It's pretty expensive compared to other restaurants in Myanmar, almost 5X the price, but the portion size is generous and food is good. (Not as good as street stall food but not that far off) Greeted with fresh towels to wash away your day, prawn crackers while you order. It's quite fancy and conveniently located only a 6 minute walk... More

Although the restaurant is a little bit more expensive than many other restaurants in Mandalay, the value for money is good. The dishes are more refined and we had combinations we did not have before and we liked it! Nice people in an attractive setting. We would certainly go back.

I think travel guide books over-rated this restaurant. There is no wow factor about this restaurant regarding cuisine, taste & view. Above all, it is one of expensive restaurants in Mandalay, Bagan and Yangon. They have chains in these cities. We ate at all of these restaurants after reading Lonely Planet.

If this had been our first experience of the food in Myanmar, we'd probably have been satisfied. But my partner's family is from Myanmar so we had some idea of what to expect. We've previously eaten in the Green Elephant restaurants in Yangon so expected their Mandalay restaurant to be similar, but when we ordered the same meal from an... More

I had a delish vegetarian meal of coconut rice and aubergine. The service was delightful, pricing was mid range as this is considered an upmarket option in Mandalay and free wifi. All the seating is alfresco under a high roof or garden setting and surrounded by sumptuous decor. I didn't need to make any booking, and the place was very... More

We tried it twice, withouth having the opportunity to taste the food. Even if we called the restaurant before going, while facing the door, it remained closed!

Took a taxi to the Green Elephant Restaurant for dinner before going to the Marionette show. The restaurant is quite nice outside with bamboo and lanterns. Every 10 minutes or so a man would come around with a pail of burning embers and incense and wave it around our table, or stick it under the table to keep the mosquito's... More

A reasonable meal at this restaurant, the local fish with steamed rice was well cooked and the sauce good, spring rolls were a little over done. We were the only people eating so the service was ok and efficient. Felt it was a little expensive for what is was. Owner was a little put out when we asked if he... More

We had an enjoyable meal here. The food was freshly cooked and there was a good selection of local dishes. The staff was attentive and helpful. If, like us, you prefer to eat outside remember to bring mosquito repellent. Most of the clientele were foreigners the evening we went.
