Five times tastier!
Opened in April 2017, this new address is based near the Pompidou Center, and has the specificity to be more “chic” than the first two restaurants. On the spot, the decoration is harmonious and modern, with wooden chairs and tables, and spherical glass suspensions. The restaurant has a second room upstairs and even features a terrace. Regarding the menu, we enjoy the Sichuan flavours present in various dishes along with a choice of vegetarian options. Popular dishes include stewed beef or stewed vegetables with rice and Bao-Zi, those famous steamed Chinese bread rolls stuffed with vegetables, chicken, pork or shrimps. Cinq fois plus also serves delicious desserts and home-made juices, as the Dreamy floatting life with hot pepper, strawberries, tomato and orange. Located not far from the hôtel Mareuil, this place is undoubtedly one of the capital’s best addresses in Chinese gastronomy.

Open from Tuesday to Sunday, from noon to 3p.m. then from 7p.m. to 11p.m.
Closed on Monday.
Stewed vegetables with rice: €10.40 / Stewed beef with rice: €13 / Bao-Zi: from €10 / Dreamy floatting life: €8.50.
