This has always been one of our favorite restaurants. Unfortunately have not been here For two years because of Covid. So happy to be back and the Swan is still as delicious and tasty as ever. Prices are still extremely reasonable. Definitely worth a special...trip.More

We were Thailand for a 2 week vacation and we visited Bangkok, Phuket and Chaing Mai. Out of all of the places we ate at on this trip, this place by far was the best food we had. Par Pat Toke was simply phenomenal!

Truly enjoyed the food. The penny leave salad brought back memories of time spent in Myanmar. Greatful that the food was less oily than in some restaurants in Myanmar

This Burmese restaurant just north of Thapae Gate is a step or two up from the average street restaurant. For one thing, it’s not actually on the street—its decorated entry hall leads to an open-air dining room replete with a small garden, Buddhist sculptures, and...goldfish pond. I like the salads and stir-fry dishes best. The waitstaff also kept my prescription sunglasses behind the counter for a week when I left them there and thought I’d lost them somewhere else.More

Nice burmese restaurant, near the gate. Delicious dishes, and very affordable. Different atmosphere and taste as the fantastic Thai cuisine. Try to have a table more by the window, deeper in the restaurant I found it a little too dark.

With Myanmar cuisine being one of our favourite and living for years in Mandalay we truly looked forward to this visit. Unfortunately the food was a bit of a let down flavour wise. The Laphet thoke was good, the comfort that only a tealeaf salad...can give was there. Having had many bowls of Shan Kao Swè for lunch we were let down by the taste of the Shan noodles, or the lack of taste. The yummy green mustard pickles, chilli oil and fried garlic (or tofu fritters when lucky) often served as a topping / side and adding so much to this dish were left out unfortunately. The chicken curry was ok. The setting is really nice and so is the staff. Shan Kao Swè Laphet thoke Kyat thar hinMore

Visited this restaurant a few days ago. Never had birmese food before but I loved it. Don't know for sure the meal that I had but it was something vegetarian with tofu. Great taste some of the best dishes I had the last few weeks.

Excellent burmese restaurant low priced. Food is great, tasty and full of flavors. I had an Inlay curry delicious at 110 thb Atmosphere is relaxing. Should say that the service is slow and not what it should be. Glass of house wine is average. Regarding...the food it's worth the detourMore

Was introduced to The Swan on a food tour and made sure to go back for a second meal! This place has outstanding vegetarian food. The pennywort salad had amazing flavor, was unlike anything I’ve had before. Also had a wonderful tomato and chili soup,...and tofu dish. Strongly recommend The Swan!More

First experience with Burmese cuisine, but definitely not the last.. Everything was delicious, tastes are subtitles and based on all the South East perfumes like lemongrass, coriander, garlic, curry, lime.. Portions are huge.. The place is a kind of green house with wooden table, very...clean, well kept and cozy.. Friendly service..More

Yes, many restaurants serve excellent salads also, either as features or as sides. The specialities here are Burmese food, however, not salads.
