The Guardian (2010) “There’s an old-fashioned zinc bar, and an ancient vaulted cellar transformed into a dining room…The cuisine is a mix between exotic fusion – imagine whelks with wasabi mayonnaise – and traditional rural food…”

Le Figaro (2008) “…cinquantaine de vins plutôt nature mais sans excès…de simples assiettes bistrotières et des tartines généreuses à partir de bons produits…”

L’Express (2008) “…la maison cueille ses fromages, sa cochonnaille, son andouille fumée au lard ou ses sardines millésimées chez quelques pointures d’artisans. Aucun danger non plus côté cave, bio-naturo-dynamique.”

Alexander Lobrano (2012) “I’d say that if you were only going to go to a single Chinese restaurant in Paris, it should be Les Delices de Shandong…”

L’Express (2011) “… anguille ou crabe sautéau piment, soupe de raie mijotée et tofu, vermicelles au porc mijoté, raviolis vapeur aux légumes, au porc, au boeuf ou aux crevettes… Les mets jouent l’équilibre parfait entre exotisme et authenticité, dépaysement et excellence…”

Le Figaro (2008) “Il en faut plus pour effrayer la clientèle à 95% asiatique qui attaquera ensuite avec plaisir des intestins de porc frits ou des langues de canard… Optez de votre côté plus prudemment pour les remarquables pousses d’ail sautées au porc…”
