Went here twice on my last visits to Kunming. First time was at night at about closing time. One lady was super helpful and helping us choosing dishes as I can speak Chinese but cannot read. We ended up with their speciality dish of lettuce with "mince meat" wrap and an eggplant dish. Both were excellent and delicious. The dinner was fairly pricey for China (our meal was close to ¥100) but the people who run the place really care about healthy food and some of the vegetables they serve come from their own organic garden. Upon our return to Kunming we decided to check the place out for the lunch time buffet before headed out of town. Boy am I glad we did. The spread was lovely with 8 dishes to choose from ranging from a delicious fake meat rounds to just plain ole stir fried veggies. Best of all they had a choice of at least 5 lettuces (farm to table, organic) to munch on. A much appreciated surprise. They also had a beet juice and limeade to drink. The buffet was only ¥25, with option to add on a hotpot with more fake meat possibilities and myriad of other veggie choices for ¥68. The restaurant was hard to find, but well worth it. The little store on the same level is interesting to check out if you are looking for healthy, organic products to take home.

Pros: Farm to tavle, Organic, Great lunch buffet
Cons: Hard to find (a little), Dinner is a tad expensive for China

Upscale Chinese Vegetarian

Posted on 06 / 19 / 2012

The current description of this restaurant is incorrect. The prices are moderate to expensive by local standards. Dishes are in the range of about 40 yuan ($7 US). Portions are large and you get excellent tea, bread, soup with the meal. The food is definitely not fast food. It is Chinese gourmet vegetarian. That is, it is reasonably delicate; not spicy or greasy. I had a dish with firm tofu, mushroom, broccoli, carrot, and pine nuts in a light sauce. The whole meal was excellent. The menu is all Chinese, but there is a picture of every dish so ordering should be no problem. The dining area is large, clean, and bright. The staff is very friendly. There were a number of Buddhist monks eating there. There is a health food store next to the restaurant. The restaurant has the English name Sino-Agriculture.
The restaurant is on the second floor of the Xingjie Building which is located on the Northwest corner of the intersection of Longjing Street and Wuyi Road (this building does appear on Google Maps). The entrance is behind the building, so go around to the back. You will see an entrance with elevators. The elevators would not take me to the second floor. There is a stairway to the left of the elevators that will take you up. The stairway is dingy, but when you get up there, the second floor looks perfectly nice. Go to the left and you will enter the restaurant. As you walk towards the restaurant, you will see the health food store on the right.

If you need more help finding the place, it is one block East of the Yunnan Art Theater where the Kunming extravaganza is performed every night. The number 5 bus, and many other buses stop at the intersection of Dongfengdong Lu and Longjing Street. It's not far from the Provincial Museum and the Bird and Flower Market. I have been told that they have a buffet on Saturdays and Sundays between noon and 1:30PM, but I can't confirm this.

Pros: large, bright, clean, upscale Chinese vegetarian, friendly staff
Cons: a bit hard to find, a bit pricey for Kunming

not exactly as advertised

Posted on 04 / 02 / 2012

the place is not where the ad says it is, it is on 51 road east of the map location north of the pet market on Dongfeng road on the west side. you have to go around the back and there isn't any fast food that I could see. The price is not what you would call cheap even by western standards. Don't be fooled buy the pics it may look tasty but in reality it isn't I am talking about the potato dish a big let down. The meat sticks are awesome and the tofu dish was not at all bad. The price like I said before is not cheap like advertised. That part was a big let down as the food was not worth what I paid for it except for the meat sticks they are worth going just for that the dumplings are not bad either and not too expensive for a vege jiaoza. The surroundings were nice and the service was good no English spoken everything was hot and fresh which was nice. I just wish the dish that I was looking forward to tasted as good as I thought it would. It was 52 rmb was a a huge disappointment. Anyway if your looking for cheap give this place a miss except for the meat sticks 20rmb dumplings a small plate for 11rmb when you go you will know what I am talking about as far as price goes. NOT CHEAP
