It terms of decor, this is like so many of the older, nondescript restaurants on many main streets - glassed-in patio to watch pedestrians walk by and two dozen tables in front of the kitchen. This one has the added benefit of having the noodle-making visible to diners, an entertainment in itself. But the food was surprisingly good. There was a list of three vegetarian plats, and we split two of them, one with rice and one with the noodles, which are the specialty of the house. We also shared a mustard-leaf (or rapini) salad and a cabbage salad as appetizers. Everything was flavorful, and ingredients were fresh. It was a nice change from heavier, French food.

Nice place to eat asian food.
The speciality of the house, noodles, aren't that spetacular, but good thing is that you can see them preparing the pasta, all manually.
I recommend you ask the starters. They are different from everything and very tasty. That was what worth it.

Noodles are really top notch here, very different from your average chinese restaurant. A good choice of starters as well, though do not expect an extensive list

The worst meal we had in Paris. A mountain of noodles swimming in a bowl of greasy broth containing two or three pieces of grey beef and a couple of pieces of vegetable. Bore no resemblance to the dish on the menu. They didn't care. Avoid the place.

We were in China 4 years ago to adopt our daughter and have been unable to enjoy most Chinese food since. This was outstanding, and came upon it because of a recent article in the NY Times. Full noodle dish ( noodles made right in front of you) for 10 euros. Run don't walk!
