Cheap, cheerful Chinese whose low prices belie the quantity and quality.
Noisy and crowded, with tables sandwiched together and large portions of food it’s hard not to guzzle and slurp down, this Chinese – along with its mother restaurant in Place du Tunnel – is a great place to go with a bunch of friends for a casual, cheerful and (very importantly in this city) cheap lunch or dinner. The vast menu includes Chinese classics that are authentic in flavour – lemon chicken, black bean dishes, noodle soups, a sweet and sticky crunchy beef, steamed and fried dumplings and a particularly head-spinning spicy beef (though you can ask for it less spicy, if you can’t take it). Portions are huge, so it’s best to order a few things to share, but if you do over-order you can ask for a doggy bag and take it home with you. Given the portion sizes, the low prices are remarkable. But take cash – they don't accept plastic.
