My best advice for (American) first timers in Kunming is to step outside the zagat-rated-US-service-standard box. Quickly! You will enjoy your experience more if you appreciate this place for what it is and what it offers... Sweetly quirky Chinese charm! Yes, the decor is cheesy. You're not in... read more

This restaurant has a great variety from Italian to Mexican (we did not try any Mexican dishes) to Chinese. We ate there several times that included a pizza and different Chinese dishes. The food quality is very good and the atmosphere is nice. The staff was very helpful and pleasant.

Excellent views from the top roof, beautiful interior, waiters speak little english and the menu has a diverse range of menu options from Mexican, Italian and Western. We arrived relatively early for dinner and ordered a mushroom pizza, a bean burrito and morning glory. All three dishes were delicious however they were out of green tea... Nice atmosphere, would revisit.

I came into the restaurant by myself after a long day. I was taken to a table next to the window near a couple. I started looking through the menu when the waiter came to my table and told me I had to be moved. Even though 75% of the tables were empty, the took me to the darkest corner... More

The building is a throwback to French colonial style, and with a nice terrace the place has a great ambiance. I went with a group of eight for lunch. The food came fast, and there seemed to be a fleet of servers there to help. We ordered a mix if Chinese and Western food, with the Chinese fare being the... More

Yes, this is a beautiful place with a nice atmosphere, BUT it is expensive and i got better food in other restaurants, which cost half the price.

When you want to enjoy a lunch or dinner in a nice environment, then this is a place to go. The food is excellent, the place is very clean and tidy (even the toilets) and you can enjoy the atmosphere of the laid-back city on the cosy roof terrace. We liked it so much that we went a second time... More
