Time Out says
An authentic Thai restaurant, hidden next to Canal Saint-Martin.
A hop, skip and a jump from Canal Saint-Martin hides Kluaymaïpa, a traditional Thai restaurant which has been attracting loyal customers for over 5 years now. Run by a French-Thai couple, they like to keep things simple, but the food is bought to life by the chef who has worked in Bangkok, assuring a certain authenticity to the menu.
They offer shrimp tom yam soup, super tender sautéed beef with sticky rice, spicy papaya salad... If you’re into spice and punchy flavours, it's all there. The chain of generous dishes are all washed down well with a Singha beer. And don't fret if you can’t use chopsticks, as Thais eat with knifes and forks. For pudding, gluttonous rice, fresh mango and other exotic fruits. It’s a pretty venue and more elaborate and stylish than Street Bangkok canteen found right next-door.
