Le Pain Quotidien, Soho

Just popped here for lunch with an old work colleague as she fancied something light. We both opted for the warm chorizo and prawn salad. She had a couple of glasses of wine, I had a nice bottle of wheat beer and a coffee. The bill came to just under £50 which I thought was going some based on what we had to eat. The Chorizo was nice enough but the prawns were all mushy, I feel pretty full but I do feel somewhat fleeced. The room is nice and buzzy, it was full when I arrived and when we left. The service was very good, the waitress was friendly and we got our order in easily. I certainly feel less bad about the service charge than paying for the food. I would not go back in a hurry as their are better places to go in the West End. I am a bit surprised by the success of Le Pain Quotidien as the food is hardly revolutionary and it isn't cheap!
