This restaurant is very unique in many ways. It is a "hole in the wall" type of place: unassuming but serving very good food at reasonable fares. During the day, it functions as a Chinese restaurant (operated by the father). At night it transforms into a restaurant serving traditional French cuisine (with the son as the chef). This review pertains... More

The french dining menu is amazing. The chef is in training for mitchelin stars and his family are supporting him with his training. The three courses are well worth it.

Our host at La Villa Paris suggested this little place to us and we were not disappointed. From the outside it looks like a lovely clean Chinese take-away restaurant. On closer inspection you can see tables and chairs inside for dining. What came after we walked inside was most unexpected. We were greeted by a beautiful man with a great... More

Truly unforgettable. A memorable meal in the most unassuming Chinese restaurant, definitely the best French dinner I’ve had in 6 trips to Paris and France. Delicious, inventive, creative, and beautifully presented by staff and chef obviously committed to excellence. My shrimp appetizer was wonderful, my main course of veal superb and my husband’s fish exquisite-tasty delicate-cooked just to be done... More

This is hidden away in a 'take away' Chinese Shop. Set menu with 3 options & 3courses. I haven't ever had a more beautiful & balanced meal. Chef should be congratulated. This restaurant is out of Paris in the 13th arr but is more than worth the train ride to get there. Not to be missed!!

My wife and I are foodies. We've shared numerous great meals, but most are easily forgettable over time. Jin Xin Lou will never be forgotten. The experience was the highlight of our trip to Paris. Chef Wang Gilly learned to cook from super-chef and 3-star Michelin-rated Pierre Gagnaire. After his time studying, he brought his skills back to his parent's... More

My father and I were staying at a nearby B&B in the 13th arrondissement. I am an avid trip advisor reader, and I noticed that this restaurant was well reviewed and very conveniently located. I was looking in particular for French food. In October, there weren't many reviews, so I elected to perform a google search and learned that the... More

Recommended by our B&B Villa Paris, this was very, very nice. Wait staff could not have been friendlier. I had veal, wife had fish. Both came with excellent sauces. Appetizer of shrimp atop small squares of pate fried in spring roll wrapper was wonderful. Dessert terrific: mango chunks on tapioca pearls (I think) topped with the best passion sorbet I've...

Ever felt like eating Chinese food but someone else in your dinner party feels like eating French? Well, then, head on over to this wonderful restaurant run by Mr. and Mrs. Wang. Their talented son Gilly Wang trained with Pierre Gagnaire. From the outside it looks like your typical Chinese take-out or eat-in restaurant with a dsplay case in the... More

A take-out Chinese restaurant with a superstar French chef in the kitchen. What a concept! We traipsed all the way to the 13th arrondissement in Paris to try out this Chinese/French restaurant. We did a bit of a double-take when we entered. This tiny hole-in-the-wall take-out has an acclaimed French chef? When we arrived at 7:00 p.m. the place was... More
