This location is the original one and it's the more intimate one. The food is of the same high quality and hands down it is the best Chinese restaurant where to enjoy pressed duck and spicy Pekinoise soup in Paris. The humble exterior belies the cozy atmosphere you'll find inside where the generously proportioned tables comfortably seat parties of two, four and more. The plates are also of generous proportions and one order is enough to share among two to four people. The restaurant is particularly well-known for its fish but the duck, pressed or in a honey-ginger sauce is a favorite of regulars, too. This restaurant is owned and operated by a husband and wife team and the care they take in service and choice of quality products shows.
- Asian: "Lunch does a brisk business with regulars and business folk from the nearby Étoile, Place Ternes and Porte Maillot. This location is smaller than their newer location just off the Champs, but what you sacrifice in space, you gain in cozy intimate comfort. This restaurant is husband and wife owned."
- Best for Asian Because: With the recent glossy gastronomic Chinese restaurants popping up here in Paris, this restaurant remains authentic, high-quality and warmly welcoming.
