I come here whenever I crave sate chicken skewers. Their homemade dipping sauce is really good, just enough peanuts and spice! It is a bit more expensive than most other restaurants in the neighborhood, but the quality is great, and it tends to be less...noisy than it's neighbors.More

We go often to the 13th Arrondissement trying different Asian food. The turn was on Le Sarawan since it has 4+ rating. Food was OK but not same level as other restaurants with same rating in the same area. So wouldn't recommend starting here if...it is your first visit to the 13thMore

Went there for lunch. It was good. The decoration is coherent with the menu. The food was good and tasty. Had the menu to try a little of everything. It was homemade so it's a plus. The staff was nice too. Had a good time.

Very accommodating - eating at 11:30 - no problem! Prompt service - competent interpretation of east asian/vietnamese dishes and reasonable charges.

I first went to this place 25 years ago when after the representation of a school theater performance. I went then a couple of years after with my girl-friend (now my spouse) and recently. The place has obviously changed but the food is still very...good. The best satay, I had in Paris. The ones you try to do at home without success. So the place is really an institution in the Paris"China-town"More

I enjoyed the spring rolls filled with vegetables. The steak with rice was ok. The fried bananas were ok. The service was good. I find it a bit overpriced.

Tasty food for a very reasonable price and good service! The sheep with mint leaves was very nice! Simple, friendly and clean restaurant

Really nice food, great desert, nice atmosphere, helpful staff (we traveled with wheelchair). The fish prepared in ban?na leaf was really nice looking, may be not exactly to my taste but still good, but spicey squids my girlfriend took tasted delicious. As well as noodles...with seafood. Recommended!More

Had dinner at Le Sarawan together with my wife. Chinatown Paris is not as compact as it is London, New York or San Francisco and lacks the atmosphere. Most restaurants offer a mix of Chinese, Vietnamese food. The food at Le Sarawan was good, nice...looking restaurant too, service was also ok. It is not a budget restaurant, we spent € 55 for two main dishes, some rice and vegetables and a couple of beers. I think next time I go to one of the more traditional Chinese restaurants.More

Place d'Italie / Quartier Asiatique
Far off the beaten path, this part of Paris is a
forgotten gem worth exploring. Avenue d’Ivry houses
Europe's largest Chinatown with great Asian
supermarkets and shops, and a thrilling atmosphere
around Chinese New Year. Place d’Italie impresses
onlookers as soon as they set their eyes on it. Not
far, around La Butte aux Cailles, the streets suddenly
imitate provincial France and you’ll feel like you’ve
