“Excellent Thai Food on the Rive Droite”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2014

Not easy to find but not far from the Seine on the Rive Droite across from Ile Saint-Louis. Had a red and a green curry (shrimp and chicken) and Pad Thai. All were excellent comparable with some of the top Thai food we have had in the USA. We were welcomed by the owner and the service was quite good throughout. Wine list was limited but good value. Take out is also available next door. Restaurant was small and cozy so tables are close but overall the atmosphere was nice. Not many tables so a reservation would be helpful especially during high tourist season. We went on a Wednesday night in November and the restaurant was full.

“delicious and cute”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2014

had dinner with a friend while visiting paris. this restaurant is super cute, very nice deco and settings, even the toilet is nicely deco!
staff/owners were very polite and service was impeccable.
we had chicken satay, stir fried chicken with thai basil and pad thai with big prawns. everything was so delicious.
I will definitely return to my next visit in paris. I highly recommend this place to anyone, but particularly to couples out on a romantic date!

“Best Thai ever”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2014

I went in this restaurant with my boyfriend to celebrate my birthday. I'm a lover of Thai food and this was the best Thai food I ever tasted!! The atmosphere is very romantic, people whisper to each other and there's a nice jazz music in the background!
The stuff is very careful and ready to discuss the menu
For an entree, two mains with rice and a bottle of wine the price was 60€! A bit higher than a normal Thai but guys, the price is definitely worth the food! Recommended!!

“Classy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2014

Luckily we found this restaurant through Tripadvisor, and sadly we would never have found it otherwise. It's placed in central Paris, but on a backstreet where a lot of people probably wont go by if they don't know what to look for. We only had the chance to visit it two times before we had to go home to Sweden, but both time was fantastic. All the staff was highly professional, very welcoming, spoke well English and cooked delicious food.

The second time we visited the waitress recognised us and offered a vegetarian starter meal( since she recognized my vegetarian friend) which wasn't on the menu, both the meal and the offer was fantastic, you don't expect that from most restaurants..

The place is a bit small and you may end up sitting quite close to some other table, but there is a few tables who are a bit separated from the others, so if that is important you could probably reserve one of those in advance.

It wasn't super-cheap compared to other places, but compared to the overall standards you were really surprised it didn't cost more, so I would really recommend this restaurant if you want something out of the ordinary.

“Good Food with Friendly Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2014

This is one of the most welcoming restaurants I know of. The owners and staff are very helpful. We have always been met with a friendly greeting and great service. I can also say that we have never had a bad meal there, regardless of what we order. This is a great place to go if you want to get away from the typical menu and put a tingle in your taste buds.
