Best lunch i had in Paris: fried noodles with beef, the beef was excellent! Very cheap also and good cantina atmosphere. Really like this place and love the Chinese beer :)
This was the first place i ate while on my last trip. I was craving some asian cuisine and this was right around the corner from my friends place. It is set up for quick in and out which is nice.
I had chicken with garlic and nuts but it was not memorable at all. It tasted like every other chinese dish i have ever had. It was a very busy place though so i imagine the locals enjoy it...not sure.
For what it is (a low-priced, mediocre-quality Chinese restaurant), Chez Shen is not bad. I lived down the street from here for a while, so I used to stop in quite often for a meat bun on the way home or to take out pot sticker dumplings. They have most of the usual Chinese food options, and they are pretty cheap and have long hours. They have tables if you want to eat in, and every time I've been there it has been very busy (many Chinese and some French customers). If you want cheap Chinese food this place is as good a choice as any of the others nearby, but I doubt I would go out of my way to eat here.
Very good and cheap small chinese restaurant. 5 euros a big plat.
This is a chinese place that passes my Chinese restaurant "litmus" test: I only go the places where I can see the cook or the staff peel/clean the veggies [broccoli, bok choy, cabbage, etc.] in front of the customer.
"Chez Shen" combines three activities:
[a] the usual "yet-another-deli-counter", the plague of Chinese cuisine in Paris with its over-priced microwave-zapped plastic containers.
[b] a fast food seating section with very reasonable pricing, about 5 euros par item. If you do not speak Chinese, just look at what the other people are eating and select the most tempting; I remember that some items are in very small quantities, while other are both plentifull and tasty.
[c] a very active "take-out" counter, that combines [b] & [a].
Most attractive of "Chez Shen" is the location, at the beginning of the 3rd district mini-China town of Rue au Maire. I was avoiding this street three years ago because of the frequent ominous "black cars", but now it has been thoroughly cleaned and blocked to cars. I also recommend the market in the middle of the Rue, where you can buy the same fresh veggies cooked by "Chez Shen". I beleive that this place is cash only: correct me if I am wrong.
