Why Danuphyu Daw Saw Yee Yangon is special ?

Danuphyu Daw Saw Yee, though this branch has only been around since 2007, has satiated the palates of locals and visitors alike for over fifty years. It's a little more expensive than similar places, but the various curries are tasty and all dishes are served with sides of soup (the sour vegetable soup is particularly good) and ngapi ye, a pungent dip served with par-boiled veggies and fresh herbs. The place tends to get noisy during peak hours, but the casual atmosphere allows for a fun dining experience where patrons can share a laugh or engage in some good conversation. Though the place is often busy, the level of service never falters. The waiters are attentive and will make sure you have everything you need.

Must try dishes:

Sat thar hnut (3,800 Ks)

Ngaku sin kaw (2,300 Ks)

My guide whilst I was in Yangon brought me to this restaurant and I am so glad he did. I would have been a little daunted trying to work out how to order food etc but he took care of that! I am quite easy to cater for since I will eat most things so that was easy for him. We had excellent chicken and prawn dishes with rice, soups and veg. It was all absolutely delicious. When we first arrived I said a little prayer in my head to the "god of holiday tummy" but I really need not have bothered it was clean, safe and delicious! Most of the people dining were locals though there was one other table with tourists on it. I felt as if I was getting an authentic meal - regardless it was tasty and fun.
