Description: A short walk from Red Canal Hotel but take a torch as limited street lighting. A great bistro style restaurant serving a large range if European (Try the Beef steak or fish and chips) and Asian food, main courses K5000 – K7000. A good selection of French and Australian wine starting from K12,500 per bottle. Fun atmosphere with fast friendly service. Busy on the nights we were there with mainly a younger local crowd so get there early for a table.

Nice location in North Mandalay by the Old Palace moat, lively and full of young locals i.e. not touristy! Nice ambiance. We arrived early evening when it was not too packed and had good service. Mostly western food. Strongly recommend their Mandalay rum sours (ask for low sugar if you don't like it too sweet) - at KT 300 (($0.30) each, very good value and the Mandalay rum is really great quality made from local sugar cane.
As others have said, bring a torch as street lighting at night is bad (we walked from Red Canal hotel which took c 10 minutes).

We came in and sat down. And waited. Waved our hands. A waiter came over and gave us the wifi password then walked away when we attempted to order drinks. They just lost the business of two resident expats with money to spend.

Nice bar with western style.

The menu seems rich enough and the plates well presented.

I tried a beef hamburger, it was not bad (the meat was over cooked though).
The price is ridiculously low.


I will try it another time before leaving Mandalay

This restaurant could be in any city in the world. The food and the diners were the most sophisticated and international that we experienced in Burma. Cell phones and western dress were at every table. And the food was very good. Our guide preordered our dinners so we did not get to see the menu. I would recommend this restaurant as a different experience in Burmese dining.
