Great Chinese food. Specials were advertised on placards outdoors. Only complaint was when we sat down we were given regular menus and had to ask for a special menu. Other than that, food was delicious.

Although the food was spicy and we had to wait in line for a dozen minutes, the food was simply amazing. It was warm, spicy and delicious. My favorite restaurant.

We were walking through the quartier latin and looking for some oriental food and decided to try the lac de l'ouest. On the good side of the dining experience was the food. We had: - cold spring rolls Vietnamese style and warm spring rolls Vietnamese style with shrimp. Both tasted well. Nothing to complain about. - pho: a large portion... More

After eating rich Parisian food for a couple of days, we started to crave Chinese, so we were happy to eat lunch. The food is decent and reasonably priced and the menu is very large, so I'm sure most people could find something to eat here.

My wife, 17 year old daughter and I visited Paris this summer in July. My wife and I had been there before, but it was my daughter's first time. We had eaten at a variety of restaurants, cafe's and brasseries, and after a few nights we were looking for something different. By sheer good fortune, we were wandering around the... More

After over indulging in French food and wine, I started craving for greasy Chinese food. Chinese restaurants or restaurants that offer Chinese food are hard to come by in Paris. This place is located in the lively neighborhood of Latin Quartier. We came here at around 11:30 pm and they close at midnight. We were their last customers and the... More

An extensive menu, not overy priced for Paris, fast service and good tasting Asian cusine - not overly spiced and no added MSG. A really good find in this restaurant district. Happy to recommend.

The welcome is very warm and service very good. We had a Lac duck and a beef in ginger dish following some delicious crispy spring rolls. Wow,the flavours were superb and the freshness wonderful. We live in France and this is the best place by far. Wine and food is a sensible price. Very good value.
