“Doesn't live up to the hype.”
Reviewed 20 April 2014

My friend and I found this restaurant through those restaurant top 10 lists for authentic foods list for the city. The review did say it wasn't the most tasty for authentic Burmese food but it was close by, so we decided to try it anyways. The restaurant is clean and two stories. We read that President Clinton came here to eat a few years earlier and we saw many tour groups coming it. The restaurant caters more to tourist and expats. The food was good but not memorable. The service was good but not outstanding. Overall, it was good experiences but not anything remarkable.

“A good place to stop by for lunch”
Reviewed 19 April 2014

A very good location (quiet and away from heavy traffic of Yangon) and the decoration of the restaurant is in colonial concept. They serve very good range of local cuisines to Asian cuisines with fair price for the service and quality.
It is worth to go there for at least once while visiting Yangon.

“Nice ambience”
Reviewed 8 April 2014

Setting in a colonial house, the ambiance inside is nice. Wide selection of Southeast Asia cuisine takes your time to decide. Foods are well presented and tasty.

“Really nice for Yangon”
Reviewed 6 April 2014

It felt like a nice restaurant in London or New York. Which is great if you're an expat or looking for a feeling of home, but also a bit sad to see how globalisation continues with the "McDonald's effect" of cultural homogenisation. That said, food was very tasty, staff were attentive and they had ice in the men's urinals.
