About
Rangoon Tea House is a modern recreation of an old, colonial-era restaurant set in the heart of downtown Yangon. The cuisine is inspired from that of local tea shops, whose traditions stretch back to when Burma was a part of British India when Rangoon was the second largest migration port in the world. That translates to the menu where you can find Mohinga, biryani, and chocolate samosas! The mezzanine of Rangoon Tea House is The Toddy Bar, a modern Burmese cocktail bar with cocktails designed by award-winning and internationally renowned mixologist, Hideyuki Saito.

I had an afternoon lunch there and the new cocktails just blew me away. Must try Even the new set up is pretty useful, the place seems more ventilated. Have always liked how innovative they are👌🏻

Superb service, amazing food (highly recommend the naga wood smoked chicken) and a lovely atmosphere that isn’t noisy even when it’s busy. Don’t be a fool and be sure to check it out!

I went there in December with my local friends, the food was superb and I really like how the classic teashop culture is mixed with modern vibes. There's also Sule Pagoda to visit afterwards.

Took a cab to dinner at Rangoon Tea House. Recommended by our guide today. I had the Soft Shell Crab Biryani. Biryani is derived from Dum Pukht (Hindi). A technique of cooking by not allowing the steam to pass Basmati rice. Served with raita, acacia...leaf soup. My dish had the soft shell crab masala, potato, bay leaves, saffron crab curry. Very delicious. My spouse had Pyay Paratha, a delicious combination of chicken, potato, lentil served in a broth with whole meal paratha. Great dishes.More

My wife and I were staying at The Strand Hotel for 3 nights. This place is within walking distance from the Hotel. We found this place using TripAdvisor. We ordered Chicken satay for starters, grilled Tiger Prawns and Hainanese chicken rice for mains. The food...was good. Service was okay.More

Decoration, staffs and menu were bearing good taste, however, location being in the busy street offered hard time for parking. It is convenient for those who stay near there. Prices are considered exorbitant to ordinary locals.

As you know, cleanliness and overall quality of food might be a problem across Myanmar. In my one month stay in the country, I did not enjoy any restaurant as much as I enjoyed Rangoon Tea House. The quality of food and drinks is simple...phenomenal. They present Burmese food with Western sensibilities. In fact, I visited this restaurant three times in my 2-day-stay in Yangon. Highly recommended!More

Went here because it was recommended. The service was slow and the waiter did not speak English at all. The tea choices were numerous, but very confusing with no English explanation, so it was pot luck. I was lucky and mine was ok, but my...husband had an undrinkable tea. We only had cake and it was good, but overall very overpriced. Would not recommend it unless you can make yourself understand in Burmese.More

Doubt they would. Rangoon is new to ATM's prepaid food vouchers would be a ways off I'd suggest getting in contact with Mark at the Strand and seeing if you can prepay drinks & nibbles st the bar there instead.
