We sat in the garden which is lovely. The staff could pay a little more attention. We ordered a starter which came at the same time as the main course. The food is good but a little expensive.

Most expensive meal in Myanmar was here..and only for 2 people. The food was fine..but I wouldn't go there again..very very expensive. Go around the corner on the main road and eat the same thing or just as good/better for a fraction.

We had read about the Green Elephant before we left and it was recommended again on our arrival. It was about a 15 minute (interesting) walk from our hotel (By the Red Canal) and was a perfect introduction to eating out in Myanmar. As other people have commented it has a lovely garden to eat in. Yes, it is geared... More

Expensive for what it offers, the saving grace of this restaurant is its candlelit garden. First impressions are pretty good - until careful scrutiny of the tables around you reveal an exclusively western clientele. The ultimate horror was the birthday cake procession, complete with a troupe of waiters singing a somewhat mangled version of happy birthday. The vegetable curry was... More

Went here as part of our tour group 'night out' and was pleasantly surprised. Good food and although a little more expensive was enjoyable. A number of power cuts, complete with torches provided to the table, added to the local experience.

We walked here from the Sedona hotel just a couple of hundred yards away round the corner as a local had told us it was "good for Europeans" which probably meant that he couldn't afford it but they spoke English. Our table was outdoors in a garden type setting, the food was good without being spectacular and the bill reasonable... More

Friends recommended this place as did the lonely planet. Ambiance was nice, but food was just OK, and a bit overpriced. Probably would not go back

Awful place, worst meal I had in my entire time in Myammar. The drivers you book are paid to bring you there as well. I am normally pretty open minded to local champions but this was definitely not it--and they are also a chain which if I had known, I would have avoided!

The food here was delicious! All of the tables are either in the open air restaurant or on a lovely patio. The service was also excellent. Definitely worth a try when you're in Mandalay.
