Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This restaurant has a really chilled atmosphere with lovely plants and a water feature inside. The staff were very friendly and the food was amazing! We’ve never had Burmese food before but everything tasted fresh and they made dishes spicier for us on request. Best...part? It was super affordable!More

This was our first time having Burmese food and it was spectacular! We ordered 3 vegetarian dishes and each was sublime. The tea leaf salad was our favorite but we loved them all. The flavor was more herbal than chili/curry Thai dishes and a welcomed...break from the Khao Soi/Pad Thai/street food circuit. The restaurant was nicely decorated and the service was very friendly. If you’ve never had Burmese food, you must eat here! You won’t regret it!More

Very good food with a nice variety of choices. We all got the Tea Leaf Salad we all enjoyed it. The other main dishes were equally pleasing.

We were a bit overwhelmed when we arrived in Chiang Mai and found this restaurant as it was nearby and recommended in lonely planet. It was lovely, very affordable, food great (loved meatballs especially), great service, clean, charming. Not as posh and 'high end' as...some of the photos suggest, which suited us fine.More

We were Thailand for a 2 week vacation and we visited Bangkok, Phuket and Chaing Mai. Out of all of the places we ate at on this trip, this place by far was the best food we had. Par Pat Toke was simply phenomenal!

Truly enjoyed the food. The penny leave salad brought back memories of time spent in Myanmar. Greatful that the food was less oily than in some restaurants in Myanmar

This Burmese restaurant just north of Thapae Gate is a step or two up from the average street restaurant. For one thing, it’s not actually on the street—its decorated entry hall leads to an open-air dining room replete with a small garden, Buddhist sculptures, and...goldfish pond. I like the salads and stir-fry dishes best. The waitstaff also kept my prescription sunglasses behind the counter for a week when I left them there and thought I’d lost them somewhere else.More

Nice burmese restaurant, near the gate. Delicious dishes, and very affordable. Different atmosphere and taste as the fantastic Thai cuisine. Try to have a table more by the window, deeper in the restaurant I found it a little too dark.

With Myanmar cuisine being one of our favourite and living for years in Mandalay we truly looked forward to this visit. Unfortunately the food was a bit of a let down flavour wise. The Laphet thoke was good, the comfort that only a tealeaf salad...can give was there. Having had many bowls of Shan Kao Swè for lunch we were let down by the taste of the Shan noodles, or the lack of taste. The yummy green mustard pickles, chilli oil and fried garlic (or tofu fritters when lucky) often served as a topping / side and adding so much to this dish were left out unfortunately. The chicken curry was ok. The setting is really nice and so is the staff. Shan Kao Swè Laphet thoke Kyat thar hinMore

Visited this restaurant a few days ago. Never had birmese food before but I loved it. Don't know for sure the meal that I had but it was something vegetarian with tofu. Great taste some of the best dishes I had the last few weeks.

Yes, many restaurants serve excellent salads also, either as features or as sides. The specialities here are Burmese food, however, not salads.
