“Trained for excellence”
Reviewed October 31, 2013 via mobile

The taxi drivers downtown were confused when I asked for the ride up here, but omg, this was worth the taxi mess and long drive.

Service was first class from the moment I entered, and the food really worth the money. Tomato tasting for starter with some strange flavours, a perfectly cooked chicken for main and my favorite - the signature chocolate mousse for dessert. Yum. The pre-appetizer with mushrooms and pre-dessert with lime, both on the house, were also really delicious.

I have been to a couple of training restaurants in SE Asia, and this is among the very best. I love the interior and the splendid atmosphere.

Well, not much more to be done before it deserves a five star rating. Very good. Thank you for a wonderful meal.

“Magnificent food, beautiful enterprise. A must visit!”
Reviewed October 29, 2013

Truly magnificent food and service. A highly commended enterprise training young people for restaurants and hotels, it delivers in spades - great food, not a wide choice but varied, greet cocktails and wine list, beautifully presented food that hit the mark. Elegant surroundings. Hard to surpass. It took just 20 minutes from central Yagoon to get there in heavy traffic. French menu and style. Visited the kitchen & really impressed with its cleanliness and efficiency. One of our top experiences in Myanmar.

“Great Food”
Reviewed October 23, 2013

Visited this restaurant for the first time yesterday and I'll certainly be back. I've eaten in many restaurants in Yangon where they serve very attractive food but at times the flavour is just not there. I can't say the same for SSB, the food was attractive and tasted great. I'd recommend this restaurant to anyone.

“Good Food, Extremely Slow Service”
Reviewed October 20, 2013

Well... what can you expect from a restaurant that trains students there?

The food was good... the wasabi mayo top-notch... and the ambience was warm.

The 'petit' down-side was that... the veal we all ordered was not well-done (though all of us requested it be well-done).

And... the service is extremely slow!! Other than that... it's a good place where they serve good food... but I'm not sure I'll be going there again... Only because of the slow service.
