I had the worst service I've ever experienced in a restaurant at this place. We sat for almost two hours before receiving our food. Meanwhile several other parties were seated after us, got their drinks, food, paid and left before we ever got our entrees....More

Very pretty and exotic tropical interior, makes for an occasion. However note that the prices here are way higher than other Thai restaurants in Paris and the food is not much better. High budget place.

I went there for lunch with friends. It was my first time there after hearing about it. There are choices for starter, main dish, and desserts. It is a good choice for any who doesn’t know much about Thai food. You can have an experience...More

You will be seated among the trees and waterfall. That experience is unique. I would recommend having cocktails and a menu. It is expensive but worth it. I would not say the cooking is outstanding but it is definitely tasty and not disappounting.

Bastille / Oberkampf
Bastille and Oberkampf are lively parts of town made
for entertainment. During the day rows of unassuming
bars welcome customers for a bite or a drink, but it’s
at night this area really comes to life. Students and
young professionals fill the busy bars around Bastille
and Oberkampf. At Place de la Bastille, crowds flock
to the Opéra Bastille in the evening and groups wait
for coveted tickets during the day. Towards
