Still the go-to spot in Kunming for freshly cooked food, great drinks and great people in a convenient location. Congrats on your recent expansion.


Really expect a brew pub to offer more than one beer.........c'mon guys!


The place feels like home. They put a lot of attention to every detail. The owner is this sweet lady from Louisiana. You can definitely feel the southern hospitality here. We ate here for Thanksgiving and it felt like I was visiting my grandparents with all the fixins. Food was so good. Try the meat pies. Tastes like home. Also, one of the best bathrooms I've ever used in China :)


Classy ambience, food tastes good, nice presentation, good service and it seems a great place for whiskey tasting.


I tried the service and the pizza. The whole point of offering pizza delivery is to order at the last minute when you don't feel like cooking or have nothing around - so most customers expect convenience.

Coming from the US, the pizza and the service is one star. However, I gave this place 2 stars because I might have lived here too long and have adjusted my standards. It's hard to find proper delivery places with Western food. This is as close as it gets. And when winter comes around and no one wants to go outside, this is all we have - kind of beats out the competition. The pizza tastes like any Chinese place that makes pizza (it's not amazing but edible). I'll probably use their service again when it snows.

I have to add this bit. They delivered my pizza one hour late. But I live way inside a university so it was hard to find. Anyhow, I know in the USA you can order amazing pizza and have it delivered to your door in less than 30 minutes. But you have to lower your standards in China. Don't kid yourself.


I go here about two times each month. The steaks are perfectly cooked to order and the portions are generous, whether ordering a salad, pasta or hamburger. One small quibble would be the crumbly hamburger buns, but that isn't enough to lower the rating. Great place.


Called the number provided on a Friday at 2:15PM while a 10% discount was advertised "on Friday and Saturday" (listed in GoKunming specials).

A Chinese person answered the 'English' phone number in Mandarin then explained in broken English that you need to order 3 hours in advance. (Subtext: As their business is so slow)

Grumble. False advertising. Waste of time. Seems 100% Chinese run. Probably bad pizza.
