolls. They do pretty good non-sushi dishes too. As long as you can get a seat (its a small place) , you can be in and out really quick.
Also, there is Rotisserie Bute Street. A simple, no nonsense sort of place, nice decor, reasonably priced. Their spit roast chicken was beautifully cooked.
Not sure if this helps but here's a map of restaurants near the RAH:
(Personally I would be tempted to jump off at Gloucester Road, which is on your tube route, and grab a burger at Byron. It's one of the better chains and would certainly fit your budget, leaving you with cash to spend at RAH's pricey bars!)
