Still the coolest vietnamese restaurant in Paris!

This place is a jewel: food is excellent, the decor is fantastic and attracts the parisian beautiful people, and the playlist always a surprise! No need for long sentences: it's all delicious and fun, run for it!!

I went to Le petit Centre du Monde to have dinner with several friends. The food was really good and the staff welcomed us in a very friendly way. Beyond this, the place is really quiet which is definately a strong asset compared to some other restaurant located in this very busy area (only a few steps away from the... More

Everything was perfect. I had a quick chat with the owner. He's a passionate dedicated cambodian food lover. A great place where everything is très très bon (a bit pricey though!)

This place is a great little spot close to the busy but always charming Champs Elysées ! I went there by chance after a long Christmas shopping day, and it appeared to be a great idea : the place is a cosy modern charming lounge with great atmosphere music, the waitress is absolutely lovely and beautiful, and the food is...

My favorite Asian in Paris, behind a discreet entrance you'll find one of the most comfortable and well designed restaurants this side of Paris - the friendly staff and cozy atmosphere just a walk away from Paris's busiest street make for a welcome and cozy break. The crowd is chilled and young, a lot of beautiful people and the occasional... More

My friends from the US were visiting me in Paris around Christmas season. As a Parisian, I wanted to show them the trendy & non touristy side of Paris...so I thought of trying this new place with them, which some other friends had recommended. The place is very unusual for an Asian restaurant in Paris! The decor inside was very... More

Went here after finding on location map. We had a platter to share to start - shrimp spring rolls, pork dumplings and chicken rolls. They were delicious! We then shared two of the beef dishes as mains. One came with small cubes of beef and a lime sauce and the other was big strips of beef - " tigre vietnamien."... More

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...

Staying in Champs-Elysees

Neighborhood Profile
Champs-Elysees
This area is characterized by its namesake avenue which extends northwest from the Louvre to the modern business district, punctuated by the iconic Arc de Triomphe. Grand embassies stand among impressive offices and presidential palaces; architecture from 19th century Universal Exhibitions, homes, art galleries, and 19th century streets designed by Baron Haussmann flank haute-couture boutiques. This neighborhood never rests, buzzing with visitors from around the world at all times of day and night, all within a stone's throw of the Seine.
