“Delicious”
Reviewed July 29, 2011

My husband and I live in the 15th arr of Paris and go to this Thai restaurant regularly. The food is quite delicious - it is fairly sophisticated (all beautifully presented on plates rather than chinese style in little bowls) but unmistakenly Thai. It is not particularly cheap but for the quality of the food, we think it is worth it. Green papaya salad, rare beef filet with basil, giant gambas with a red curry sauce and lemongrass slivers, sea bass in a spicy basil sauce ...

There is a lunch plate at midday which is good value for money and also a thai style brunch at the weekends. Oh, and despite it being quite sophisticated, there is a children's menu which my children love and the restaurant is very welcoming of children. The exotic fruit juices are always a hit with my children.

Finally, the wine list is very good and I can fully recommend both the Gewurtztraminers which we think go particularly well with Thai food.

“Very welcoming and tasty food.”
Reviewed January 7, 2011

The staff in this restaurant were very welcoming and helpful. The food was tasty and interesting. As to be expected for Paris the atmosphere did not hot up until later in the evening when the retaurant filled up. Not touristy which we enjoyed. Prices were typically Parisian but that is to be expected.

“Very good Thai food in Paris”
Reviewed December 11, 2010

Modern, clean ambience, little a bit lacking atmosphere - just ok.
Just a few tables over there, so better to reserve a table over the weekends.
Reasonably long menu, reasonable parisian prices.
The food was really excellent Thai tasting - not really europeanized like usual, nicely presented.
Forget about some good wine selection and forget also that the thai waitress will have any clue about what they are offering in the wine list, well anyway you came for Thai food and not French wine.....
