A small place tucked away in the Sentier quarter, at the end of the equally attractive foodie-focussed rue du Nil. Basically they offer a number of set Bento-type menus. Lunchtime at weekends they offer a Taiwanese speciality, a Gua Bao menu. This is what we took, and very unusual and delicious it was. The meal consisted of crispy wontons, egg cooked in tea (looked odd, but tasted lovely,) salad and Gua Bao - pieces of pork (there is a vegetarian version) with various things in a doughy bun and covered with a slighly sweet, sticky sauce. I'm not doing it justice there, but it was good! Everything made to order in an open kitchen. To finish a very good list of Green and Oolong teas.
The couple (Franco-Taiwanese?) who run the place are welcoming and pleasant. The atmosphere calm and laid-back. Very, very nice, will visit again.

I like restaurants that offer three or four things and cook and present these dishes very well. Jia-Ba-Buay has four Bento box main dishes that are excellent for dinner. A chicken , fish, beef and tofu dish are offered . We would love to come back again . Thank You

Staff: looks like family owned. Super warm and welcoming staff, very helpful witg order. Takes the time to explain.

The place: small (9 tables) and cosy. Kitchen in the center where u can watch what s going on. Wooden tables. Feels authentic.

Food: fresh, tasty, large portions, very nice indeed! They don't do the brunch anymore. Check out my photos!

Would return anytime!

Limited menu but delicious food full of flavour. Service was exceptional, they translated the whole menu for us. But would be helpful to have an English menu, but cannot fault the food. Food is cooked right in front of you and had a great homely feel.

The food is tasty and freshly prepared, but portions are not too big and menu is a little limited in choice and variety. The restaurant is rather small and service is slow. On the other hand, the owners are very nice and friendly.
