Ate here recently on a short trip to christchurch. Excellent food we loved everything we ordered. Recently travelled to burma and enjoyed the food there so thought would give it a go, was not disappointed. The dishes are entree sized and this is explained on the menu. Its not cheap, worked out at about $120 for two people including 5 burmese beers. It is worth the money though and I would go again if in christchurch.

This Burmese restaurant is exceptionally popular with the local. It's female friendly like and the food is leaning more towards vegetarian-healthy style. You have to book in advance to come here. It has since been shifted to the suburb of Ilam. For what it is, it's VERY expensive but the locals don't seem to mind.

The tea leaf salad is up there as some of the best food I've ever had ... We went with another couple, and so ordered eight mains (mains are entree size, which is advised on the menu), the beef kebabs, and deep fried chicken are amazing ... But the tea leaf salad (which is an actual starter) ... Wow, just wow ... Definitely not sharing that next time!! Book in advance, because its busy and very loud .. But the food is well worth it.

Thank Hey-Mrs-Robinson
