I really enjoyed this restaurant while in Yangon. The decor is nice, it's very calm, and they have an impressive menu. The menu is divided up by region and you can get food from Veitnam, Laos, Cambodia, and Myanmar. I had a Pumpkin Coconut Curry from Laos that I really enjoyed.They also have a list of fresh juices that were... More

Its an average restaurant, better known amongst the tour operators for group fooding packages. The place has well done decor and prices are pocket friendly.

If you are downtown at Merchant, thats the place to have lunch or supper. Good local and Thai food, moderate prices. Interior looks like a railway station waiting hall, not impressive. But worth the visit.

First time visited Yangon and read reviews on TripAdvisor. Had a try and i think this is an OK place, nothing too fancy or unique. Certainly, it is clean and familiar ambience that you would find from a typical asian restaurant. We tried some dishes that claimed to be traditional myanmar food but it wasn't to our appetite. Maybe, this... More

The quality of the food is very acceptable and the price is reasonable compared to hotel restaurants . However, the place is also quite popular with some locals and their oversea friends. I saw mainly this group of patron apart from some tourists like us. Love the relaxing ambience and nice food in the restaurant . Was a good choice... More

An oversized menu including lots of wine options. Lively atmosphere although most customers were tourists. But who cares when the food is so yummy. Prices as cheap as everywhere in this country.

Been there for two lunch and a dinner. Disappointed. Thought it'll be the real local taste for Myanmar food and SE Asian food. But more like fusion for me. Thai food doesn't taste real Thai, Burmese food is also prepared for foreigner friendly taste, so kind of lack of real local taste as well. Vietnamese also still too light on... More

The menu was extensive and so varied. If you want to try SE Asian food then go here. They serve Thai, Burmese, Cambodian and lots more. A really nice atmosphere inside with incredibly friendly staff who speak great English. Incredible value for money - only about 5,000 Ks for a big curry. They used lots of seasonal ingredients so certain... More

We spent ten days traveling in Myanamar and the visit to restaurant, and our last meal in the country, was by far the best. Large meny, great service but of course a lot more expensive than on the countryside - but hey it's still cheap. Service was impeccable, good english spoken and very nice ambience. Highly recommended

We were a big group (16) and they had a full set menu for us. The food was all local and so delicious. The service was very attentive and friendly. We even went back for lunch the next day and ordered a la carte (they have just about everything on the menu) and it is a great value. The setting... More
