This is a no-fuss place, the food is cheap, the ambience is basic and service is straightforward. It's not the best Chinese food you'll eat in your life but for a quick warm meal at an affordable price in Paris with a cheap beer or...More

I love going there as this place there is a quick service. Decent food and cheap. This is not a pretentious restaurant. So do not expect. Great and simple. Restaurants should take the same path 😊

You mustn't have been to China if you think the foods here are good. Though it's quite cheap as a meal in Paris, I'd rather prefer foods in the supermarket. If you wanna have a taste of Chinese food, never go to this one because...More

This tiny place not far from the Pompidou Center serves amazing Chinese food. When you enter, you can see many of the dishes displayed at a take-out counter with pastries and scallion pancakes displayed on top. Definitely go for a meal! The service is fast...More

...but perfect for foreigners. It's an authentic wenzhounese fast-food place almost like in China. Relatively cheap with a lot of choice. Not the best authentic chinese restaurant around but it's fast and the ingredients are fresh.

I absolutely adore having my Raviolis au porc, and two nems to start, if it's cold I'll usually have a soup with noodles and beef, if it's hot I love the Vermicelles de riz au boeuf, I'm not a fan of their dishes precooked, but...More
