“Drove 1.5 Hours and It Was Worth Every Moment”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2014 via mobile

When my friend said that we should drive 1.5 hours to try this restaurant that served Myanmar food, I was skeptical, but boy was the effort worth it.

The food was so imaginative, texturally interesting, flavourful, and easy to order from the menu too. As a group we tried about ten different dishes, from mango and mint iced teas, a ten ingredient tea leaf salad mixed at the table, pork on lemongrass sticks, a non-soy tofu dish (I thought tofu had to contain soy), egg curry, kima platha (a multilayered phyllo-like pastry stuffed with beef), samosas, curries and an assortment of desserts (semolina, tapioca and cassava cakes, and milk/jelly drinks like you'd see at a Vietnamese restaurant) that were easily shared between our group.

The staff was helpful and the owner spent some time with us too.

We were all extremely happy with the choices and our experience, and excited with this discovery! I plan to return again and again.
