    Ngwe Paung Kha: A great local restaurant

    by Avieira67 Updated Jul 2, 2014

    If I am not wrong, I have found this local restaurant close to the bus station.
    For those who know the Burmese language, the address can be read at the menu cover page.

    Favorite Dish: I ordered something with fermented bamboo. It was delicious.

    Min Maha: For breakfast

    by Avieira67 Written Nov 19, 2013

    This is one among many caffes where we can find children working. Unfortunately it is common to see children working in some caffes / restaurants in Burma.
    Just in front of Zeigyo Central Market there is another caffee where some children are working.

    Tootoo: Traditional Burmese Food

    by Avieira67 Updated Nov 8, 2013

    This is one of the restaurants where we find traditional Burmese food. They love to fry and add a lot of oil!
    The first time I tryed the fish sauce, made with shrimps, I didn't like it. The smell and tast are very strong. I advise you to use only a little of this sauce.

    Favorite Dish: I have tryed mouton. The food was very good.
    I liked the service and the ambience, but the only local was my motorbike guide.
    About the price, I think is overpriced.

    On the staircase to Mandalay Hill: A delicious snack

    by hydronetta Written Jan 9, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    On the way up to Mandalay Hill we got dissapointed climbing up and never reaching the top.... so we reached half way and then due to limited time we decided to start descending. On the way we had these lovely fleshly fried snacks made of rice and served with honey. Delicious, cheap and just the right thing to slow down our hunger. We had the chance to discuss with the owner's relative who spoke decent english (we even helped her a bit with her english lessons) and her young sibling who was happily playing around. A lot of these people have made these staircase as a living place as well.

    Aya Myit Tar Myanmar Restaurant: Not a good experience

    by albaaust Written Sep 2, 2006

    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Our guide recommended this restaurant as serving authentic Burmese food and it is in the Lonely Planet guide.

    When we got there there were certainly a lot of local people eating. As soon as we arrived the waiters brought various soups, vegetable dishes and condiments on top of what we ordered. It cetainly looked nice (see photo).

    However, on arrival my husband smelt something not nice (durian maybe) and when my brother took a couple of mouthfuls he could not eat any more so it was a big disappointment.
    We left most of it!

    Look at all the different condiments

    Ayeyarwady scene: Mandalay by the ayeyarwady river

    by prikje Updated Mar 16, 2006

    Our first evening in Mandalay , allready late when we were ready to go out for dinner.
    We asked our driver to bring us to a nice restaurant with a view.
    So we ended up in this restaurant which name says all there is to say : restaurant with scene over the ayeyarwady river.It was black dark so no view for us to enjoy.
    The same can be said about the food : spring rolls , crisp duck and fried shrimp we shared .
    Little or no taste,ancient traditional dances on the background very nice to see but didn't made the food taste better.

    U-Bein Bridge, Sunset: Mandalay, restaurant with a view on the bridge

    by chrisvandenbroucke Written Feb 2, 2004

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We asked and got fried curry and got a lovely plate with rice, vegetables and meat.
    We sat in the garden of the restaurant, near the water and were the only clients (at 2.30 pm, that's normal).
    The whole family came to watch if we liked what they had served and when I did the international 'thumb up' sign, they laughed and were satisfied.
    This is what I call diminishing the culture gap and traveling in a responsable way

    You can make up a name!: The street food is the BEST!

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This guy is getting is skiddle ready for the breakfast crowd. He will be making chapati type breads and tea! A great place for a breakfast! Most times breakfast will cost about US$.20 cents. So it won't break your wallet to eat here. I know some of you are paranoid of street food but for the most part the food is quite safe. I've gotten worse cases of the squirts from my local McDonalds then I did in Myanmar!!
