A rare pearl among our careful selection of the best addresses right now

Dès que l’on a pénétré dans le restaurant historique de Gaby Didonna (qui a aussi ouvert Ani, depuis), tout près du « Chinatown » lyonnais, on est saisi par les ondulations du plafond signées du designer Xavier Vigne, mais aussi par les troncs d’arbre qui renforcent le côté naturaliste du lieu. Cela crée un contraste excitant avec le contenu des assiettes où s’expriment toute l’histoire d’un chef issu du sérail puisque né dans une famille de restaurateurs sino-vietnamiens. C’est avec sa mère, à la Jonque d’Or, qu’il a pris goût aux fourneaux, c’est chez Léon de Lyon, étoilé à l’époque, puis chez Georges Blanc qu’il a fait ses armes. De tout ça, il a fait une identité où fusionnent les influences, dans des plats comme la joue de bœuf braisée à la purée de shiitakés, la crème de carotte et poireau aux ravioles de crevettes au gingembre et wakamé, l’agneau de lait et panko croustillant ou l’éclair Matcha et œil du dragon.

    Everything I expected from the reviews already available online, and more. Delicious dishes, original and very refined. Several taste and text combinations were completely new to me. Generous portions but yet we left feeling light and ready for a night of truly intense night of new love making. Miraculous!

    There were a few really delicious and clever dishes as the chef perfectly blends Asian flavours and elements into the cuisine. However, some dishes needed more flavour or preparation - our duck breast had a string of tendon running through the entire piece of protein which made it hard to eat. Wait staff is very friendly and tried very hard to service in English but couldn’t describe many elements of our dish. Ventilation is poor at Upstairs of the restaurant, the fumes of cooking, particularly of fish would seep through and affect the experience

    We loved the dinner, which had many tasting surprises. The locations is very nice. There was only one thing which could have been done better, especially regarding the price of Euro 100.- for the menu: we were asked to have an aperitiv and ordered one. Only after, when looking at the menu, we realized that a glass of Champagne was included in the menu. The waiter could have mentioned this before asking for the aperitiv. We would not have ordered an aperitiv then. And we had to pay for the aperitiv of course. That's the only thing that disturbed a little bit. But I would visit this place again.

    We ordered two 100eu and two 45 and both menus were amazing, though the 100eu was actually mind blowing, very good value!!
