1. Size - it is pocket-sized - perfect to bring along on the trip with you without being bulky like many travel books. Can even fit in a purse to carry around with you on a daily basis while in London.
2. Organization - The book is divided into sections of London, complete with maps, so you will always be able to locate a restuarant near to where you are. The maps help you locate streets and restaurant locations, and there is also an index if you want to look up a restaurant by name, not location.
3. Authority - Time Out is a trusted source of info, and they provide excellent detailed reviews of each restaurant. Furthermore, their reviews are annonymous - they don't announce who they are at the restaurants they review, and they pay in full like any other customer.
4. Coupons! Need I say more? :) There are three 25% off vouchers to use at about 10 different specific restaurants.
I am an avid traveler and I have to say this is one of the best guides I have come across. It is organized, informational and compact. It is great for the budget traveler or for a regular traveler who wants to try some of the good, less expensive restaurants London has to offer. The only drawback is its limited use...the coupns expire in May 2006, and like any other dining guide, it is only useful if the establishments stay in business.
Like another reviewer said, you may not consider it cheap for US standards but it is for London. We tried restaurants in multiple locations (not just one neighbor hood) and always went out for a late lunch so we could catch lunch prices. My favorite places were Daquise (Polish), Sofra (Turkish - a mini chain with multiple locations), Belgo Centraal (Belgian - they have a great lunch menu special). It was worth the price to buy this book. It also took some of the stress off of us - we didn't wander the streets thinking 'where are we going to eat'.
A word of advice: Even if you're sticking to one or two neighborhoods, peruse the entire book. Some of the chains found across the city (including Pret a Manger and Yo! Sushi) are listed in a single section but actually have multiple locations.
