“Simply delightful!”
Reviewed April 7, 2013

This is Asia as one imagines it, so depending on where you are staying, getting there and back provides a little challenge.

The setting is blissful and the staff were like everyone we encountered in the F&B industry in Myanmar, were excellent.

But let me advise something delightful, my wife and I had two simple and thoroughly enjoyable meals here as the sun set on a wonderful beach. Get a couple of bottles of Myanmar, the tomato and the tea leaf salads before enjoying three plates of fresh seafood (tiger prawns, barracuda and squid) simply grilled and you won't go far wrong!

I think it all came to under 20,000kyats as well!

Get there and enjoy it before it changes :-(

“Seafood extravaganza.”
Reviewed March 21, 2013

Clean, friendly family run and will do food to your liking. If you don't fancy any more chilli they won't put it in. They use bottled water to wash salads etc and for ice. Tiger prawns and crabs as good as you'll get anywhere in the world.

“Very tender tempura calamari”

Great small restaurant in the sand facing the ocean. Good range of seafood and curry. Beer nice and cold. Had very tender tempura prawns and calamari for a late lunch in the shade of umbrella with sea breeze. Yummy

“Heaven on the beach”
Reviewed March 9, 2013

Right on the beach, plain good food, perfect service, a big smile and a free desert on top makes The Green Umbrella our best restaurant on our 2 week Myanmar trip. Go, go, go.

“our favorite restaurant on the beach”
Reviewed March 7, 2013

We just loved the food there, the service and the whole atmosphere. It s family run place, they even offer desserts (banana flambé)If you cannot finish your bottle of wine, they pack it up for you. Try to be there early as it is not so big, you can book a table in advance.
