Nice colonial buildings

Do not have too high expectations. There is a cluster of historical buildings but it would be hard to recognise a railway station . Go up the main house staircase and you will see some old photos. Luckily there is a 10 m long old track in the garden. You can dine al fresco or in the "Tiffany... read more

There is no problem to arrive this restaurant. Perhaps I got a taxi who know this address. I was actually expecting to see more of a railway station, but not. The building is beautifully built. The service is good, I ordered 5 dishes for 2, we managed to finish. The white carrot soup is beautiful without the carrot pungent taste.... More

I have visited gare du sud in June. Firstly it was hard to find, but then saw a wedding and knew this would be the place (anyway added Google maps position). Food was prepared really fast and was good. Had some spicy beef (45 yuan), crab soup with tofu (28) and "draft" beer (15). Overall it was too much food... More

The 1910 is worth it, but it leaves something to be desired when it comes to service, as other reviewers have also noted. First, getting there. It is to the east of the East Pagoda in central Kunming, off Chongshan street and south of Houxin Jie. Most reviews say it is off an alley but that gives a misleading impression... More

This is an excellent restaurant in Kunming. During a recent holiday in the city we dined here twice and it was excellent both times. Try the t-bone with pepper and chilli, roast pork with pear, noodles (of course) and the duck here is very good as opposed to mediocre in most other places in the city. The Yunnan red wine... More

Make sure you try the mushroom pastry parcels and the cheapest red wine, the bordeaux, was very good indeed for 160 RMB. Well worth getting a private room (book and be there before 6.30pm), if you don't want to have to loud neighbours. Service wasn't great, but adequate. 3 of us ate extremely well for 250 RMB with an extra... More

This place is actually several adjacent buildings including an old train station in which we were eventually seated. The blue walls were stained, the menu grubby, the wait-staff untrained, the service sporadic. The food when it finally arrived was actually good including a plate of sliced roasted meats with pork, local ham, pigeon and swan (yes, swan!). Somewhat pricey. Best... More

We arrived at 4 pm, couldnt order about half of the dishes because it's the chef's siesta between 2 and 4:30 pm. Would've been nice to have known before we were seated. Attitude was overall careless and slow, sometimes even ignoring my questions the first time i asked. Big restaurant, french style decor. Food was quite nice, prices of dishes... More
