Concise steak menu in an industrial-chic restaurant decorated with meat cleavers and aprons.- Google
People talk about popcorn, salted caramel, cocktail bar, creamed spinach and bar downstairs

Brilliant value and delicious food. Not the best steak I've ever had but at £10, you can't argue. The food is really very good and the vibe inside the restaurant is cool and laid back. The staff are all lovely as well. My only quibble is the non-booking stance but if it's a nice day and you're not starving it is definitely worth the wait. Failing that, head over on week night and you'll usually get seated straight away. Good first date option as you can do the whole chat bit in the queue and eat a lovely meal without going bankrupt.

Flat Iron doesn't have nearly enough space as they deserve. For its price, the steak they serve is fantastic. Even if it was more than £10, it would still be very good. The sides and sauces are also great, and the selection of beer they have is usually pretty great too. Unfortunately, the can is a bit uncomfortable, but to make up for it they have a dessert that's out of this world (but not on the menu). It's a salted caramel mousse, sprayed out of a whipped cream canister.

Another place that specialises in one thing....steak cooked impeccably. It's great restaurant with a simple menu. I'd highly advise you to also check out the bar downstairs if you have to wait, their old fashioneds are damn good.

Just go already. £10 steak is all they do, and it's something they do oh-so-very-well. What the steak size it makes up for in taste and quality. Go for the aubergine and creamed spinach sides. Both time's I've been the specials have been worth it too, so maybe share one and a steak between two friends for the best combo. Lack of reservations and the space is a bit crowded, so not a first-date venue, but great place to go off the cuff. Cocktails and donughts while you wait for a table are worth checking out!

Soho is full of restaurant that only sell one thing but do that thing really well, Flat Iron may be the best of these. I went at midday so it was easy to get a table, I sat down ordered a flat iron steak with some beef dripping chips and a glass of ginger beer. 6 minutes later the steak arrived with a menacing looking cleaver and some crunchy fries. The steak had the deep stiltonish flavour of properly hung beef, my cleaver cut through it like butter and I gobbled it all up mmmm. PS The waitress said that if you go there at night you sometimes have to wait up to 2 hours for a table.

The "Flat Iron" is a little known cut of beef taken from the shoulder of the cow. You are greeted with popcorn and a jug of tap water. The steak isn't huge, and it comes with a small side salad, in a cute little glass tumbler. Given the size of the steak you will need two sides - don't miss the roast aubergine (other sides available are beef dripping chips & market greens). Wine is quite reasonable and is served in 1/2 pint glasses. The béarnaise sauce is really fantastic. The cocktail bar/ waiting area downstairs is pretty cool too, serving delicious doughnuts. Tip: Don't nick the cleavers, however tempted you are!!
