Pizza Express remains a hugely popular bedrock of casual eating. Its popularity is testimony to the fact that across the country, they have restaurants where you will always be guaranteed a good nosh, with children's tastes being well catered for.
Pizza Express has gone even more Roman, and following the success of that particular example of listening to their public have introduced Romana pizzas, including the scorching Etna and the hearty Siciliana.
These pizzas are now thinner, bigger and crispier, and if that sounds like a marketing line, it is. However, unlike many such lines, this one is true, and their quality is always consistent, though cleverly they have still managed to retain a homemade feel to their pizzas.
As an alternative to pizza, try their pollo pesto - cavatappi pasta with torn chicken breast, mushrooms, red onions and mozzarella in a creamy gruyere, parmesan and pesto sauce and finished with grana padano - or the niçoise salad with mixed leaves, yellowfin tuna, free range egg, green beans, potatoes and tomatoes with olives, anchovies, capers and house dressing.
Many of the big chains have come a long way, and Pizza Express is certainly amongst them. One of the first to be quoted on the Stock Exchange - in 1993 - Pizza Express is not a franchise operation and retains tight control through its own staff.
Their wine list - though short - contains some surprisingly good offerings, especially their intense Australian Chardonnay, and a big, full-bodied Merlot from Cusumano, Sicilia.

The very name conjures up the image of food from India - rich, unique, tantalising and a legacy that goes back to the days of the maharajas. The family owned Golden Curry restaurant takes pride in bringing you distinct flavours from recipes that have been passed down from one generation to another. The choices available are extensive in every sense of the word, from biryani and tandoori specialities, to curries, vegetables and bread.
For starters, you could have chicken chat, cucumber and tomato fried in ghee or the simpler Ayr biran, spiced fish, fried onions and green peppers. The succulent array of kebabs is both tempting and varied, with something to suit everyone. Ordering the main course is not difficult, as the options are some of the best in Indian cuisine. Do try the innovative tikka biryani or the good old mutton one, a traditional speciality that leaves a lingering taste and brings you back for more.
If you want to taste food grilled in the clay oven or the tandoor, order the mixed kebab grill, served with naan bread, tomato, lettuce and lemon. The juicy tandoori king prawns, spiced, marinated and skewed on charcoal, make another delightful option. Side orders like aloo gobi, an interesting combination of cauliflower and potatoes, or a delicious medley of sweet peas and cottage cheese enhance the enjoyment of an already tasty meal.
Golden Curry stands out from other Indian restaurants with sensible menu options like mild, medium and hot curries listed under separate headings, giving diners more variety to choose from. At almost twenty years old, the Golden Curry is one eatery that has left its mark on the very popular Indian cuisine scene. The restaurant promises to meet requests for unlisted dishes as well, a feature that presumably very few people would have need to avail themselves of, considering the variety on the menu.
