A Great Introduction to Local Cuisine

This review is for the branch at No. 37. University Avenue, Shwe Taung Kyar 1st Quarter, Bahan Township. The restaurant is a short drive from the Sedona Hotel Yangon, where I stayed. Alternatively, walk along Inye Lake and take in the sunset. It should take around 15 minutes before you reach the... read more

We dined at this and their new branch near 7th mile ....a fabulous setting and quite a attentive lady manager who seemed to know everything about the restaurant is quite of a rarity in Yangon. Food was nice and tasty. Very authentic Myanmar cuisine according to my colleagues who had the Myanmar chicken curry with rice and the fried chicken... More

The location is fairly convenient and the open air dining area is comfortably laid out. The staff will set up fans to blow cigarette smoke away from tables in the "non-smoking area". The food was very good. However, after confirming that I like and enjoy spicy food, the local guide changed my order from spicy curry to very mild, substituted... More

Our first day in Myanmar was in Yangon. This was the first restaurant we were brought to. Everything we ordered was great! a sort of Lentil & Squash soup, eggplant salad, beef curry, a veggie dish, and a chicken dish. Everyone in the group loved it. Price-wise i'm not sure as we were on a group tour.

We ate here a couple of times as we were coming to the end of our time in Myanmar and the restaurant was not far from our hotel. It is a pleasant setting, with lovely plants around, but the service was - we thought - way over the top for what the place is. Obviously a lot of tour operators... More

Used by our Tour Company for lunch. No memorable, busy with tour companies and clean - no ill effects - could do worse.

Arrived just off the plane from Thailand and taken here to dine. So calming. Dark woods, plants, quiet all around, and delicious local food gently served. My favorite dining experience in Yangon.
