Oriental Canteen: Cheap and Fast

If you happen to be around South Kensington and need somewhere to grab a bite that is fast and cheap, there aren't many choices around.

A group of us were there recently for the Pan-Asian Film Festival and with only a 30 minute break to the next film, we walked around hurriedly looking for a place. A short walk later, we spied Oriental Canteen which I've been once when I first arrived in London.

In we went as there was a table large enough to fit us all. The dishes averages around £5 and the place comprises mainly of students.

The food was decent enough, tasty and quick. Sometimes you just want a quick bite and I found mine.

Will I recommend: Yes, when you're looking for a quick bite
Will I come back: Yes
Have I had better: Yes

  1. Hehe, I used to eat there every week and then got tired of it! But it's very good for the area and I should return soon!

  2. Is this the place right by South Ken tube? I've always wondered about it - may give it a whirl if I'm in the area.

  3. Su-Lin: Wow..every week. Agree is definitely good for the area and fast too!

    Mr Noodles: Yes, is the one next to South Ken tube. It's not the best but is decent and in a limited choice area like South Ken, definitely a good option.
