This is a find. Small, but on three levels. The Bobun is fantastic as is the Pho. I have to admit, I haven't tried anything else. These are just so good. You can stay and talk as long as you like. There is no pressure. Sometimes you need to hunt down the waitstaff when you finally decide to leave. The... More

I had the bad idea to book well in advance this Restaurante for New Year eve dinner. When I arrived, they didn't had the booking but they still managed to find me a place. The restaurant is quite small and if you end in the ground floor you will spend your whole meal facing the whole place parade to the... More

It's not bad, but expectations, based on the TA ratings, were much higher: the food is ok, the setting is intimate, but nothing exceptional, and 14 euros for a dessert is a bit too much, even for Paris. Eventually we have paid 50 euros each and nothing to remember...

We wanted to try this good rated restaurant of TripAdvisor but the experience was not that good. Staff was friendly but a little bit and very slow (we were their first clients of the evening). I ordered a standard menu with Pho soup and nems. My beloved the special dish of the day which was salmon and vegetables. Nems were... More

We visited on the high recomendations on tripadvisor, but unfortunatley the food was really quite average. Not sure what the fuss is all about. We had the Tiger Beef, the Shrimp with Vegetables and the Pho, and all were below par for your local neighborhood shop, and not what you'd expect for Paris, and for the price (even factoring in...

We were looking for something different near the Champs Elysees and this cosy Vietnamese restaurant fit the bill. We asked to modify some of the dishes to make them vegetarian and our server Dimitry and the family-run kitchen took great pleasure in accommodating us with many helpful suggestions. We enjoyed the entire experience.

We found this on Trip Advisor while walking along the Champs Elysee. It was soooo good. The service was excelent. Everyone was so nice. And the food was just to die for. Appetizer was lamb spring rolls, then Lamb Pho, and or dessert, warm tapioca in coconut milk and banana- very sweet but delicious.

After consuming far too much amazing bread and butter I thought it was time to have some rice instead..turned to Trip Advisor, and found this great little Vietnamese place. The Food: Tom Yum Kung sound is the best soup I have EVER had. That's a pretty bold statement, but it's true. I ordered the Shrimp Spring Rolls but I now... More

Loved their fried spring rolls and their "Tiger" Beef plate. The staff spoke English and was very friendly. The decor of the restaurant was very chic and welcoming.
