Kong Restaurant Review

: On the banks of the Seine in an Art Deco building once belonging to La Samaritaine department store, Kong boasts a spectacular view of the river and lovely Left Bank. The surprising décor is an original mélange of contemporary pop art-inspired motifs. In the kitchen, refined world food pleases the stylish patrons who also come here for the happening lounge scene and custom-created sound track.
