I only used this book for one or two recommendations while in London this summer. For those restaraunts I found the book was fair in its rating. The food was good and the prices weren't too bad. The only complaint I have about this book is that most of the establishments seem to be clustered in the Chelsea/Knightsbridge area. So if you've been out for a long day of sightseeing you may not find anything in the book in your area. It's the type of book you use to plan a meal ahead of time, and for that it works fine.
