often passed this little restaurant but never went in - but this time I was tired , in search of something light but tasty and my feet hurt so did not want to walk far from the hotel. The soup and steamed chicken, basil and coconut was delicious- light, tasty with an very gracious service ( sometimes a women alone... More

This isn't haute cuisine a la Vietnamese or Cambodian, but simply an exotic place to go for a quickly served, quickly paid lunch, in a kind of different atmosphere on a street near all the Ministries offices. Why expect more from this kind of place. It is what it is: simple, well prepared food. We didn't find it too salty... More

Stopped by this restaurant while headed to the Rodin Museum. Overall the visit was quite disappointing and we wish we had chosen one of the other nearby restaurants. While nothing was horrible the food was just okay. The only thing we would order again was a chicken soup served as a starter course. Some of the least welcoming service we... More

If you don't mind throwing your money away, then go to this place. Some of the dishes were comparable to NYC, and some were just salty; Maybe different countries have different price standards, but my impression of Vietnamese cruisine should not be this pricey unless you want the five-star atomosphere and service . This restaurant has neither. They would charge... More

The owners are from Vietnam and the cook as well but he's married to a Thai so she influences his cooking and my favorite is their Green papaya salad. The portions are small (for American standards) but the food is always good and it's a nice hole in the wall type of restaurant, don't expect stylish service or perfectly need... More

One of my favorite restaurants in the whole world. It's tiny and a little cramped--and the owner took perhaps too much interest in my girlfriend--but the food here is simply amazing.

Decided to go here based on majority of good reviews. Owner let us in early (7:40 pm), tables were mostly full by 8:15 on a Tuesday. Atmosphere was very cozy and had a SE Asian feel. Owner's English was good. Food was excellent! Nicely prepared and very tasty. House wine was very drinkable. Prices were modest by central Paris standards,... More

The food was decent; however, I paid almost three times of what I got from other restaurants in Paris for very small portion. We tried to order shrimp rolls and beef pho ( rice noodle soup), we could not find those on the menu, the owner said these are specials and he could still make those. We did not ask... More
