I want to add one more restaurant in list i.e. Cinnamon Soho. Specially for those who like Indian food and wants to taste something different from daily routine. Definitely this is the place your looking for. The food is delicious!

Shame Wahaca is not on there! I work round the corner and recently tried the new taco lunch which is really good value.

Incredible that GOKYUZU in Harringay Green Lanes is missing!!! It is by far the very best value for money I've comed accross anywhere in London, I basically get fully stuffed wit leftover to take home for less than 10 GBP for myself only. and any turkish dish you can try is super-delicious, with fresh bread in stone-oven, tzaktziki and complimentary tea after your meal. It was (or still is) 2nd in Trip Advisor!

Saravanaa Bhavan for Indian is amazing - theres branches in Tooting, Southall, Wembley and Ilford (plus a few others I think). The most genuine Indian food, vegetarian and super cheap!
