“Friendly Staff and Good Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 28, 2013

As a pan-asia restaurant, a chain restaurant, I have to say their menu is smartly designed and the food are nicely cooked. The main dishes and desserts are better than appetizers! Keep the stomach for something sweet is advisor. Good portion for rice/ noodle dishes and the curry smells nice.
I would not say it's perfect (as it's cooked by local rather than Asian), but it's good enough for a nights out. LUNCH HALF PRICE!!!
Vietnamese Coffee is very nice. A must try!

“Great atmosphere, excellent food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 25, 2013

Really central location. The service was a little shoddy - the gentlemen serving us were not especially attentive and didn't seem that practiced in serving customers. The food was excellent though - we all loved our meals and would definitely go back for more. Really reasonably priced. Very busy restaurant with a lovely atmosphere, not cramped at all.

“Great find close to London Universities”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 24, 2013

This is a great little find, the food is tasty and served quickly and they have a wide range of beer to quench your thirst. The service is quick and the menu is comprehensive. The portions are a good size and students get 25% off the bill! fantastic.

“A GREAT SURPRISE”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 24, 2013

we had dinner here last night, walked past and looked in the window at the menu which seemed to have things on that we like. Very informal interior, extremely efficient service from Julian. The food was very good - a mixed starter of summer rolls, battered prawns and various tasty bites followed by an Indonesian beef curry and Prawn stir fry.
When the bill came the waiter told us he had charged us for a bottle of wine rather than our four glasses as it would be cheaper. Really nice place and we would definitely return!

“Really good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 28, 2013

This place has a nice atmosphere, pretty good staff and good portions. Perhaps it's not the most authentic pan-Asian street food but what is when it's in Europe? I had the Singapore lakhsa and I was impressed. It's not too badly priced and is in a good location so overall I'd recommend it and look forward to visiting again soon!
