Not authentic Laotian or Thai food; gentle and waterdown flavors for European palate. Disappointed by the reviews.

Not your tipical hole in a whole. This is a nice restaurant. Do not let the modern design fool you, this is still a restaurant where you can get good and authentic food for a good price.

Service is nice and efficient.

Book early because this is not a secret anymore :-) You might have to wait in the long line otherwise.

Our party of 6 enjoyed a lot of different tastes and textures here. A few things were a bit unusual but nothing was bad and most were excellent. The portions were not particularly large or small, and almost everything arrived hot. Prices were reasonable.

Rather than going to one of the "Chinese" places where Vietnamese chefs serve up inauthentic Cantonese dishes, it makes more sense to celebrate the French colonial culinary heritage of Indochina here, with a combination of great flavors. So if you're after a pure Thai or Vietnamese meal, you could find fault, but if you're looking for good food this is the place.

Four of us were just off the plane from the U.S., and we were put off because neither of the two locations, across Ave. d'Ivry from each other, would let us sit down and await the 7 pm opening. When we returned at 6:57 and found a queue, it was more understandable. So expect a wait on a Saturday night (and at other times, apparently).

Good food, but not as expected... very fast service.. it means that everything was cooked in advance, that is not a good signal for a good restaurant... The beer was not cold and the Lao beer is nothing more than a standard lager beer for a cost of 4,4€...I do not thing I will suggest this restaurant to a friend...

The Thai food was only average - did not try the Vietnamese food. The atmosphere is nice, but don't expect a culinary experience - just an average decent meal.
