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!!!!

While the restaurant has a nice atmosphere and the food is decent, there is nothing Vietnamese to the flavours of the dishes in this restaurant. It is rather overpriced and there is much better and much more authentic Asian cuisine to be found in Paris. The menu consists of a mix of supposedly Vietnamese and Chinese dishes, but I've never...

Overpriced, crammed, and half of the dishes had never seen Vietnam such as the steamed dumplings Har Kau and Siu Mai (they were Chinese) and the portions left a lot to be desired. The Pho soup was the worst I have ever tasted.

Living in California where i have the chance to access to most of the best Vietnamese restaurants outside of Viet Nam, I had to say, I was extremely... More

We needed a break from French cuisine and found this gem on TA. Walked from our hotel, its is a quiet neighborhood on the back side of the Basilica Sacre Cour. The food was outstanding, service top notch and ambiance was warm. With just a few tables it is best to have a reservation. We did not and got lucky.... More

This is one of the better Asian food places in Paris, the food tastes Asian and the ambiance feels Asian. It is small but cozy restaurant and the service is good. Please reserve before attempting to get a table. The prices are on the high side, especially for the area, but nothing out of the ordinary for Paris.
