We decided to eat here with friends and their children as it was near where they were staying. It was a Sunday evening and very quiet, so child friendly. We had pizzas and desserts, which were as you'd expect. The desserts were very good.

You cannot go wrong with Pizza Express. I love the thin crust pizza and never tire of going to any Pizza Express in London.

I like Pizza Express a lot and when I ate at the Great Portland St branch it was the service that stood out for me. My colleague brought her young baby and the staff couldn't have been more helpful. We had dough balls, garlic bread,...More

This sophisticated and sociable slice of Central
London is a shopper’s paradise, offering the latest

conveniently located between the major retail
thoroughfares of Regent Street to the west and
Tottenham Court Road to the east, with a handful of
well connected Tube stations dotted around the area
for easy transport. This neighbourhood is a favorite
