Arriving late in Paris we wanted to find a nice Vietnamese restaurant. We found K et V through TA. It was a fair distance from where we were staying but well worth the walk!
The restaurant is located just off the canal Saint Martin in a quiet street. There isn't even an awning to indicate the name of the place. But no need to hesitate, the place clearly attracts a crowd. Despite being Thursday night at 8.30, we were able to get a table without reservation.
When I go to Vietnamese restaurants, I usually order Nems and a beef Bo-Bun. Those are my reference dishes for this type of cuisine. The waiter was kind enough to accommodate my special request of separating the Nems from my Bo-Bun (usually they come all-in-one in the same dish) My companion took the chicken Bo-Bun and a green tea brewed with fresh mint leaves.
I have rarely been so content with what I ate. It was so good, that even when I was full halfway through my meal, I forced myself to finish because it was so darn delicious.
The waiters were smiling, helpful, and extremely efficient. There is a Vietnamese and a Thai menu and everything on them looks delicious. I will definitely go back there next time I am in Paris and I recommend everyone else who reads this does the same. The price for two with soft drinks was a decent 31 euros.
