Came across this training restaurant by chance. Great food and wonderful staff. The specials of the day were incredibly tasty. We were lucky to meet some of the trainees and they practiced their English on us :)

The staff are lovely. Excellent service for students in training, food was delicious especially the nutty banana. Drinks where ice cold and refreshing on a warm day. Will be back before I leave Bagan

Very tasteful food, very friendly staff... I ended up eating there 3 nights in a row as it was right next to the hotel and it was so nice! Definitely worth going even if you are on the other side of town!

I like the concept of the restaurant, which is why we chose it. The food turned out to be quite good. The eggplant salad is fantastic. The beef curry was good and I can't recall the other dish (so middle of the road at best)....More

Description
The Sanon Training Restaurant is a non-profit social enterprise. 'Sanon' meaning turmeric pays homage to classic Burmese influences. You'll experience local creative cuisine and receive great service. We focused on providing fantastic food and service but also changing the lives of disadvantaged youth by giving them first class training in hospitality and by providing meaningful employment opportunities. So come and visit us, relax, enjoy our clean but comfortable amenities, try some fantastic food and support a very worthy cause. Sanon is a non-profit social enterprise, all profits from the restaurant go to maintaining the restaurant, the students and our training program. We strive to make the restaurant as self-sufficient as possible but to keep operating we still need the support of generous patrons.
