“Dim Sum is Excellent!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 10, 2014

We are from NYC, staying in Paris for 2 years. We were looking for a decent place for Chinese in our neighborhood and were having difficulty finding something authentic and tasty... until we found Lim's place! Thank you, Lim's - we've already eaten here 6 or 7 times! The 5 dumpling variety plate is delicious and served piping hot ; it includes ha gau (a shrimp dumpling), pork shumai, shrimp shumai are our favorites. There's also a chicken dumpling and a veggie dumpling to round out the bamboo steamer. The price is very reasonable (6 euros for 1 of each of the 5 dumplings or 5 euros for 4 of the same dumplings). The rest of the menu is pan Asian (Thai basil chicken and some saffron rice dishes) and are also very good. This restaurant includes complimentary rice (white, fried rice, or saffron rice) as a side with each dish, which is normally not the case in Paris!

They have menus in English and in French and the proprietor speaks both as well. The restaurant looks small on the ground floor, but there is additional seating (sufficient for larger parties) upstairs.

“Clean, comfortable, pretty good, just not sure what Asian it was?”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 12, 2014

Walking in this neighborhood, I was just happy to find a place to not eat French food, dare I say it? This place was clean and open, and had an odd pan asian menu, though the staff I think spoke Cantonese. I had a shrimp salad, which was odd, and a basil chili chicken which seemed between Thai and Chinese. Now it wasnt great, but it was fresh, and quite reasonable. I am not sure I would return however.

“Eatable”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2012

I wouldn't say more, not really that close to real Chinese food but if you want something quick and cheap for lunch it is somewhere you can stop.
