I love going there as this place there is a quick service. Decent food and cheap. This is not a pretentious restaurant. So do not expect. Great and simple. Restaurants should take the same path

My wife lived in China for years and loves Chinese food so we like to visit Chinese restaurants around the world. This place sounded promising: tasty and cheap. It wasn't expensive but it didn't matter because the food wasn't good. We tried many dishes and did not like any of them. They were bland, tasteless, and you could see them being heated in a microwave. There are lots of dive restaurants around Paris that cost the same or less but have better food. I'd give it two stars because we finished our meals (though we were hungry). But my finer half says one, and she is the Chinese food gourmand, so one it is.

You mustn't have been to China if you think the foods here are good. Though it's quite cheap as a meal in Paris, I'd rather prefer foods in the supermarket.
If you wanna have a taste of Chinese food, never go to this one because it's inauthentic and tasteless. The opposite restaurant offering northeastern Chinese food is much better.

"The dress does not make the monk" found a new witness.

For if the decoration does not look, do not be deceived, it is indeed a restaurant / canteen kitchen quality Asian. Especially since this one is entirely elaborated on the spot and in generous portions.

You will have the opportunity to eat well for a particularly sweet addition, although at this price, it will not always be too much to ask the waitresses.

Beware, however, because if the restaurant is good, places are particularly popular, and with such crowds at noon as at night, the wait can be long.

Cheap eats here and we actually ate here twice during our 12 day stay in Paris. Both times we wanted to eat at Art du Ravioli but twice it happened to be a Wednesday so they closed. Chez Shen is beside it so we tried it.

My favorite was their garlic pork noodles at 5 euros, cold boneless chicken feet, sweet and sour spare ribs with malt vinegar. We also tried their eel with chives and sprouts. The eel we didn't care for but the chives and sprouts were good.

We would definitely return if craving for some cheap Chinese food but seating is not that comfortable.
