“Inventive and charming”
Reviewed 17 August 2014

Had a perfectly seared eggplant starter followed by a succulent baked butterfish with veggies, plus a refreshing ginger-lemon juice. Service was charming and attentive. While the menu is not expansive, the dishes are exquisite. It's a lovely place to kick back after a day of pagoda hopping -- just around the corner from the NLD headquarters in New Bagan (close to Blue Bird, Myanmar Treasure Resort and Ruby True.

“very nice place in old Bagan near Ananda temple”
Reviewed 12 August 2014

On walking distance of our hotel @Tharabar gate. A nice hidden gem. Very nice food (as well Myanmar food as some pasta dishes). Lovely place to sit , very quiet. Very friendly service , but you need to have some patience , because it takes some time , but it is worth while.

“got sick from the food”
Reviewed 9 August 2014

Had dinner in New Bagan, small restaurant, extremely hot and very uncomfortable seats.
Food was not tasty, had the chicken curry and a bean salad. The curry had hardly any flavor and the chicken was far from tender. So I guess that they just pored some curry over the fried chicken and the prices are high! Poorly executed and worst of all we got sick after eating. Can not recommend.

“Make sure to have a meal here”
Reviewed 17 July 2014

One of the best restaurants in Old Bagan, although it can be a bit hard to find if it's dark. The meals are excellent- try the tea leaf salad or the local fish curry.
