Yunnan-inspired modern Chinese dinners accompanied by beer, wine & tea in a wood & brick setting.- Google
"Their grilled pork belly is delicious, though, and served on a skewer."
"But if you do end eating here get the lamb meatballs, prawns or congee."

Definitely worth a shot. Great but not exceptional food. Short but good menu which is better for sharing - I went as a couple but maybe a few more people would allow you to sample more items.

A cozy, dimly lot restaurant in the Lower East Side that focuses on dishes found in the Yunnan Province in China. As a whole, the food is fine; the Scrambled Egg with Jasmine and Rice Cakes are only slightly upscale versions of the originals. Their grilled pork belly is delicious, though, and served on a skewer. Plates are smaller-portioned, so you'll need to order more to make an actual meal.

yunnan kitchen is just okay.. menu sounded great but the actual dishes were good but nothing to rave about. service was slow for being such small plates and not that busy. made a reservation for 8pm and weren't seated till 8:10 and we weren't even confronted by wait staff until 8:35. kinda bogus. but if you do end eating here get the lamb meatballs, prawns or congee.

Not sure why reviewers aren't raving about this place, but I loved it! It was a new venture the other night and I can't believe it was so tasty! The food portions aren't tapas small, but if you're hungry I recommend you stick to the bottom portion of the menu where it's more entrée-portion plates. Our party arrived sometime between 8-9pm and were immediately seated. The outstanding dishes of the night would have to be the Sausage Fried Rice, Pork Belly and Rice Cakes. Honorable mention goes to the scrambled eggs with Jasmine - it was really unique and tastes great. Overall, we were happily full after sharing 6 dishes among us 4 and splitting a bill which came out to about $28/person including an alcoholic drink and tip.

I came about 7:30pm on a Wednesday night and the place was almost empty when I arrived but bustling when I left. The food was great, service was prompt and the wait stay attentive. I came for the numbing spice so I ordered the fried chicken and the cucumber salad. Both were great and I'll be back more for the fried chicken as the weather gets colder.

One of the many hipster Asian spots on the LES, the food is pleasant but unchallenging and could push the envelope more. Great for a date, not for your Chinese parents. Also, the red spice blend is fantastic but when it's on the meatballs, the wings and your cocktail glass, everything starts tasting a bit alike.

The food is ok. But as a yunnaness. The food dose not taste Yunnan at all. If you really looking for a true Yunnan taste, I don't recommend this place. But if just looking for cozy dating place, I'm sure the food won't be a distraction from ur conversations.

Original, light, savory and incredibly well done. One of my favorite restaurants for fantastic food at a decent price.
