If this is the place I'm thinking of (mine was on 82nd and 27th sts) I would totally recommend eating here - good wholesome food at an unbeatable price, and an authentic local experience to boot. Vegetarian friendly.

It seems there's nothing Mandalayans like more than a good chapatti! This unnamed street stall springs up every evening in the south-west corner of 28th and 82nd street and it seems the locals love it. Whereas most restaurants we looked at were quite quiet, this place was buzzing with people and the 20 or so tables were almost all full.

The chapattis are excellent and watching the speed with which the cooks make them is mesmerising. They're each served with some potato curry, salad and spicy tamarind / chilli sauce then a choice of main curry. The vegetable and mutton were both fantastic - delicately spiced and full of flavour.

The owner, Usman, leads his team from the front, rushing between the tables, taking orders and making sure everyone is happy. He seemed genuinely delighted that we'd come to his restaurant.

Highly recommended and probably the best food we had in Burma.
