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.

I recently ventured into the St. Michel area for some food with family members visiting me from Ireland. We happened upon this seemingly authentic chinese and thai restaurant. The staff were eager for the custom and go so far as to say badgered us to eat there. Eventually we complied and all seemed well from the variety on the well... More

We visited this little restaurant after wandering round unsure what to eat. My husband is vegetarian so we always need to make sure we can cater to his needs. We were a little unsure when ordering what he would actually get but it turned out to be an excellent meal. We had vegetable spring rolls and egg foo yung to... More

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.

Aubergine was drench with oil. crispy noodle was like eating crackers too little gravy. Being an Asian I would have say it's a bit lacking Thai fried rice was so so but staff are friendly and very easy going

We searched on Tripadvisor for a nice, non-expensive Chinese restaurant in the area that we were walking around and stumbled upon le lac de l'ouest. At first we were unsure if they had any tables, but there is a small room not visible from the front door that can seat another ~10 people. We were quickly seated and given menus.... More

On our last night in Paris, we were off to the boat trip along the seine, but had wanted to eat in the St Michel area again as we had the day before. We liked the bustling streets, although the restaurant sales technique is a little testy. We had struggled with finding somewhere that sold proper vegetarian food however when... More

This restaurant is in the labyrinth of eateries in the Latin Quarter. The service is pretty bad but dont be put off as the food is so good. We have been here 3 times over our last 2 trips to Paris.
