This is a very unique restaurant. We visited it during Paris fashion week. It's very busy around Paris fashion week. Dave is larger than life, he's a machine, he takes the booking, takes the orders, probably cooks. A bit of a legend. The food is ok. There is NO MENU - quite pricey but a unique, unforgettable experience, worth a... More

The walls full of all kind of celebrities that have been eating at Dave gives the place an "history", the red walls with all this pictures make the place a bit decadent but very cosy to have a diner with friends. It is expensive , but it is the price to pay to eat good asiatic food and to be... More

This was the worst restaurant i have been to, in my life! We were being sent out twice, we were made to feel so unwelcome inspite of our being polite to them. We were checked in at the hotel right next which was Hotel Montpensier, and the reception referred this resto to us. Big mistake. How can a resto send... More

Shabby Chic Decor- shadowy and with an old Indochine feel - red walls with warhol style poloroids give the place a tawdry glamour. I found all of the food to be fresh and yummy - It's a great option for when you simply dont want your usual French fare .

Very good Chinese food. Has no menu but makes nice food. A bit expensive but full of fashion and music people.
