    A great place to for a quick, tasty and cheap lunch! The meal deal is great value for money and the chicken satay is delicious here! Friendly staff make you feel welcome. Great for a quick bite!

    The variety and choice on the asiatic cuisine is quite interesting, it's cool how they sort the menu by country. Food is quite decent if you know what to pick. They have a lunch menu :)

    Great place! The decor plunged you in a honk kong style urban environment. Love it! Good food and reasonable prices. (Bookings available for big groups only)

    Pretty authentic. Good option if you want to mix and match between Thai, Malay etc. Have the Char Kway Teow. Full review on Scoff London:

    Interesting concept. Their menu has quite a variety of different Asian cuisines at good prices. The interiors are really cool. And they give 25% off you're a student! 👍

    They do an express menu 12-7pm daily - £7.95 for 2 courses. Corn fritters and Daging Lembu Goreng are delicious!

    New menu allows vegans to sway almost any meat on any dish with protein-rich tofu. Amazing

    The Bo Luc Lac was delicious. Love the decor. With the portion sizes were a bit bigger and the staff were a bit friendlier though. Still we will be back!

    Ginger creme brulee is to die for! Thick, hot ginger caramel and a cold confection beneath.

    I might not know how authentic but I love thinking of food as a pan-continent concept. This place gives you a nice view of Asia as a whole.

    A lot more interesting than Wagamama in terms of its menu and vibe. I was not expecting for authentic Asian food but I was impressed by what they served. Worth give it a go.

    Average food for a reasonable price but it's a good alternative for a quick meal around the area. Yaki Udon (pictured) was a little bland and oily. Good service.

    The Vietnamese Bo Luc Lac does not "lac" in taste. It's a wok-fried rump & oyster sauce number known as "shaking beef." Read more

    Interesting concept and decor, the way they have tried to recreate the feel of a hawker centre. The food is very average though - and if you've tasted the authentic stuff, very disappointing.

    The place is nice the menu looks good. I took a Pho and it was okay but not a proper Pho, and it's like a wagamama for East Asia look like, smell like but it's far from it

    Good atmosphere but hardly the most authentic of Asian restaurants. It isn't bad, but you could do better elsewhere.

    Nice decor and concept trying to go for the asian street food vibes. But food wise, far from it unfortunately. The laksa does not taste like laksa at all!

    Service is appalling. Had to ask for our order to be taken, for our empty plates to be taken away and they delivered the wrong food. We waited 40+ mins on a Monday night, it was not busy. Awful
