“Excellent, authentic, reasonably priced Sze Chuan Food”
Reviewed July 1, 2014

Visited this place because it was close to the apartment where we were staying.

Very authentic Sze Chuan chinese food. The place is very small, basic and patronized by Chinese. We ourselves are Chinese from Singapore. What's more we just visited China just coming going to Paris. So we know what authenticity is. We had the spicy beef and the aubergines. Both were excellent. Will revisit if possible and if we miss Chinese food whilst in Paris.

“Spicy and what else?”
Reviewed October 28, 2013 via mobile

Okay. It's spicy. Okay. It looks "local" cause it's full of actual chinese people (usual sign of quality) but...
Personally I like spicy food, and this restaurant keeps promises, but there is not a lot to taste after that.
The quality of dishes is poor, cheap if I can say, and prices are kind of normal... There are better cheap chinese restaurants everywhere in Paris, the add of spicy is not a good reason to come here. The three cute girls at the desk are the only nice souvenir from this place.

“Decent spicy food, incompetent service”
Reviewed July 29, 2013 via mobile

Authentically spicy food is hard to come by in Paris because, so many French people are afraid their subtle palates will be ruined by hot spices, that most international cuisine restaurants stay in business by adapting their cuisine to the bland local taste. Not so at Deux Fois Plus De Piment. They really do pour on the hot red pepper and Szechuan peppers which numb your tongue. This is mainly tasty but sometimes veers into hotness and greasiness just for its own sake. While the food is tasty and the prices correct for Paris, I must comment that the service is bad here. They are not rude but they are incompetent. I've eaten in the restaurant twice and had takeout and the service was bad enough that I haven't been back since. Takeout took 45 minutes despite being told 15 minutes. Our first dish came out 30 minutes before the last one. It just sat on the counter. Unsurprisingly half our takeout dishes were cold when we got home. Eating in the restaurant we had to ask repeatedly for serving spoons for the dishes. And for water. Which is something you really need in a spicy food restaurant!

“Delicious chinese food where local chinese go”
Reviewed August 9, 2011

We rented an apartment for a week in August and asked the owner where to go for a good meal. Without hesitation he said 'right next door'. The place is extremely basic and has only a few tables that seat only about 20 people in total, but service is very friendly, and most importantly the food is delicious. The cuisine comes from Sichuan, a place in the middle of China, and known for its hot and spicy dishes. Everything is extremely tasteful and we would recommend it to anybody that likes chinese food. The fact that nearly every visitor was chinese, said a lot about the place :-) Luc & Lina
