“Superb local food ideal for tasty lunch”
Reviewed 24 March 2014

Aung Thukha is in the road opposite the Savoy hotel, it serves excellent Myanmar food. You walk in and immediately after choosing your table you are directed to choose your curries from a varied range, someone will accompany you to explain what is what and what is hot, when you return to your table it's full of rice, vegetables and soup or spicy noodles depending on what is on offer that day. Really tasty food and incredible value. Always busy with local people. My tip is the Mutton curry.

“Delicious, traditional Myanmar food”
Reviewed 12 March 2014

Great choice of different Burmese dishes here, prepared in what appears to be a traditional style. Some dishes can be quite oily, but they were all very tasty. Good value too!

“This is the real deal - not for tourists”
Reviewed 28 February 2014

Where the locals eat - cheap & tasty. Have one of the ladies seat you & bring your drink, then go to the buffet to pick out your dishes. You will probably be the only westerner in the restaurant, but they are still friendly & welcoming. The owner was schmoozing the tables in his Harley-davidson t-shirt. For a real Burmese meal, try this!

“Best local meal”
Reviewed 12 January 2014

Go to this restaurant with reasonable expectations and you will have a fabulous experience. It is plain and somewhat self-service--you go to the counter, look at the dishes, choose the ones you want, and then they are brought to your table. The staff are very helpful and can tell you in English about the dishes. If you want food piping hot and freshly cooked to order, this is not the place for you. But if you want delicious local food, go!

Other reviewers here have commented on the amount of oil in some dishes. That is not uncommon for Burmese food, so choose dishes that have little oil. I had several vegetable dishes with no oil and they were delicious. My son had goat and enjoyed it so much he asked if he could lick the bowl. (Answer: no.)

I loved this restaurant. It was the best meal we had during our week in Myanmar.
