Two days earlier – on Thursday 26 September 2019 – the restaurant was booked out by La Clef Champs Elysees for their official opening.

Mr Zainal Arif MANTAHA.
Situated on 46 rue de Bassano, Imperial Treasure Paris is housed inside La Clef Champs Elysees but has its own entrance. It is just a 2-minute walk from the large Louis Vuitton shop on Paris’s most famous boulevard. The handbag store is in an art deco building built in 1914, two years younger than 46 rue de Bassano which was commissioned by the Hennessy Family of Cognac in 1912.

Executive Chef YU Gang and his team deliver delicious fare including Huaiyang, Shanghainese, Cantonese, and Sichuan dishes. The ever-popular Peking Duck is also on the menu. Yu is from Nanchang, capital of Jiangxi Province, and has 20 years of experience in China and was previously with Pan Pacific Suzhou and Cheng Long Hang Restaurant in Shanghai.

General Manager Lester Fong was parachuted in from Michelin 2-star Imperial Treasure Fine Chinese Cuisine in Huangpu, Shanghai. The Malaysian has been with the Imperial Treasure Group since it was founded in 2004 by Alfred Leung. Such is Fong’s popularity with his clients that he has left behind many fans in Shanghai. He has, on the other hand, already generated a new – and fast growing – following in Paris.
