    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 :)

    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!

    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.

    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/

    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 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.

    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! 👍

    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.

    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)

    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

    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

    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!

    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.

    Simply excellent. Great setting (mimicking Asian street scenes), friendly staff, fast service and wonderful food...

    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..

    LOVE AN EAST STREET. Menu changes quite often. Go for a lunch dish. Great price and loads of good food. Great staff too!

    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!

    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)

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

    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.

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

    Excellent value Asian street food. Great ambience and range of food. All cooked fresh in front of you. Highly recommended!

    It can be a good choice! The foods are OK, nothing special or above average. But the interior design is really something 🙃

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

    Not great! Food was average, service was average to poor. Waiter had dirty finger nails which was off putting when he served the food.

    Good food, big selection of dishes from across south east Asia. The staff are quite unfriendly though...

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

    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

    I had the Com Hué with gyoza in their meal deal (before 7pm). Delicious, thoroughly enjoyed it

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

    Good value multi Asian chain, main courses green curry and pad Thai were good, avoid deserts

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

    Not really authentic Asian food, but then this is central London. Interesting audio in the toilets though.

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

    Funky decor, but for the price the food needs to be more authentic and substantial.

    A great mix of Asian food from Pho to Katsu. Caters for vegans and vegetarians!

    Well overpriced for what it is. Avoid their lunch takeaways if you are hungry, portions are tiny!

    Surprisingly good. Better than the competition e.g. wagamama, tuk cho
