Best Thai food ever

Like 777_Carla, Bien Bien was full so we proceeded next door. What a find. The host greeted us and even though it too was full but managed to make a table for two. The food, why Australian Thai restaurants can not make the food taste as good or have to "tone it down" for westerners, beats me. The... read more

Bien Bien was fully booked so we were directed to go next door to Bien Bien "next door" which shares the same kitchen. The restaurant is simple, no fancy works here. We ordered the traditional grilled beef salad which was, by all means, one of the best I ever tried. All that followed : soup, curry, sticky rice and fried... More

A little out of the way and small, but you will be rewarded with exciting your taste buds. Place is run by a family and another Thai restaurant 2 doors down is run by the same family. Enjoy. It is small, so make reservations to make sure you get a table.

This one of the best Thai restaurants that I have been to. The staff is friendly. It is highly recommended to reserve a table if you want to go at lunchtime as it is always full.

The Bien Bien restaurant was a welcome find after several dodgy pizzas and an alright Indian feed after several nights in Paris. Well priced and great flavour, all the things you expect in Thai food but the courteous efficient staff made the whole experience a pleasure instead of a chore. Well done, just a pity we didn't find this place... More

After chatting with our rental host, he recommended Bien Bien. He told us "it's my favourite local place for Thai. it's not fancy but it's delicious. The family is very nice. If Henry is there, tell him I say 'hi'." Our host was right! Bien Bien was great! Some of the best Thai dishes I've ever eaten and enjoyed. We... More

We discovered this restaurant through searching TA for 'reasonably' priced restaurants in the Grands Boulevard (theatre district) of Paris. The reviews seemed good, and we were able to book online easily directly through Trip Advisor. On arrival, the restaurant seemed quiet for a Saturday evening, but it quickly filled up, largely with locals. The waiter - Henry - was already... More

I'm french but live out of France. I discover this place in one of my random trip walking in Paris during a sabbatical year. Once discovered, I went once and again and again. After that I went with all of my children one by one, and with all the family together, with friends, without them. Now a day it is... More

We had a meal in this restaurant after good reviews on Tripadvisor. We managed to get a table without any problems even though some reviews say that it can get busy and waiting is expected. The menu had a lot for you to choose from and the service was great. We had a shrimp and ravioli and beef tom yum... More
