I once saw an article on this site which reported that there was an organic farm growing basil in Yunnan.

So what i want to ask is does anybody know where you can find fresh basil in old kunming?

Was recommended this restaurant by some Malaysian friends and it did not disappoint. Still working my way through the menu but the things I've tried like the curry laksa, Hainan chicken rice, Har Mee (prawn stock noodles), BBQ pork rice, rendang curry chicken and Acar (pickled salad) all hit the spot with authentic, well rounded flavours. Not only is the food good but it's all served in a meticulously clean and comfortable environment.

Finally some decent Malaysian/Singaporean food in this town. Please don't disappear!

Ordered a cheese cake for my birthday, and I have to say that it was one of the best I've ever had for the occasion. Quality ingredients and super fresh.

As You Like knows how to bake!

On a cold Sunday night there was just nothing more satisfying than having a proper wood-fired pizza, a greek salad, a bowl of pumpkin soup, and a big glass of house red all wrapped up in a snug and cosy environment. Keep up the good work lost garden.

Accidently fell into the all-you-can-eat weekend buffet last Friday night after being told that the wait for the hotpot restaurant next door was over an hour. Hesitant at first to pay the 88 RMB for fear of bitter disappointment after visiting several 'A'-typical chinese/western buffets prior, however being hungry and cold was left will little option. The food on the first walk of the buffet seemed like the usual fare, although it was the oddities that caught me. Mini hamburgers, boccocini cheese, prosciutto on melon, curried crab, a selection of dim sum, minestrone soup, real bread with butter, 4 types of sashimi, a good variation of sushi, lots of desserts, percolated coffee, and my personal favourite, the really well roasted and carved on the spot Australian beef with a plonk of Dijon on the side. The interior is not my thing but done well none the less, however having what appeared to be the head chef in the dining room calmly directing the action, along with a touch of kitsch in the live piano player made up for any criticism I might have held. Bargain price, where oddly - I left feeling that in some way I had ripped them off.

A gem of a restaurant in Kunming.
