This was the most expensive meal we ate during our 3 weeks in Myanmar and the food ranged from inedible (honey chicken) to mediocre (the mushroom duck). Within a half an hour of finishing our meal, both my husband and I had stomach pains which spiraled downward into full blown food poisoning. We spent the next two days unable to leave our hotel room. Not fun. On a positive note, the view was lovely and the service was friendly.

On our second day in Bagan we were taken to this restaurant, located by the river, for our lunch, along with every other tourist in the area! You drive through Bagan new town to get to the location, which us interesting because it isn't that new!

We had chicken fried rice and it was delicious! There were loads of vegetables in the rice, all chopped small but still identifiable, not just a mush of green things. The chicken was white and plentiful, not leftovers from the wings and it was moist and flavoursome.

Service was good and we could see that others were thoroughly enjoying set menus and their own choices from a good menu selection.

This restaurant is situated overlooking a creak of the Irrawaddy river. It is a delightfully peaceful spot, where you can observe local fishermen and farmers working. We had a Chinese meal here- excellent fish, chicken with cashew nuts, lovely vegetables, but I think Morning Glory is an acquired taste.

We stopped off here on recommendation of our guide, during a private guided tour - and while the shaded, open air setting offers great views of the Irrawaddy, the place is cavernous.
It's size makes it a magnet for huge tour bus groups, which can tend to dominate the whole dining area and are usually best avoided by independent & small group travellers.

I also thought the food we were served was quite disappointing - although maybe I just didn't chose the right dish. I ordered a noodle soup - which I'd thoroughly enjoyed in several other restaurants during previous lunches (especially in Inle Lake), but Sunset Garden's version was bland tourist fare - generic tasting bouillon with bits of carrot, cabbage, corn & thin egg noodle floating in it, plus a little meat.

Service was fine and the dish was perfectly edible (nothing offensive about it) but it lacked the variety of fresh ingredients & vibrancy of flavours of other noodle soups I tried elsewhere.

The setting of this restaurant overlooking the river and within view of many of the most important temples in Bagan is a great place to dine as the sun sets. Our guide had his wedding reception here so he really likes it and so did we. They gave a menu with a large number of choices...and we all liked what we ordered. The staff were friendly and efficient.
