“Very nice three services duck”
Reviewed May 8, 2013

It is not the nicest street in Paris, but it is not far from Eiffel Tower, so, if you are looking for one of the fines ducks in Paris, go to Chen. Price is same than other chinese restaurants in Paris, but this duck is much better than average. Apetizers (raviolis) were very tasty, and the duck service ceremony was perfect. Amzaing French manager. Interesting dessert. In all, we had for 150 euros, for three. A little higher than an an average Chinese, but much better.

Reviewed February 20, 2008

This restaurant is meant to be one of the best Chinese in Paris, and was the first of its category to be awarded a Michelin star.
Their Pekinese duck is stellar, indeed. However, appetizers were below average for an alledgedly gastronomic restaurant.
Dishes as well as wine are overpriced, and the service was either unnoticeable or totally off-hand.
It's a shame because, as stated before, their duck is top-notch.

Reviewed February 6, 2008

It's uncommon to find a really good chinese restaurant, with quality products, a balanced use of spices and good service. Nevertheless, it doesn't justify IMHO the huge prices. The 3 plates duck is worth trying, though.
