The food here is always good and there's lots of it. The service has been good when I've been there. There's a lot of activity so its not a romantic restaurant, but that's part of the fun. The music is good and its a good chance to see the latest videos. Birthdays are very special at Radio Cafe. A Huge fuss is made of the birthday person. The menus used to come in cd covers which was fun, but last time they weren't like that. I think its the best of that sort of chain group.
As I live in the centre of London I am used to paying a little more for services than the rest of the country, although I usually like a small amount of quality and customer service for my money. The Capital Radio Restaurant gave me neither. The restaurant opens after 11am and is situated in the middle of Leicester Square. The location is one of the reasons that the prices are as they are, (around £7.00 for a burger) but there is no excuse for employing staff who are not even capable of answering a simple question, or bringing you a drink in less than half an hour. I took some friends of mine there for lunch a couple of months ago, and from the moment we walked in the door it was a disaster. It was not busy, only three of the tables being occupied, but we were still left waiting for our order to be delivered for nearly an hour. We asked if we could smoke, and was given an ashtray, only to be told five minuets later that we could not smoke in the part of the restaurant that we were sitting in. No Problem, we asked if we could move tables, to be greeted by blank faces from staff who spoke very poor English. When our food eventually arrived, the portions were adequate, but the quality of the food or the cooking did not warrant the price we paid. We didn't even get to see a DJ in the booth that is in the middle of the restaurant. There are many theme restaurants in central London now, and I would advise people to try one of the others.
