The interior garden design took inspiration from the Ancient Tea Horse Road in where busy caravans used to traverse through the winding roads up the mountains of Szechuan, Yunnan and Tibet in Southwest China, everything from the tables and walls are designed to reflect the familiar patterns of the old trade routes. Taking pride in importing ingredients straight from Yunnan itself where most of its ingredients are grown 6,000 metres above sea level, kept free from pollution and hand harvested by locals. The best of these ingredients are fully utlised to their full potential in some of the new menu highlights at Yunnan’s newest outlet!
