Cheap London Eats: The Sagar Restaurant Lunch Box

Cheap London Eats: The Sagar Restaurant Lunch Box

I’m a big fan of lunch boxes… especially the dirt cheap kind that you find in Indian restaurants, generally between the hours of 12pm-3pm.

Today I found myself back on Percy Street in the Bloomsbury area trying out the lunch box at a South Indian vegetarian restaurant called Sagar: it cost £3.50. I also bought a bottle of water from a nearby Tesco Express for 68 pence to wash it down with. A very, very cheap lunch!

The lunch box consisted of: boiled rice with mixed veg, two curries, raitha and bread. The boiled rice and veg was just the way I like it… tasty. One of the curries, the one that looks like vegetable soup… well it was a wee bit on the watery side, never the less it tasted good! The other curry was fairly tasty, it would have been so much better if there was real meat in it. The raitha was delicious, and the bread was not too bad.

For £3.50 I know I shouldn’t complain and I’m not going too – well not too much. The lunch box from Sagar would be great, instead of good, if there was more rice, more bread and the watery curry, was a wee bit less watery. Overall it was well worth the money… however there is no chance of me ever, no never, ever, becoming a vegetarian!

If you are ever in the area around Tottenham Court Road Station and feeling hungry, and only have a few quid in your pocket the Sagar Vegetarian Restaurant is worth checking out.  The near by Russell Square Gardens is a nice place for your alfresco lunch.
