A friend recommended this place and since I've been a loyal customer. I live quite far (1 hour -1.30 hour trip from this restaurant), yet I never mind to go through this small Laotian restaurant coz I never got disappointed with the food! All the favorite is the noodle with three treasures (that includes crispy pork, chasiu pork, and steamed... More

I stayed in paris for a month, and I did miss Asian food a lot. So my friend told me about this place, and yes, it is so delicious. If you are looking for Asian noodle, this is the place. You can choose the meat, chicken, beef, pork, or mix. I also ordered shrimp crackers, or you can say dimsum... More

I love Lao & Thai & Vietnamese / Cambodian food... And this places delivers all the goods when it comes to this kind of South East Asian Food... Their pad thai is very good, so are the noodles with 3 meats. Overall a very good experience, not the best, but excellent for the price.

Fell in love with the place since 2013 and also enjoyed my Chicken/ beef noodle ever since. I also love the desserts. And for those you love chilly, they have the most delicious chilly sauce/ paste available there, and i keep on coming back for more

Visited during lunch hour on a Saturday. It was not crowded and there were no queues outside, maybe because we were early. You can tell that the restaurant is family run from the small setting and staff, the waitress even spoke the same hometown language as I do so it felt somewhat surreal to me. First thing I noticed was... More

The "nouilles aux trois trésors" is to die for :-) I have been in many asian restaurant in Paris and this one is absolutely one of the best. The place is quite small and during rush hours there can be a very long queue. So my advise is to arrive quite early or quite late. If you're only 2 to... More

Small and crowded family-style Lao (and Vietnamese) restaurant in the 13th arrondisment of Paris, just a few yards away from Place d'Italie. The food is nice and cheap; I can't say it tastes 'like in Laos' since I've never been there, but I can sure say it tastes really good, and is a welcome change from the quite uniform Vietnamese...

Staying in Place d'Italie / Quartier Asiatique

Neighbourhood Profile
Place d'Italie / Quartier Asiatique
Far off the beaten path, this part of Paris is a forgotten gem worth exploring. Avenue d’Ivry houses Europe's largest Chinatown with great Asian supermarkets and shops, and a thrilling atmosphere around Chinese New Year. Place d’Italie impresses onlookers as soon as they set their eyes on it. Not far, around La Butte aux Cailles, the streets suddenly imitate provincial France and you’ll feel like you’ve been transported. The beauty of these streets lies in their surprises around every twist and turn.
