With its gaudy frontage, brightly coloured furniture, illuminated signs hanging from the ceiling and silent cartoon movies projected onto the wall, East Street looks like a Bangkok street café
transported to the outer reaches of Fitzrovia. As you’d expect, the place generates a lot of noise as staff whizz around with steaming bowls of noodles, one-plate rice dishes and all manner of
pan-Asian canteen goodies. Japan contributes edamame, yakitori and katsu curries, Korea offers bulgogi, Vietnam is represented by pho and shaking beef, and there are outings for generic satays,

Asian beers, a few exotic cocktails and a fistful of wines. Takeaways too.

All diet rules are MIA and you’re desperate for a quick cheap fix. It happens us all, and...

What I love about East Street is it’s cool, easy and cheap. It’s a no fuss sort of place that has awesome decor and good food.The food isn’t out of this world, amazing, but it is good. They use fresh ingredients and really just get the point. You want to go here when you want a good old catch up with friends and you don’t need to worry about cost, service, quality etc as its all there, express style...
