We read about this in a guide book and as it was right next to our hotel and the Ananda Temple decided to give it a try and were not disappointed. We went in the evening and it was very quiet, during the lunch time period however it was full. We rather liked the fact that there was a tap... More

Food here was tasty, Bagan curry was excellent and the staff very friendly. Can seem out of the way but definitely worth a visit if staying nearby.

Nothing very special, but a good option to have dinner, mainly if you are close to New Bagan. We had difficult to find good food in Myanmar, so this option is a good one.

After a long, dusty day of temple-spotting in Bagan, Starbeam Bistro was so nice, we went there twice!

We really enjoyed the food in this restaurant. We had the fried fish that was very well done with a lot of fresh vegatables and the specialty if the chef chicken curry. We ate everything. Nice and tranquile setting

We ordered the fried Spring rolls and butter river fish. Both were well cooked and tasty. The complimentary warm homemade baguette was crusty and so fresh! A real delight. Come for the food but not the atmosphere, many flies and stray dogs roam the restaurant!

The good is just OK. But I like the table outside to cool down after visiting the pagoda. Perhaps much quieter than the neighbouring restaurants.
