Perfect for lunch!

Our guide brought us hear for lunch. She ordered a variety of local dishes. Soup, salad and entrees were delicious. The atmosphere was clean and bright. Would come back again

The cocktails were very well made, apple martini, gin fizz, very good. The starters were a kind of cannelloni with a spicy sauce. My main was squid stuffed with pork, like lulas recheadas in Portugal, very good . Very nice dinner.

We 'killed' two birds with one stone.. Delicious lunch at Monsoon and a visit to Pomelo next door to spend our left over cash. At Monsoon we were able to choose from a variety of Asian cuisines and all meals were received most favourably. The cocktails were also delicious. After many meals at simple restaurants it was nice to visit... More

In an old colonial house. You as if you have gone back in time. Food great too ....sections for all parts of SE Asia. Visit Pomelo the NGO craft shop almost next door before you go in (shop shuts at 9pm) as it has beautiful, contemporary mementoes for a good cause.

We turned up here for lunch without a booking and were shown upstairs to a lovely room. There were 8 in our group and we all ordered Burmese food. It was very tasty and the service was fine. We then went next door to Pomelo to buy handicrafts.

I was a little sceptical after reading all the reviews here as didn't know what to expect as opinions seem to vary. We had no complaints. We had top service, tasty food, and well made drinks. Nice decor, although not particularly fantastic "atmosphere". Overall a pleasant evening.

We ate here for our last lunch of vacation after getting recommendations. After being told that my first and second selections were not good, I settled on choice number three, which had no flavor. I also ordered three different drinks before they had what I wanted in stock. The service was also quite slow. After dropping off our food, no... More

My experience with Monsoon varied greatly between two visits. The first visit left me unimpressed. Despite the fact that this place is usually pretty busy, the service is attentive and fairly quick. Still, I found the food to be very mediocre. Maybe I just don't like Burmese cuisine, but the food was pretty bland. I was wondering why the place... More

Around the corner from our hotel 'The Strand' this was the best meal we had in Yangon...so good we went there for lunch and dinner. A lovely informal atmosphere and lots of delicious burmese dishes to sample. Definitely a must visit in Yangon.

If you want to eat south east Asian food this is the best place to be as they have an extensive menu offering genuine Cambodian / Vietnamese / Thai and last but not the least good Myanmar food. The rates are not very high though the service is very good and the food quality is very good. For coffee lovers... More
