Lovely atmosphere, decor and great host and relatively good food considering where we were. The pizza was consistently good as were the salads, however the pasta with tomato sauce was a bit plain and overcooked, the lentil soup had an odd taste, and the fried rice was very oily. The chocolate cake dessert we had though was tasty, it's a shame they had no ice cream as that would have been nice to try. Definitely see the film they screen at 7.30pm every evening, it provides an interesting insight into Burmese local culture.

Wonderfully decorated restaurant. Rare to find something similar in Myanmar. Avocado salad was delicious (basic with onion, tomato and lemon juice), chicken salad Europeanized thai version, very nice!
