Yangon's ethnic diversity is reflected in the city's range of restaurants. Besides the wonderful Myanmar cuisine on offer, there are many great options for international dining, and I would like to recommend a few new and old favorites for you to try out.

Travel-Curator's City Tips

  • Myanmar doesn’t have a specific rule on tipping; it is not expected but always appreciated.
  • Prices of goods in supermarkets, pharmacies, restaurants, hotels, basic commodity shops, and on official transport, are usually fixed.
  • For rickshaws, tuk tuks, motos and all taxis in Asia, always bargain first, and make sure that you agree on the price before you start the service.
  • Most of Yangon is easy to get around on foot.
  • Take a taxi or tuk tuk to explore further out, such as to the Shwedagon Pagoda.
  • Dress modestly when visiting temples and Pagodas, and do not swim naked or topless in public.
  • Help to protect the Myanmar wildlife by refusing to purchase wildlife products.
  • Smile! It goes a long way with locals.
  • Always ask for permission before you take someone’s photo, and avoid photographing anything to do with the military.
  • Picking up rubbish and not littering sets a good example for the youths.

    Travel-Curator Says:

    Across from the Savoy Hotel and down a small side street, this longstanding institution is constantly bustling with locals and is one the best places to sample Bamar cuisine. Pick from the range of curries (fish, pork and mutton), all of which are served with a selection of delicious side dishes (soup, sauces, vegetables).

    Situated on the new Parkson terrace near Bogyoke Aung San Market, Bar Boon is a cool Dutch espresso bar with an outdoor terrace overlooking the bustling street below - brilliant for people-watching. Indoors they appear to be channeling a 70s vibe, with a warehouse-esque ceiling and hanging lights. They offer croissants, muffins, cookies, fresh smoothies, and Illy coffee among other things.

    Situated between 29th and 30th Street, Pabedan is home to Rangoon’s largest Indian population, a legacy of its British colonial past. This influence meant dishes like biryani have been incorporated into the Myanmar diet, and Nilar Biriyani is the best place to try it. The menu at this simple restaurant is not extensive, just a few curries and ice cream, but what more do you need?!

    Located on 49th Street, this is a relaxed and authentic local joint; a great place to hang out on street-side tables under the greenery next to an ornamental pond. This is also the best place to sample Myanmar’s most popular dish, Mohinga.
