Absolutely brilliant meal. Try the beef & onion dish or the Vietnamese spring rolls for something a little different. The soups were extremely popular when we visited and it was full on a Sunday night. Staff were helpful and managed to get round the language barrier of their limited English and our conversational yorkshire-accented french. Gave us a free drink at the end of something that blew our socks off! Totally worth it and would return without a doubt. Cheap too for four mains a rice some spring rolls and two rounds of drinks about €55 which is fantastic in paris. Great.

Some dishes excellent - spring rolls, some disappointing e.g. salt and pepper squid. Prices reasonable, service helpful.

I read Trip Adviser reviews and tried this place on the the basis of the previous positive reviews. While it is inexpensive and convenient, the quality of the food served is not that high.

It was a Saturday night around 8pm and the restaurant was quite busy, however the service was good and the staff were attentive and dealt with ordering in English easily. I ordered Pho with prawns and the meal arrived relatively quickly but was a disappointment. Alongside 6 prawns there were pieces of half-cooked carrots floating in the bowl of noodles. No green vegetables to be seen and no side of mint, coriander and bean prouts that usually accompanies pho. I asked for fresh chilis, which were quickly delivered, but the soup was insipid and tasted strongly of garlic. The lack of a more traditional Vietnamese taste was a disappointment, especially when ranked against suburban Vietnamese restaurants in London, like one of my favourites, Hai Ha in Hackney.

Interestingly, the rest of the street is packed with Japanese restaurants, including one called "yakisushi" (meaning 'fried sushi') which has to be one of the worst fake Japanese names I have seen.

This restarant was close to our hotel so we tried it. We had a wonderful meal and good service so we returned a couple of days later. It was busy, but we never waited and it seemed like a local clientele. They have many noodle dishes if that is what you are looking for. The prices were reasonable for Paris

I had fried noodles with beef. Is good, pretty fast and good quality. It's cheaper than other options around the area. It was enough food that I had it to go.
