Taokan : the trendy Asian that is buzzing in Saint-Germain

Taokan, inside restaurant

Dim sum fans, beware ! Here is the anti Chinese restaurant as you picture it: a trendy venue, an ultra-design decor, a really chic clientele… Everything here has been imagined to break free from the old Chinese restaurant clichés.

You will find no aquarium, no porcelain, no Bouddha statues in this new trendy spot, with a decor that matches the super chic Left Bank style, rather than the ultra kitsch decor we're accustomed to.

At the end of your chopsticks, same deal, the Cantonese recipes are resolutely modernized and yet super light: impeccable noodles, a sublime lok lak beef sprinkled with sesame seeds and a Taokan sweet and sour sauce, or deluxe coconut pearls.

Ideal for a light lunch, a bass filet with soya sauce (28€) or delicious Dim Sum made with scallops and asparagus.

Kudos for : the revisited spring rolls with super light crispy chicken.

For dessert: You must try the chocolate spring rolls (10€), or the surprising green tea crepes (10 €).

 

Opened every day, except for lunch on Sunday

Noon to 2.30pm - 7.30 to 10.30pm
