We came here while looking for another restaurant but returned the following night. Food arrived in a matter of seconds with the inevitable soup and bottomless bowl of perfectly cooked rice. Food is delicious, abundant and varied. Lots of choices and really authentic Shan food.

We stumbled across this place by accident trying to find a vegetarian restaurant and I'm really glad we did. The owner lady is lovely and helped us pick some vegetarian food - the pumpkin curry is amazing! You select dishes from the buffet and they bring you rice, little soups and cucumber/cabbage to go with your meal. We've eaten here 3 times already and each time our meal for 2, including beer, has been less than 7000 kyat, and we've been stuffed every time!
The girls that run this place are great and are always working so hard!

We found this place via google map, and also the taxi driver recommended this place. The food was simple, but tasty and offered a great variety to choose from.
One of its owners (I believe they are sisters) offered us to taste each kind of food to make sure that we really liked it.
Loved the frangrant rice, soft and chewy.
and the price was unbelieveably cheap comparing to what you get. It probably cost us $10 per meal for the 3 of us. We were stuffed!
Highly recommended!

We tried to go here twice and both times it was all shut up and the person next door we think they said it's closed but couldn't speak English very well. It might have just been while we went there, but it was like 2 weeks apart and both times was completely locked up and didn't look like it was still in business

If you do wind up going to Mandalay and i wouldnt recommend it. This place is really nice and welcoming. The lady that runs it "MaMa" is so helpful and funny i think it would be hard not to get along with her. Some of the curries are really good and she will even let you try them all before you commit to ordering the a serve. Great place to sit and drink lots of big beers.
