This is an unassuming little nice place for a quick and delicious lunch; the gentle manager/owner and his two assistants serve a few tables and lots of tasty take/out Vietnam food and bubble teas. The street is a little nosy, but the building facades in front make for a pleasant typical Parisian view. I had a delicious Bœf Citronelle Bò Bún and my son had an excellent Phō au Bœf and two veggie nems. Jazmine tea was on the house.

Really enjoyed the pho and herbal drink here. Not too many seats available, but takeaway is also an option

Was walking by and had a craving for pho. Was actually quite delicious. The summer roll was huge and quite tasty. Some language barrier but got through it with some hand signals. All in all, pretty good

It's easy to walk right by this place on a busy Parisian street; stepping in feels like being teleported to south-east Asia. Casual, authentic, fresh food served fast and friendly - you can't get better pho than this in the Marais for these prices.

We ducked into this place in the midst of a downpour. Though our French was limited (as was their English), the service was friendly and helpful. We both had bun (a noodle dish) and it was fresh and flavorful, and as authentic as you'd find in an eatery in Vietnam. Pricing was also very reasonable. I'd eat here again.
