The restaurant smelled terrible (like a public toilet). Service beyond appalling. Staff and owner aggressive and impolite. Loud atmosphere. Food service slow. They charged us for food we never received. In the middle of nowhere.

While I'd normally consider Chine Massena as merely a good dimsum place, in Paris Chine Massena is a welcome oasis of quality Chinese food in a city of pretty sub-par offerings. You can forget Paris (while truly a beautiful city, try living here for a few years and you'll understand the desire) for an hour or two while chowing down... More

A large and very busy place. The food was good but nothing to really brag about. Due to the large amount of customers they tend to rush you through the meal. Be aware of the roving carts that frequent the tables as they are just trying to upsell some additional food items and you can easily run up a large... More

After a month in France, we were eager for Cantonese food and when we learned about Chinatown being on the metro line at Porte de Choisy. We went and were told Chine Massena was a good place for dim sum. It is a large typical Chinese restaurant that can hold large numbers suitable for banquets and parties so we expected... More

We had reserved a table for two ( call made in english ) and when we arrived there was no one who could direct us to our table. The staff who where present there could not even understand a thing when we mentioned that we had a reservation that was already confirmed. We even doubted if we were in the... More

Great dim sum has been available every time we've been to this restaurant mid-day and it always satisfies. Carts are available on weekends and on any of the weekdays that we've been there, most recently on a Monday (as a party of 7) although many diners were enjoying soup and not dim sum. A couple of times when we've ordered... More

I see how some might be disappointed by their dim sum experience here, but it is all about the timing. It's not a full time ds resto, instead bringing out the 2 or 3 carts only for Saturday and Sunday lunch (as far as I can tell). And you better come at the beginning, since they often stop refilling the... More

There has been a change of management. The food is very good and fresh every day. Service can be slow which is understandable if you go at the rush hour. I go to the same waiter every time so service is excellent. Ask for "Kaing" Very reasonable and authentique. Fish, crab and lobster picked straight out of the aquarium in... More

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.
