Authentic Chinese cafeteria

This is a great find if you want to have a decent Chinese meal in a modest, but very busy place at unbeatable prices. It's not far from Centre Pompidou, and always worth a visit, be it for lunch or for dinner. They have a card, but you can also choose from a set of fresh dishes on display at... read more

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.

Staying in Le Marais

Neighborhood Profile
Le Marais
The Marais is a winding maze of multi-faceted streets that beg to be explored. It bursts with small boutiques, historic buildings, cozy traditional restaurants, and hidden parks. Around each corner, you'll come across little gems of architecture spanning the centuries, from understated medieval towers to classical libraries and 17th century splendor. This neighborhood unites a rich mix of people of all ages, but it's best known for the gay scene mostly in the south and the Jewish community around Rue des Rosiers.
