Upscale Thai in Paris

After 10 days of wonderful continental cuisine, my family was ready for Asian spice and preparations. Being from the wes coast of the U.S., we are accustomed to Thai To restaurants on every corner in most cities.

Amazingly authentic Thai food in a wonderfully decorated space. Excellent service as well. Romantic corners, a waterfall, and yes, all the flowers are real

Had a lovely dinner whilst feeling like in the tropics. Had the lamb mussaman and it was as close to Thai as can be. The green curry is a tad sweet. Need a reservation for this place as it tends to fill up even on the Monday night! Overall a pleasant experience although one should go to Thailand to really... More

Very satisfied of this restaurant, we took a brunch on Sunday morning and tested everything we could. The classic meals are well prepared, surrounded by other dishes I had never seen before. If you are not ready to try new food, I guess you will be disappointed... This place is even more interesting when you go with a vegetarian (my... More

Beautiful dining room. Great welcome and a goodbye flower when you leave. We enjoyed the presentation of the food and the food itself.....but the service was okayish (quite distant....and never the same waitress).

This is the nicest Thai restaurant I have been to yet. The food was absolutely delicious. The lamb dish was the best lamb I have had. The cashew chicken was not only delicious but a display worthy of photographing. A nice place to round out your stay or celebrate something.

You will this you are eating in the middle of a tropical garden. The food is OK , but what is interesting and new is the atmosphere , the music , and waitresses wearing traditional dresses ... It's really expensive ! Thus don't go for the food itself but more for the moment you will spend there

The garden setting is very very nice. However the food is just ok. Considering how expensive it is I don't think it is worth the price.

I do not understand what everyone is raving about. My wife’s friend recommended this restaurant, telling us how great the food is. So we went with high expectations… However, if you like dull, ordinary everyday Thai food takeaway style prepared without any imagination, and have a fancy for chewing lemon grass, this is the place for you. Every second dish... More

Staying in Bastille / Oberkampf

Students and young professionals fill the busy bars around Bastille and Oberkampf. At Place de la Bastille, crowds flock to the Opéra Bastille in the evening and groups wait for coveted tickets during the day. Towards Republique, skateboarders practice their tricks while others chill out at the square. If you’re looking for late-night revelry, this is your neighborhood.
