Best restaurants under 15GBP/meal?

Could you please recommend any restaurants (preferably 1st tube zone) with prices of at most 15 pounds per meal? It'd be the best if they are somehow unusual but I don't count on it too much since I saw how highly the unusuality in London is priced (10 pounds for a burger at Sticky Fingers? Come on..). I know that my budget isn't splurge but I don't think it's low, either. However, I couldn't find anything either interesting or with just tasty food. Could you recommend something?

Apart from the ubiquitous international fast food chains, there's plenty of places where you can get a good cheap meal. Click on the Restaurants tab on the left, and tick the Cheap Eats box under dining options, for some TP recommendations.

If you are craving for a decent burger, try Gourmet Burget Kitchen;

Chains like Masala Zone and Wagamama are always a good bet;

What do you want for your £15? 3 courses or just a main and a drink? A tenner for a burger is commonplace, I'd expect to pay around £8-10 for a pizza plus £4-5 for a glass of wine.

Use vouchers for chain restaurants here moneysavingexpert.com/deals/cheap-restaurant… or here vouchercodes.co.uk/restaurant-vouchers.html…

Or look at special offers here http://www.toptable.com/location/content/?l=7

Lots of chains - carluccio's, Nando's, Wagamama, GBK, Leon. Lots of pubs

and toptable is good for offers (2 courses for £10-15 sort of thing) plus the Evening Standard has run a summer restaurant promotion most years so worth checking out for when you are travelling.

Also get a copy of TIme Out's cheap eats.

Sticky fingers is a tourist trap (along with places like Hard Rock cafe and others) aimed at bridge and tunnellers as far as I can make out.

Sticky Fingers is on the corner of the most expensive residential street in the UK. It's not exactly your normal High St. restaurant.

You would be better off buying Time Out's book, and carry it with you so you don't stumble into Sticky Finger-type places by accident.

Oh, thank you very much for all the replies! Will certainly look at all those links!

fleur1104 - of course three courses would be great but if it's too little for such a meal, one with a drink would do if I could eat something considerably better then.

peterscot - I have National Geographic Traveler: London so I don't think Time Out's mandatory.. It features some restaurant too.

NG is not a source I would use for a city like London. TO is much better (and not just for restaurants).

Time Out also has an online resource, they send me emails every so often and have offers and cheap restaurant tips. At least take a look at them online, I find their recommendations reliable for the most part. I rarely spend more than £15 on a meal in London, Nando's, Wagamama, Strada and Masala Zone are good chains with lots of different outlets, I also like Stockpot and West End Kitchen which do set price meals for well under £15, both of which are on Panton Street near Leicester Square (Stockpot does have other locations as well) and have to eat fish and chips at least once a trip, last time I tried Golden Hind and the Laughing Halibut. Tas is another option, Turkish, also with multiple locations.

You won't find food here that you'll want to write home about but as far as value for money goes the Stockpot restaurants are hard to beat.
