Just opposite the Sandoway Resort entrance (the Italian F&B manager at the Resort eats here!) is a well established (18 years) restaurant run by two generations of the same family Spotlessly clean. . Seafood is so fresh and excellent - we ate barracuda, snapper and tiger prawns on 4 separate occasions during our stay - fantastic! Good choice of local... More

Thoroughly enjoyed with a beautifully chilled bottle of red wine. Thank you so much for making our meals so enjoyable and we loved our little deserts that were given at the end. Can not... More

This restaurant is a definite must if you are in Ngapali area. It is a family run business and it looks like each family member has their own share of responsibility in running it. We have been greeted by a lovely young lady and served by a young men- both impeccably polite and hospitable. After our dinner, the table was... More

We ate in this restaurant 3 times during our recent stay on Ngapali Beach. The atmosphere was excellent, and the staff were very friendly in this family run restaurant. The locally sourced fresh fish was cooked to perfection.

This swiftly became our favourite restaurant on Ngapali beach. Not only is the food here *really* great but the family who run are absolutely charming. We ate so much good food here that it's kinda hard to select particular meals but I guess that the pork with tea leaf curry was the one that I liked best. This hotel is... More

Simply the best. Great well cooked food and excellent friendly service. Tried several restaurants but this was definitely the best because the food is always fresh and tasty. The best food we had in Myanmar.

We wanted to try somewhere different from the hotel and wish we'd done it sooner. As others have mentioned, a family run restaurant with the friendliest welcome, fantastic service and superb food. The barracuda with its range of dipping sauces was divine, my wife's prawn coconut curry also excellent. To end the meal, we were given (free of charge) pieces... More

If you are going to eat anywhere around Ngapali Beach, eat here. We read about this restaurant in Trip Advisor and since it was across the street from our hotel (Sandoway), we had to try it. It is a family run restaurant with Mama doing all of the amazing cooking. We loved the prawn curry and the tomato & green... More
