Pizza Express- Quality takes time...
Member Name: cooketsc
Advantages: Quality of Pizza, price
Pizza Express is far and away my favourite restaurant. For numerous reasons I would go there in front of most restaurants, and most certainly before I went to Pizza Hut.
~~~ The Pizzas themselves are delicious. I have never had a duff one, no matter which shop I'm in, be it Kensington, Newbury or even Yeovil, the pizzas always come out the same. Pollo ad astra gets my taste buds going before it even arrives.
~~~ The membership deals are great. I pay about £25 a year to be a member, but get over £60 worth of vouchers, sometimes meal and drink vouchers, and other times £10 vouchers. They even send you one on your birthday! There is also a loyalty card which I recommend, in which when you get to 10 pizzas they give you a £10 voucher.
~~~ Get them at home: I can go to Tesco or Waitrose and buy a cheap pizza, stick it in the oven, and enjoy a quality pizza on my sofa. No worries.
~~ They are certainly not express however, which is a good thing, seeing as quality always takes time. I think the name might represent fast food and it should be changed.
~~~ Price: They are actually cheaper than Pizza hut on the whole, and £7.50 for a pizza is pretty good going.
To be honest, you have to trust somewhere to keep going back, and I definitely trust Pizza Express.
Summary: Go give it a try!
