Food doesn't taste great. Had Bbq buffet menu for 25usd ++ each for a table of 5. Quite stingy with the amount of food they serve. Wanted us to bbq it ourselves until we complained. Then the chef helped us with the cooking. Service is...not great even though there were just 3 or 4 tables. Desert was exceptional though.More

My wife and I had lunch here during our holiday in Inle Lake, Myanmar. We enjoyed the variety of local food. The decor of this restaurant with the sitting area and the bar on the ground floor is interesting.

The Shan is a must-to-go-to place in Inlé. The food is stunning and the setting, right near the river, is spectacular. Try the avocado salad, really tasty and better than in the most sophisticated French restaurants. In fact everything is a delight here. The service...is impeccably quick and easy-going with smiles all round. Don’t miss the Shan on your trip to Lake Inlé !More

We had a nice lunch here, but found it rather expensive. The only place in Myanmar where we were charged for water at the table - only 1USD and I know that effort has to go into creating drinkable water. Even so, it all added...to the feeling of being in a bit of a tourist trap. Also if there is going to charge for water it would be good to make that clear before serving. Food, service and views were good so overall a decent experience.More

Dear Customer, I thank you for your review and thank you to confirm you had a nice lunch. Be sure that drinks at The Shan are not to be compared with UK prices and bottled water is never free in restaurants in Myanmar. Why should...More

The best Myanmar cuisine we have experienced. We came for lunch and ordered the "Shan discovery menu" which is a selection of small dishes to share (6/7 portions by courses). It is definitely the best way to discover Shan food. Food is as beautiful as...it is delicious. Vegetables are local, fresh and organic. Meat is perfectly cooked and flavored. The restaurant is located by the river. Decoration is elegant and comfortable - it is the kind of peaceful place where its good to spend time with friends and family. A great thanks to Nye Nye and the restaurant team, who perfectly looked after us. They could not have been more kind and helpful. Thank you for this splendid culinary experience, we will come back!!More

This restaurant which is on the first floor of Hotel Viewpoint Ecolodge is worth a visit for its reasonably good food, nice ambience and great views of the canal. We were staying at hotel and went for dinner on one of days and we had...a good experience. We had a mix of cuisines ( avacado salad, pasta, and Shan Prawn curry with steamed rice); the food made the cut but was not outstanding. The vegetarian menu was a bit limited though. We drank local beer and wine.More

We were staying at the hotel where this restaurant is. It is not cheap by Myanmar standards but was so nice to have a fine dining treat. We had the all you can eat bbq and it was fabulous. Meat is cooked at table for...you. Salad vegtables are grown fresh on sight. Staff are so very friendly. Everything here is priced in US dollars.More

I came several times over the last few months, the food was delicious, the menu offering is quite original, based on revisited recipes of local products and dishes. More importantly the service was fast and very efficient making it one of the few places in...Nyaung Shwe I would recommend without hesitation. Very happy to see the come back of such a great dinning place in Nyaung Shwe. The quality is back at every level. Good job to the management.More
