After the long walk exploring the Pindaya Cave, this restaurant is the perfect place to relax, recharge and fill up the empty stomach. Restrooms are clean, the whole area is well maintained. Service is good, food preparation is fast and has wide selections of local food. The restaurant offers its guests a good view of the lake.

OK I confessed I went on a packaged fly in tour from Mandalay and we were offered sweet and sour pork and fried rice (no kidding!!) which was not even on the menu (I mean why should they given that we were offered "farang" Chinese food in a Burmese / Western restaurant!!!). It was about USD 8 and the espresso... More

Management response:

I'm Kelvin who is always eaten there! Burmese / Western Restaurant???? Omg! That restaurant can offer " Traditional (DaNu) Foods, Chinese Foods and Western Foods"!!! I think you need to read their menus clearly before you drunk! And then my favorite is hot espresso, it is only 3$. Let's see every beverages are 1 to 5$, i never seen over... More

After Pindaya Cave, we stopped at Green Tea restaurant for lunch. Our table had a good view overlooking the river and it was very calming. We order green tea salad, pumpkin with peanut curry, mixed vegetable curry, plain rice, water and coca cola. Food was very tasty. Waiter spoke good English and food price was cheap. Toilet facility was very... More

We stopped here for lunch after an extended visit to the caves. Menu has local and international items. Great service, staff speaks good English and is attuned to international clientele (including prices). You can expect to be greeted in the parking lot by an employee handing you a traditional sun umbrella to have a comfortable few steps to the restaurant.

I really loved the food in Myanmar and I remember with pleasure any place, even the worst cabin in the road, where I ate but this restaurant definitely has been the best dinner of the entire trip. Delicious shrimp, good rice, but above all ... a very good white wine! We also had a good crepe for dessert. The environment... More

Stunning ambiance furnished all in wood with local decoration, very tasteful. But you should go there before high season when they have big groups coming in. You' ll feel like in a privat restaurant with very charming service and a seating half open with beautiful view on the river. It's just a short distance away from Pindaya cave

Excellent place for lunch after visiting Pindaya caves. 10 of us visited this restaurant and received excellent service. Great beer with free chips. Excellent appetizers. Friendly services, and they speak excellent English. Best of all is the view, very enjoyable. Excellent find.

Not so much choice I think in Pindaya but I was happily surprised... they adapted a local dish to vegetarian (as I am) and the food was really yummy. I was the only one in the restaurant (low season) but they made feel welcome and looked after me just fine. The building is also great - I stayed in and... More

Relaxing lake view. Clean. We flew in from Mandalay to Heho. Tried the beef curry which was tender and flavorful. The mixed vegetables were very well-fried with the wok heat. The brown bean soup was hardy with ginger bits. Rice was fluffy. Chocolate pancake was fluffy. Will definitely come back to this restaurant and recommend my friends. Staff can speak... More

Lunch on the wooden terrace overlooking the lake is a luxury experience. The table is set in style, the service is friendly and efficient. The food was delicious. Try the butterfish with peanut curry! And treat yourself to a desert. My choice was fried banana with honey: memorable!
