Paris is a cosmopolitan city that attracts tourists from all over the world. It is also a city in which many communities from all over the world live together. In particular, the thirteenth arrondissement of the French capital is home to a famous “Chinatown”. However, the best Asian addresses are not all located in this corner of the City of Light, far from it. It is therefore possible to find a corner of Asia in Paris in the ninth arrondissement.


Do you like egg rolls, lemongrass beef and Chinese nougat more than anything else? You’ll find what you’re looking for in the ninth arrondissement of Paris. This one indeed gathers very good establishments where you can taste delicious Asian dishes. Here are some of them which will make you travel all over the continent.


At Yoom Martyrs, rue des Martyrs, you can enjoy the greatest specialities of Cantonese cuisine, with grilled ravioli, baozi buns or other tasty dimsums. These assortments of dishes in small portions will allow you to taste a maximum of recipes without panicking your scales.


In Tashi Tagyé, in Richer Street, it is Tibetan cuisine that is in the spotlight. Less common than its Chinese, Indian or Thai counterparts, it nevertheless deserves to be known. More rustic because of the rigour of the climate which limits the number of cultivable plants, it remains very tasty and is also very affordable.


For sushi fans, the Japanese restaurant Ao Izakaya offers a trendy setting with an equally modern cuisine. Voted best Japanese restaurant in 2018, its dishes are stunning both to the eye and to the taste buds.


At the other end of Asia, it is Turkey that opens its arms to you in the Sizin restaurant on Saint George Street. The tasty cuisine is prepared with fresh products that are very popular with customers. It is better to book before coming to make sure you can be served.


It is therefore possible to take a culinary tour of Asia while staying in a Parisian arrondissement. And it would be a shame to miss it as the addresses are so worth the detour.

If you want to organize your trip to Asia in Paris, you’d better find accommodation in the ninth arrondissement. La Cadet Résidence also offers studios and apartments with all the comforts to make you feel at home during your stay.

Perfectly located near this Asian island in Paris, its main advantage is to offer large spaces to come with family or friends but also greater freedom than a hotel to feel perfectly at ease in your holiday accommodation.
