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

Food is decent mostly. Had to send the fish back as it was uncooked. Soup came with way too much salt though. Nice decor. High ceiling fans creates a lazy feel in this lovely building.

An elegant refuge from the hustle and bustle of the streets with a book-length menu, creative drinks (try the Mandalay mint) and solid fare (stuck with the Burmese menu). It's clearly on the beaten path among tourists -- and for very good reason. It's also a great first stop for recent arrivals, since Monsoon has an array of tourist maps... More

It is a nice restaurant with a relaxing atmosphere, not particularly tasty dishes (Myanmar standard dishes - lacking in spice, fair but nothing exceptional), but we found it too expensive for Myanmar standards and definitely not exceptional enough to justify the bill. Vegetarian, or vegan choices: practically non existent. Wifi not working. Amicable staff. If you are a smoker, you... More

Nicely decorated Birmese restaurant offering foods from several countries in ASEAN. But, not much of vegetarian selections, so you would need to ask the chef to prepare vegetarian food for you. The restaurant can prepare the same dishes without meat or fish. Prices are fair. Clean and nostalgically decorated. Good staff. A place to relax and enjoy a good conversation.... More

Set in a colonial style building the monsoon offers good good at a reasonable price. Though most customers are foreigners the food is authentically asian with a choice of Burnese Thai and other Asian dishes to choose from. The smoothies are excellent as are the baguettes. Service is quick and the Reastaurant appears clean and well looked after.
