Le Thé is a real and authentic gem in the hip Quartier des Bains. The small Chinese restaurant offers a big variety of tasty dumplings, small salads and other typical Chinese dishes. My friends and I usually order a couple of different dishes to try as many new dumplings as possible. As the name suggests, the restaurant also has a huge selection of teas. My favorite is the Rose Ice Tea.
But it does not just stop at dumplings and tea, Le Thé also prepares great desserts. I did not really know a lot about Chinese desserts before but at Le Thé I was introduced to extremely tasty small cakes with green Tea, jasmine tea, green beans and so forth.
The word that describes Le Thé best is indeed “cozy”. This also means that there is not a lot of space – I am not sure if more than twelve people can fit in at once. But do not be discouraged if you do not get a table the first time and try again: Le Thé is definitely worth the wait.
