Hi @cashiers! As stated, international credit card usage "applies to all Luxe, Premier and Express rides." DiDi Taxi is a separate service which does not accept international credit cards.

I'm not trying to be a jerk but your information about credit cards and Didi seems to contradict itself within a matter of paragraphs. In one sentence you say:
DiDi users can pay for rides with major international credit cards, including Visa, Mastercard, JCB, Discover and Diners.
And later you say:
Note that DiDi Taxi does not support international credit cards and Apple Pay yet, but riders can either use WeChat, Alipay or cash to pay their driver.
So..... which is it? I mean, I know the answer (which is they don't) but I would recommend a copy edit to this section for some clarification.

I am struggling to know where to begin because our experience at this restaurant was terrible from beginning to end. I am very surprised at your positive review of it. Only one or two of the dishes seemed like actual Yunnan dishes, the rest was hard to describe but it was not good. A bad attempt at fusion cuisine is the closest. The plates of the set menus kept piling up on our table until the waiter just handed it to me because there was no more space on the table. Also somehow the food managed to consistently arrive at our table cold. All in all, the only reason the evening was enjoyable was the absurdity of the whole experience.
