Restaurant recommendation in London Piccadilly?

Any recommendation on where to have dinner in the area?

We are looking to stay local as we will probably be tired that evening and will probably eat on the earlier side then later. We are traveling with a 12 and 10 year and want a casual place that we can get served at, not picking up sandwiches at pret manger, etc

We don't want to dine at the hotel
By the way , if it makes a difference the address of the hotel is 21 Piccadilly

Any suggestions?

I think there's a Wagamama in that area. Let me look up their locations. Most kids like noodles.

I may get slammed for this, but the kids would probably appreciate the fact that there is a Hard Rock Cafe, a Planet Hollywood, an Ed's Easy Diner, and a Rainforest Cafe all in easy walking distance from your hotel (The Meridien).
(I'm not mentioning TGI Fridays which should be avoided at all costs).

Much more upscale but still pretty casual is the Wolseley, almost right across the street.

Thanks for the quick replies

TGIF is definitely out
Rainforest is also out as we have one near us and my husband isn't fond of it
Hard Rock Cafe may be a good option even though we have one in NYC we do like to visit them in other countries

Wagamama is definitely an option

The others sound good, thanks

We've enjoyed the pizza/Italian at Strada, which is on New Burlington and Regent, a few blocks north of Picadilly. We had delicious pizza and pasta, salads and beer/wine. It's my husband's favorite place in that area.

We've also had great breakfasts at the Wolseley, but it's not inexpensive. We ate there on our arrival day while we were waiting for our hotel to have a room ready - wonderful way to relax and regroup after the all night flight.

We really enjoy the Japanese restaurant Kiku on Half Moon Street. Very good food, friendly service, relaxed, modern atmosphere. Excellent sushi, of course, but a wide range of cooked food including simple dishes that would appeal to your kids if they're picky (chicken teriyaki, tempura, etc.). They open for dinner at 6 pm and it's fine to eat on the early side. They are popular and for a week-end dinner (Th, Fr, Sa), reservations are probably a good idea.
