17 Yummy Asian Restaurants in Paris – Our Best Addresses

Looking for different tastes and flavors? You will be spoiled! My selection of the best Asian restaurants in Paris opens the doors to an exceptional world of taste. Chinese, Japanese, Thai, Vietnamese, Korean or Indian, here is la crème de la crème of Asian food.

First, let’s locate these restaurants on a map:



Chinese Restaurants – Authentic Flavors and Traditional Dishes

Trois fois plus de piment

184 rue Saint-Martin, 3rd district

This restaurant serves food from Sichuan, a region in the southwest of China that is famous for its hot peppers.

The name of the restaurant, literally “Three Times More Pepper” says it all: once you have chosen what you want to eat (mainly noodles – the restaurant was awarded “Best Noodles in France” by the Fooding guide in 2016), the waiters ask how much hot pepper you want on a scale from 1 to 5.

Do not overestimate yourself: level 2 is already very hot! If you have sensitive taste buds, you can ask for level 0.

The menu is quite small, but there is something for beef lovers, pork lovers and vegetarians too!

Price: dishes à la carte between €10 and €13 in average / menus between €13.90 and €17.90

You will relish the surprising and subtle flavors of this small restaurant (no more than thirty covers) serving Xi’an’s traditional cuisine (Xi’an is the capital city of the Shaanxi province, located in the eastern part of China).

One small detail: it is a pity that it is impossible to make a reservation beforehand. However, the service is fast and efficient and the food is really worth waiting for.

If you are in a hurry, or if waiting is simply too much for you, you can come in early at the beginning of the service.

Price: average price between €15 and €20

Shang Palace

10 avenue d’Iéna, 16th district

This fancy restaurant is not just a palace by name: it’s an undeniable fact that dining here can be a bit pricey.

However, the cost is well justified by the high quality and generous quantity of the food, the warm welcome, the elegant decoration, and the efficient service.

Located near the iconic Eiffel Tower, it offers a unique dining experience.

Unlike the previous restaurants, you will not find specialties from one Chinese province in particular on the menu, but subtle flavors coming from all over China.

A note of caution for those who are claustrophobic: the setting might feel slightly uneasy due to the lack of windows and the dim lighting.

Price: menus from €78 to €280, dishes alone from €48 to €328

Japanese Restaurants – Culinary Art and Refined Sushi

Kotteri Ramen Naritake

31 rue des Petits-Champs, 1st district

Once more, the name of this place says it all: it exclusively serves ramen, a traditional Japanese dish made of noodles, broth, pork and egg. Once you have chosen what kind of ramen you wish to eat, the waiter attending you will ask you how much grease you want! It is indeed the grease from the broth that brings all the taste of the ramen.

We strongly advise you to go in advance since there is always people queuing in front of this very small restaurant, and for a good reason: the noodles and the broth (shoyu or miso) are homemade, and the bowls are generously filled but affordable.

Naritake is very popular among the Japanese in Paris, which is an undeniable sign of quality. The waiting time is quickly rewarded, all the more so as the service is fast (bowls are ready in no more than 10 minutes).

A charming little extra is that you can see the cooks, and even eat at the counter in front of them. Let there thus be no doubt that everything is truly fresh and homemade! We therefore strongly recommend this place, which is unanimously considered to be the best ramen restaurant in Paris!

Price: €11.50 for a bowl

5 rue des Batignolles, 17th district

The eating room is very small (there are only a dozen covers), so we strongly advise you to make a reservation if you do not want to risk coming for nothing and missing the excellent sushis and sashimis that are the house specialty.

You will also be able to relish delicious Bentos.

Price: average price of €30

272 rue Saint-Honoré, 1st district


The lucky ones who have had the chance of going to Japan probably know the famous Tokyo restaurant Nodaïwa, which was funded by the end of the Edo era (1603-1867) and has been run by the same family since then.

Well, you have to know that Paris Nodaiwa really is a satellite of this prestigious restaurant!

The house specialty is the unagi: a grilled eel dipped in soy sauce and set down on a bowl of white rice, a simple but delicious meal that is hard to find in France.

Price: from €15 to €60

Surprising dishes mix with classic Korean food such as bulgogi (marinated then grilled beef or pork meat), kimchi (fermented hot peppers and vegetables), and bibimbap (rice, beef and vegetables sauté and seasoned with hot peppers) in this stylish but sober restaurant.

We recommend what the restaurant does best: barbecue grilled meat!

Price: lunch menu at €25, average price of a dish à la carte €40

Thai and Vietnamese Restaurants – Explosion of Exotic Flavors

These two kinds of restaurants meet in the same category because many Thai restaurants serve Vietnamese food and vice-versa.


91 rue de la Tombe Issoire, 14th district


At first sight, this restaurant does not look much – the front window is practically non-existent and the decor is simple. But do not trust appearances – in the kitchen and on your plate it is a real explosion of flavors!

They always welcome the customers warmly, the team is very nice, the service is very efficient, and the price-quality ratio is unmatched.

Plates are generously served and, even if you are already full, you really should try the delicious Thai custard.

Price: average price of €17

51 rue Saint-Sauveur and 38 passage des Panoramas, 2nd district

“Kapunka” means “Thank you”, and that is all the Thai you need to know! Thank you for the good food, thank you for the service, thank you for the reception!

The decor is simple and allows room for refined cooking where the typical Thai dishes can be found: mikati, satay skewers, papaya salad, and pad thai, but also some Vietnamese choices such as the famous spring rolls.

There is a vegetarian option for almost every dish and even some vegan options.

Price: average price of €20

Chào bà

We present to you this time an entirely Vietnamese restaurant, considered by many to be the best Vietnamese in Paris.

We value the efficient service, the warm welcome and the waiters’ teaching skills (they explain what the dishes are for those of you who are not accustomed to Vietnamese food), and above all the quality of the food. Everything is fresh and homemade, even the deserts (which is rare enough to be noted). The spring rolls, for instance, are rolled on demand, which is a token of freshness.

There is a large selection of vegetarian dishes, and the price-quality ratio is very good.

Price: average price of €18

Pho tai

13 rue Philibert Lucot, 13th district

The setting of this restaurant is not the best, but the situation is retrieved by the affordable prices and the food, especially with the pho soups which are the house specialty.

There are vegetarian and vegan options and it is possible to order for takeaway.

Price: average price à la carte of €12

Facebook Page: Pho Tai


Les Trois Crabes

17 rue Claude Tillier, 12th district

The chef of this restaurant comes from the north of Vietnam and learned to cook with her grandmother; so it is genuine traditional Vietnamese cuisine that you may taste in this place.

There is no fuss with the decor in this simple but welcoming place, nor in the way the food is plated up. The portions, however, are generous and delicious.

Price: à la carte dishes from €13.90 to €32
