→ 1st review (in French)
The menu specifies "Specialities from Central Vietnam".
This is a joint for a quick meal in the heart of an area that doesn't have many of them (Les Gobelins). The genuineness of the couple that runs the place ( the wife runs the kitchen and the husband handles the front of the house), of the locale itself, and of the cuisine is so unique in Paris that this is an address worth knowing.
Sometimes the wait is a little long, but the family ambiance is so strong that you go there just wanting to have a calm moment to taste healthy home cooked food. On days when there's a lunch or dinner rush, service can be a little chaotic, but things always work out in the end.
Sticky rice with chicken, served with coconut, sesame, and peanuts
½ bottle of rosé, 2 starters, 2 main dishes = 14 euros per person
