“Tourist heaven?”
Reviewed 23 April 2014

Ok, we had a very good meal here, our last night in Myanmar.
But it is not the kind of place where the Burmese would go.
Full of western tour groups.
But good food!

We were recommended to go to Padonmar by the hotel. Great food, service, atmosphere and most of all great value. $30 US for 2 courses and drinks for 2 of us. Highly recommend.

“Simple lovely”
Reviewed 19 April 2014 via mobile

Very homely food. We had fish cakes. Myanmar Aurbergine salad which was interesting flavour. Papaya salad. Chicken Thai style with red chilli paste. Mutton curry with chick pea. Coconut rice and tomatoe rice were lovely. Two juice drinks. It came to under 40000kyat with charges.

Indoor and outdoor seating. Lovely decor inside. Take a tour. Many like the outside garden setting. Book or come early cos after 7pm they get busy.

There's always someone who speaks English to assist in ordering. Taxis available outside. A good experience which requires another visit next time.

“Excellent food excellent ambience”
Reviewed 19 April 2014 via mobile

Was invited to Padonmar by some friends who live and work in Yangon.
It was a lovely experience.
The food was local, varied, well cooked, well presented and was very tasty and very reasonably priced.
I note that it is only 15th of Yangon Restaurants however, Padonmar has had over 260 reviews yet 10 in the top 15 have not had 260 reviews between all of them.
If you do eat out on TA recommendations, look at the number and consistency of the reviews, don't just choose the number one on the list as all 12 good reviews it has may not give an entirely accurate picture.

“Good food and good value”
Reviewed 15 April 2014 via mobile

This is our second visit to Padonmar, the last visit being a year ago. The food is still great and the service excellent. We decided to eat indoors, to enjoy the air condition room as it was a hot day. Surprising that there were many who chose to eat outdoors in the garden area. The local food and especially the curry was awesome. The waiters were helpful with their recommendation of the various local dishes and were generous too with a constant supply of crackers that we could enjoy with our beers. The dining experience was inexpensive as our party of four spent less than US$80. I will certainly make a return visit.
