Great food funny location

Good simple Viet food. The interior is like wise simple and not really Asien, wich actually gives the place an Asien kind of feeling, the kind of random wannabe western style. The prices are the only thing reminding you that you are in a french-gallery-fine-area.

I recall this place not because of food (which must have been quite ok, buy the way) but because sweltering heat we had to bear during the Paris heat wave this summer not the air-conditioner which didn't work. Not their fault obviously, but the experience was hellish.

We really wanted to like this little restaurant not far from Franklin D. Roosevelt metro. But prices and false authenticity will keep us away in the future. Having dined in Saigon, Hanoi and SE Asia, we know Vietnamese cuisine and what was served is not the real deal. By the way, we saw just one Asian customer during the busy... More

Could not tell it's a Vietnamese/ Asian restaurant from the outside. It's very nice, good spot in between shopping. Will definitely come again for sure!

Food not bed and service was okay.,Just not real Vietnamese food and not worth the money. We were sit the table next to the toilet , every time when someone open the toilet door will hit our chair. ( the chair is disgusting and uncomfortable)This place is tiny and low ceiling. No English menu.

We needed a brief respite from the rich French food. Don't get me wrong - we love it. But tonight we wanted to try something different in Paris. We decided to explore some asian fusion restaurants. We scored...big! Le Petit was great from top to bottom. Service - friendly/warm (server helped us through the menu without any hesitation). Food -... More

We are really like Vietnamese food and looked forward to recent visit to Paris partly because of the many Vietnamese choices. We arrived at 8 on Monday and were the only patrons. We sat at one of the characteristically tiny Paris tables next to the bathroom. Did not matter because only one other couple arrived during the hour. We did... More

I was in Paris on a business trip and after a long day of meetings and an hour of rushed shopping I used Tripadvisor to locate a nice small restaurant close to my hotel. I chose this one and I couldn't find a better place. The cocktails are amazing, both the guy behind the bar and the girl taking the... More

We got very good service in a cozy setting! My wife had caramelized chicken and I enjoyed curry chicken with sticky rice.
