Services were excellent with very attentive and friendly staff. The cuisine was special and tasty. I tried the Myanmar catfish as starter. The finger like fish was deep fried and boney. At first I thought the bones could be eaten as well but they were too hard. But once the bones were removed, the fish tasted good. My main dish... More

We went here one night due to it's rating on Trip Advisor. We were told it had the best restaurant and best hotel in Yangon. The place looked beautiful and was well manicured. We got a great seat at the restaurant by the pool and it lasted about 15 minutes before we moved inside due to the bugs. Not a... More

I'm not sure if 'The Governor's Residence' was quite so swish in colonial times, but it's certainly smart now. We just had an evening drink on a terrace overlooking the rather beautiful garden. The food - a buffet - looked good. Mostly expats when we were there.

The best food and overall dining experience of my trip. The Governors Residence is a lovely historic building in a wonderful tropical garden that immediately makes you fell relaxed and at home. The ground floor is the European food area with a great little cocktail bar that's won a number of awards. The rum sour was the best I've tasted.... More

We had a wonderful meal here. Our kids chose western dishes while we went for curries. All meals were excellent. The setting is beautiful and service was excellent. When you want to splurge in Yangon this place should definetely be on your short list.
