The food was poor to medicore at best with small portions for the price. Service was also poor. The roasted meats were over cooked and dry. When we complained about the duck being poorly prepared and asked for the Director, the staff stated no Director was present. Finally the Director did appear and tried to make amends. By that time...

After cruising around with the car in Chinatown on a rainy Sunday, we finally found a car park. We took the lift up and surprise, we end up in a big lively China restaurant, perfect. We liked the food and atmosphere.

Asian restaurant with good food but slow service. Nice ambient gentle staff and unique asian atmosphere, live musique with very good cambodian orchestra, a trip to asian culture, you eat you dance and you leave with a nice feeling as u have had a visit to indochine by night...

Went there on a sunday at lunch time. The fried rice was not great (though our 2-year old loved it), the roast-duck was not well cut with too many bones, but the dim-sum and shrimp wantan noodle soup were great. Moreover, the service was friendly and super-fast. We were on a tight schedule and Chine Massena delivered exactly what we... More

The restaurant smelled terrible (like a public toilet). Service beyond appalling. Staff and owner aggressive and impolite. Loud atmosphere. Food service slow. They charged us for food we never received. In the middle of nowhere.

While I'd normally consider Chine Massena as merely a good dimsum place, in Paris Chine Massena is a welcome oasis of quality Chinese food in a city of pretty sub-par offerings. You can forget Paris (while truly a beautiful city, try living here for a few years and you'll understand the desire) for an hour or two while chowing down... More

A large and very busy place. The food was good but nothing to really brag about. Due to the large amount of customers they tend to rush you through the meal. Be aware of the roving carts that frequent the tables as they are just trying to upsell some additional food items and you can easily run up a large... More

After a month in France, we were eager for Cantonese food and when we learned about Chinatown being on the metro line at Porte de Choisy. We went and were told Chine Massena was a good place for dim sum. It is a large typical Chinese restaurant that can hold large numbers suitable for banquets and parties so we expected... More

Staying in Place d'Italie / Quartier Asiatique

Neighbourhood Profile
Place d'Italie / Quartier Asiatique
Far off the beaten path, this part of Paris is a forgotten gem worth exploring. Avenue d’Ivry houses Europe's largest Chinatown with great Asian supermarkets and shops, and a thrilling atmosphere around Chinese New Year. Place d’Italie impresses onlookers as soon as they set their eyes on it. Not far, around La Butte aux Cailles, the streets suddenly imitate provincial France and you’ll feel like you’ve been transported. The beauty of these streets lies in their surprises around every twist and turn.
