“Delightful Restaurant with Marvelous Staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 22, 2014

I went to Beyond Taste three times during my short stay in Nyaungshwe, and not just for the free Wifi. They had daily specials that I didn't want to miss. The chicken cordon blue with orange sauce was quite good, and a welcome change from the usual curries, though those are certainly available as well. The manager and the staff were great. They even sang Happy Birthday to me which was quite special in that setting.

“But did not cut the mustard!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 22, 2014 via mobile

Seduced by the good reviews and the nice atmosphere you could feel from the street (traditional bamboo house with lots of lights and lampoons), we pushed the door of Beyond Taste. Warmly welcomed, we were guided to the upstair balcony, overlooking the street, very quiet after eight o'clock...
Like lots of restaurants in Myanmar, this is a bit a Jack of all trade, with a mix of Shan, Chinese and western dishes. A good advise, stay with the asian food. My husband tried the spaghetti carbonara and they were awfully sweet. I do not know what kinda cream or cheese they use but the result is sweet pasta...
On the contrary, the fish fingers were delicious and my Malaysian type curry was quite good. Not exceptional but tasty. Actually, very good in terms of Burmese cooking standards.
The best here is the service. Excellent staff! So helpful and smiling. They really do their best.

“Great food, great service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 19, 2014

The restaurant is near PYI Guesthouse. From our table on the 2nd floor balcony we can watch the activities on the street. Food portions aren't big but adequate. They are well prepared and very tasty. Rice is not included with the meal and costs 500 kyat extra. The waiter is friendly and attentive.

There is a small selection of souvenir on the 2nd floor and the price is good. If you need to use the bathroom which is clean, it's a long walk through the courtyard at the back of the restaurant and a flashlight is recommended at night.

“What a wonderful place!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 11, 2014

The food is excellent and the service professional. This restaurant is also very pretty with a nice view of the kitchen on the lower floor and a nice balcony on the second floor. Clean, efficient, vast range of food. We ate there three times and we were not disappointed. Not to miss if you are in Nyaungshwe. A bit more expensive than the other places around, but definitely worth it!

“Wonderful setting and service”

I like the service of the waiter, he is a young guy working during his school break. I think he deserve some praise because of him, i felt like home and the food here is excellent.
