“Horrible Chinese-run Thai restaurant”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2012

I do not have anything against a Chinese-run Thai restaurant, because I myself is a Chiese descedent. But I have to say that this Thai restanrant that does not deserve a try. The service is okay, as a Chinese restaurant. But the food is horrible!!! The taste would be much better if the owner decided to run a Chinese restaurant.
The owner and the cook do not know how to make Thai food. According to what I got, some fast-food spring rolls are called "Pio Pha" or something like that; a few pieces of chicken émincé flowing inside red-colored coco soup with a spoon of cream on top is called some Thai special curry coco chicken; the dessert tastes like rotten tofu dipped into sugar juice (which I do not really reproach, because asian restaurants usually cannot serve good desserts).

Anyway, if you really want to eat Thai for lunch around La Défense in Paris, this might be the only closer Thai restaurant you could find here. If not, do not go there, you are going to pay a high price for bad food.

“Very good thai in an area not known for good restaurants”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2009

I knew this area for long and when I noticed a new Thai restaurant there,my first feeling was that it was one more of those chinese managed restaurant specialized in everything from bad Japanese food to bad Vietnamese one (and nothing you can actually find in those countries). So i was very surprised the day I tried it to find that it was managed by a staff of Lao origin who knows very well what Thai food is and that the dishes actually taste closely what they would taste if they were made in Thailand (they will obviously make it less spicy for french tongues but one should ask for the Thai taste and it will come with the right chili level). The prices are ok for this kind of food in Paris and around but on the higher range. Who would expect a good thai restaurant around La Defense?... That makes the dinner worth its price...
The atmosphere is very good and the service is efficient and polite.
Very recommanded...
