  • Visitor Information

With a focus on seasonal, fresh and natural food, Leon is a hugely popular chain which does the seemingly impossible - it makes fast food healthy. Like McDonalds, the food is served from chutes and comes quickly, unlike certain burger chains you can get things like kale and peanut salad and line caught cod fish finger wrap made with natural ingredients, good fats and good carbs. Everything is clearly labelled so whether you're following a gluten free or vegan diet you can see, at a glance which dishes are for you. This store on Shaftesbury Avenue, in the heart of the West End, is somewhat different to all the other Leon restaurants, it opens in February 2017 with the search for staff who are also hoping to appear on the West End stage so you may well get a show tune with your grilled halloumi wrap.
