We ordered a take-away menu of over 30 Euros for the evening, which should have been quite a substantial amount of food.

However, the five different orders we had were actually rather small. Furthermore, the quality of the food was outrageous. The duck we ordered was full of bones with a hideous sauce that we were not even sure of what it was made of.

The spring rolls were old and soggy and the shrimps we had were also old and fried to the death.

All in all, it was a really bad experience and I would not advice anyone to go there.

This restaurant is always packed with a mix of Chinese and no-Chinese clientele. Most of the Chinese operating shops and restaurants in this Chinatown located near Arts and Métiers métro are from Wenzhou.

They have a lot of snack items that are displayed in the fridge at the front of the restaurant. The fried dumplings are quite good and should be eaten with the black vinegar. Condiments are on each table. Try their pancakes stuffed with salty green vegetables and any of their fried noodle dishes. They also do this fried chicken dish that is delicious.

Four people can eat here for under 50 euros, which is a bargain in Paris. Service if not friendly but it's fast. It can be a bit noisy when the place is full. So, don't go if you want an intimate and romantic setting. Go if you want tasty, fast and cheap Chinese food.
