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

We went to this place because we wanted to walk the Champs-Elysee at night and didn't want to have to stray too far for good food (last night in Paris, wanted to do-it-up). Also, another guide had pointed out that it was authentic and tasty, former president Jacques Chirac's go-to Chinese in the city. Believe it or not, he was... More

Avoid, those who write it is good Chinese food have never tasted good food, however if you want to come back home saying that you saw X and Y, then try it : Le Tout-Paris élégant" and you will realize how famous actors/resses and film makers can be so irritating...

My partner and myself went into this Chinese after a long day sightseeing, and we soon regretted not doing our homework before entering! Firstly, we hadn't made reservations so we were very happy to get seated so quickly, service took a bit longer though. We waited 40 minutes for our starters, a simple order of spring rolls and my partner... More
