Chow near the Victoria Line/Mayfair

We are visiting London for the first time in April. Unfortunately, Priceline put us on the South side of the Thames. The closest tube station is Vauxhall, about 1/2 mile away.
There seems to be a dirth of food right around our hotel (Chino Latino seems to be the only game in town).
After a day of touring, I don't want to have to navigate a tube or bus transfer. One night we will be at the Ceremony of the Keys and a friend has suggested drinks at the Dickens Inn or Draft House and dinner at Cafe Spice Namaste.
Beyond that, I am hoping to stay near the Victoria line. It seems that would put us mainly in the Mayfair area. Wild Honey seems to come recommended. Not interested in Automat (I can eat that at home). Burger and Lobster might be on the list. Bubbledogs also seems to have some hype, although I worry about no reservations at both places. Veeraswamy seems expensive and not well reviewed here (plus we are thinking of Cafe Spice Namaste one night). Golden Union for fish and chips?
Any help would be greatly appreciated. We eat anything, but prefer someone more casual places. (ie no ties required).
