We found this nice little asian restaurant and it was a good one! Cozy place, nice service and good food (54 euros for two). If in the area, we'll come back again.

Had a family get together and were treated to the best Chinese food we have had anywhere. Friendly attentive service. Difficult to single out a particular dish for praise as everything was perfect!

If you want a break from French cuisine then try this restaurant on Boulevard St Germain. The service is very attentive and the menu is extensive. The food is delicious and there is a great atmosphere. Very relaxing and enjoyable.
