I can't vouch for the authenticity of the food here (I'm used to American Chinese food), but I CAN say that it was DELICIOUS! I had been craving Chinese food and sifted through different recommendations to finally settle upon this one. My huzzy and I...More

Maybe it's a cultural difference in terms of what to expect from a Chinese restaurant in London versus Paris but the food wasn't great. The service was fantastic however so I'm giving it the benefit of the doubt in terms of the menu. Look at...More

Place d'Italie / Quartier Asiatique
Far off the beaten path, this part of Paris is a
forgotten gem worth exploring. Avenue d’Ivry houses
Europe's largest Chinatown with great Asian
supermarkets and shops, and a thrilling atmosphere
around Chinese New Year. Place d’Italie impresses
