We were taken by our guide, who ordered for us having discussed options with us. There is a large menu with pictures, but this was a good way to do it, as we wanted to be sure to have Burmese food rather than their attempt at Chinese or Thai. When the food came, it was very good. The mango for dessert was the best we had! Service was quick, efficient and friendly. Recommended
Our travelling group of 7 had lunch arranged through a travel agent. As the restaurant was expecting us, it was disappointing that the dishes, and steamed rice, came lukewarm... to match our dismal experience. Consider this. We lunched at nearly 4pm following our arrival at Yangon Airport and the subsequent hassle changing rooms at our assigned hotel. There were no diners besides us. The tired, somewhat fading wallpaper that draped the outlet belies the charming decor. We ordered our dishes, which came fast and furious, but not hot. These were promptly served as if the wait staff and kitchen crew were waiting to rush home. That the photos featured show a spoon reflects the couldnt-care-less attitude of the wait staff who plonked the spoons onto each dish even as we were arranging the dishes for a photo-shoot. And as each dish was tabled, we had to ask, and got mumbled response as to what the dish contained. It was an unappealing introduction to Burma that became the hallmark defining moment for newcomer me. Our visit coincided with the onset of the monsoon season. It was off-peak where tourist arrivals are concerned. One would imagine our custom will be most welcomed and that we would be served well. Not so, for sure!
The good ambiance with pretty lanterns hanging outside the restaurant, the clean and neat rows of tables and chairs, the photos hanging on the wall showing important people who had visited the restaurant and a neatly typed out menu had me all charged up anticipating a wonderful evening with good food and good company. Alas, it was not to be..The lentil soup was bland and the sauteed watercress (water spinach or water convolvulus) was full of shoots with minimal leaves. We just did not enjoy our dinner here.
