We came here for the first time on our second night in Myanmar, with a guide. We came back nearly 2 weeks later when we got back to Yangon without our guide, and the guys remembered us, shaking our hands and chatting to us about where we had gone and how much time left in Myanmar. It was a really nice touch to be welcomed back so warmly, like it was our local back home, and after that long I was surprised they remembered us, especially since our guide wasn’t with us. In 2 trips, we tried a lot, with our faves being the ribs, the prawns, and the whole tilapia. Others worth trying were the chicken roll/pork rolls, the broccoli, and the enoki mushrooms. I loved the chicken back, but my friends were less excited - it’s a fattier part of the chicken, so probably just up to personal preference.
We asked about prices every time we went up to the cart and they never wavered no matter who was at the cart - 2,000 kyats for all chicken & pork sticks, 4,000 for the prawns and other seafood sticks and 500 for the veggie sticks. I can’t remember the cost of the whole fish or the beers!
The staff was super attentive - they had a ruthless obsession with re-wiping down the tables, reorganising our beers and plates, getting us new chopsticks, etc. They also peeled all of our prawns for us and broke down and served the fish after bringing it to the table.
From what we could see, this was by far the most crowded restaurant on 19th Street. It operates on both sides of the street, and it was mostly locals both times we went - they of course sat us right out front in (I assume) an effort to draw in more westerners who were walking around. Not a western toilet in sight, but not the worst local toilet I’ve seen, and there was soap right there to wash up!
Great people watching, friendly staff, as clean as could be expected - would definitely recommend people give it a go in Chinatown!
