  dinner at the China Club
by sue_stone

By co-incidence, on one trip to Paris we happened to be there at the same time as some good friends were, so we decided to meet up for dinner.

They had read about a really good Chinese restaurant that they wanted to try?.it was called China Club, and when I started to research it prior to our trip I discovered that it was actually a pretty hip place to go and that the food was reputed to be excellent.

The evening started with cocktails in the Library Bar on the 2nd floor of the China Club. This was a classy start to a great evening with friends. Service was first class throughout the night.

After drinks we moved downstairs into main restaurant area for what was a pretty special dinner. This was gourmet Chinese food?.probably some of the best (and most expensive) I have had.

Favorite Dish: We started the meal with a selection of spring rolls. Then enjoyed main courses such as Roasted Leg of Lamb with small pancakes & hoi sin sauce; Steamed fillet of Salmon with Chinese mushrooms & ginger; and Steamed Scallops with black bean sauce.

We drank wine and beer with our food.

Desserts we had included Key Lime Pie; Poached pear with honey & ginger; and Lemon Sorbet with Vodka.

If you want to carry on after your meal, there is a nightclub downstairs from the restaurant which also has live music on some nights.

The China Club is a great place, so put your glad rags on and give it a try when you need a break from French Food.

Booking is required?though you may get away without it on quieter nights.
