Went with a friend wanting to have a meal in a cozy restaurant and ended up there. The place is cozy, with small tables that can be joined to accomodate bigger groups. The people there greeted us with a big smile, and the service was quick and efficient. But the food, oh the food!! We had pancakes; my friend with pork and prawn, and I had the vegetarian one, with tofu and mushrooms. The tofu itselfwas the best-tasting tofu I've ever had (let alone cooked). The pancakes were also filled with beansprouts and served with a lovely, fresh green salad. After that we had dessert: mango with coconut rice and caramel tofu. Both were excellent: tasty, sweet, the rice with sesame and tapioca offering a lovely mixture of textures and balanced flavours, and the tofu was delicately flavoured with ginger, and the perfect thing to have sftrr the pancakes. In fact, I liked the food and quality of service so much I came back to have the vegetarian memu for lunch, and that too was wonderful. The tamarind soup had the right balance between sour, sweet, salty, and umami, with the tomatoes an unexpected, but pleasant, addition. The main was noodles with curry. The noodles were good, but the curry was a star! Mild, full of flavour, and with a lot of tasty, delicious vegetables! In short, I wish I could have stayed longer in Paris so as to try more of its dishes!!

We lived in Vietnam for 2 years and the food here is authentic. Nice small neighborhood family owned restaurant.
The basics are terrific and we judge Vietnamese restaurants by the broth the Pho is cooked in.
The broth here was tasty, no fat floating on the surface and full of herbs.
The mango sticky rice, although strictly a Thai dish, was excellent.
We went three times in our week in Paris and enjoyed each night.

On a cold rainy night the bowl of chicken Pho hit the spot.

Although the seating is somewhat limited, this cozy, friendly Vietnamese restaurant packs a huge, tasty punch. The food was delicious! The dishes were fresh and the sauces extremely well done. The staff was friendly and attentive. We got there early and didn't have issues with seating, but the restaurant became very popular as the evening wore on. My wife sometimes struggles with Asian fare, but can't stop talking about her experience here.
