Cheap , nice and easy going. I love tamarind salad , bean soup and fraud egg. The staff is very polite. I come here almost everyday. Food is cheap. They even cook everything for me without tomato. Keep it up guys.

Don't expect the Ritz as it's more of a street food eatery but it's authentic and wonderful Burmese food. There's street side as well as an inside room and it was quite busy when we were there for lunch. The tea leaf salad (almost their national dish) was amazing, as was the penny wort salad and goat curry. The inside... More

Have eaten here three times. Good superb, highly recommend the eggplant curry. It's like home cooking. Sure the place is not fine dining but neither is eating from a Thai food cart. Their bean soup is like a mildly spiced dal. Very good

The food is average, certainly nothing special. The cheapest in the Nimman area. I would personally rather spend the extra 5-10 baht for BETTER FOOD. This restaurant is a DUMP. They need to pressure wash the entire building, its so disgusting. Big cockroaches creeping behind the fish sauce bottles. The owner is the only cook so be prepared to wait... More

Not the cleanest appearance--you can enjoy basic Burmese food in an atmosphere that presents life as it was 40 years ago in CM--pre-Lonely Planet etc inspired travel boom, let alone Internet. Why do you travel, to dine in trendy newly created spaces? want to step out of the tourist bubble, for just a moment for a decent meal? Besides the... More

Went here after we went to another burmese place by the west gate,which was way better. The prices were better here but I would rather pay for more flavor

Restaurant is at the top of Soi 8 (opposite Soi 13) Nimmanhaemin Road, across the road from the 7-11 at the corner of Soi 8. Check what is on the menu by looking at the pots on the table at the front by the cooking area. Authentic Myanmar taste, prices very budget friendly. I recommend the dhal soup, aubergine curry,...

Low-key but popular eating place, with Burmese and Thai menus, and quite extensive range of food to try, including salads and noodle dishes. Tea leaf salad worth trying.

I followed the Guardian website which highly recommended on this typical restaurant. I didnt try the Burmese food. But the Thai food was delicious and super cheap!

They have the best tamarind salad! I've tried the mango salad and tea leaf salad and they are good as well. Very cheap and quick service, although the place might need a boost up.
