The Lashio Lay looks good from outside and inside. During lunchtime you find lots of tourists and some locals. During the afternoon, we were alone there. You can choose between lots of differents dishes and often get a soup of the day. My sensitive stomach still feels good after having a late lunch there and also the price is reasonable... More

Tasty and very cheap food, but we both had to run for the toilet the whole evening. The cooked food is left for display without heating before serving. I would only recommend this place, if you have a very strong stomach.

Super cheap (veg plates come at 1k kyat each and other at 1.5k kyat, basically bottomless plain rice at 500), for a lunch with rice, a chicken plate, a vegetable plate and a drink expect to pay 3k-3.5k kyat (around 2.5 EUR). The place is full of locals but also tourists, people are always smiling, food is great and hygiene... More
