I visited Sanon on my recent trip to Bagan and loved knowing about how they provide a home to disadvantaged youth of Myanmar and train them. There really are very few things that are better than supporting a place where it’s evident that your money would directly go and improve someone’s life, right? My friends and I were running short on time and could only try the ginger salad and some tea. And, even though the salad was delicious and a true epitome of local flavours, what I loved most about this place was how kind the staff was. Everyone always served with a smile on their faces and that is reason enough to visit here, if you ask me :)

So if you happen to drop by Bagan in future, we look forward to having you again - and definitely try some of our main dishes, a fusion of Burmese taste with a touch of contemporary flavours! Till then, please take care and stay safe.

I visited for dinner as well as attending a cooking class where the staff who are all trainees in hospitality were the teachers under the guide of their tutor. I also had a great coffee there. The dinner, specially chosen for its local flavour was delicious.

well worth a visit, food was good but not stunning although it was tasty and the beer was cold, a little pricy in comparison to other local places but all fir a good cause.

Stopped here for breakfast on the way to Mandalay. The food was really nice, lovely staff, and by eating there you're supporting a great organisation that gives young people a chance to learn a trade and a language that will help them for the rest of their lives :)

Sanon is not only a restaurant with great food and helpful nice people but also a non profit organisation which teaches young people a proper job and English skills. They support the disadvantaged people to find a job after the school and broaden their horizons. That was a pleasure to meet them and I can highly recommend cooking class as well delicious food! Great and safe place in Bagan!

We came here for dinner, read reviews and also wanted to support their advocacy. Ordered their specials for the day which was Spaghetti Bolognese with braised duck. Now I've never seen that on the meny before anywhere so decided to try that. But not to my liking. It just doesn't go well for me. Food and drinks were a bit pricey for Bagan area. I still want to support their objective but they still need a lot of improvement in terms of customer service and menu / dish selection.

Thank you so much for your visit and feedback - we are sorry to hear the spaghetti did not meet your standards. Whilst we strive to provide customers a seamless experience, we certainly do not expect every dish to be perfect. As a training restaurant providing opportunities for disadvantaged youths, we welcome your suggestions - so let us know where we let you down and we shall rectify this next time. Please give us another chance to delight you if you will be here for a few more days. Thank you once again and on behalf of our students, we wish you a memorable time in Myanmar.

This was my 6th time coming here and I will keep coming back. I work in Mandalay and make it to Bagan a few times a year. This is my favorite restaurant here and I recommend it to everyone who visits. We celebrated my dad’s birthday here last night and the staff made it memorable for him by coming out to sing happy birthday. We loved the squash and cheese fritters, tea leaf salad, caramelized pork, and coconut semolina cake.

We were very enthusiastic when we heard about this training restaurant for local youths. Wish we had time to take a cooking class and would recommend that you do for some good fun. The atmosphere is pleasant with vibrant energy and the food certainly holds promise. So give them support and have a decent meal here.....and talk to the kids too!

Had a lovely candlelit outside terrace table (thoughtfully equipped with anti mosquito lotion) and were efficiently brought drinks. Ordered watercress pakhora for starters - delicious! Then one of us had a wonderful Burmese lentil curry and the other a burger and fries! The curry was especially good and the service was attentive throughout, with the maitre D providing supportive oversight for the young trainees. As we were paying the bill, Sonia and Gordon, the volunteer trustees passed by and we chatted about the training foundation with them. It’s a newish Venture and it’s so good to see some Myanmar youngsters being trained up in hospitality and English! They’re doing a great job and we had a thoroughly enjoyable evening and dinner. You must try it...!

First and foremost, Sanon is a wonderful culinary training school/restaurant run by volunteers and staffed both in the kitchen and in the dining room by students eager to please, learn English and a restaurant skill. Your patronage will help an important cause. The management told me that they have specifically chosen to present a menu of moderate and accessible dishes knowing that Bagan is a tourist Mecca. Probably wise. Everything the four of us eat was fine or better. The Eggplant salad was excellent. Having said that, I think they should add some local specialties/traditional dishes with a more full flavored profile. Everything we ate could also have used a good healthy oomph in flavor and spice (not necessarily hotter but certainly hotter, when appropriate). They filter all of the water they use to clean and prepare foods (and ice) which is important to know.

Sanon Restaurant is a training establishment for young people to develop their english and all hospitality skills, resulting in them being placed in employment at the end of their training. They are well schooled by skilled Myanmaris and overseas volunteers with international experience. The food is competitively priced, tasty, true to the local and international diets and the service is 1sincere and enthusiastic. We visited 6 restaurants in Bagan in the week we were there and found Sanon was equal or better in quality to the others. Highly recommended for both the trainees and their clients. Definitely a win win. Congratulations Sanon.

We had a lovely meal at Sanon restaurant. pineapple and chilli cocktails followed by watercress and onion pakora, soft shell crab, caramelised pork, prawn and cat fish curry. All were really good with the pakora and pork being the standout dishes. We had a lovely crunchy banana fritter to finish. Portion size was good as is quality. Service was excellent. The young people are a credit to their teachers - polite, have good English, very willing and friendly. Highly recommended!

This place is a special place in Bagan, I would recommend the cookery class you learn so much about the culture, while learning to cook local delicacies and you are giving back to society as you are supporting with their training programme to give disadvantaged students a brighter future. The restaurant food is excellent & the staff really friendly and full of advise on what to do in Bagan.
