The place is usually crowded with locals but if you come early you should be good. It is in Chinatown so you really feels out of Paris with HK TV on large screens. No place between the table. Not really friendly staff but the service is quick and efficient. The food is very good and not expensive.

We found this place recommended in the Michelin Guide de Bon Petit Tables, reviews there were as on T/A pretty well all excellent & with good reason - The food is truly excellent. Fresh clean flavours, fresh ingredients cooked perfectly. Don't go expecting effusive western hospitality in the service - this place is bustling, efficient and the service fast. What... More

Nestled in the heart of China town in Paris, it serves really good chinese food and is always full. It is the Hong Kong Chinese style. I've been there twice and never disappointed. They have a wide variety of food and can accommodate all tastes. Definitely try the canard laqué

This is definitely the best Chinese restaurant in Paris. And it shows as it is always extremely crowded and for this reason, no reservation is taken. They are really efficient in the service but if you do not want to wait, go there before 12/noon or at 2:00pm; in the evening go there no later than 7:00PM if you want... More

Try the roasted duck, pork spare ribs, and suckling pig. Pair these with fried rice. Went back to this place just for those, delicious.

That was my first time eating at "Chinatown" in Paris, and (needless to say) I left the restaurant a very happy woman indeed. I was homesick and was craving for crispy noodles, so I ordered the one with prawns, and after much deliberation and indecisiveness (as there were many dishes I like on the menu), a plate of spiced duck...

Crowded, rushed, but very good. You might need to queue but it can be worth it (I always visit it after 2:00 for lunch). The Best Chinese in town. Clean.

Staying in Place d'Italie / Quartier Asiatique

Neighborhood Profile
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 been transported. The beauty of these streets lies in their surprises around every twist and turn.
