Restaurant details
Dining options: Reservations
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.

“Popular cafe for the young Burmese”
Reviewed 2 February 2014

Not only good Western food but some tasty Asian-fusion dishes. Good wine and beer, and wonderful rum sours (a staple in Burma). Pleasant for lunch, maybe a bit of a café for dinner.

“Less a review”
Reviewed 31 January 2014 via mobile


More a warning.

The map has this restaurant in completely the wrong place.

Do not trust proximity searches or map based navigation.

Go retro and use the address!

“Eastern version of western”
Reviewed 31 January 2014 via mobile

I thought it was great but I was desperate for food that tasted like home!
Coffee was beautiful.... And the sandwich was okay, we all loved it but we were a little over the local food and that would influence our assessment.

“Good food and coffee”
Reviewed 7 January 2014

We actually liked this enough to eat there twice. The fish kabobs, in particular, are quite good, and the coffee drinks are also good.
