Was surprised by this delicious Thai restaurant where I found the real taste of Thailand which is often not the case in Thai restaurants in Paris. The setting is simple and nice and there were plenty of vegetarian/vegan option. Fresh and flavourful. A great lunch option, better price during the week when there is the lunch special.

We stopped here for lunch and loved the feel of this restaurant. Enjoyed our beef green curry and the special of the day, which was some sort of chicken stir-fry with a fried egg. Had two different rosés, which went perfectly with our slightly spicy meal on this hot day. Would go again.

Truly amazing and authentic Thai food experience. I was recommended to order the "Larmes du Tigre Boeuf" which was exceptional. Would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for some good Thai food.

Ate here three times in ten days. Green curry delicious and delicate flavor. Pad Thai is as good as Bangkok all flavors meld into finely textured feast.

It is close to my house so I eat here regularly, and it is always fresh, full of flavour, and delicious. The ingredients are of good quality, the atmosphere is simple and calm with thai products for sale. I've liked everything I tasted on the menu, but I especially recommend the soups and spicy salads. The food is served quite... More

Popped here for lunch shortly before departing Paris. I had a soup with prawns & mushrooms, and chicken with cashew nuts & boiled rice both of which were nice and as I would have expected. My partner had pad Thai chicken which was made with finer noodles than usual but he preferred this. Nice little place with friendly waitress. €30... More

The highlight? The beer was cold (but expensive even by Paris standards and I live here). I have had take-away from here and it wasn't bad, so when a table was available last night on the terrace we took it. A mistake from the beginning. Poor service as understaffed and the food was frankly, terrible. Papaya salad was tasteless --... More

Bad food. Pad thai degusting. The curry is a bol of water with a bit of coconut milk and boiled chewy pieces of meat. Even the lemongrass ice tea wasn't good. Over priced for the quality and the service. Nice little terrasse and nice waitress. But the female owner was rude. Better go to Mme Shawn a the end of... More

I've eaten here many times and the service is always very friendly though occasionally a tad slow. The food is light and fresh and hot food from the bain marie is usually fine. It's a great spot for a light meal for lunch or dinner and they have a decent terrace. They are nearly always full which is a good... More
