“HUGE menu but small portions.....”
Reviewed 19 June 2012

We were in the mood for some Asian food and headed to a restaurant we went to a few weeks ago that was very good. Unfortunately it was closed as it was Sunday. So we walked around quite a bit in the area (near Sacre Coeur) and most of the restaurants were totally packed solid as it was Sunday and tourism was in full swing.

We still wanted to eat some Asian food and almost all of the restaurants in the area are closed on Sundays. We walked by this place and was surprised it was open. It's a very big restaurant and no one was in it which typically isn't a good sign. But the menu was HUGE. They had a bit of everything. Chinese, Vietnamese and Thai too.

The lady at the counter was eating food at a table near the entrance so looks like we interrupted her lunch. She took our order and then went back to eating. My wife got the chicken with pineapples and I got the sweet and sour pork. We started out with the Vietnamese pork spring rolls with the lettuce wrap with mint leaves.

Everything was very good. Someone else mentioned it was affordable which it was at around €9 per dish. However I have to say the portions were really small so definitely you will still be hungry after the meal even if you get an appetizer.

But as far as good food....no worries there...the food was all fresh and veggies as well. And the place was clean. The menu was also in English which always helps.

“Nice Asian restaurant in the middle of France”
Reviewed 28 March 2009

I'm originally from Los Angeles, California. I went here with family on a 2 day bus tour of paris. On the second day, we stopped by this restaurant after we were craving some Asian food. This was by far the best bang-for-the-buck Asian restaurant in France that we went to based on a limited budget. The dishes were about 10 euros per entree. Portions were quite large. One person in the group had a bowl of pho, which tasted better than the one we had in brussels. Also had some duck, stir fried noodles, and a few other dishes which we couldn't remember. When we left, we asked if we could have some souvenir and they gave us some of their silver-colored chopsticks..lol. Also gave us a calendar w/ their address. One thing that really stood out about this restaurant was the people there seemed really honest an down to earth. My dad's friend forgot his camera here after lunch. We he came back, this place had his camera waiting at the counter. This really says a lot about this restaurant. Would definitely come back next time.
