The Garden Bistro is inside Kandawgyi Park. The Bistro faces the park and there is a fancier restaurant area behind it facing the road. We went a couple of times to the Bistro. We tried local food the first time and burgers the second time. On both occasions the food was excellent and at very reasonable prices. The service was... More

We stopped here for a coffee in the morning and then again in the afternoon for a soft drink. Lovely cafe with very pleasant staff. The bistro sits on the edge of Lake kan Daw Gyi, has a huge menu and is open all day. A beautiful place to stop off away from the busy traffic in Yangon. They accept... More

We visited a couple of times. There are comfy chairs to sit in while you cool off with a cold beer or a cocktail. They don't have a Negroni on the cocktail list but they have all of the ingredients - thay will make one if you tell them what you want in it. The food was okay. We had... More

The food here was tasty but not much of it. We took a Burmese friend and there was nothing on the menu which he really liked. It is catering to a tourist market. The setting was nice and the service good.

It is quite expensive restaurant for Myanmar's level but meals were really tasty. We had some Thai meal with seafood and prawns were really great. You have to confirm price before order because for several dishes with meat choice they have prices for chicken or pork but seafood is extra pay which is not stated in the menu. The waiter... More

A great place to have a breakfast at morning . I didn't had dinner and lunch. Facing the KandawGyi Lake with beautiful greens and a perfect relaxing morning I enjoyed. Coffee and drinks are international standard and plenty of choices for breakfast. After 08:00 it may start to be crowded with foreigners and rich locals.

A very pleasant restaurant with excellent views over the lake. We had tom yum, pak choy and torfu with oyster sauce, chicken curry and rice. Service was o.k. but asking for water etc. felt a bit like an imposition. The food was rather bland and the tom yum didn't taste like tom yum and the chicken curry's taste was nothing... More

Best breakfast tea in the morning, with Chinese tea and coffee. 本人夫婦二人住在kandawgyi palace hotel, 因為前晚坐夜巴士到仰光才早上約8點, 所以未能check in, 故走路10分鐘都這店食早餐 店內氣氛舒適, 有多種點心可以選擇, 價錢合理, 二人點了4款點心連荼和咖啡才US$7
