“An Italian disaster!”
Reviewed October 28, 2013

Our guide decided to surprise our tour group with Italian food, rather than the more traditional menu on offer.

Pizza and pasta at Inle Lake? Utterly appalling - the worst pizza and pasta I have ever had the displeasure to be served.

At least the Western style restrooms were clean.

“Try the Cheese Crepes”
Reviewed April 25, 2013

Visited two Golden Kite restaurants; one on Lake itself and one at Indeinn. Both good experiences with superb sweet and savoury crepes. Probably the best lunches we ate in Myanmar.

“Clean Restaurant”
Reviewed April 15, 2013

The restaurant in town is not as good as the one on Inle Lake. Small mean in town but the food is quite good. Do try the cocktails but beware if you have no head for alcohol as they are very potent, reasonably priced. We had very good service the first day we went but on the second day there was downpour so we went in there again as it was handy. The young waiter was just not interested in serving us at all, he was far more intent on playing games on his mobile. When we complained the manager did apologise and made sure after that we got served quickly.
Do try the one on Inle Lake as their Chinese food is excellent.

“Good Inexpensive Lunch in Town.”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

After we got off the boat, our tour guide suggested eating lunch at this restaurant. Surprisingly, everyone around us were eating pizza. We opted for some chicken with vegetables and a pork dish which were both very good but not spicy. Sitting under the electric fan was a welcome relief on a very hot and humid day..
