First of all, start by calling to reserve (absolutely mandatory), then find the little reastaurant and make your way through the 5 tables. Once you're there, sit down and start screening the big menu. There are dim sum, rice, rice pancakes, steamed bread, etc. Everything is fresh and delicious, and the small space creates an enjoyable atmosphere. Highly recommended!

We visited Le The on Wednesday lunchtime. Prior to our visit I had picture in my head as to what to expect, previous reviews mentioned a rude lady with attitude, not sure if she was the same one but she seemed quiet friendly throughout our meal and she had a full house to serve. Also the location wasn't that difficult... More

a little restaurant not far away from the main square Plainpalais serving really tasty dim suns! though tiny, the restaurant has a unique charm and will take you to Asia for the time of a meal or a tea, for which the choice is humungous! a very decent price/quality ratio. That put it simply: just go!

this place never fails to deliver the most authentic dim sum in town! yes, the owner/waitress can come off as a bit rude, but the dishes speak for themselves! the place is tiny but you can always order dishes by phone for take-out.

My husband and I went here later in the evening (around 9PM) or so, and the tiny little restaurant was already very full. We were lucky enough to get a table, but getting to your chair can sometimes mean making other customers move. It's a tight little spot. We also felt very heated as the kitchen and packed dining area... More

Their Dim sums are delicious, they are fresh and there is a lot of choice! The only downsizes are the space (it's too small so you'll need to book way in advance) and the service (the restaurant is owned by a couple. The husband does the cooking and the wife serves but she has quite a bad attitude... I guess... More

The dim sums are good, fresh and innovated and the place could be great if it wasn't that the service is rude and off putting. It's a shame as it's the ideal place for a small dinner tête à tête. They also sell little tea pots which are lovely.

The food is not exceptional but good enough for me. However, the place is a bit hard to find as it is extremely small. I spent 10 mins walking around the vicinity before finding it.
