This restaurant is pretty much your average neighbourhood Thai. The food is middle-of-the-road, but reasonably priced for what you get in this location. I’ve been here a few times and always found the service pleasant and reasonably quick.

A la date du 6 juin 2014 j’avais écrit le commentaire que je remets plus bas. Tripadvisor l’a effacé et je me demande pourquoi. A la suite du diner consommé dans cet établissement, une des personnes qui m’accompagnais a été malade pendant trois jours (et a dû aller chez le médecin). C’est le genre d’expérience qui mérite aussi d’être signalée,... More

Terrible experience, and I even said it to the waitress.... I went with two other people, three of us all together. We were received with a quite abrupt manner; table was not clean after the previous customers left... Food was poor and honestly very expensive for what it was, considering that we got really-really small portions, and with a very... More

I visited this restaurant with a friend for a working lunch. Upon arrival we were asked to return in 10 minutes for a table which we did. We were then sat at a table with another man (?) who swallowed his food rapidly and left so we at least had the table to ourselves. After 10 minutes of waiting we... More

Having lived in Thailand, and studied Thai cooking there, I can say with certainty that this place is not hitting the notes of flavor/texture/color/aroma. Pad Thai was glutinous and sticky with no sour or hot. Grapao was made with basilicum instead of Thai holy basil... all wrong! Even the rice is not aromatic, I think they use Japanese short grain.

Food is good, but usually Thai food is delicious, so maybe good isn't good enough. Atmosphere is bland and service is just ok.

The service was not welcoming, to put it nicely. Ordered vegetarian stir-fry with noodles and water. The sitr-fry had pak-choi, tofu and carrots, quite cheap ingredients, right? However, I was charged 19 euro! It wasn't especially tasty. The "icing on the cake": they didn't have rice, the toilet was not working.

Just had lunch in this restaurant and was very disappointed. The lady was rude and very impatient (she was practically standing over me while I tried to figure out what to take - I had two dishes in mind previously, which they do not serve for lunch - so I had to find something else out of 100 dishes on...

Small neighborhood Thai restaurant near Place Jourdan. The service can a bit slow and the food is middle of the road: not the greatest but not bad. The Green Curry was nice, the Thai beef salad less so. Prices are ok for what is on offer.
