This really is a must try place. The dim sum and bento boxes are absolutely delicious. It’s our first night in Paris and we will definitely be eating here again. Very friendly, outstanding service, great wine and good prices. Everything you want in a restaurant.

Best meal we’ve had in Paris. All the appetizers are amazing. The service was very good, which Is odd for Paris. The kitchen is in the open so you get to watch the expert chef. So good.

We were made very welcome at Foodi Jia-Ba-Buay (I nearly got put off by the Foodi bit of the restaurant name, but glad I wasn't!). The food and service were excellent. Definitely worth a visit if you are anywhere nearby.

Opera / Bourse
The neighbourhood around Opéra and Bourse is a belle

and mass-market art-nouveau entertainment. Here,
modern day workers continue to take advantage of the
legacy that nobility and finance left in the 19th
century. Brightly-lit brasseries, theatres, and
cinemas sit side by side with French bistros
predominating in one area and Japanese restaurants in
