Reviews of interest

  • Patricia Wells (2011) “Alas, 168 euros poorer and barely sated, we left wondering what this place was all about. Food no better than any Parisian Vietnamese carryout. Rubbery pork dumplings, dipping sauces that tasted like ketchup, tasteless shrimp…”
  • Gilles Pudlowski (2011) “La cuisine fusion, très Indochine sur le mode d’avant et d’aujourd’hui…Raviolis frits à la shanghaïnne ou jian jiao, dim sum superbes, bouillabaisse de lotte façon thom yung, xar xiu de porc noir ibérique (de la pluma ultra-tendre) emballent sans mal…”
  • Alexander Lobrano (2011) “Thick velvet curtains…Hoi An style silk lanterns, floral murals and low softly lit tables was attractive….Main courses were excellent…I loved my Iberian pluma (pork tenderloin) marinated in fish sauce, lacquered in spice…Pity it’s so expensive, or I’d likely go back often.”
  • Emmanuel Rubin – Figaroscope (2011) “…les fantasmes d’une Chine glamour. Décor tamisé tendance Lotus bleu (sans Tintin, Chang et l’opium) et nourritures « exochic » bravement cosmétiques.”
  • François-Régis Gaudry – L’Express (2011) “A chaque clin d’oeil de Lily, ça fait bling-bling. C’est In the mood for Love version Saint-Trop’…La meilleure entrée ? Ces Shangaï jian jiao, des raviolis de porc frits…dont le secret fait toute la différence : ils sont garnis de saucisse de morteau…”
