It wasn't really that hard for this to be my favourite restaurant in Wycombe, although I was impressed with the selection of restaurants that Wycombe had to offer.
You'd be surprised to know that Wycombe is equipped with a Pizza Hut, Subway, KFC, Burger King, McDonalds, Peppers, Noodlehouse, two Chinese buffet places, Countless Kabab Joints, and many coffee shops. As you can imagine, there is not much else in wycombe......every other building is a food joint. Oh well it works for me! :)
Anyways, Peppers was the classiest restaurant besides a new buffect chinese place. It had a lovely setting and yummy food. The entrees averaged 8 pounds.
The new buffet chinese restaurant was 14 pounds and was a high end place serving quality foods. There was another chinese for 3 pounds that served gross food......not my first choice.
Favorite Dish: My favourite dish would have to be the Naan bread. Yum
This is a review of a culinary experience you, sadly, no longer enjoy ... However, it remains a tale which must told! The BEST food to be found in Wycombe when I lived there (2002) was to be found on a Saturday night in the little cobbled centre of town - from a kebab van run by a genial Turkish gent named Denis. His pitta and chips (a phenomenon yet to hit the streets of Australia) was second to none, especially with a little salt and vinegar. Den offered a smile and lollipop to all customers and was always ready with a quip or a discount for any weary weekend (or weeknight) pub-goer. Unfortunately his rival van-man (strategically parked opposite Den's) 'Hussain's Kebabs' put good old Den out of business ... but that is another story ...
Favorite Dish: Pitta and chips!

The UK has fantastic Indian food and in every town, village or city you are guaranteed to be able to find a yummy curry and samosa. In Wycombe, 'Peppers' offers a quality Indian eating experience. The service is typically brusque, but the food more than makes up for a little British surliness. The food here is fresh, and very tasty and many vegetarian options are available. I especially liked the fact you can see the kitchen and the chef clearly.
Favorite Dish: Mmmm all the veggie stuff is great, I particurlarly liked the naan though ...
'Noodle Bar' is a great little restaurant in an otherwise foodie-challenged town. Although there are other Chinese restaurants in Wycombe, Noodle Bar is exceptional because of its prompt and FRIENDLY (rare in the UK!) servcice. The food is light and cheap and offers a range of veggie meals. I especially like the communal eating arrangements and menu/placemats. Free fortune cookeis are a cute added bonus. My one 'beef' with the ' Bar is its location - next to possibly the seediest pub in Wycombe - the Anchor - which leads to some shady loiterers nearby (the last time I visited a 'right slapper' heckled my haircut!).
This restaurant was located very close to where I was working and after a long day we didn't feel like travelling a lot of the time. Consequently Ask became a very popular place with me and my colleagues and at one stage I didn't even need to look at the menu.
The food is pretty good - very similar to Pizza Express actually.
Favorite Dish: They do a good tomato and buffalo mozzarella salad to start with and the Capricciosa pizzas are quite tasty.
