London is among the most expensive cities in the world, and at the moment the US-to-pound exchange rate is frightening. While I might love to visit the 5-star restaurants on my upcoming trip, my checkbook has issued a firm, "No way." If I'm going to "do London," then I have to do it inexpensively.

I spent some time with the "full size" Time Out London Eating and Drinking (Time Out Guides) before I ultimately chose this scaled down version. The two primary reasons were practicality (this book is smaller and will fit into a pocketbook) and affordability (of the recommended meals, not the book's cost). Both are very good, but I knew that I wouldn't get full use of the full size book.

To be included in Time Out Cheap Eats, the 500 restaurants must have an average meal price of under 20 pounds. That's about $40 US, hardly a bargain at first glance, but that meal is expected to include a starter, entree, dessert, and a beer and half bottle of wine. Restaurants are price-identified on three levels, with the least expensive being under 14 pounds per person. There's not a major "best of" grading system, though the ones they particularly like get a star next to the listing.

The main listings are by geography, and roughly associated with Tube stops, so you can quickly find affordable restaurants in Chiswick or Battersea. There are also maps (with each restaurant clearly and readably marked), and indexes by cuisine (Belgian, burgers) and by restaurant name.

Like its bigger sibling, each restaurant review has complete address and contact info, map location, price range, and credit card acceptance.

Cheap eats is a complete waste of money, the places listed tended to be fast food knock offs and the info un-updated. Yet, the most frustrating thing was that the vast majority of food choices in this book tended to be very non-British. If your going to London, England you want to eat foods that are English, yet page after page of Time Out consists of pizza, chinese, thai, indian, chinese, russian, middle eastern, chinese again. And the page listing a few pie and mash shops or Fish and Chip shops could have been updated it is very frustrating making a trek to a location only to find it has been closed down for some time. And the final complaint here is the huge number of pages that are dedicated to advertisements for surprise surprise places they chose as a Cheap eat.
This book was so frustrating and worthless that after, three different closures I tossed it out with the rest of the garabage. No if you wish to find Cheap Eats that are truly worth eating save your money talk to a bus driver, cabbie or my favorite a policeman who'll walk you to the location and introduce you to his buddies at the pub and maybe buy you a pint.

We took this book on a trip to London (obviously), and went to several of the restaurants in the guide. All of the restaurants that we visited were fabulous. We would look up a restaurant and then go to that part of town to eat, which really helped in getting us out to other parts of London that we might not have normally visited. Highly recommended. Also went to eat a couple of times at "Wasabi", a Japanese fast food chain. It wasn't in the book, but I really enjoyed it. The sushi was very fresh and super reasonably priced.

I recently visited London for the first time and beforehand I went through half a dozen London guides. This one, Lonely Planet's England Guide, and London for Dummies are the ones I recommend.

London is an expensive city, including food, and "Time Out Cheap Eats in London" will provide you with great leads on lower-priced restaurants listed neighborhood by neighborhood. It's useful to remember that central London is relatively small and very walkable so be sure to check out the sections on neighborhoods outside of the one where you are staying. The book has longer reviews of recommended restaurants and short notes about recommended chain restaurants (no, not American chains!) in the neighborhood. Also take a look at Time Out's website for updates.
