    Many items are GF and clearly shown on menu. Menu has a disclaimer regarding cross contamination- so beware. Tasty and cost effective.

    Excellent quick lunch. I had the chicken peanut satay box with coleslaw and it was excellent. It was refreshing to have so many GF options to pick from. There was even an assortment of bars and other sweets.

    Good healthy fast food in Kings Cross Station. Allergens (incl gluten) clearly listed, but it’s fast food so I can’t be sure on the cross contamination, but I’ve eaten here several times with no reaction.

    You know what? This is going to be my fallback restaurant in London. This fast food is fresh, with many gluten-free and vegetarian options to choose from. It's popular, so there are lines during the lunch period. There is limited seating. The service is very pleasant and kind of fun. Yeah, it's not the chippy fast food London experience, but it's definitely the new London fast food experience. As far as the food itself goes, it's above average. There are loads of veg I what I had, and it wasn't too salty. While I wouldn't write home Bout it unto itself, I will definitely tell you about it, and will let anyone who is gf know about it. Since the chain is all over the place, it's easy to fall back on it.

    I’ve eaten in Leon many times, it’s fast food but healthy with good choices and all marked on the menu, I love to fly through Heathrow terminal 2 so I can lunch in Leon and take one back to Zurich for dinner, I also take a few brownies for the people I work with.

    Best quality fast casual food! Pretty large eat-in area too. Nearly all allergens are marked on the menus and menu board. Plenty of GF/DF, vegetarian and vegan options, and so delicious! I got the Chicken Satay Hot Box which included brown rice and a kale/pea salad and excellent DF sauce. Optional GF seasoned waffle fries were delicious too! Healthier fountain drinks, kombucha, and coffee. I went for lunch but they serve interesting breakfasts too. So good!!!

    Everything was well labeled. I got the porridge and a gf cupcake. I think they get some of their pastries from Rise Bakery so that’s probably where it was from. It was great.

    I’ve eaten at other Leon’s, but felt a little nervous at this one. At this one I was advised to stick with a salad (which was yummy!) and not get a rice bowl. Not sure if this location operates any differently, but Maybe they were just trying to cover themselves, because it’s obviously not a dedicated facility. Great food still though!

    This is an awesome little lunch-y spot with healthy fast food, all GF and V menu items clearly marked on the wall menu. Lots of options... Meatless meatballs, chicken satay, burgers and GF fries, yummy meal “boxes” with rice and fresh slaw and salads. Also great coffee, GF desserts (my celiac kids were thrilled), super quick service and pleasant eating area. Would come again in a flash if back in the area!

    Very friendly and helpful staff as I needed dairy free as well. I loved the Moroccan meatballs and they gave me some vegan aioli on the side to try. My husband had the Thai green chicken curry and liked his as well. We had it takeaway and walked over to Kensington garden to eat as it was a lovely day and it was still hot when we found a bench. Lots of things to try there so we’ll go again. Very helpful staff.

    Leon’s have a fast food restaurant in the train station part of the airport. Nice place to get a quick bite of more healthy fast food.

    This is a great fast food restaurant with many gluten free options. It was recommended to me by an airport employee and I was so happy to find a place I could feel safe in eating. We were there for a late dinner after we missed our connecting flight.

    Not very good.. I got a chicken box and cold brew and the rice is crunchy and the chicken was not accurately depicted in the menu photo.. not good. The cold brew had a bunch of coffee grounds in the bottom. Not pleasant

    Fast food chain that you will see all over London. Great for grabbing something quickly or later at night. They label everything that's gf/df and even have a brownie option for dessert! The fries are gf and they have salad and hot box options!

    Leon is a natural foods takeaway shop by the south Kensington metro. The menu has 'gf' markings on the items available without gluten. I enjoyed the meatballs in sauce over rice and my non-gf hubby liked his lamb wrap. I also loved the gf lemon drizzle dessert. The Kale salad was so-so, as Kale really needs to sit in the dressing for an hour to break down its bitterness, not served raw. I will try to upload a photo. We will def be back!

    This is GF heaven! My 10 yr old daughter who is celiac absolutely loved this chain that we found right near our hotel. There locations all over London with dozens of GF choices (she loved the Moroccan meatballs) and GF fries and desserts too. We visited the S. Kensington and West End locations also by just running across them in our travels to sites. She would spot a Leon and get so excited we just had to take her to get something. Always delicious, reliable and safe service. Wish they would open outlets in the States!

    Ordered a GF meal, a meatball with rice. It looked delicious but sadly I had an immediate reaction. Warning to the super sensitive!

    Didn't get to eat at all or even enter because one person in our group had tennis shoes. Attire is listed as casual on Facebook and we were even dressed nice aside from the one pair of shoes. Hostess was incredibly rude and menu items extremely pricy. Save your time and money and go elsewhere.
