    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 :)

    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: http://scofflondon.com/restaurants/east-street-restaurant-w1/

    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)

    They do an express menu 12-7pm daily - £7.95 for 2 courses. Corn fritters and Daging Lembu Goreng are delicious! http://www.eaststreetrestaurant.com/assets/pdf/MENU-express.pdf

    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! 👍

    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!

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

    Really nice place! I just had a meal costing 9 pounds with noodles and fresh rice rolls. Both really tasty! I will definitely come again..

    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.

    Nothing too fancy, but a great place to try something new. Reasonable prices for central and a quirky, friendly atmosphere

    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

    Food is tasty, but not mind blowing. Portions are fairly small. Funky interior and friendly staff. Try the Tofu stir fry

    Caution: all the chicken is halal so if ethical meat sources concern you then choose wisely.

    They have the two course sign at the front of the shop on a saturday afternoon. However, it's not actually available over the weekend.

    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

    Delicious food. Unbelievably slow service, unfortunately. (We waited a full 15 minutes from the time we asked for the bill until we were able to pay)

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

    Khao Toi was hot but at £8:95 it needs a bigger portion and a better depth of flavour.

    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!
