Great Thai Restaurant

I was taken here for dinner by some colleagues while on a visit to our office in nearby Jouy. It's the sort of place I'd never have been able to find myself but it was lovely. Small building with two floors but the tables aren't too crowded together and the service was very good. I had wontons... read more

I had the pleasure of eating at this restaurant on a recent trip to Versailles. It's a little hidden in on of the side streets off the Market square. I had made no reservation and was warmly welcomed by the staff, promptly seated and offered a menu in my native English. I ordered the steamed Dim Sum for a starter... More

This is what you are looking for if you want Thai style food. I don't know another place in Versailles that offers authentic Asiatic Thai food.

We were looking for a different restaurant when we chanced upon this fantastic restaurant. It's located in a nice and quiet street, off the beaten tracks in Versailles, and seems to be popular with the locals. Hardly had a tourist when we are there on 14th September. If you are looking for a menu with lots of choices - this... More

Very good value. We had the pork spring rolls, chicken green curry and beef basil. All were delicious. The servings were very generous as well.

Down a peaceful side street, out of the wandering hordes around the Palace at Versailles. We picked this purely on the basis of the Tripadvisor recommendations and we were not disappointed. I have never been to Thailand, so I can't comment on authenticity as have some of the other reviewers, but I've had a lot of Thai food and this... More

Only good things to say about this truly authentic Thai restaurant. All dishes spiced to perfection for those wanting more that the usual Western South East Asia restaurants. They should add more basic dishes in their menu like Pad Thai etc... One of the best around - one should try the Mao Thai in Chambourcy also!

We tried this restaurant based on the previous reviews on Tripadvisor & we're glad we did. The flavours & quality of the food was fantastic & it was some of the best Thai food we've ever had. I had Dim Sum to start & my husband Scallops, both were excellent. This was followed by Thai Green Chicken Curry & Beef... More

Have been to Thailand several times, love thai food and here I rate it as good as or if not better than in Thailand itself. I love the spicy salads here and also the curries. Only thing is service is a bit slow however, its worth the wait. For a romantic dinner for two ask for a table downstairs as... More

I have been to this restaurant quite often, because it is simply so good! I am quite critical in Asian food (because I myself am originated from Asia), but this restaurant is the best Thai I have ever tried. The entry and the main dish are definitely excellent. The service is efficient. Although this Thai family cannot speak good French... More
