The Golden Kite is very proud of their Italian food. They make their pasta by hand and it is good. The red/ tomato based sauces are lacking the smooth flavor you usually find and I think it is because they do not saute the onions...and garlic in olive oil before adding the tomatoes. So the sauce has a slightly harsh tomato paste flavor. The pizza is overpriced and while they have a pizza oven not worth it unless you really need a change of food. They very nice and the place is very clean.More

Came here for dinner after reading online reviews. On arrival wait staff proudly explained history of restaurant with classical Italian training and sourcing of ingredients. Whilst I wasn't particularly looking for European food, this satisfied the family with great wood fired pizza and a gnocchi...meal. I had a traditional pumpkin curry and rice which was superb. Meals and drinks were very reasonably priced. Can recommend this place if you are looking for choice between traditional local cuisine and European options.More

I have been to this restaurant a few years ago so things look familiar. The owner is very friendly and let me check her kitchen. The menu is extensive so you can have your choice. Good taste. Reasonably priced. Fast and friendly service. While waiting,...get some crispy tofu crackers. Yummy.... This time we also have lunch at their branch restaurant with the same name (Golden Kite) at Indein, Inle Lake. Nice property on the river bank. From there it is a short walk (covered walkway from the sun, thankfully) to the pagodas.More

I haven't been there for years and gave it a try. They used to be the first and only restaurant serving pizzas and pastas. This is a pity that they did not know how to renew themselves. The pizzas are pancakes, the pastas are ok...though. The rest of the food was of very poor quality. The garlic bread offered as a starter is a good gesture, but was totally tasteless, bread was passed and too hard. I don't recommend.More

Some of the poor reviews on this site are for Golden Kite Taunggyi (on lake) not Golden Kite Nuangshwe (town on land!) Nuangshwe is a great atmosphere, and has genuine wood fired pizza even at 10.30 am! Lovely to sit on the verandah with a...cool fresh watermelon drink. A large variety of pizza filling, plus other quick eats. Good, clean western toilets.More

We were traveling in Myanmar and eating "native" food. I really like pizza and to my surprise we found a restaurant that employed an Italian chef and made an excellent pizza. The manager, Mr. Myo greeted us and spent time talking to us and made...our time there extra enjoyable. Not one piece was left!More

I was surprised the pizzas were so unimpressive given they make their own dough and apparently claim to have imported the recipes from Italy. That’s most certainly not true. The best comparison would be to a microwave pizza. That said the food was eatable. Milkshakes...were pretty good, and the atmosphere was good.More

We wanted and excited to eat a woodfire pizza. So disappointed, it looks frozen pizza that you buy in the supermarket and you add some ingredient on it. It didn't taste the woodfire. I really not recommand to go there for the pizza. And the...garlic bread 😂😂 it's a bread with 1cm of garlic in the middle, the rest of the bread has not taste.More

Golden Kite is great especially for large groups. The owner/manager is quite gregarious and loves to tell you about the specials and ingredients. I actually ate here twice and had the mushroom pizza both times because I enjoyed it so much. I also had guacamole...one night and it was delicious and a nice change of pace after eating Burmese food for 7 days. Highly recommend stopping in while in Nyang Shwe.More
