Now with three locations plus an outpost in the tres chichi BHV in the Marais, this asian-fusion bistro offers more than just good food. It offers a lunch time escape to Asia. The successful culmination of three French guys' imaginations (ok, one of them is half Ozzy) John Weng blends the best of Thai, Vietnamese and Japanese cuisine with French culinary sensibility. This is hands down one of the best lunch deals in town and the packed house every day of the week is testament to this. For under 20 you get a full lunch including two appetizers and a dessert plus the house made daily special iced tea such as litchi-rose. The secret to their success? Dishes are not just tasty but also served up in the traditional Asian bamboo baskets and small tasting dishes that you see when you travel to exotic places like Bangkok and Saigon. The food is not too spicy, and in that way it caters more to a French/European palate. Their consulting executive chef is an accomplished Thai chef who spot checks the kitchen's output regularly just to keep everything tweaked to authenticness.
- Best Value: "Lunch is one of the best deals in town. You get four full plates of food, including two appetizers, a main and a dessert. The downstairs seating fills up by noon but don't despair because you can sometimes still find a seat in their fire red dragon dedor upstairs by no later than 12:30. To order a la carte is an equal delight and offers things such as coconut juice marinated ceviche. Miam! (Yum in French)."
- Recommended as Best Value Because: This successful restaurant creates an ambiance as well as serves up authentic dishes of deliciousness.
