Have been several times to the other location, this time we tried the branch in the French Concession. Very crowded, and dark, but able to get a table without a wait. The food came in odd order, appetizers came after entrees, and one fish dish tasted really off. We sent it back, but unsure if they understood, as they suggested it was the cilantro, not the fish that effected the flavor. Didn't receive one item we ordered, but gave up and left. Asked the hostess about getting a taxi afterward and she suggested we just walk a while. The streets were quite empty by this hour and it was several blocks before we finally found something. Since its so popular with visitors, would be nice if they had a better arrangement to call for taxis. Still will try next time, but back to Bund location.

Great food and bar, try to make reservation as early as possible to get table on 2nd floor. Bar on 3rd floor is a great place before or after meal.

A little ironic, but this really was "lost heaven" for my husband as we literally got lost trying to find the restaurant... We got incorrect directions, which we gave our taxi driver leading us on a wild goose chase. However it was all worth it! The restaurant has terrific ambiance and gorgeous decor. Whether you want to go with friends or on a romantic date, this place is amazing! Although waiters speak very little English, the service was great. There were many dishes to choose from - menus had accurate pictures with English translation - each dish was as delicious as the next. The Yunnan style cooking was more 'western' in its taste that other restaurants we had tried. There is also a really lovely bar on the bottom floor with heavenly couches, and beautiful water features. Just a pity they close so early, we would have stayed longer if we could.

The setting is great, always take visitors here. A drink before dinner, in the cozy sofas at the bar, is to recommend. The food is also good but if I want good Yunnan food I rather go else where.

I find this place is really set up for western people, over 50% of people who was there are westerners....the food is okay but does not really impress me at all with its price.....I won't recommend this place if you wish to have a real chinese meal.
