“Worth a stop for the view, but otherwise, not great”
Reviewed December 27, 2012

The view is nice, but that's where it ends. We started with mediocre cocktails and didn't receive very good service. The decor is strange, bad lighting, bad music. Needless to say, we left without ordering dinner.

“Top spot”
Reviewed December 18, 2012

Visited here on a lively and popular Friday night with a decent live band playing western covers with dancing. Quieter on other nights apparently but still well frequented. Occupying the top (20th floor) of a tower block it is quite a stylish establishment offering some of the best views of the city including a floodlit Shwedagon Pagoda. Prices are not cheap which is to be expected given the location but they are comparable to the city centre hotels. Food is well presented and service is sharp. Overall a place well worth trying...recommended.

Marvelous yangon view! easy communication, reasonable food and good service, here is a place you shall check it up. Relaxing atmosphere with a decent service, worth a visit. Very good place to chill out with friends & families.

“Nice view and friendly staff, food was good”
Reviewed November 7, 2012


The lady who appeared to be the manager was friendly and seemed to be doing all the work and translating, the other staff were helpful enough too though their English wasnt too good.

It was quite pricy but if you want a modern restaurant with a view in Yangon I suppose you have to pay for it.

We only wanted a small snack as we were jetlagged so a duck wrap and satay chicken were ordered and very tasty. Beer was okay priced as they had a special offer on draft but still a bit pricy.

We could see the Shwedagon Pagoda from our table and a few other sights over town.

I would go here again if I didnt have time to look for other restaurants to try something new.
