The Southbank has never been a great area for eateries if you're looking for a bite under a tenner - too many chains, or just a selection of pre-packaged sandwiches at most of the galleries in the area.

So, Leon, although a chain, albeit small, was a nice find, located in the new part, underneath the 'fish bowl' flats behind The Tate. For a decent bite to eat, served up fast and fresh tasting, with a good selection of vegetarian options and sugar-free drinks, this place hit the mark. The seats were plenty to house the many customers on the cold, rainy day and the staff were friendly and fast.

My meal of s
weet potato and okra stew was tasty and, with a drink, came to just over £6, though I wasn't quite full enough (no protein I suspect)! Luckily my friend got a side of baked fries (absolutely can't be healthy as they tasted so good) and because her meatball dish was so filling, I got a lot of her chips - happy days!

Whilst Leon is not a place I shall seek out especially, I am happy to have discovered it as a healthy fast-food joint for future post-exhibition, pre-cinema or shopping break, eats.
