great Paris meal

staying in rue mons-censis we had a short walk to this restaurant. While service was slow...usual clientele seemed to get preference we enjoyed the meal. Of particular we loved the Tom Yum soup....incredibly wonderful....like eating silk.

Subdued lighting suitable for a romantic dinner. Need to reserve unless it is the summer season 15/7-30/8 when all the locals have fled the city. Good selection of authentic dishes. Nice unobtrusive background music. Tasty food well presented. Rafine. A good address. Open every evening. Recommended.

A relatively pricey restaurant but really worth it. Service is excellent, boss is very nice, waitresses, dressed in traditional outfits are very kind and efficient, food is really good and well presented. Wine can be as much as 3000 Euros (to satisfy celebrities that go in the place). Price of food is around 50% higher than in a standard vietnamese... More

My daughter and I were staying just down the road from this spot and what great luck! We had a wonderful late dinner on a Tuesday evening. The buzz was fabulous and the owner could not have been kinder. He came and sat with us, he took our order, he filled my daughter with advice for her next visit. The... More

We went to this restaurant having read a recommendation from a book about where chefs like to eat! It is in an ordinary street and does not look very exciting or elegant outside. Inside it is lovely, the staff are elegant and yet quietly efficient. We think the owner a nice gentleman recommended some choices for us. We had frogs... More

The mean spirited and ill mannered owner asked us to leave the establishment because my son was slightly loud in the restaurant. This place is adequate with overpriced food coupled with poor and mean service. The owner came over to the table with a long and mean face and asked us to vacate the restaurant. He could have asked us... More

As our stay was in Montmarte we had the opportunity to visit here for a couple of meals. The food was amazing. A fusion between Vienamese, Thai and Chinese. Service was great and the owner very welcoming. A great place to visit when you want a change of palette

We have chosen this place to have the last diner in Paris and didn't regret: tasty food, cosy interior, good wine list and beautiful ladies serving us :) Go for a sticky rice, it is a must, served in a bamboo stick. The sweet pork Vietnamese was also delicious!

An excellent fine vietnamese restaurant in Montmartre area. The service is perfect and the food is amazing. Not just a classical Asian place! The sticky rice cooked in bamboo is a MUST!!!!

Staying in Montmartre

Neighborhood Profile
Montmartre is a bustling mix of cultures, colors, and styles which changes from one street to another. Ride the funicular (or, for a real workout, climb the steps) to the sublime Sacré-Coeur (Basilica of the Sacred Heart) with its inspiring view of the city. The church is surrounded by provincial streets and piano bars where tourists, artists, and street entertainers thrive. At the foot of the hill, Boulevard de Clichy features shops not intended for young audiences, while residences are scattered to the north and east. The diverse population includes a large part from the Arab-speaking world, Africa, and Turkey. It’s a corner of Paris full of life and dynamism with charms that can’t be found anywhere else.
