Misato near Leicester Square, AKA The Place That Everyone Walks Past But Never Notices.
Staff, food, portions, and prices are superb.
Oh, and it's Japanese cuisine.
how about some british food?
and also why do you guys put picture of a vomiting face but sound like you like it?
Lot's of Brick Lane love in here! Very cool considering i'm there drinking my Red Stripe twice a week.
I'd recommend Brick Lane market too, they have a range of foreign food stalls Thai/Chinese/Turksih/Japanese etc, Very affordable.
If you go on a Sunday you have to market too and they make fresh smoothies/juice in front of you for £2.50
Hmm... For British food, I'd go for Porters in Covent Garden, Mother Mash on Carnaby Street, S&M (sausage & mash) Cafe at the O2 Arena, or Riverfront Bar & Kitchen at the BFI Southbank.
Otherwise, Wahaca (Covent Garden or Westfield) for Mexican, Mango Tree (Victoria) or Busaba Eathai (Wardour Street) for Thai, Le Pont de La Tour (Tower Bridge) or The Swan at The Globe (Bankside) for yummy food and a nice setting, and The Yard (Shoreditch) for Italian.

Yeah, Misatos is a definite addition, as the amount of food you get for your money is massive, (mmm, teriyaki chicken with extra rice).
I make too much of my own food, so I'm not actually that useful on exact restaurants.
Location-wise, you'll find great restaurants and cafes around Brick Lane (as mentioned multiple times before), as well as Edgware Road and China Town.
Oh, that's a point. You can get some strange food down at Borough Market, next to London Bridge station, but half of it is undergoing restoration, so it's a bit limited. You can easily pick up a couple of ostrich steaks (raw), or some veal burgers (cooked) around there, when it's running at full capacity.
For food stalls - Camden market and the Sunday Brick Lane market are pretty good. I've never seen such variety.
