The Brilliance is a good choice for a lunch or dinner as the cooking is made by the mama who has a long experience. She cooks only on fire because she is afraid of the gas so the plates she prepares have the right taste ! All the family is working in the restaurant. The manager Aung Myat Thu has... More

We tried a lot of restaurant in Ngapali, but the Brilliance, even if it's not located on the beach, is definately the best. Fresh seafood, weel cooked (other restaurant on the beach are not able to cook fish at all). You can call him from your resort and the restaurant send you a free taxi. When we discovered it, we...

The owners are genuinly friendly, the food both fresh and home cooked, and what a cook! Oh my.. I had grilled barracuda, and at this point I had learned... More

This does not look like much (like most of the restaurants on the road side) but it is such great value for money and a good way to make sure the local people benefits from tourism. It is a much nicer experience than eating in one of the hotels on the beach. The owner and his wife were lovely and... More

Are here over the bayview hotel restaurant and found the seafood amazing. You will pay twice as much in your hotel and your food may be better presented but it will not taste better than the food here! Seems to be family run as most in Burma. Definitely recommended. The snapper was delicious. Drinks here a fraction of the cost... More

We ate here twice, and at both occassions the food (lobster, tuna, prawns, barracuda) was simply delicious. Aung Myat Thu and his wife make you feel very welcome - they're even more friendly than the Burmese people already are. He also arranges boat trips to go snorkelling or fishing.
