If you're an Asian or someone who likes asian cuisine and you're in Paris, this restaurant is worth a visit. Not necessarily the best asian cuisine you'll ever taste but it will at least curb your asian food craving.

We sat for dinner, party of two. One of us is vegetarian. Starter we got fried rolls with vegetables which was very sad 4 mini news (10.50€!!!) and same with the other dish. Main dish was tofu with rice - no beef. Was bad. We decided to end with a good dessert of banana in flames and rum. How can... More

We were here on a sunny Friday at lunchtime. We got quick service and good food. The restaurant served food outside on a lowered platform so the busy traffic did not disturb our experience. Maybe it's a bit expensive, but we thought it was worth it.

We enjoyed a nice dinner at their outdoor seating area. The service was very good as was the food. It can be a bit pricey though for Vietnamese cusine.

The food was good, but for 15 Euros you expect more than a tiny plate containing 90% noodles, 5% vegetables and 5% chicken. Must be the most expencive noodles in the world. Will not visit again.

I love this place. I have been going here for years. They have my most favorite Nems! They are crunchy and you can wrap them in lettuce. And they also have a delicious pork that you can wrap in lettuce and mix with angel hair noodles. And there Bo Bun is my regular favorite , esp the Bo Bun with... More

There is a nice outside eating area below the traffic level on a very very busy corner off St. Germain. Ordered Vietnamese beer- it wasn't very cold. The dishes were authentically named, and there was a large selection but the two our group ordered were bland and rather un-interesting. Many many better places in Paris for quick and tasty vietnamese... More

Had a birthday meal for a very good friend at the main restaurant. The food was very good. Fresh spring rolls, Won ton soup, Scallops, Peking duck, organised birthday cake as well as delightfully cut into exquisite shapes fruit. Ideally suited close to Notre Dame and the river.

I'm unsure what the standard for good Vietnamese food is in Paris, but it seems to be the polar opposite of the best Vietnamese food in the Westminster section of California, also known as Little Saigon. In other words, portions for Hobbits, slow and unresponsive service, expensive. For instance, a bowl of beef pho with s few pieces of brisket... More
