Cant recommend Birley's highly enough, you find the sandwich you want order it, they heat it if you ask and you leave. A quick easy transaction and the sandwiches are delicious. I highly recommend the Tuna melt :) I was at the Canary Wharf Birley's where the cater for the workers so no tables etc but for what i wanted it was great.

This was my favourite lunch spot on a recent business trip to London. Loved the sandwich and lentil soup options. A bit overpriced, but delicious food...

The whole experience is a real disappointment. From terrible customer service, to a huge bill. Food is fresh and made in front of you but portion sizes are small and the price is ridiculous. Salads are assembled as requested, but be warned, you pay per selection so prices quickly rise out of control. Staff are less than accommodating, when asking for something not on the menu or slightly off track, be prepared for rude remarks. Wont be going back.

I have no problem with the service at this place at all, but I do have a problem with paying £10 for a salad! You build your own salad up, starting with leaves (or pasta) and add in whatever you want...I thought i'd gone lean selecting just two slices of salmon and some veg... got to the till and was told that each slice of salmon was £2 !

The lady at the till was not at all surprised at my raised eyebrows at the cost - she quickly explained it was "because of the salmon" and explained it was detailed on the board, so obviously i'm not the only person to have said something!

At £10 for a salad, I don't think I will be going back. I'd rather sit in at a decent restaurant and most likely get charged less.
Birleys - sort your prices out!!!

Birleys Birleys Birleys, what on earth has happened to you? over 2 years ago you had the best sandwich and salad bar around, now you're over-priced, under-portioned and ripping people off, not to mention the abysmal customer service!

If you're on a diet and are trying to get rid of money before the tax-man catches up with you, this is your place! Building a salad comprises of picking either leaves or leaves and cous cous or pasta - this alone costs around £4.00. Impressively you can then add any veg (1 tiny teaspoon full) for around 75p, that's for roughly 4 halves of cherry tomatoes. For £1.50 you can add roughly 3x wafer strips of chicken 'breast'. All in all, building a salad which has the same ingredients as a pret, eat etc and tastes exactly the same will cost between £7-£10.

Sandwiches are awful!

Don't get me started on the coffee!

Stay away, stay very away!
