Dining by myself is sometimes an awkward endeavor. However, this charming garden and polite staff made for an enjoyable experience. Obviously --full of foreigners--- a bit of a tourist trap. But who cares, if the food is tasty and service prompt.

This restaurant is situated in a beautiful garden. We went during low season, so the service was very prompt. But, our tour guide warned us that during high season you will need a reservation to eat there. The staff brought a mosquito coil for under the table and offered mosquito spray if we wanted it. The food was very good... More

Great place. The staff is very professional and kind. You can find different kind of regional dishes such as Myanmar, Thai and Hindi. During Thingyan (Myanmar new year) the best time to go is at dinner time on the contrary it will be pretty hot at lunch time.

This is by far the worst place you could end up when in Burma. Where shall I start? Enjoy warm drinks, cold food and abysmal service for the price of a small car. I won't even try and list all the faults of this place as I don't think I have enough room on this page. Everything has been said... More

Food was ok. Not great. But service is slow and price is definitely overboard. Expensive even for someone who is used to overpriced restaurant and definitely not expecting such price in this country.

The food was okay, nothing special. Defiantly overpriced for the portion sizes. Service was very slow, but the atmosphere was nice and quiet.

We had dinner here quite late. The clientele were almost exclusively westerners. We ate in the garden area which is very pleasant but I got the impression there were not enough staff for the number of diners. The garden probably seats about 60 people. The food is typically Burmese with Thai options and in general good. However, be very careful... More

Very disappointing, the food we ordered was very bland and overpriced. Had to point out to the waiters that several bamboo candle holders had set alight whilst waiting for our food, which they then tried to extinguish by blowing it out only to spread the hot molten wax everywhere and as no one was hurt it proved to be quite...
