This is a place to avoid in winter because there is no heating. I wondered why the other guests sitting next to us had their jackets and coats on... We found out the hard way... after an hour despite a warm meal and some hot...jasmine tea we were freezing cold. the service was quite poor, and as a guest you don’t feel welcome. I even wondered whether I was bothering them when I entered the restaurant. The lady at the reception looked at me like I had accidentally ended up there. The waiter gave me that same very puzzled stare and had me repeat twice that I wanted a table for 4. The food was ok although served with abruptness. One of us had ordered a vegetable soup with noodles. It was only 10€ so we did not expect it to be for 4 persons. At the look of surprise on our faces the server got offended although it was really not our intention to complain about it. While we did not say anything he told us in a very rude way that we should have known that such soup was a like a full dish. We tried to have him relax about that explaining that it was ok and as it was not specified on the menu we had not realized but he just went on with the sans harsh tone. The only time we saw him smile was upon our leaving. Not sure what we had done or said but we were definitely not welcomed in that place. I would definitely recommend tourists to avoid it and leave it to the people working in the area and who are used to come everyday for lunch. As a non local who wants to enjoy some nice Asian food near the Opera house, by all means pick another restaurant. That will save you a cold and keep you in good health and mood 😀More

After a couple of days’ French food, we were looking for a chinese restaurant to satisfy our cravings. The Opera Mandarin fits the bill perfectly. The food is authentic and delicious. The owner and the waitress are very friendly. The price is also very reasonable....We will be back next time in Paris.More

Food was just OK. Service was OK also. Price was over what I would have expected. Place was almost empty on a Tuesday night in late September at 8pm.

Stay away is all I gotta say.. tourist rip off. The fried rice was extremely plain and barely had any flavour. The cashew chicken was super slimy and gross. And worst of all, I was stuck on the toilet for ages!

They tried to be friendly, but that’s where it ends. Communication was horrible. Food prices where too high. Worst chinese food I’ve ever had in my life. Please save your time and cash and go somewhere else. Paris has allot more to offer than this...trap!More

My wife and another couple have been traveling in Europe since 07/10 (with 14 day cruise included) with another 6 days before we fly home to NJ and they to CA. My poiny here is, the Opera Mandarin was a passing it on the street...choice and we went in. This had to be one of the best, if not the best dining experience since we landed in Europe several weeks ago. Tired of full meals, we decided to order 4 items and share them. We had the Lemon Chicken, Pork Fried Rice, Pork Chop Suey, and Pork Spare Ribs. Mmmmmmm Good all around - the service and, especially the price was excellent. Too bad it is 3,649 miles (with the Atlantic in between) or we would certainly make this a regular dining option.More
