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.

we used to go to this place every so often for their BBQ pig feet, food are not bad but in general a bit greasy. Today we took our whole family there and had the worst experience ever. First of all, the service were horrible. the two waitresses were so grouchy, never addressed the tables. it took us 45 minutes... More

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

I frequent this place to eat flavourful Yunnan food. We usually order soup, spicy chicken with hot peppers, and a hot and spicy fish dish. I leave sweating all the time. A very good place to eat.

We have eaten here before and enjoyed it. There are two menus, one for "western" Chinese food and one for Hunan style. We have ordered from both menus and never been disappointed. This visit was no different. There were five of us, we had four excellent dishes plus steamed rice, and the bill before tip was about $60 - food... More
