We went to the seafront one. Good food, nice place, but the staff, mostly kids, bring you your dishes and then whispers comments to each other about you, which gets quickly annoying.

d This is a relatively expensive restaurant for the area, but my meals here all were well prepared and presented. The clientele tends toward expat/NGO types, locals having business meals and tourists.

There were few alternatives in this back water and we tried this restaurant. My seafood soup was a pleasant surprise. Fried squid was tender. Fried vegetables was ok. Staff good . Black out when were dinning. Better than expected. Well patronised by locals.

We dined here on our last night in Sittwe. The service was excellent, and the food delicious. I had chicken with cashew nuts and fried mixed veg. Yum! Cost a little more than average, but it was well worth it.

Excellent seafood dishes and it even has wine (though mostly red). Yes, compared to your average restaurant it is pricey. But everything's relative, and at least for tourists it's still a pretty good deal. The service is very average and it's a large space, more than the odd mosquito and doesn't have much ambience or charm. But well worth it... More

We went to this place for lunch. We ordered fried mixed vegetables, steamed fish and deep-fired prawns. Food was very tasty and portion was generous. Waiters were friendly and food price was a bit of pricy comparing to other locations. Toilet facility was very clean!

I had dinner from this hotel for all the days I stayed in Sittwe (3 nights each in August and September 2016). The food served at this hotel is awesome, with great taste and variety.

We ate dinner here because it was a block from our hotel and it was pouring--way too wet to find anywhere else to eat. Food definitely not gourmet. We did not get sick though, and it filled us up. They had an amazing collection of wine by the bottle though. We bought. French Bordeaux that was delicious and went a... More
