Recommended by your guide. Place was empty when we arrived. Service prompt. The best dish was the spring rolls. We tried the pork curry which tough tasty, the meat was tough. The fried kale was nicely done with lots of garlic. Home cook fare.

This is some of the best Myanmar food that you can find. They also have a restaurant in Mandalay to be highly recommended.

What a fantastic little place. Food were freshly prepared and so very tasty. The spring rolls had the nicest sweet chilli sauce I've ever tasted. Lentil soup was amazing. Lovely little curio shop attached to the restaurant that sells mainly rattan goods.

Well it may not be hidden for some but it came as a surprise for our little troupe. The menu was extensive and everything was just so scrumptious I wish I had more room to fit more in. I highly recommend this excellent venue.

The food was wonderful, to try out the taste of Myanmar cuisine. You will not be disappointed. They also have some good local wine. The service was great and the venue, lovely.

I was having a business dinner there. The foods and the services were great but a table next to us were full off girls wearing cheap makeup and checking our table out. It was not long that I found out they were escorts and making my guests uncomfortable. It should be more family friendly establisment.
