About us

FRANCE LAROME GROUP was founded in Paris in 2009 with the goal of promoting East-West cultural exchanges through gastronomy.


The original intention of the establishment is to share the passion for food between the East and the West and is committed to the promotion of high-quality products and the culture of China and France. In recent years, we have explored the world’s most cutting-edge dining trends and integrated the exquisite oriental elements into contemporary French cuisine.


FANFAN, our flagship restaurant, located steps away from the Arc de Triomphe in Paris, was on the prestigious recommended list of the "Michelin Guide France" in the same year it opened. Its Chinese brand “Fangfang” ( in Chinese:芳芳 ) is a literal translation of the French word “L’ARÔME”, which means the wild spread of the aroma. We are dedicated to express the gourmet cuisine in a variety of art forms, to combine art and French food culture, to innovate, and to bring elegant French dinner experience with artistic plating and attentive professional service. 


Since the first restaurant created in Paris in 2009, we have created several French cuisine brands: "L'ARÔME”, "FANFAN", "L'ARÔME EXPRESS", "BON PAR L'ARÔME", etc. Our clear marketing positioning, modern marketing model,  persistent pursuit of quality and meticulous execution have assured the rapid and steady growth of our group. 


In 2020, the sub-brand "L’ARÔME EXPRESS" celebrates its 5th birthday and the brand is undergoing an upgrade.  While the French cuisine industry is suffering from the pandemic, our team strives to adhere to quality maintenance and the innovation of our dishes, and to take strictly anti-pandemic measures. Our upgraded offering and décor has won wild praises from our clients.  


At this point of time, a number of new projects are underway, such as the fast-food concept "LES DÉBRIDÉS" in Paris, France and the beachfront "L'ARÔME BY THE SEA" in Phuket island, Thailand. 


Our group also offers professional restaurant management consulting services, covering preparation, operation optimization and sustainable development for external restaurant projects.
