As many other reviews and the title suggested, this restaurant is very specialized in Yunnan dishes, which means that every dish is spicy to a certain degree. If you are very used to Yunnan dishes, or loves spicy food, this is probably one of the best Chinese restaurants to go. On the other hand, since it is very specialized, people... More

A delicious Chinese meal that is not traditional North American Chinese food. Service was excellent with a wide and varied menu. The interior was comfortable and allowed for private conversations. Went on a Tuesday evening and arrived at 8:00. The restaurant was still busy. Would definitely recommend a meal there. 4 dishes, sticky rice and three beer and including tip... More

The style of cooking seems lighter than typical chinese food in Calgary, not so rich & probably healthier, but takes getting use to...

Their spicy dishes a quiet unique, not to spicy but very flavoured. You can still taste the original flavour from the food themselves instead of getting your mouth burned with chilies and seasonings. Prices are acceptable too.

This is a restaurant focusing on Yunnan Chinese cuisine. This province is close to Mongolia, and there is a fair bit of heat to all their dishes. The staff are helpful and knowledgable.the restaurant is bright and clean. And the food! Wow... Very extensive menu, with pictures, very helpful in ordering. Yum!

This is one of the few authentic Chinese food places in Calgary. I also like Yunnan Couisine for the love of mushrooms (many dishes are cooked with mushroom). Especially liked the foil baked pork hoof. The place is packed for dinner. I called the previous day to make a reservation and thought we had one. However, they said I didn't.... More

We had a wonderful meal. The portions were very large the flavor was fantastic. We like it spicy and it sure was. The fish soup was unreal. The waitress made some great suggestions. We will definitely be back for more delicious food.

Very authentic Hunan food. Spicy dishes. This restaurant gets crowded very quickly. Go early or late. Service is great and food is good on a cold day.

This restaurant was recommended to me by a Chinese International Student and I have been there twice. Don't expect deep fried out of the bag Chinese food as this restaurant uses very fresh and unique ingredients. The atmosphere is nothing special and looks like at one time this was a Greek restaurant with artificial grapes still hanging from the walls... More
