About us

From Paris to Phuket...

 

FRANCE LAROME GROUP founded in Paris in 2009 is a fast-growing company focusing on operating contemporary-styled restaurants around the globe. Its current footprint covers France, China and Thailand. 

 

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, one of our flagship restaurants, 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. Our clear marketing positioning, modern marketing model,  persistent pursuit of quality and meticulous execution have assured the rapid and steady growth of our group. 

 

At this point of time, a number of new projects are underway, such as the fast-food chain concept "LES DÉBRIDÉS" in Paris, France. Our beachfront restaurant & rooftop bar "L'ARÔME BY THE SEA" has been in operation since May 2021 in Phuket island, Thailand and quickly named as one of the 25 TOP restaurants in Phuket. 

 

"L'ARÔME IN THE SKY” will welcome its grand opening in December 2021.

FANFAN PARIS listed on Michelin Guide

In January 2021, FANFAN PARIS remains listed as one of the restaurants recommended in the Michelin Guide France - the historical glory of FRANCE LAROME GROUP. The opinion of the Michelin Guide: "This young chef creates a fusion cuisine with Asian influences around a menu (with three choices) that obeys the law of the market, products and seasons. All served in a contemporary setting with a room under glass roof. Lunch menus are a bargain, and in the evening the offer becomes more gastronomic."
