SquareMeal Review of PJ's Grill

The framed Nobby Clark photos of veteran showbiz celebs help to create just the right feel at this reliable theatreland fixture. Wood panelling, parquet floors & lots of mirrors set the stage for serviceable grills, steaks & pasta plus more exotic ‘specials’ such as Thai chicken curry or baked squid stuffed with chorizo & couscous. Elsewhere, the meaty charms of a 225g hamburger might appeal, or you could try a sea-bass spring roll with butternut-squash ratatouille & wasabi mayo, before sighing over Kahlua, Baileys & Oreo cheesecake. Sunday heralds brunch & a traditional roast, while a terrific-value theatre menu offers two courses for £11.95. The global wine list is equally wallet-friendly, with nearly all bottles sub-£30 & a decent choice by the glass. Service is friendly & usually efficient.

As a visitor to London I was unsure of where to book for a pre theatre meal on a recent visit to the Aldwych. I decided on PJ's after viewing their website, and I was not disappointed. The minute we stepped through the door we were greeted by a very friendly bar tender and were accommodated when we asked to be seated 30 minutes prior to our booking. Although the restaurant was very busy we were taken care of and food was served promptly without feeling like we were being rushed. As for the food, all I can say is that it was fantastic, the fillet steak was cooked to perfection, the food was fresh and of good quality. I would definitely recommend PJ's to anyone looking for a friendly, relaxed restaurant where you can expect to be served great food by lovely people. It was a real treat to eat in this restaurant.
