“Good service and good food in a colonial dining room”
Reviewed 28 January 2014

Beautifully presented food in a relaxing atmosphere. The dining room was very impressive with friendly well trained staff. We would eat there again if we revisit Yangon. We had to pay in cash which was surprising but the 3 courses and wine for two only came to $165 including a 10% service charge.

“A lovely step back in time”
Reviewed 25 January 2014 via mobile

We shared both the high tea ( Mynamar) and the afternoon tea (English) between two. Both were good and made for a great mix. Great experience in a renovated colonial hotel.

“High Tea - just ok”
Reviewed 21 January 2014 via mobile

Not many people in restaurant but we waited 30 mins for high tea. Cakes and scones were a bit dry. The savoury sandwiches were ok. The fruit tart and lemon curd tart were very yummy. Service rather poor, staff seemed to have no motivation. Needs some restoration to bring it back to its former glory. US$17 ++ each.

“Old-world elegance; very good food”
Reviewed 19 January 2014

We went to the Strand for tea and liked it so much we went back for dinner. Its old-world colonial charm remains, and the food is excellent. We had the set menu, which was $55 for 5 courses and though expensive by Yangon standards it was good value for the quality of the food and setting. The crab cakes were outstanding!
