This is a very cheap chinese restaurant used by the locals. Ordering in a snap, food comes before you stop your sentence, the portions are smallish but you can order several alternatives. Popular also for takeout. Excellent price/quality! Very friendly service.

Went for diner with a couple of friends and really enjoyed the food. surely you can get better choice in the Chinese district but here in the middle of Paris it was rather good. Good service overall, e.g. rapidly served.

I went there with 6 friends and the restaurant was full. We waited for half an hour and finally we had our table. The environment is not chic but really spare. It is ok for friends but not for a couple. The service is quite fast and the waiters are ok. The portions are really generous and the quality of... More

We always eat here a few times whenever we come to Paris - the prawn dumpling soup is wonderful and the pan fried pork dumplings are addictive! There is a small selection of wine and beer and water is served free. It's excellent value, nearly always jam packed with satisfied customers.

It's almost always open and has authentic Asian food. We have been in Paris for 15 days and have had supper there three times. It can be crowded and the seating tight but it's all worth it. Some alcohol served. Prices very reasonable. We are a 60 year old couple from western Canada. Clean, with safe food.

When visiting in Paris, a local person stopped us and kindly pointed us in the direction of Chez Shen. Really nice, simple Chinese restaurant. Good food, friendly, helpful staff and all round good experience. Mainly frequented by locals and a nice break from the typical tourist type places.

We ordered a take-away menu of over 30 Euros for the evening, which should have been quite a substantial amount of food. However, the five different orders we had were actually rather small. Furthermore, the quality of the food was outrageous. The duck we ordered was full of bones with a hideous sauce that we were not even sure of... More

This restaurant is always packed with a mix of Chinese and no-Chinese clientele. Most of the Chinese operating shops and restaurants in this Chinatown located near Arts and Métiers métro are from Wenzhou. They have a lot of snack items that are displayed in the fridge at the front of the restaurant. The fried dumplings are quite good and should... More
