We chose to eat here because of the good reviews on trip advisor. I had chicken with chili and vegetables and the chicken was really dry and tough. Like it was cooked from frozen. Sauce was nice but the chicken just ruined the dish. My...partner had vegetable fried rice which was ok. This restaurant suffers from the same issue that lot of restaurants here in Yangon: customer service. It is extremely uncomfortable to look at the menu, eat and pay when there is 1 to 3 staff members standing in your personal space looking at you. This is not what we are used to and makes the experience awkward and uncomfortable. Like said, we have faced this issue in many restaurants in Yangon. Can’t recommend this restaurant.More

This is a large Chinese restaurant with indoor and outdoor seating. We were there for dinner and there was a large, rowdy group outdoors, but very few diners indoors. The service was fast and efficient. The chefs specials were excellent and the price was moderate....Walking distance from the Chatrium Hotel and a nice option for dinner.More

My wife and I had dinner at the White rice restaurant. There weren’t many other customers so service was prompt and efficient. Food was hot and tasty, but nothing really special.

Not sure about the price since someone else paid for it. But I would say this was one of the best Chinese food I tasted for a while. 가격은 제가 직접 지불한 게 아니라서 얼마인지는 잘 모르겠습니다. 저렴하지는 않을 거 같네요. 그래도 음식이 무척 맛있었어요....최근에 먹은 중국 음식 중 가장 괜찮은 거 같네요.More

We had lunch here on our first day in Yangon.! Everyone really enjoyed their food and drink. The decor was fun. The restaurant was quiet. The staff was friendly and eager to please.

Stumbled across this place by chance and it was so good that my wife and I visited twice. The deep fried squid and seabass were amazing and the staff were very attentive. Overall, a stunning place for lunch or dinner. I'd to thank all the...staff as well. They were excellent.More

Dinner is a pleasure at this upscale restaurant. The portions are large so you may want to split a order.

Great ambiance. Ok food. Service was way off. One guy doesn’t any of our questions since he doesn’t really speak English. There were six of us and each had problems with our order. One person ordered a apple mojito and got a strawberry mojito. She...send it back and the second time got a lemongrass mojito. Since service was slow, she just gave up or she would have to wait a long time before getting the right drink. My friend ordered a large fired noodles and got a small lo mein (not fried). They ordered a small vegetable and got a large one. I ordered a small shrimp dish. I asked and was told there’s 6-8 pieces. The dish arrived with twice the amount of pieces. I had ordered a rice but it came when I was almost done with the shrimp so I told them I did t want it and they took it a away. A few minutes later my friend asked where’s her rice and they went to fetch her one - when they could have just given my rice to her. They couldn’t think outside of the box. Another friend ordered a seaweed salad and a eel dish. The salad came when she’s was almost done with her meal. She tried to refuse it. But the waitress didn’t seem to understand (or she pretended not to?). This friend also gave up communicating just accepted the salad which she says mid didn’t taste right. My bill was 19,635. Tip was included in the total. I gave the waitress 20,000 and got 350 back. So I was short changed 15. It’s really nothing in dollars but I collect different currencies as I travel the world and wanted the coins. The food is actually good. The portion is huge. Order the small if more than enough for one person.More

We had a global event in Yangon last November, and had our official dinner at White Rice Restaurant. Food is really delicious, a bit pricey though.
