We arrived at around 7.45 for dinner, at which time there was one table for two which was reserved, and three empty tables for four, plus a table for five, plus a small table for two adjacent to the counter - we were steered toward the small counter table, asked for the possibility of a larger table for two, and...

Our family stumbled upon this restaurant while in Paris. This restaurant was our favorite place on our trip so far! The staff was happy. The food was clean and superb! If you want clean, healthy respectable food, try this place. The red curry was something out of this world. The spring rolls were fresh and the sauce was sweet and... More

This is a great little Thai restaurant that I'm lucky to have on my street. The food is full of flavour, the staff are friendly, and modifying dishes to make them vegetarian or vegan-friendly is not an issue.

The food was great but the service was not very friendly. Our server was not patient with us and our lack of ability to speak in French. Had it been a more pleasant experience I would have returned for a second meal but I chose to find places I would feel welcomed.

Based on the very high reviews, I made a reservation for lunch here with a friend as we both love spicy Thaï food. I booked a table for 2 for 1:00pm. As these things often happen in Paris, with unexpected traffic & public transportation delays, we got there 15 minutes late. NEVER in my 20 years of living in France... More

This small thai restaurant offers an excellent choice of meals, also for vegetarians. This combined with a brilliant service and lovely fresh and well cooked food, makes this place remarkable. I really enjoyed my meal. Careful, as the dishes are spicy. For me, being used to Thai cuisine and enjoying well spiced food, it was fine and easy to handle,... More

Bercy / Nation
Nestled between the Seine, Bastille, and Père Lachaise lies a peaceful side of town where wide avenues and impressive buildings accompany green spaces and small parks. Landscaped havens are plentiful, from the Bercy Park to La Coulée Verte and most impressively the Bois de Vincennes, which even contains a medieval castle on its doorstep. For an escape from the masses head to this calming neighbourhood where real Parisians make their homes.
