“Burmese food.”
Review of Rangoon Tea House

Rangoon Tea House
Ranked #23 of 1,094 Restaurants in Yangon (Rangoon)
Price range: $5 - $20
Cuisines: Burmese
Description: Rangoon Tea House is a modern recreation of an old, colonial-era restaurant set in the heart of Yangon. The cuisine is inspired from that of local tea shops, whose traditions stretch back to when Burma was a part of British India when Rangoon was the second largest migration port in the world. That translates to the menu where you can find Mohinga, biryani, and chocolate samosas!

A Burnese friend brought me to the tea house. The food was ok, however no Tes Salad.
This restaurant is a very tipicule yup pay restaurant in the city. The service is excellent like every restaurant in Yagoon. A server stands close by to take care of your needs. By American standards, you are treated like a King in almost every restaurant in Myanmar.
If you want Bermese food their are other places that are better.

Second time back here. Noted that patrons are almost all foreigners, but I still like the food here. Especially the tea, mohinga and rangoon samosas. I've also tried the chicken curry, lentil soup, pork bao, fried chicken bao, chicken biryani, which are all decent, but not fantastic to me. Might suit your palette more, who knows! Come and try it for yourself!

Been there 3 times, twice with colleagues and once by myself while waiting for an appointment in downtown and to be out of the rain.
The place is easy to find, just tell the cab driver "Pansodan road - opposite Shwe Bank; Sharky's" and you can't miss it.
If you are looking for a nice aircon place and relatively clean and nice place to chill during your time exploring downtown Yangon, i recommend this place. It can get pretty crowded during weekends and public holidays, otherwise it's fine.
Wifi is terrible the one time i tried to log on, but that's fine if you are just hanging out with friends.

Excellent quality of meals. Ribs from Naga Land is my favorite. The restarurant is quite pricy yet it's worth it to go and have a goood time there. Lunchtime is quite noisy though. But Breakfast times are very pleasant with nice and quiet environment.

This is an upscale version of local tea shop with a twist of modern culinary skill. You can have traditional tea shop snacks such as Samosa, Prata and even full lunch or dinner dishes. A must try new menu item is claypot rice with Shan sausages and pickled cabbages. And of course complete your meal with a cup of Burmese sweet tea or Faluda dessert.
