Save it

Leicester Square's Salt'n Pepper aims to bring Pakistani cuisine to central London, with branches of the restaurant group already existing in Lahore, Islamabad and Karachi. At Salt'n Pepper you'll find food that draws on influences from all regions of Pakistan as well as from parts of India. There's a cracking al fresco deck for summer months, too. 

The menu ranges from lamb samosas and vegetable pakora to lamb chops, meat grills and salmon tikka cooked up on the barbecue. Expect, too, chicken jalfrezi, lamb balti, masala fish, chicken malai korma and a selection of biryani. Keep an eye out for pre-theatre menus and special lunch offers.

Went there Monday early Monday evening and arrived to find the restaurant bereft of customers, which was a bit concerning.  I shouldn't have worried as the Indian/Pakistiani food was delicious and the staff charming. (The restaurant make all their meals from scratch, even the naan bread, which is the best I have tasted.) The pre-theatre menu at 2 courses for £9.95 or 3 courses for £12.95 was amazing value.  The decor is a little plain - more like a cafe - but it is comfortable and clean.  There is an outside area which will be lovely to sit in on warm, summer days (and when the building work opposite is finished).  A very good value, central restaurant, serving excellent food just at the back of Leicester Square itself.

I went there in 2015 with two friends who live in London. They both said it was the best Pakistani food they have ever had. and I would 100% agree. Food was amazing. Don't worry about the décor, it plainly decorated but who cares when the food is great!


Went after buying 4 for £16 cocktail deal through timeout expecting it to be a cocktail bar

It's actually a rather badly decorated Indian restaurant 
However staff were friendly and we were seated straight away
There was a theatre menu and as we were going to see made in Dagenham they allowed us to do that!
So we ended up paying £10 for a starter and main each and shared them all
Starters were a bit weird; we went for paneer tikka and a poppadum salad which were both nice but nothing amazing 
Then saag gosht and chicken tikka masala which were both really good!
Cocktails were average! Very sweet tasting and not what I expected because of the time out offer
Overall an odd experience. Food was good though so I would go again if I fancied a curry and couldn't get in to dishoom!

I have been wanting to go to Salt' n Pepper for some time and was lucky enough to go last week. The food was excellent however we did order too much! I highly recommend the bread basket as it was nice to try new breads rather than just plain naan. Salt' n Pepper provided excellent service by ensuring that we were happy and satisfied with the food and drinks etc. I am looking forward to going again.
