Is there a reason why you refer to this restaurant as Japanese versus Chinese. The name of the restaurant refers to the Chinese words drinking tea or going for dim sum. Adeline takes her inspiration from Chinese gastronomy and worked in Hong Kong. The images of the tea pots are a special type of tea often served before a Chinese meal not a Japanese one.

Hi @francochine, thanks for bringing that to our attention! Definitely our mistake. I adjusted the article to reflect the fact that the influences are indeed Chinese, not Japanese. Thanks for reading!

This sounds like a great restaurant and this pairing menu looks delicious we are always looking for good Asian recommendations in Paris thank-you Krista.

Hi Heather. Did you try calling? I am not sure how far in advance you need to book here . . .otherwise, I would ask if they have a waitlist? Good luck and let us know if you get in! -Erica

Any tips for getting a reservation? We are visiting the first week of December but I did not get organized enough to make one weeks ago.
