In the wake of Rae’s, Elmer, and Istr, duo Thomas Delafon and Jean-Pierre Lopes, owners of the Plage Parisienne and Très Honoré, decided to convert an old workshop spanning 500 sq.m into a superb Thai-inspired restaurant. The two entrepreneurs asked Clémence and Clément Goutal to design the restaurant’s interior. And they did an incredible job. Revisited in a colonial style, the sprawling space features a cozy little lounge with a mishmash of knickknacks lining its shelves and dark parquet floors, all overlooking a stunning, peaceful inner courtyard. The restaurant has managed to steer clear of more carbon copy fusion fare by putting Antonin Bonnet, a starred chef formerly with Sergent Recruteur, in charge of creating an authentic menu, beautifully executed by Benoit Rolland: delicious fried chicken in pandan leaves with sesame sauce (€11), succulent chicken green curry with cherry eggplant and basil (€19), excellent pad thai with shrimp, tofu, lime and rice noodles done to perfection in tamarind sauce (€18). Original sticky rice with mango and coconut milk (€9) for dessert. Attentive and thoughtful service supervised by the charming Gigi Oliveira. A must-try! Reservations recommended.
