“Very average”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

Not worth the money. Dinner was ok, but nothing special. One of the courses was foie gras, which we don't eat. Rather than offering an alternative, the course was just skipped, and $10 was deducted from the bill. Service was very messy. Hugely disappointing experience. Garden setting was nice though.

“Garden dining under the stars”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2013

The large outdoor garden at the rear of the restaurant was a surprise to see in Yangon. Combined with dining under the stars and the fine food, it was an enjoyable experience.

“Beautiful garden restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2013

The restaurant is in a large garden displayed beautifully with soft lights and parasols. The tables were large and well ordered. It seemed to me that the night we were there the staff were on a training course. No real problems but only half of the table had their drinks order given them. Another had her entree before she received her aperitif. This is not a criticism, i think they are doing well considering the country is just opening up to tourists. The food was quite nice as were the wines which you could order by the glass or bottle. Not all at our table of 8 were happy with the standard of the meal.
