We have been at 2 other Burmese restaurants which are rated in the top 10. Both ate frequented by tourists only which is not a predicate of authenticity. So we decided to have dinner at this place. There is quite an influence if Chinese which...is good after days of average Burmese food. Friendly and helpful staff. We did have soups, fried vegs and a chicken dish. All dishes were fantastically cooked and way cheaper than the other placed we visited the days before.More

The food is pretty good. Our noodles were delicious and the veggies too. They have a lot of tables and 3 floors. It was quiet enough downstairs.

What a surprise. On the roof top of a house located in the city ( not a typical location for a rest..) we found this Gem. Fair prices ( cheap for Westerners) nice dishes and tasty food. Make sure you have a taxi ready to...take you back to your hotel. As to the experience, you'll like it!More

A typical Chinese restaurant. That is, by our standards, a very basic interior. No frills, it's all about the food here. We sat on the first floor, at low tables with reasonable chairs. The service was good and friendly. We had crispy duck and steamed...fish in sweet and sour sauce. Both were very tasty. We really enjoyed our meal here and would recommend this restaurant.More

The place is a bit further away from the palace/ city centre. We got taken to the third floor which is a nice rooftop terrace. The restaurant was mainly visited by locals. First we received a “western menu” but when we asked for the drinks...menu we also received a second menu which had many more and cheaper options to choose and try. The food was okay, maybe the way it was presented just on simple white plates (very simple/basic) with nothing around (colour/leaves/decoration etc.) didn’t help. Felt a bit like that they didn’t want us there unlike in the other restaurants in Myanmar. It was all a bit odd that evening - maybe bad timing.More

With 3 floors of restaurant space, this diner has enough dining space that matches their very large menu! On entry, the ground floor looks rather like it caters for the local community, the first floor has an air-conditioned dining room, and the top terrace is...open air, where we chose to sit, on a very warm evening with an ice cold Myanmar beer. There are 2 menus to choose from, the BBQ menu and the Ala carte Asian menu. We opted for the Asian cuisine, that included a Rakhine-style clay pot. All portions were rather large for just the 2 of us, and this restaurant would therefore be perfect for a large group of people, allowing them to taste a large variety of dishes. The menu is made easier for the diner by dividing the selections into the different proteins offered, and there are photographs of every dish on offer. We thoroughly enjoyed their duck claypot, the basil chicken and the two-way style prawns. The prawns were large, tasty and super-fresh. The price of our meal was very reasonable for the type and amount of food we received. The service is prompt, and the food is fresh...a perfect end to a day of touring in Mandalay's unrelenting heat!!More

This is one of my favorite places I’ve eaten so far in Mandalay. The food is DELICIOUS, it came fast, and it was served in a very large portion (the main course not the appetizer — the app was actually pretty small although very good)....I had the cashew chicken. I have found that a lot of restaurants tend to be stingy with the cashews and sometimes the chicken too and it’s mostly a pile of corns and carrots. Not the case here — it arrived in a large plate with rice and tons of chicken and cashews on top of the veggies and it tasted great. (Just watch for the peppers!) I also had the bbq Portland appetizer which was awesome. Seriously delicious food. The servings was so large that I left with takeout for a full meal tomorrow night. My server Zaw Win Tun was really friendly and his English was great. Overall service was excellent and I would highly recommend. My only word of caution would be that the they stop serving part of the menu well before 11pm (didn’t look at the clock but I think it was around 10:15) so just be sure to plan ahead and don’t come in after 10 if you want a full meal. But as I said, it’s a great place I will definitely come back to!More

This restaurant is right around the corner from the Moustache Brothers show and sits on a street with lots of street food options. The food here is good. We did a little bit of the BBQ and a little bit of the Chinese food. All...good. Worth a meal if you're in the neighborhood.More

The ground floor looks like an absolute local dive that no foreigner in his or her right mind would consider eating at. However, you climb the stairs to the 2nd floor and there is a dining room furnished with low coffee tables and rattan chairs....Not exactly easy to eat a multi course Chinese dinner on such a table. Keep climbing to the 3rd floor and you have regular dining tables in a reasonably comfortable roof top dining setting. The menu is gigantic with Burmese and English translations. However there are no colored photos of the dishes like you would see in your typical Chinese restaurant in Asia or the US. We ordered a Hong Kong style steamed sea bass 9,000k, stir fried chicken with basil since the Crispy chicken was already sold out at 6.30 pm and a 3 kinds of vegetables sautéed which turned out to be mushrooms, kailan and baby corn. The sir fried chicken and the 3 kinds of vegetables was ok but the steamed fish was butterflied and hidden under a layer of scallions and a salty soupy sauce. We ate the three dishes with steamed white rice. No self respecting Chinese would consider the food acceptable Chinese fare especially the expensive steamed sea bass. Instead of paper napkins, they provide a roll of toilet tissue in a dispenser, quite an unappetizing table setting. We ordered two tiger beers thinking they would be the small bottles. Instead we got two large bottles. No effort was made to explain that the bottles would be large. The bill totaled 23,000k and since the restaurant did not accept credit cards, I had to pay with a $20 US dollar bill. They brought back 3,000kbas change, which was a total exchange ripoff. I would strike this pseudo Chinese restaurant off the Mandalay dining list. Makes me wonder what these critics are smoking when they rate these restaurants!More
