We had an amazing dinner at Seeds on our last night in Myanmar.

The setting is beautiful, elegant and modern with both indoor and outdoor seating looking out on a small lake. We were greeted warmly by Lucia, who is one of the Swiss owners and the creative/conceptual force behind the restaurant's name, story, design elements and commitment to staff training and building schools in the country to further education. We were impressed before even touching a bit of food!

Lucia's husband, Felix is the chef and everything we tried was delicious and prepared to the highest global standards, from the starters and mains to the cheese plate at the end (all the cheeses are currently flown in to the country as Myanmar doesn’t yet have domestic production).

The restaurant is not far from the airport. We had a late night flight and were so happy to have made this reservation as a last memory of our time touring the country.

Had the pleasant experience of visiting Seeds for dinner during a recent business trip. Read a lot about the restaurant from TripAdvisor and went with high expectations.

Seeds is situated by the lake with a great view of the sunset. Perfect for a romantic evening or a special occasion. The setting was absolutely gorgeous and we took lots of pics.

We were warmly greeted and usher to our table by the Fire Pavilion. It was great as we had some privacy. When seated at one of the Pavilions, one needs to order from the Elements Menu which we were happy to do.

Service was good and I could tell that the staff were well trained. We were even greeted by the lady owner, wife of the Chef. Even had the pleasure of having the Chef day goodbye to us when we were leaving. It was just a coincidence though.

And now comes the food. The specialty breads served were really nice. Especially loved the mango bread. The plate of starters was complementary but not everything was nice so we left some samosa and something else behind. The entree of prawn salad and foie gras were delicious. The ravioli was very nice too. The mains of fish and lamb were decent, not great. By the time dessert came, we were both stuffed. Oh, there was a cheese platter before dessert as well with three types of cheeses - probably cheddar, Brie and blue cheese.

It was a special occasion and Seeds were so nice to make a small cake and play a song for us. A nice touch! We were very happy with how the evening went and it was definitely a memorable night for us. For us, the price of dinner menu USD78 was affordable but i reckon it would be exorbitant by Myanmar standards. Happy to return to Seeds the next time we’re in Rangoon.

We decided to to go for some Fine Dining to celebrate our wedding anniversary. The Seeds Restaurant was to be our choice. Expecting to just enjoy some fine food, the whole evening turned out to be a memorable event we will not forget for a long time. Arriving at the Seeds Restaurant is like entering a different world. Everything, the location, the decor, the soft background music, the staff, the drinks, the food and the choice of wines is carefully matched and selected to create a perfect harmony. Never before have we experienced such attentive, efficient and polite staff in all our travels.

After having cocktails while enjoying a spectacular sunset at the lake shore, we moved to have our dinner at the "Birds Nest", one of the four private dining tables at the Seeds. Our seven-course dinner was an absolute delight for the pallet as well as for the eye in a perfectly romantic environment. Every course was simply exquisite, cooked and presented to perfection. It was a trip to highest levels of Haute Cuisine. To crown the evening, some of the staff members, one with a guitar, came up to the "Birds Neat" after our meal to sing a beautifully romantic song for us. This gesture was so touching, I could not stop some tears rolling down my cheeks.

Thank you, owners and all staff of seeds. We had an unforgettable evening with you.

We were completely delighted to find such an exceptional restaurant during our weekend visit to Yangon. The food is delicious, the wine menu extensive, and the service extraordinary.

Than Htike was our server and he was attentive to our needs and provided professional service at the highest level. He was also friendly with a warm personality.

Felix, the owner, went to every table to greet guest and make certain they were satisfied with the meal and service. He was charming and knows how to run a gourmet restaurant.

The overall experience was perfect in every way. We highly recommend everything about Seeds Restaurant.
