Mexican-owned and managed, Cacao is the first restaurant in Kunming offering the delicious flavors of Mexico in an elegant environment.
Cacao provides guests with a complete Mexican dining experience beginning with starters such as guacamole and tortilla chips or ceviche, followed by main courses including tacos, burritos, enchiladas, quesadillas and a wide selection of meat and seafood dishes. After your meal, try one of our signature Mexican desserts.
In addition to our delicious Mexican cuisine, we also have a full-service bar featuring fine wines and cocktails from Mexico and around the world.
Our sunny rooftop terrace is one of the best places to enjoy Kunming's blue skies while enjoying a meal or sipping on a margarita or cold beer with friends or colleagues. ¡Salud!
Visited the Restaurant last week and was pleasently surprised with the quality of food and surroundings.
Especially the Beef tacos where excellent, however the portion size was slightly too large for two people consuming other courses as well. ( One should never complain if one receives too much :) ).
Only one thing should improve and that is the quality of Margarithas, as we ordered forzen ones, but received quite lame shaken drinks without any trace of chillines.
All in all, we will be back soon, Great Job!
I learned to love Mexican food in East LA. I guess that is pretty much Tex-Mex. You will not get Tex-Mex at Cacao.
The food is good and the place looks like a fine dining restaurant, which is to say very nice. I went there last week on a hot evening and it was nice to sit outside with a cool breeze.
I had beef tacos and a beef burrito. Although pretty good it was not what I expected. For my taste there needs to be more flavor. Actually, I'd say it was pretty bland.
The tacos were presented nicely but the tortillas were super thin and crumbly so the tacos had to be eaten with a fork. The burrito was good. I brought my own hot sauce so I made it better.
I saw at least two guys that looked Mexican. Service was very good and friendly.
I will go back and while no longer thinking Tex-Mex, I will try some of interesting looking stuff on the menu.
Nicest Western Restaurant in Kunming. Excellent.
Excellent atmosphere, comfortable seating. Staff friendly and attentive. The beef nachos were good with the jalepinos peppers. Quesadillas very good. BBQ ribs tasty. Pina colada good. I would have liked more cheese and sour cream on the nachos though. This doesn't seem to be TexMex. Would like to try some of the soups and salads. Also, the guacamole was not available the evening I went :(
I would definitely go back again to try out more dishes.
Had lunch at the Cacao Mexican Restaurant the other day. I was pleasantly surprised! Friendly service (the Chinese staff even speaks a bit English), nice, big terrace with outdoor seating. Good atmosphere. The only drawback is that the food was a bit "boring". From Mexican Food one would expect a bit more "fire" and spices. They would need to "spice up" in order to attract the local crowd. But over all it was a pleasant experience and a place to go back.
