For the most part, the Changchun Friends website is not very active and has been superseded by the Tencent "Wechat" app by the local expat community. This website is maintained sporadically, people may still join and membership is still open, but if you are a spammer, stay away. The archived information here is still useful, but some may be out of date. There are plans to make it more useful for static information in the future. If anyone needs information about Changchun or China, you may post a message and it probably will get a response but not immediately.

A bit of history for those who are interested


When I lived in London (pre-internet days!) I was invited to join a Chinese dinner club by a friend from Shanghai. You were allowed to bring one guest who was immediately invited to join the group. Great fun. I met a lot of interesting characters and discovered the Chinese restaurants in London


Fast forward a few years and when I was in Singapore we used to organise monthly dinners - french, Indonesian, Italian, Egyptian - again great fun with up to 50 people coming along


Now we are in the Chun - lets do the same!


All ideas welcome!

Changchun restaurants reviews on

To start the Spring season off, we will be having a dinner at the newly opened S Cafe, a new Italian restaurant. Menu to be agreed but am hoping for Saltimbocca a la Romana or Vitello Tonnato but final decision will be made by Francesco as to what he feels will be the most memorable dishes he can provide

Check out the events board for further details

big (little) john brought to my attention a fabulous looking North Korean restaurant. I think we should investigate this location for a possible venue for the dinner club!

I think that is a goood idea

I am thinking that we can postpone the Mao restaurant idea till the autumn and maybe ask Mary at Ristorante Amice for a special deal outdoors - or at least seats outside for after the meal - what do you all think?
