“Annoying”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2013

Be careful! We went to the Rue Boettie branch of this group of four restaurants. The food and decor were above average but prices were very, very high for Chinese food and I am still scratching my head as to why it is so popular at lunch. They kept trying to upsell us. They wouldn't 't offer us a carafe of water. Then they said that portions were small so we should order sides. Then they charged us 11E for a pot of green tea!

“Quite expensive”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2013

Average chinese restaurant. Quite expensive. Wine was far too cold. Service was good and friendly and the interior of this place is nicely designed. Food was ok, but selection on the menu some kind of strange, as there are also spare ribs offered. Less would definitely be more.

“Money suckers”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013

Awful food and small portions. Few grains of rice in a yucky sauce cost me twice as much as in any other restaurant in Paris, Vienna or Rome. They have a very pricey wine list. Pickpocketting not food is their speciality. Beware!

“Good food, overpriced”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2013 via mobile

Menu has 100+ items, make it very confusing to choose from... Food is very tasty, but overpriced. Had the shrimp hot and sour soup, very good choice.

“Excellent chic Chinese place !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2013

Chinese food scene in Paris is quite large but Chez Ly stands out for the quality of their food: small menu of Chinese and thai dishes, focused on traditional fare, perfectly executed. Booking is absolutely necessary and even then do not be surprised if you have to wait - but it is worth it. Their Beijing Duck is among the best in Paris and definitely worth a try; wine list, rich and unusual for Asian restaurant make it for a perfect diner place. Enjoy !
