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.

While I basically agree with all you've written, I fail to understand how promoting women's health through reduced price pelvic exams could be considered stereotypically sexist? As a gynecological cancer survivor, I believe that any initiative to encourage women to get check ups sounds like a good idea -- whether this clinic is making a profit or not. No, they're not fun, but being around for another International Women's Day makes them worthwhile.
