We ate in this restaurant twice. Absolutely loved the food. Additionally it has a great family atmosphere. You feel like you are a guest of the family having fresh home cooked food. Highly recommend this place.

As been written here before the food is great, especially the guacamole and pappadum dish, and the peanut tomato curry dish. Location is central and easy to find, and owners are super nice and welcoming. Try not to eat too much :)

We ate at Yar Pyi twice and loved it. Curries delicious and everything freshly made. It's just next toThe Moon (be kind to animals) and equally as yummy. Prices comparable. Try the banana spring rolls for a wicked treat

Well worth a visit, everything we tried was so tasty and the owners were great! Nice to find somewhere away from the Lonely planet recommendations.

Be Kind To Animals is just a credo, not the actual name of this restaurant, which is Yar Pyi Restaurant. This is a friendly family run establishment located very close to the crowded The Moon Restaurant, which also carries the prefix Be Kind To Animals. Yar Pyi is far less crowded, thus easier to get a table. The dishes were... More

This place is the perfect hang out. On a quiet little street, owned by an older couple. Cool and relaxing. The avacado dip was light and lemony and I couldn't stop eating it with the pappadums. Mango lassie was cold and gorgeous and I wanted to just keep ordering them. I also ordered one of the curries which was huge,... More

Was very impressed with the menu, service and quality of food. Everything from being asked if we wanted sugar in our fresh juice to some great recommendations including the guacamole with popadoms which was delish! We both had curries which were very flavoursome and the Spring rolls. The place across the way which is listed in the lonely planet seemed... More

As a meat eater, I was a little dubious about vegetarian restaurants. How foolish I was. Every dish was a little surprising, exceptionally tasty and cheap. The papaya salad was peanut based so very different from the Thai fish sauce based version, and the poppadoms with guacamole was like an Indian Salsa. Those dishes were so good I've forgotten the...

Ordered mango lassis, guacamole with pappadum, and coconut milk soup with chicken. All were delicious. Very friendly and welcoming family. They gave us a Burmese fried pancake for dessert on the house. Yummy.

We ate here one night after eating at the popular Moon restaurant the night before (across the road). This restaurant was just as delicious but less expensive! We really enjoyed the husband and wife 'team'..very nice people!
