“The feeling of a high end Chinese restaurant in Yangon”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 August 2013

With a massive menu they all the food you can imagine. Alert service clearing the plate instantly and the next dish comes just quick enough.

The menu also had some dim sum on top of the other dishes, this was not that good and I don't recommend it.

As far as I've come across this is the best luxurious Chinese restaurant in town.

“Attentive service and Great Chinese Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 August 2013

Went with a large group and we had a massive feast of many different dishes. All of good quality with attentive service changing big plates to smaller to make room for new dishes. The Beijing Duck was nicely prepared by the table and the duck introduced to us before being sliced. A piece of apple was used together with the skin in the bread giving it a nice flavour. One of my favourite dishes was the barbecued pork with honey. The Gong Bao Chicken was also a great classic dish. All in all, its nice to know that there is a good Chinese restaurant in Yangon.

“Best Chinese Restaurant in Yangon”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 June 2013

The new chef at the Summer Palace is excellent and the food is outstanding. I have eaten there on a number of occasions both for business and with friends. Recently my guest from Hong Kong and I had a business lunch there and he was extremely impressed with the food and service. The dim sum lunch is also a great option. All of our dishes were well presented and delicious. Service was attentive without being intrusive, allowing us to discuss business over our meal. There are also private rooms which provide an ideal setting for a lunch or dinner meeting or family and friends get together.

“Appalling service in restaurant - lack of professional supervision and training”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 May 2013 via mobile

Went for dim sum - nice new decor , good ac clean
Food was good but in small proportions , the restaurant supervisors are below standard and attitude seems to be the dish if the day . I virtually had to remove empty dishes from the table myself after 3 requests to do so . They never bring the food out in the correct order like the rice after the dessert
- this was once the best reputed chinese restaurant
In Yangon but there are better ones with better food and service like park royal 2 mins away . Meal ruined by poor service and ignorant attitude - come on traders u know better !!! It not only the decor but a whole package
