We really enjoyed our lunch here. There was a good selection and the manager was excellent in arranging a vegan lunch for us. The food was excellent as was the service. I cannot comment on the cost as it was included in our travel package. The only down side was that there were a number of mosquitos on the patio... More

Whilst the restaurant is clearly targeted at tourists, it is a great spot to relax and sample some great Thai and Myanmar dishes from the extensive menu. The food was delicious and beautifully presented. Staff were very friendly and introduced us to the art of napkin folding! The whole evening experience contributed to a fun introduction to Myanmar.

The staff is friendly and it has a nice ambience, but I wouldn't say that there's anything particularly special about the place. Certainly more focused on the tourist/ex-pat clientele with prices to match. Not a bad place for a lunch, if you want to try something above the standard local restaurant.

Huge menu of many different Asian cuisines. The Giant Spring Roll is a meal in itself - packed full of delicious fresh vegetables, bean sprouts and meat. One is enough for 3 let alone 2 as a starter. We had chicken with cashew nuts and prawns with a mandarin orange sauce. Both were exceptionally good. The service is of a... More

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.
