Likafo Chinese restaurant on Avenue de Choisy- Paris

As I have read so many positive posts about this place, and as we have been going there for so many years now I believe I should mention our latest experience!

We had lunch there on October 1st. It’s almost 1PM, yet the place was empty save for 4 tables. We have noticed that for a while now. The shrimp raviolis were just fair, the broth was tasteless. Worst yet the roast duck in my roast duck noodle was bad, and by that I mean it had bad taste in addition to the fact there’re 7 pieces and 4 of them were just bones and worthless pieces which you would just throw away if you’re serving roast duck! So bad so that I ended up with a stomach ache, had to take some medication, etc. and yet I only ate a piece and a half! When I made a remark to the young waitress that they should be careful about the quality of the food lest they lose more customers, she showed her bad temper by banging the dishes around! No, this is not a new waitress. She has been there for about 3 years now and she knows us as regular customers.

Over the past year we have noticed some changes in Likafo. The staff has dwindled down to only one young lady. The rest are family members of the associate(s). We have not seen one of the associates for a long time now (we go there quite often). Other staff members are gone (laid off?) One of their signature dishes is “steam chicken with sesame and ginger sauce. It no longer is what it used to be. The portion is smaller and so they cut it into very small pieces to fill up the plate. Based on the fact that restaurant is more and more empty I guess other people have figured out its decline before we do!
