“great shan food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2013

we had the shan experience menu, that provides 24 different dishes, all with different tastes. Definitly recommendable and an experience by itself.
They also have very good cocktails.
BYO comes with a hefty corkage fee, so no need to buy at the red mountain estate your wine.

“Great food. Nice wine. Still working on service.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013

This is a great restaurant in the Inle Lake area. Food and wine was fantastic. An upscale change-of-pace from typical Myanmar restaurants. The setting is terrific. 2nd floor with open views of streeet and lake life. Sit on the west side and enjoy!

“A nice treat. Fashionably presented”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012

This is slightly fancy, upscale eating based on Shan traditional. Well done. Not big portions however. A nice change from the usual manner of family styled service ... Items presented on small plates and attractively. Recommend the butter beans, the tofu tomato. The salad and soups as well as non- veg items were also excellent

“Nice setting and good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2012

This is a nicer option for dinner in town. Food is good, it has a very nice wine list and both are affordable. We tried the tasting menu and didn't think it was amazing, probably better to go for a dish. Nice views over the canal
