“Superb food, friendly waiters, simply perfect!”
Reviewed August 6, 2013

Really a hidden gem in Paris. It's in the Rue de Veron, a bit of a shabby street, but the restaurant is really worth a visit. If you want to try authentic Vietnamese food you should go here. We had the caramellised pork, chicken with vegetables, and pho (vietnamese soup). Everything was very nice!

“Hidden gem with GREAT food and great service - Affordable too...”
Reviewed June 3, 2012

We were at Montmarte walking around and we were set to go to another popular restaurant highly rated on Trip Advisor which is on the same block. However we looked at the daily menu and we didn't see anything we were thrilled with.

We've been eating french food for a week now and wanted something different. I noticed a sign that said Vietnamese food. I asked my wife if she was hungry for some Vietnamese and she agreed to go by and look at the place.

We walked by and looked at the menu on the window and it looked great. And better yet, the place was packed inside. That's typically a good sign. We decided to walk around a bit until it cleared out a bit.

When we came back we got a table. The restaurant is VERY clean and it's not a big place. It looks like it's a family run place. The owner was taking the orders and acted as our waiter as well. His English was good.

They have some FABULOUS daily specials for very affordable places. But they are only from Monday to Friday. It was saturday when we went. For example, for 9 Euros they had a special of some Pho Noodles as an appetizer, a main dish and dessert for only 9 Euros!

We got some fried egg rolls that were really good. Vietnamese style with the lettuce and mint leaves to wrap it with and the yummy dipping sauce.

For the main course I got a Pork with almonds dish that had a wonderful and delicious cause and very fresh vegetables. My wife got a chicken with vegetables dish which she also loved!

The service was very good as well. This has to be one of the best value places in the entire area with delicious food. We'll definitely come back here and I'd recommend it for anyone looking for yummy food that is tired of the typical French cafe or restaurant.

It's a very small and unassuming place but very clean with great food and service. Highly recommended.
