We went to the Strand to admire the colonial architecture and to have a drink. We were tempted by the High Tea menu - they have a Burmese (18USD) and traditional (20USD). We went for the Burmese (we love our tea leaf salad) and were not disappointed. Good value (as where we come from high teas are ~40USD), cocktails were... More

Service and surroundings perfect. The interior is worth the meal. Wood on stone floor interesting. Ornate mirrors arresting. Menu is varied but mainly western and relatively small. Wine list uninteresting and no local ones. Cloudy bay pinot @ 99 USD. There are better.examples of this nostalgia but none in Rangoon, Burma.

We had high tea in the restaurant and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves for a few hours being in beautiful surroundings and enjoying lovely food. The service was 5 star.

It was our last night in Yangon after two glorious weeks in Myanmar so we decided to splurge. Let me say first that the refurbishment is beautiful as you would expect, but service is downright poor. Hopefully, this will improve rapidly because at this stage I could not recommend it. First, the drinks from the bar order took ages to... More

I started and ended one of my tours here so decided to have some lunch. I am not sure if it was because I was not the flashiest dressed or a guest here but service was very slow especially when there was hardly anyone there. This place is beautiful but I paid $22 US for a smoothie and a French... More

We had the privilege of being able to dine in the newly refurbished Strand Cafe and swoon at each and every dish that we either read on the menu, or were finally pleased to order ! A very appetising menu and a delectable choice of dishes, with some subtle local twists. All this in exquisitly refurbished surroundings. Be it for... More

My girlfriend and I visited for high tea at the Strand. The decor is beautiful, and by far the most luxurious we saw during our time in Myanmar. The service was excellent and coffee very good. Both the sweet and savoury dishes were very tasty, and it is excellent value for money considering the price of something similar in the... More

Beautiful setting in a very grand hotel. The staff were attentive ,very professional and pleasant. The food ,however didn't live up to expectations.We had classical high tea. The sandwiches were nice,minute but nothing special and a little bit curled round the edges, probably made some time in advance. The cakes were very ordinary. On the whole the portions were small(and... More
