haaahhhhh, yes... a pertinent question indeed.

i just visited Kunming from Shanghai, and while i enjoyed some Makyeame, it doesn't quite scratch where it itches... and i reckon the lack of "decent indian" food puts a city pretty much into the "unliveable" category.

at the airport my interest was piqued by the number of indians i saw... this made me wonder about trade/tourism between yunnan and india, indian expats living in kunming and the likelihood of an indian restaurant showing up in the spring city sometime soon... here's hoping...

cheers, Mike - i'm well impressed by the 200 renminbi month... how is that possible? that's 3 kuai 33 fen a meal (assuming 2 meals a day and 30 days in the month)

are you sure you're not just talking up your ol' china hand credentials? :)

can anyone chip in on rent etc?

hi - i'm currently based in Shanghai, but i'm thinking of moving to Kunming to pursue a more laid back way of life :)

what do people think i should budget per month, all in, given that i want to be pretty comfortable?

"while praying they retain their own character and culture"

Their own culture? I think not. I think aspects of their own culture were supplanted by 'helpful' Christian missionaries.

On a less angry-about-how-Christianity-homogenised-the-world-with-the-aid-of-fairy-stories note, if teach => taught, why not preach => praught?

possible. go all the way through the gorge in one day, sleep in Daju. your cut off will be the ferry - so nail the operating times of that in advance. you might need your running shoes.

i'm no expert photographer, but i was taught to keep my horizontals horizontal... that photo, presumably an official one, makes me feel like i'm already in a plane.



no-one's reviewed this place for nearly 3 years! i think i know why: it's solid. a bit boring maybe, but they get the job done: food on the table in good time, attentive staff, wide selection of items. the 'Prague Breakfast' is a fine feed, still good value after the recent price increase.


i joined friends here on the weekend. they were getting food and playing a game. the pizzas looked great, but my friends advised me to avoid them, saying they tasted bland.

having made a selection, it took 20 minutes for the staff to tell me that my choice was no longer available. as my friends had nearly finished their game, we then all took our business elsewhere.

helpful advice:

- if someone arrives, give them a menu

- sort out the beer selection

- if i speak to you in Chinese, speak back to me in Chinese


i've recently rediscovered this place. it's a little hit and miss, but i have to say that with a little experimentation, you can find some quality food here. while not perfect, the vindaloo is the best i've had.


i first sampled the Silver Spoon burgers a few weeks back - not bad at all, though i was unconvinced that they were 1/2 pound. another visit yesterday, and this time i was persuaded... definitely a fat burger. i was very happy with my cheese and bacon burger. diners with large appetites, be warned - you'll need a side of something to make a meal - the burger is just a burger - no fries.
