Tucked down a narrow alley in a residential part of the 11th arrondissement, Chez He looks like an ordinary Asian restaurant until you venture inside and see the big-screen TVs showing kids playing in the downstairs games area, and parents enjoying some down time, one eye on the screens, the other on dishes like steamed dim sum, and fragrant guo zai, a North-Chinese fondue (thinly sliced meat and vegetables cooked in broth). Not only is the food tasty, if your kids aren’t good in restaurants, it’s a veritable relief to be somewhere you know they’re welcome. The game area is for 2- to 12-year-olds, with a pirate ship, compressed air cannons, a little labryrinth, foosball, and a hall of mirrors. It costs 6€/hour and kids’ menu options (with Asian and Western options that include chicken nuggets and spring rolls) are just 9.90€.
