Very pretty and exotic tropical interior, makes for an occasion. However note that the prices here are way higher than other Thai restaurants in Paris and the food is not much better. High budget place.

I went there with friends: actually we were looking for an Indian restaurant nearby but it was closed. I took a vegetable curry with coconut milk: 't was OK. I paid 12€

I went there for lunch with friends. It was my first time there after hearing about it. There are choices for starter, main dish, and desserts. It is a good choice for any who doesn’t know much about Thai food. You can have an experience...More

You will be seated among the trees and waterfall. That experience is unique. I would recommend having cocktails and a menu. It is expensive but worth it. I would not say the cooking is outstanding but it is definitely tasty and not disappounting.

As expected l wasn't disappointed this time round too. ambiance remains great. The place is quite packed though and it takes a long time for service to get to you. The choice of dishes is diverse. This time l had fish- the black bass.

Bastille / Oberkampf
Bastille and Oberkampf are lively parts of town made
for entertainment. During the day rows of unassuming
bars welcome customers for a bite or a drink, but it’s
at night this area really comes to life. Students and
young professionals fill the busy bars around Bastille
and Oberkampf. At Place de la Bastille, crowds flock
to the Opéra Bastille in the evening and groups wait
for coveted tickets during the day. Towards
