Flack: (Saving) on expenses - The Gay Hussar, Soho, London, W1

- What is it good for?

The Gay Hussar has garnered a formidable reputation with people of power for more than 50 years. Politicians, entertainers and journalists have flocked to it to sample Hungarian specialities before a requisite Tokaji to finish. This is a restaurant where not only you and your clients will feel comfortable, but is somewhere you will want to return to with friends and colleagues.

- Signature dish?

Goulash; it is the best outside of Hungary itself.

- Who's the boss?

Corus Hotels is the owner. It also manages the equally charming sister restaurant Elena's L'Etoile.

- Tips please?

Be adventurous and taste the chilled wild cherry soup.

- What's the damage?

For a rather tasty £18.50, you can enjoy the delectable lunch menu. With its dining club, you will get 20 per cent off your bill each time, and after ten visits, you are rewarded with a bottle of champagne.

The Gay Hussar, 2 Greek Street, London, W1D 4NB. 020 7437 0973.
