**There are two restaurants next to each other called Be Kind To Animals so I am reviewing the one in the pictures but it is also known as The Moon which seems to be separately rated below** Our group chose to eat here for two dinners and one breakfast during our 2 might stay in Bagan. The food is incredible... More

I ate here for lunch and it was very busy with a nice atmosphere. The menu is big with lots of choice. I had a very nice curry. The staff were really friendly and had brilliant English. They also give really nice tamarind sweets when they hand you the bill.

We had a wide range of vegetarian dishes and agreed that they were all delicious. We enjoyed the unusual combinations of vegetables in the salads. The surroundings were slightly down at heal but the service was friendly and efficient. The pricing was very reasonable.

Everything was delicious. The tamarind juice, the mango salad, the vegetarian curry, the tamarind candy, the coconut rice, everything! It is a must in Bagan and very cheap.

Really. The meal here was really great but I could not help for think that some chicken, pork or beef would be really good in some of the dishes. Ok, I'm an avowed non-vegetarian who likes pretty much all types of food ... and can understand why vegetarians would love this place as I did.

Perfect lunch spot before visiting the Ananda temple. Good service and delicious food at a reasonable price. Try the tamarind leaf curry!

We ate here once based on our lonely planet. Was a little let down as the food wasn't amazing as expected. Plenty of other restaurants that we happily returned to on our trip.

We ate at quite a few of popular traveller cafes in Bagan and this was our clear favourite. The food was excellent, nothing fancy just very fresh and very tasty, probably the best meal we had in Myanmar. The staff were very friendly and helpful, we'd highly recommend this place.

Good food - you get a lot for your money - and in pretty surroundings. The aubergine curry was fabulous with pickled vegetables.
