“One of the Best...”
Reviewed February 6, 2013

My husband and I are Polish-Americans born and raised in Europe and we are familiar with many great foods. We had a dinner at the Bodhi Tree 2 years ago and still remember how delicious it was. We spoke to the owners and they told us that she is a New Zealander and her husband is from Burma. Before they decided to open this restaurant, the husband went to Burma for a special training and to pick the best recipes for Burmese dishes. We highly recommend this reastaurant.

“Continues to be tops”
Reviewed January 31, 2013 via mobile

A very busy little place which is now relocated to Ilam Rd ( still shows on Trip Advisor as Colombo Str ) Restaurant perhaps lacks atmosphere of original place but at least it is up & thriving since the devastating earthquake. Continues to be very busy & reservations recommended . Food different & delicious - the Tea Leaf salad a standout. Staff pleasant & efficient

“Definately tasty”
Reviewed January 25, 2013 via mobile

A really good restaurant and I would definately go back. Food is entree size so you need to order a few dishes. Very tasty and reasonably simple.

“Not a place for lone traveller”
Reviewed January 22, 2013

The menu is simple and food is tasty. You need to be ordering a few dishes to go with your meal. I had to order a pork curry and rice, and it came with three big piece of pork.. and rice.. No vegetable or anything else to go with it. I think this is the best place to be dining with friends or partner then you could order more dishes and share it.

Oh, and make sure you make your reservation.
