2 for 1 at Munchkins

Since it opened in 1987, Munchkins has remained one of the best hidden gems for those looking for relaxing café-style restaurants in London. They serve a wide selection of British classics, all in generous helpings. But while they’re a good pick for tourists looking for a pit-stop after visiting the British Museum across the road, they’re perfect for locals seeking a fuss-free, value for money meal with the kids.

As London restaurants go, it doesn’t get more central than Munchkins. Visitors to the bustling city will find the eatery just a tube ride to Holborn or Goodge Street and a quick four-minute walk away. As it’s located in Bloomsbury, locals will find it a welcome spot to grab a bite after strolling around the area’s many parks.

Easily one of the quirkiest places to eat in London, Munchkins has become a favourite spot for many travellers. Guests will notice vintage Coca Cola memorabilia and of course, a Wizard of Oz-themed yellow brick floor. Its customers come from all over the world and their menus are even translated into Japanese, Russian, Mandarin, Korean, Spanish, French, Italian and Portuguese.

Fans of traditional British restaurants will feel right at home with Munchkin’s classics such as jacket potatoes, shepherd’s pie and fish and chips. While those looking for something a little more exotic can indulge in the likes of moussaka, chicken kiev and chili con carne. They’ve got pudding sorted too with carrot cake, ice cream and other treats.

For a taste of homecooked British favourites, a meal at Munchkins should tick all the right boxes. Any occasion will be even more of a treat for tastecard members who can look forward to exclusive restaurant savings when they call to book ahead and present their cards upon arrival. It’s a good chance to treat themselves to another round, dessert or a starter.

    We ordered fish and chips, and it was okay. The fish was heavily battered and reminded me of a deep fried frozen fish fillet. The fish was okay, but a little mushy. However, it wasn't bad and the chips were nice too. I am happy I went with the taste card, it was worth going to have something different from the usual. "

    No kids menu so my daughters meal was very expensive. Also I was shocked how expensive the meal was but my husband gave them a tip anyway. Only after did I find out that 10% had been added to the bill without my knowledge so they got 2 tips out of us "

    If you want to go and eat Mcdonalds style I recomend this 'restaurant' . Pieces of meat under the table, frozen chips, dirty tables.. they haven't heard about the tastecard just one of them who actually has one, but they didn't know that there is electronic card as well, so it took 5 minutes explaining them,...Don't ask for an Oyster Stout , they don't know what is it..

    Ate last night, 18th November

    Service was prompt and restaurant good and clean

    Menu had an extremely large choice, and I think they would struggle to do all of this well

    We had fish and chips, which was below average quality. It was served nicely, but the quality of the fish and batter was low - tasted mass produced and the same as you'd buy from a well known frozen food company, and a little overcooked, the salad was poor quality, and the chips were ok.

    The taste card made this less expensive, but I would not recommend a repeat visit

    I was not asked if I enjoyed my meal, or I would have shared this yesterday "
