    Good atmosphere, minimalist but sophisticate decoration, intimate and relaxing setting. Meal is good, but as it was a set menu, without originality.

    Never disappointed ever. So consistently good and they are one of the few Chinese restaurants that propose to serve dim sums not all at the same time!!

    For a restaurant with so much recognition I felt disappointed. I ordered four kinds of dimsum ( which was my entire meal) and all of them were served at once and I had to rush through them as dumsum dries up fast. The shanghai dumplings should have broth inside - traditionally you would have to be careful not to burn your mouth with the hot liquid. These were lukewarm and dry. The lobster and apple and the chicken and asparagus dumplings had no distinctive flavor. I was very surprised by the lack of quality.

    Adored this restaurant. We loved the dim sum but all of the small plates were sooooo good.

    We have been to this restaurant many times. The food is delicious and the service is exceptional. We visit Paris about 5 times a year and this restaurant is near our hotel so it is great for an after work meal.

    Not that many choices in the 6th for Chinese food obviously, however given the pricing of what is being served, the owner could bother to put a little more food on the plates. Food is fine and rather authentic, yet, even in Shanghai, famous for small portions compared to other provinces in China, you get more for the money. No need to say that bill comes here about at least double if not triple what the same and more authentic food would cost in Belleville at a real and humble Chinese restaurant. Yet again, we’re near St Germain dès Près and we all understand that real estate here is more valuable.

    I am often in Paris alone on a Sunday evening and this place is just perfect for that. The staff is very welcoming. The food is delicious.

    This is our second visit to this restaurant ... We awaited their reopening after their summer break with anticipation. We were not disappointed. The food was delicious and the service was excellent! This restaurant will always be on our list whenever we visit Paris!

    Not as authentic as we like our Asian food to be, but the dishes are alright and we enjoyed the ambiance of the restaurant. The mango with sticky rice was exceptionally good though!

    Cantonese restaurant with a highly original and very tasty menu that I've never seen elsewhere. The atmosphere is very zen, almost Japanese.
