Disinterested waiter but not a problem as only stopped for a drink. Seemed to be very interested if people were ordering food. Not the best but not the worst either.

I had dinner at this lovely restaurant a few night ago. Lovely place and various places from outside - to down-stairs between the barrels of the wine! There is also a bar for those who just wants a drink inside. The menu is in French - but upon request, an English menu is available. The wine-list is great - but... More

I had not dined at Chai 33 in years. Being back in Paris meant I could finally get to enjoy an nice meal in this (previously) great place. But, how disappointing it was. On arrival, it appeared that the place had gone from previously smart to now being just another tourist shack. Quite crowded with all sorts of people not... More

We were a group of 4. Fancy crowded place where you see at once people come to socialize and don't care about eating. Waited 55 min. for our orders, after having rejected 3-4 times dishes destined to other tables! I wonder how is this place is organized : empty-handed waiters are running all the place around acting busy... They also... More

Unique place to have nice dinner. Good and inexpensive wine selection. Decent fusion food with a bit of Thai and Japanese influence. I have to admit that the ambience was the highlight, more than the food. Nearby restaurants were also packed when we were there. It was clearly a hangout place for locals.

An excellent restaurant in Paris. This area used to be the place wine was brought in Paris from all the wine producers in France. The last alley that survived this area is "cour Saint Emilion." All the restaurants and stores are built in the old caves that used to keep this wine. Chai33 is an excellent restaurant, where you can... More

Four of us . half an hour to get water and order. Food then arrived rather quickly. Sausage was barely warm. Salads looked OK. Forgot to bring coffee which was included. Overpriced, understaffed.

As most places at Bercy Village, this restuarant is a kind of tourist trap. Huge, average or zven poor quaility food. At Chai 33 the service is poor. I waited one hour for a very simple starter. Prices are also French. No good quality for the price you pay, but also not much of an alternative at Paris Bercy Village.... More

On the plus side: they found us a table on a Friday evening at peak hour. Then, everything went wrong. The waiter took our drinks order after 10 minutes. Two drinks ordered, one made its way to the table, part of it was directly spilt on the table. The second one completely failed to appear. We waited 25 minutes, the... More

Wine lovers can choose from a vast and reasonable priced selection to be tasted with your meal or to be bought to take home at wholesale prices.
