Despite being named after the French capital city, Little Paris actually has quite a rustic look and feel to it. They specialise in homemade classic French dishes, such as Burgundy snails (340 baht), foie gras (490 baht) and crème brûlée (190 baht). There is also an onsite bakery, with an impressive choice of sandwiches available. As you would expect of a French restaurant, the wine and coffee selections are both quite comprehensive, though the choice of pizzas, pastas and Thai dishes is a little more unusual.
