I am a huge fan of the Lost Garden. I come here often to eat, and as everyone says the pizza is excellent, even for American standards. I also love the gnocchi, Thai chicken salad, soup, and the chicken sandwich. The staff is friendly and accommodating, and the prices are reasonable for the quality.
I also recently stayed here in a dorm room for 10 days and had a great time. The location is excellent, the hotel is quiet, and they really paid attention to details when designing the rooms. The dorm beds are very large and cozy, and there is a ton of storage space around the bottom bunks. The drapes make the beds feel very private. All of the rooms have wifi, and the bathroom was clean and modern.
I have stayed in 6 small hotels/hostels in China and this one was definitely my favorite. And as a Kunming resident, whenever I am craving pizza this is the only restaurant I will settle for! Great job all around.
Environment - excellent 5/5! Great roof top, excellent indoor area, perfect lighting and cosy! I hope your rooms are like this, I will recommend friends to stay!
Food, we had gnochi, Vietnamese salad, mushroom pizza. The Vietnamese salad was the best (lacking some ingredients, but hao chi!), the gnochi was not tasty and tasted like it came from a can or jar or something. Not good.
So I was looking forward to the pizza which apparently is excellent! Well... it wasn't for us. The base is excellent, however we got the mushroom pizza and it had soo much garlic and onion on it, it was pretty much all we could taste. The sauce they use must come from a can or something as it has a metallic preservative taste to it that doesn't add to the flavour. The pizza looked good, but the garlic & onlion overload killed any other taste. We couldn't taste the cheese on it even it was that strong! Definitely no mushroom taste! We didn't finish it.
Make your own sauce (if you already do, change the recipe!). Don't use too much, at times it overloaded the onion and garlic flavour.
A SMALL amount of garlic and onion.
More mushroom or fry the mushroom in a little butter first to bring out the taste.
Perfect base and cheese.
Don't make the pizza topping so thick (you will save money and it will taste better)!
Great shape (loveheart for valentines!) and texture.
So sorry, won't be back for the food for a while, there are much better western places.
The staff are attentive and friendly and bilingual (at least!), however you should WRITE DOWN ORDERS. OK, so you might think its cool not to write orders but forgetting what people ordered is much less cool. A simple order ticket system is needed.
I went there yesterday afternoon with every intention of getting a pizza. But when I got the menu it said very clearly that pizza and pasta are not available until after 5pm (the wood-fired oven has to warm up). Just a heads up to everyone. The brisket sandwich was an awesome substitute for the pizza.
great pizza, great pasta, friendly staff!! Enjoy it every time I go!!
Just had gnocchi in mushroom sauce and a glass of wine for dinner on the balcony in mid-January. Awesome.
