Not the same....

Tong Yen was one of the best Chinese restaurant in Paris not anymore.... Recently the place was sold to a new owner and frankly speaking it is not the same cooking. The food was tasteless and they do not have anymore the kind of quality they used to have. It is not the same

One of my favorite "chinese" . The food (Chef Arishima) is delicious! We were delighted to enjoy an evening at this nice and cosy restaurant designed by Gilles et Boissier. The service is very kind, attentive to our needs. The wine selection is great and we appreciated the advise of the waiters regarding the choices to accord the wine with... More

I went with my husband after we heard it was reopened.I missed the presence of Therese ( the old owner)who spent her time receiving guests.The place completely changed into a modern look without any character.The atmosphere is very International , has no Chinese spirit. The menu does not have the variety of the old restaurant , it looks and feels... More

Tong Yen was the happening place where you would meet the right crowd, political, top bankers, international businessmen, the staff now is pretentious and has no idea of how to treat VIPs, they dont know who is who which was the previous highlight ! now, the menu is simple, and has no interest, lucky Therese the previous owner comes to...

Tong Yen is one of the places you shouldn't have missed a few years and still a few month ago. Today they changed owners and everything has changed. Change isn't bad but this one is brutal. From a choice of 60+ dishes you are now offered 20 and the ambiance has nothing to do with what it used to be.... More

This place is a time warp going in you are back in the 70's and the staff is probably the same as it was back then. I just go for the dim sum and the pekin duck they are both amazing. Ask for a table in a booth downstairs.

We went to this restaurant based on my wife's recommendation. Apparently the restaurant is frequented by several celebrities. When I stepped foot into the restaurant an old friendly lady greeted us very warmly. That is the only good thing I can say about this place. The food is bad and expensive and the wine was served warm. I have a... More

We asked our concierge for something different after a number of nights of traditional French. He didn't let us down nor did Tong Yen. We asked our waiter to pick his favorites, and we enjoyed them all. The highlights were the spring rolls, pork dumplings, crispy spicy chicken and fried rice. Specialty sauces were great. Service was prompt and friendly.... More

Staying in Champs-Elysees

Neighborhood Profile
Champs-Elysees
This area is characterized by its namesake avenue which extends northwest from the Louvre to the modern business district, punctuated by the iconic Arc de Triomphe. Grand embassies stand among impressive offices and presidential palaces; architecture from 19th century Universal Exhibitions, homes, art galleries, and 19th century streets designed by Baron Haussmann flank haute-couture boutiques. This neighborhood never rests, buzzing with visitors from around the world at all times of day and night, all within a stone's throw of the Seine.
