Tourists beware. Managed to peer over to another bill, thus we knew that we were charged at least double of what the locals are paying. Plus oily, cold, tasteless (if not weird tasting) food. No reason to come here at all.

We went there as the restaurant got top pick on Lonely Planet's guide and for once walked away quite disappointed. Greasy, salty curries served cold, unattentive staff, the place smelled like wet dog... The LP guide is outdated, as it was edited in 2013, probably...More

Aung Thu Kha is typical Burmese curry place which you will see in every Burmese houses's lunch and dinner tables. They have variety of curries. Delicious, Authentic and cast. Staffs are part of the family and very well organized.
