Tasty meal!

I went to this restaurant after reading the reviews on Tripadvisor. It didn't disappoint me. The menu was rather limited but it didn't bother me. The food was excellent. You can have a two course meal for € 18,80 or a three course meal for €24. Prices are doable! As we seldom eat desserts, we... read more

We've eaten at this restaurant many times over the years, and they have never let us down. Friendly staff, and good food. I've never been to Thailand so I don't know how authentic, but it's always delicious and they will do "very spicy" if you ask, but be careful what you ask for...!

Fantastic food, I'm back in Versailles this July and I have already booked for tomorrow night. The soup with coconut milk, prawns and curry is really delicious, not to be missed. Very affordable especially for the area. Deco not amazing but who cares when the food is so good.

The food is delicious served in copious portions and for a very moderate price. The restaurant is very low key and the service is friendly and efficient. What more can you ask for? Although there is no real Thai atmosphere the food and service greatly make up for the lack of decor. This restaurant has become my canteen and I... 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

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 with pork and... 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
