We went in and were instantly amazed by how good the decor is. Luscious velvet petit-sofas in the front area and stylish black rattan chairs at the back. Cuisine was casual Chinese with a broad selection of favorites. Go for the assorted fried dim sum.

This Chinese restaurant was convenient to my hotel, and excellent for a late dinner before a long walk around Paris. Wonderful sample of dim sum and Chinese specialties. Service was prompt and very pleasant. Atmosphere is quiet and comfortable.

OK Chinese food. Like most upmarket places, the food is presented beautifully but portions are really small. You cannot compare this restaurant with other more "authentic" Chinese cuisine but it's the decor and ambience that one goes for here. It's stylish and suitably "posh". Only...More

In Saint-Germain-des-Prés, life is effortlessly chic
and all things are beautiful. The main boulevard is
dotted with famed terraced cafés, haut-couture shops,
ivy-covered railings and fine-dining restaurants.
Antique dealers and art galleries surround the fine
art school and small museums hide in unassuming
squares. The neighbourhood’s namesake church is the
oldest in Paris and is the backdrop for talented
