  1. was there last week. We had the shrimp salad and the chicken curry, and we loved both. The atmosphere was great. Definitely intend on going back.

  2. I had a reasonable lunch here, although I have to say the Bo Bun lacked flavour and any form of spice. The ingredients were fresh though and it was a fun place to sit and watch the world go by.

  3. Had the vegetarian soup there which was basically just a bowl of standard stock, some wilted coriander leaves, burnt garlic and caramelised onions (so it had a sweet taste on top of the burnt taste of the garlic) with a couple of (heavily overcooked) rice noddles. As a side dish they generally offered a small bowl of raw soybean sprouts….. This is supposed to be a main dish but you will still be hungry afterwards. Not nice and at 11 euros for a bowl I expect ( and have eaten) much better. Avoid.

  4. Ate lunch here today — had the bo bun avec crevettes — and will not go back. The crevettes were very overcooked (in stark contrast to something I love about Paris — very succulent shrimp in general), and the bowl overall was rather bland. For 18 euros apiece (we shared a Coke and dessert too), I could get a much better meal elsewhere. Caveat: the prices of drinks are 4-5 euros each; stick to water.
