Reviewed October 10, 2013

This boat like restaurant need prior reservations. The food is buffet with a good variety of western and local cuisine. You will enjoy the traditional dance of the various ethnic groups in Myanmar - very colorful and unique. Worth the money to cap off the trip to Yangon

“Landmark of Yangon”
Reviewed September 25, 2013

I have to agree with most of the reviews, Karaweik Palace is not that bad, if we are not paying for the buffet and the show.

My family and I visited Kandawgyi Lake in late morning, and found the area was nice for a walk. Karaweik is just like a quiet sitting duck on a side of the lake. The structure looked nice with a clear reflection from the water. We found a nice place for taking photo on a bridge on the right of Karaweik. We had a nice lunch at one of the Thai food restaurant beside Karaweik.

If you think that paying a huge amount of money for the buffet and cultural performance is too risky (both budget and satisfaction), then you can just pay USD2 to enter the garden, walk around, take photo, perhap take a lunch, and leave.

Visiting Karaweik and taking photo with it is a must. It is a landmark of Yangon afterall. But going for the food and the show is optional. None of my family members regreted to miss the food and the show so far.

“Beautiful Dinner”
Reviewed September 12, 2013

Woooow...I sure did love the dinner, the puppet show and Burmese cultural dances. Is very appropriate for evening dinners. The service was really great......

“Don't waste your time and money!”
Reviewed September 10, 2013

Don't be deceived by the dazzling glamour.

20000 kyats is simply exorbitant for substandard food and boring performances. The restaurant is enormous, with only 3 or 4 waiters running like headless chickens. Used plates piled up on each table. Food at the buffet area was not replenished fast enough and ran out due to the huge crowd of guests. Ice-cream melted and did not look so appetizing at all.

Performances were mainly Burmese traditional dances.

I would say it was the worst food we had tasted in Yangon during our 4-day visit.

“Don't go in for food”
Reviewed September 1, 2013

Pretty from the outside but the park fees and mediocre food (which supports the government) make this a pass. Even the show couldn't take the sting out of giving the money to the Military.
