Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

A pleasant and mellow choice for dinner. Super clean place, very friendly staff, delicious menu. Couldn't have asked for a better first meal in Myanmar! Shan cuisine is fantastic for vegetarians, BTW.

I felt the food was well prepared. It is a clean environment. A family run business with children there in the restaurant.

I have the feeling like having Thai food but making in Burmese style. You must try the sticky dry noodle which is signature. The chicken in stir fried vegetable tastes very good. They make real fruit juice. I love the avocado and carrot juice so...much. The waiter I assumed he might be the owner as well speaks very good English. The restaurant is Good for both lunch and dinner.More

Love the variety of food! and the experience of sharing many dishes with friends. favorite must be the rice with tea leaf salad with fried egg on top. Could have that for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Staff is very kind and if you happen to...meet Wai Wai... a very inspiring, smart and vibrant Burmese lady.More

We were looking for a Chinese restaurant and hit upon this restaurant. However, this is not a Chinese restaurant at all. It is a small restaurant with a few tables on the ground floor and a few more in the mezzanine where the seating is...cross-legged on a low table. Menu is small and the quantity served was also small but the prices were reasonable. We ended up ordering burmese dishes- 1 veg and 1 non-vegetarian. Both dishes were welk-flavoured and tasty. There is a story hung on the wall about how the owner moved to Yangon from a small town, toiled hard doing multiple jobs and then started on her own, establishing a chain of businesses. It us a story of hard wirk and entrepreneurship that makes interesting reading. The cost of a meal for two was apprix USD 50More

We went here for dinner. Nothing fancy, but a very good place for amazing local food (at very small prices). Featuring a downstairs area, and a shoes-off upstairs area.

The best food I've had in Myanmar and maybe even the best noodle soup I've ever had? Super friendly service and lovely family that run the place. The sticky noodle soup is 5 star++++++

Not a good atmosphere. The owner doesn't really care. Watchet movie and the food was not tasty. The only possitive point was free water
