We stopped for a lunch and enjoyed very nice Tai food. Please try the shrimp soup! Is little spicy, but you will love it! The seafood plate with basil and shallots is also very nice.

Great little restaurant, good service, excellent food and a real authentic feel to it. Highly recommend the green and red curries and the duck is cooked beautifully in all their dishes. Book to avoid disappointment as it fills really quickly, but you can order to take away too and it's cooked incredibly quickly. Absolutely worth a visit if you're in... More

Superb food. A good blend of herbs and spices, I asked the waitress to choose for me and her selection was spot on. I will be going again, but you need to book, it gets busy!

Spotted down an alley off the Place du Marche, I went here with business colleagues. The menu is shorter than in most Thai/Asian restaurants, but every dish we chose was excellent. I had Thom Kha Gai and then Prawn green Thai curry, and cannot praise them enough. Service is quick and friendly although dishes do arrive as they come off... More

Cute place. Decent food. Nice people. We were there on a cold day and had a really excellent chicken soup. The wine selections were also good. They paired very nicely with the Thai food. I'm a big fan of duck. However I did not enjoy the duck dish as much as I enjoyed The truly excellent beef panang. The restaurant... More

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 took a two course meal,... 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
