“Wine tasting in Myanmar.”

Ranked #11 of 35 Restaurants in Taunggyi
Cuisines: European, Chinese, Indian, Thai
Restaurant details
Reviewed 7 May 2017

We tasted wine in the delightful Sunset WineGarden Restaurant in Aythaya sampling wines produced on the property. An enterprise to be greatly encouraged.
Wine was very enjoyable [a small sampling fee is charged] and we took an excellent bottle of Rose to Inle with us. Wish I had taken more - good value @ 11,000 kyat.
Delightful setting and excellent staff.

“Less is More” is a quote from seminal Modernist architect Ludwig Mies van der Rohe which he used in describing a principle of modern architecture.
That “less is more” principle can also be a valuable guide in other disciplines besides architecture. One thing I’ve noticed in my travels to foreign lands is that eateries tend to offer extended choices on their menus: say other 50 to 100 food options. Implicit in those huge menu selections is that the restaurant has a incredibly versatile cook that can skillfully prepare 100 different meals that originated in 10 nor so different counties equally well.
Wishful thinking. It would be wiser to focus the chef’s talent on a couple dozen dishes tops that he can excel at.
Case in point is the elegant restaurant outside of Taunggyi, Myanmar, “Sunset WineGarden Restaurant. The establishment is a class act; service is first rate, table settings and china are très elegant but the menu is loaded down with too many options. I ordered the schnitzel. Schnitzel is dish that originated in Austria of meat (veal, mutton, turkey, beef , chicken) pounded down to a thin patty coated with bread crumbs and egg mixture and deep fried. The meat seasoning is crucial. As is the thickness of the meat patty to the breaded coating.
What I was served at Sunset WineGarden was only vaguely schnitzel. The breading was twice as thick as the meat and the meat could politely be referred to as featureless.
Sunset does have phenomenal sunsets overlooking the Shan Hills and a professional staff, though if they pared down their menu by half, focusing on the chef’s fortes, the food would live up to its classy environs.

I went with 10 of my staff members for a sunset dinner. Beautiful surrounding, sunset, but the food is acceptable. We wanted to sit at the lake but was told that the pavilion may not be able to carry our weight. They do not have round table, but we settled on a long table enough to sit all of us.

They have excellent greenery all around with the best place to have a leisurely lunch or dinner is at the center of the pool with excellent choice of local wines produced right there and very warm and cordial staff

Aythaya wine garden is a must go place when you are visiting Inle Lake. It's located 22 km away from Nyaung Shwe. Their wine & food are very affordable & the best time to visit is late afternoon.
