We visited this restaurant as it was one of only three restaurants recommended in New Bagan by Lonely Planet. We ordered two chicken curry dishes. Both came with a tough, stringy chicken leg on the bone, swimming in a fatty nondescript curry sauce. It was impossible to distinguish between them. Both were awful. The restaurant looked filthy and we were... More

Very poor meal here, beef in curry so tough it was inedible and did not come with the usual side dishes. At 4000 kyat very bad value. Restaurant tables not very clean and advertised wifi not working. Staff not bothered. Much better to be had elsewhere in Bagan at a better price.

We had dinner at the Silver House last night after having rented 2 fairly good bikes from them during the day. We were so surprised about the A-class service we got! And the food - we tried birmese chicken and mutton curries - was absolutely delicious! Portions are definitely not too big and the prices mid-range. But having gotten free... More

When in Rome.........so I just asked them to bring me whatever Burmese dish they had. They served up an incredibly tasty mutton curry with good quality meat and chili to taste. It did not last long on plate. The serve was small but good value with side dish. Friendly people to make you feel at home.

Fairly small and looked a bit spartan (they did have free wifi, though!). Friendly and helpful staff and menus in English. Fairly wide choice and quick service – food arrived straight from the wok and it was good and tasty.

A mention in Lonely Planet brings out the foreigners! When I ate dinner there, the only local people I saw were a couple of guys having a beer, and they left fairly early. The 12 vegetable soup was very good, the Malaysian fried noodles were OK (but maybe I’m always expecting more meat and veggies that a noodle dish is... More

Lonely Planet must have had their reviewer 'drunk' in this restaurant. One can eat the food - whatever you ask, it's cooked in too much oil. No atmosphere whatsovever. Horrible, non existant service. We're not fussy when abroad, but this must have been the no. 1 on places to avoid in Myanmar. Just go to the toilet, but close your... More
