I always visit Lao Tseu at least once, but often more, when I visit Paris. It is cosy and chic family run Chinese restaurant on the Blvd. St Germain. The food is lovely and excellent wine by the glass. A tad pricey but I guess...that's due to the location ... I love the interior too. Am always surrounded by delightful French families having lunch or supper. The food is delicious too.More

Genuine, quality Chinese food, in a very nice environment with kind a efficient service. The rolls are excellent and the duck was great. Value for money more than acceptable considering the address. I’ll be back.

So happy to find Chinese food in this upscale neighborhood that is made from fresh, high-quality ingredients. Not too expensive, and the servers are friendly and hard working. I'll be back!

I love Chinese food and eat it often in my world travels. This is our first time in Paris and after reading TA reviews decided to give Lao Tseu a go - and glad we did! I had the hot and sour soup and it...was one of the best I’ve ever had. My girlfriend had the shrimp wonton soup and said it was just “ok”, but she prefers the pork wonton style soup. For our mains we shared the fried noodles with shrimp, Cantonese style fried rice with pork and hot plate beef in pepper sauce. All three were fantastic! The beef was a touch spicy which is perfect for me and my girlfriend who normally doesn’t like much spice enjoyed it as well. Service was quick and very friendly and the atmosphere is clean and welcoming. We loved Lao Tseu and will definitely return if we’re ever in Paris again, which we hope to be!More

We really enjoyed dining at Lao Tseu. The food was delicious. In fact so much so that we ate there twice during our stay. The service was friendly and attentive. The cost was very reasonable. We each ordered a dish and shared around the table....The steam dumplings are awesome. The shrimp spring rolls were the best we have ever had. I highly recommend trying Lao Tseu during your stay in Paris.More

We were last here about 1 1/2 years ago and found the food a step above and well worth the visit. Not so this time. As mentioned previously the restaurant is small and they really squeeze the tables very clooooose! The service is still efficient...but a degree of what one could call cordial. As for the food, either our taste buds have changed or the food has changed and doesn't resonate like it did before. In any event, while it is reasonable priced I will think twice before returning as there are probably better alternatives with this cuisine, especially in Paris.More
