Came here for an anniversary dinner and while we had a good time overall, the food was not really up to the standard I had expected after reading other reviews.

We ordered lobster tempura, flammkuchen, and Vitelli tonato to start. The flammkuchen was quite nice and tasty but fairly dry. The Vitelli tonato was exceptional; the best dish we ordered over the course of the evening. Only suggestion would be that the chef doesn't totally smother the beef in sauce, but it was still fantastic. The lobster tempura was absolutely terrible in terms of taste and value. At 38,000 we were delivered what seemed to be a baby lobster tail, so heavily coated in breadcrumbs (and not tempura batter) you could barely find or taste the lobster. The only flavour in this dish came from the salad and that wasn't really very nice either. Definitely avoid this dish - at 38,000 its an absolute disgrace.

For main courses we ordered beef filet mignon and pork sisig. The beef was very well cooked and the accompanying side dishes nice. I really enjoyed the dish. The pork sisig was inedible due to being too chewy. The dish is supposed to be simmered until tender before being grilled and is naturally somewhat chewy given the ingredients, but this was simply inedible. We took it home for the dog to enjoy.

The Dessert were quite nice although the tiramisu was frozen inside. They tested good however. Cocktails were also enjoyable though there is a limited selection.

On arrival, the lady who greeted us was not very welcoming or friendly but the dinner service was really good, the service staff are attentive and alert.

We received a lovely welcome from the staff and enjoyed the relaxing ambiance of the garden for dinner and drinks. There is a very reasonably priced table d'hote menu with two or three course options, as well as an a la carte menu with a very good selection of dishes also very reasonably priced. The restaurant also has a nice wine/drinks menu. The service was excellent throughout the evening and the food was delicious. Highly recommended.

I went there with my husband to celebrate our anniversary after reading all the good reviews. The food is excellent, like every item is delicious. The servers are friendly (and cute I would say because this young man was constantly trying to communicate us in English for his betterment). Ended our meal with a tour in the restaurant. Definitely a must try in Yangon.

After hearing many great comments about Shwe Sa Bwe, I headed there for a celebration, and it exceeded my expectations.

Upon greeting us, the Restaurant Manager offered to take us around for a quick tour, including the kitchen - which was impeccably clean. I also admired how much thoughts they have put into the decor and color scheme.

Wine selection and the menu were amazing, we enjoyed every dish.
