The first waves of Vietnamese immigration to France started over a hundred years ago, following colonization in the 19th century. While Vietnamese restaurants in Paris have long been tied to the 13th arrondissement where many refugees resettled in large housing complexes in the mid 1970s, they’ve popped up all over the city in recent years, many run by first generation French-Vietnamese.
