Reviews for Yunnan Kitchen

'Chinese food" was once understood as five, interchangeable greasy dishes and a side of fried rice. That; however, is beginning to change and it's restaurants like Yunnan Kitchen that are behind the shift. Named for the Yunnan Province of China, which borders Vietnam, Laos, and Myanmar, the dishes at Yunnan are heavily influenced by the cuisine of its neighbors. Instead of the typical beef and broccoli, expect unique dishes like lamb meatballs, chrysanthemum salad and wood ear mushrooms with lily bulbs. You can still find fried rice, except here it comes with custom-cured Salumeria Biellese Chinese sausage.

Chinese, Thai and American Indian will live in harmony in your happy belly after coming here. Located in the gritty, hip LES, this charming and romantic restaurant is the perfect place to bring the one you love... without breaking your bank.

Mouthwatering mushrooms, salty noodles, spring greens, and Chinese sausage fried rice await you at this hip, modern Lower East Side take on Yunnan province's fusion-influenced food. Skip the chrysanthemum greens -- while an interesting flavor, absolutely nothing comes with them except a sesame dressing and a high price tag.


This kitchen produces regional Chinese food of uncommon quality and authenticity -- nothing like the take-out "Hunan" dreck frequently to be found on the menus you find slipped under your doorstep.

So it may not be authentic Yunnan fare, but the food is good. Recs: the tofu ribbon salad and the spicy chicken. The Crossing Over Bridge Noodles is another one of their signature. It's assembled and mixed in at the table.


Funky upscale 'hood - try the shrimp & eat them shell in all, the dressing on the chrysanthemum salad was over the top.
