Why Greenelephant Restaurants is special ?

It's hard to do better for Burmese cuisine than with Green Elephant's attractively presented multi-dish set menus. While these are aimed at tour groups, individuals can usually get a slightly adapted version on request. Ours featured six dishes including tasty roast-aubergine salad and a scrumptiously tangy mango-pork curry – one of our best meals in Myanmar.

Service is very obliging and a few tables are tucked within an air-conditioned Pyin Oo Lwin–style colonial-era building full of period relics (ask). Others spill out into a bamboo-tufted garden lit by lanterns and a less impressive pavilion space beside it.

Some must-try dishes:

Deep Fried Tofu

Red Curry with Chicken

Stir-Fried Mixed Vegetable in Oyster Sauce

Prawn Wrap in Crispy Pancakes

Crab Rangoon


How to get to Greenelephant Restaurants?

The restaurant is very short walk from the Yangon home of The Lady, Aung San Suu Kyi in center, which fronts the main road and so it is hard to miss. You can get there by walking or take taxi.

Our taxi driver got lost but eventually we arrived to join our group. The waiters could not have been more helpful and our choice of the 'degustation meal' was wise. Extremely good value. We were able to choose between at least 3 dishes for every course. The food was delicious. So pleased we made it to the Grenn Elephant and would like to commend the staff on their professionalism.

Nice yard and relatively good mixture of Thai and Burma good. A salad, a main course, a soup and a soft drink cost around 20,000Kyats (appro.20 USD)
