    This is by far one of the best restaurants in Alexandria. There are no misses on the menu. I love how many vegan options are available for my friends. And I order from Yunnan at least once a month.

    This is such a charming little spot and the food was OUTSTANDING! We loved the light woods and simple modern interior of the restaurant. Our party of three was so excited about so many things on the menu so we decided to go with a bento box lunch each so we could sample lots of things and boy were we glad we did that! The bento lunch comes with three appetizers, a choice between a bao or dumplings and a bowl of noodles (or noodle soup). Everything we had was beautiful in presentation, stunning in flavor and just the perfect amount of food. I am telling everyone I know about this place and can't wait to return.

    My children were in town for the weekend and my husband said, "Lets have a special dinner, wherever you want to go." I thought hard and honestly, Yunnan Noodles is truly my absolute favorite restaurant in all of Old Town. The food is just that good. We started with the bok choy in chili oil and the fabulous crab dumplings. Then we each had a type of bbq, served either with the fabulous bao buns or rice. We paired our meal with a lovely choice of Albarino. Such a fabulous meal, the best food in Old Town by far!

    Best night out in months! Perfect food, great service, honestly can’t wait to go back. Yunnan has impressed me - consistently delicious, never a “miss” dish, and while always busy it’s never too busy for the owner and his lovely wife to stop by, ask how we are doing, if we need anything, etc. Although I’m sad they’re moving locations, I plan to make the short trek :)

    We have been to this restaurant several times and it has been excellent. This past weekend we went to celebrate Mother's Day. They were out of several drinks which was weird since it was Saturday afternoon. My shrimp were not cooked and mushy. The food came out at all different times. We had to remind the server that my husband had not gotten his food. We were charged for items we never received. I will not be going back which is sad since we always looked forward in going there. I paid the bill and left more than a 20% tip. Nicole
