“Tres Bon!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 30, 2013

So delicious!! We started off with their signature salad and salmon sashimi. Both beautifully presented and tasty. We were warned by the attentive staff that the Bi Bim Bap was VERY spicy but it was absolutely wonderful. The Udon was delicious- the ingredients so fresh. Great food, great service, in a clean stylish setting at a very reasonable price. You can't ask for more.

“Finally, good Asian food in Paris!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 18, 2013

I adore this place. The udon noodle soup is divine, truly one of the best in the city, and I have tried quite a few (yes even the specialist places in rue St Anne).
The waiters are brilliant, very attentive and totally the opposite of the usual surly Parisian service.
Surprisingly good value for money too. One of my favourite lunch options. Service is lightening fast, especially if you are on your own.

“Favorite Restaurant in Paris”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 11, 2013

Don't pass Xin Gainian up! Their udon is the best asian plate in Paris! The servers are extremely friendly and will recognize you a second time around! This restaurant is perfect for frenchmen and expats alike!

“Don't wok on by!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 11, 2013 via mobile

Found this restaurant after discovering the original we wanted to eat at closed on a Sunday! yet again another mention to the TripAdvisor Paris app for finding good restaurants 'around me' and providing some reviews.

Upon entering we were immediately impressed with the Modern Asian fusion decor and warm greeting, which the staff maintained through out the duration.

No problems with English and some very fun banter included. Good selection of Oriental beers available, I played it safe with a bottle of the well known Tsingto.

For starters we had Oriental fried shrimp and chicken & vegetable ghoza. Both were delicious! Main course consisted of massive fresh bowls of noodles vegetables and meat for us both. Pretty standard for this kind of restaurant but the freshness and taste were standout. My only regret of the evening was not sticking around for dessert, instead opting for a slightly disappointing crepe at crepe city *see seperate review*.

All in we left satisfied and raving about the food only 40e including tip lighter than we walked in.

Highly recommended!
