You can eat the same food for half the price many other places. Overpriced if you ask me. Food was okey, but not worth 6000 for one main dish, you also had to order sides for 1000-2000 if you didn't want to leave hungry.

Some of the reviews here really puzzle me. We ate here twice at the beginning and end of our week in the area. A total mix of people with lots of locals. And a pet chicken. Very reasonably priced. Superb Shan noodles for lunch. Tasty mutton (goat) curry and duck for dinner. Friendly service. Highly recommend.

There are more than one RV in Sittwe. One is by the sea, as you can see from the visitors' photos and another one in the city. We went to the one in the city when we first landed in Sittwe. The food was almost Yangon price but not as well prepared as most of the restaurant in Yangon. It... More

We went to the seafront one. Good food, nice place, but the staff, mostly kids, bring you your dishes and then whispers comments to each other about you, which gets quickly annoying.

d This is a relatively expensive restaurant for the area, but my meals here all were well prepared and presented. The clientele tends toward expat/NGO types, locals having business meals and tourists.

There were few alternatives in this back water and we tried this restaurant. My seafood soup was a pleasant surprise. Fried squid was tender. Fried vegetables was ok. Staff good . Black out when were dinning. Better than expected. Well patronised by locals.

We dined here on our last night in Sittwe. The service was excellent, and the food delicious. I had chicken with cashew nuts and fried mixed veg. Yum! Cost a little more than average, but it was well worth it.
