I've been kind to this place with 3/5 as I ate a set menu chosen for me by Trailfinders. I was given a 'western' menu and I suspect this is not their strongpoint. We were told to choose one of four soups. Bizarrely we both had to choose the same soup since if they gave four soups on offer then... More

We ordered a sumptuous array of dishes including prawn curry , vegetable pasta , beef with rice and egg salad ,... More

We had lunch at this restaurant after a visit to the nearby Pindaya caves. The restaurant space is a beautiful teak wood hall hanging over the waters of a small artificial pond. The open room is very relaxing, and the breeze over the lake gives you the sense that you are eating al fresco. Burmese restaurants that I have been... More

We were there, a group of 20 and we ordered 8-9 different dishes to share among all of us. Everything we got was tasty - the entire group praised the restaurant for the good food that was served.

Besides the really nice location there is nothing good to tell about our visit. None of our four meals were tasty and my friend got really sick after the fried vermicelli. After trying her dish I felt not good anymore as well.

This is a beautiful open air restaurant near the Shwe Oo Min cave. I tried the butter fish with peanut curry (local Danu food) and it was delicious! The scenic lake view and excellent wifi make this an ideal lunch spot when visiting Pindaya!

Stopped off here for lunch after Pindaya caves and market, the restaurant and grounds are well maintained. Good views of the lake and the pumpkin soup was very tasty!

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
