Some of the Best Indian Food - Edit

Remarkable how such incredible food comes from such humble surroundings. Most dishes can be veganized, even substituting tofu for cheese.

Owner is very friendly & helpful.

Try potato paratha bread & Special Thali Set. Set is a lot of food for 5,000 kyat (about $3.67)

Ate dinner here, then came back next afternoon for lunch.

Pros: Vegan friendly, Inexpensive, Cool location in Little India

great place! - Edit

Even if it seems full, check out upstairs, more seating available.
The host was super nice, and spoke English very well. She let us know how to easily make anything vegan and had the option to make things not spicy.
Many options, and they will replace cottage cheese with tofu to make it vegan :)

Delish Hospitality - Edit

This place inspired my to write a review. Bottom line: go! We arrived close to closing time to find the restaurant's gate closed. The lady (not sure if she's the owner) was so kind to open the restaurant for me and my friend after I asked her for a recommendation for another place close by with vegan options. She said there wasn't any place open and that it would be hard to find vegan food. She only had one option to offer me because the cook had already left, but I did not care. I was starving and would eat anything vegan at that point. She was so kind!!! We had waters, a chapathi plate, masala chai tea (heavenly!) and complimentary donuts she was making for the Diwali festival tomorrow. She went above and beyond to help out a fellow veggie and I was so grateful. The food was very tasty and the cheapest food I've ever had anywhere in the world.

Yummi - Edit

Das Restaurant ist strikt vegetarisch und vegan.
Die Besitzerin ist supernett und erklärt jedes Gericht. Preise sind total okay, die Sachen sind sehr lecker.
Es lohnt sich das fleischfreie Konzept zu unterstützen.

a great find in downtown - Edit

The food here was great, and the staff lovely. A little more expensive than surrounding restaurants but well worth it for the peace of mind of a fully veg restaurant.

fantastic - Edit

Lovely owner, tasty food & cheap!

This is a rarer gem in Yangon. Found it quite hard to find vegan food when travelling Burma but this was excellent.

The owner was very lovely! We wish her luck in bringing veggie food to Yangon.

Tasty but can be expensive - Edit

I got inside and was shown a table to sit. Someone stayed with me and kept asking what I wanted to eat, suggesting the most expensive item on the menu, the Indian thali (5000 kyats). I accepted although there are other items on the other menu for 1200-1500 kyats. I was hoping for a feast for that price but I was disappointed: 2 chapati, rice, daal, alloo Gobi, paneer in tomato sauce (don't know the name) and vegetable curry. I wish I had ordered something else!
It was tasty but I would not order that again.
I went back the next day as this place is well rated and ordered the Thali set (2300 kyats) and I wasn't disappointed! Chapati, rice and 6 little plates/bowls with curries. It was perfect. And the lovely staff offered a refill when some plates were empty :)

Tasty :) - Edit

As other reviews have written, it's very tasty and friendly staff, It's also very easy for vegans as most dishes already are, and the owner knows what vegan means and can advise on what to get. Try their soy milk masala tea (chai) ! Definitely recommended

DELICIOUS food, super nice owner - Edit

This little two story restaurant in the center of downtown Yangon was just what we were looking for after walking the hot and humid streets of the city. I am vegan and thoroughly enjoyed the soy milk masala tea and the thali set. They kept refilling the dishes for free, and we got another round of the chapati for a little extra kyat. Every thing was vegan, which was assured over and over by the English speaking owner. She was so sweet and we could tell she was busy but she made it a point to talk to us and make us feel comfortable in her restaurant.

The thali set consisted of rice, 2 chapatis, veg curry, Dahl, Chana masala (chickpea curry) and a jackfruit (looks like pork) veg curry which was 2,300 kyat. We got this, the soy milk tea, a large water and extra chapati for a total of 4,000 kyat. GREAT DEAL!

The only complaint I have is that the dishes weren't hot. They were all cold or luke warm, but that didn't stop us from having seconds (or thirds).

Would definitely definitely would recommend this to any vegan, veg or Indian food loving foodie! Thank you for the delicious food!

Just Amazing - Edit

Dita was amazing. She helped us decide what to get and I have to say, it was one of the most satisfying meals I've ever had during my travels. Very cheap, but the quality of vegan food is just to die for. It's our last day in Yangon and we're going back today for lunch!

Pros: Taste, Friendliness, Hole-in-the-wall atmosphere

Cons: None

Best of Yangon - Edit

I ate many times at this small and simple restaurant. It was by far the best vegetarian restaurant I have been in Yangon.

There are some big ones, with larger menus, but that doesn't mean better.
The host is really charming, asking every time you choose a dish with dairy if you are vegan.

Pros: simple but very good food, nice owner, very cheap

Sehr leckere und authentische Küche. - Edit

Die Gerichte liegen zwischen 1000-2000 Kyat. Für den Tee gibt es sogar Sojamilch. Was uns allerdings enttäuscht hat war die undurchsichtige Preisgestaltung. Ich bestellte drei Stücke vom "Papda" Brot (das hauchdünne, knusprige Brot). Am Ende wollte sie hierfür 1500 Kyat. Absolut überteuert! Beim weiteren Nachfragen warum es so teuer ist wurde sie plötzlich sehr unfreundlich. Schade, wir werden nicht mehr hingehen

Pros: Gute Kenntnisse über veganes Essen. Sehr lecker un

Cons: Fragwürdige Preise

Very nice owner and delicious food! - Edit

This place is perfect for breakfast, lunch or dinner. The food is really good, can be spicy or no spicy (like really no spicy if you specify), and it's inexpensive (for a restaurant - it's not street food).
It's really vegan (and the owner knows what vegan means), except for some vegetarian dishes, so just ask for vegan if you don't want dairy products.
The place is quiet small (but wasn't crowed when we went), and there isn't a beautiful view - it's like a small normal restaurant in a burmese street, but it's vegan!

Pros: delicious, nice owner, good english spoken

The Tastiest Food in Yangon! - Edit

We returned to this friendly little place on 3 occoasions and each time we left feeling very full and satisfied, as well as highly impressed with the delicious food the lovely Geeta produces.

The prices are incredibly reasonable and you can enjoy a quality and fulfilling meal on a backpackers budget.

Even if you have friends that eat meat, the food here topped anything else that we ate in Yangon and we encourage people of all diet types to sample some of the delights on offer here.

Our particular favourite was the daal paratha with tamarind dip. Not to mention the masala tea with ginger, made with soya milk to suit a vegan diet! Everything we ordered was delightful!

This small place is not to be missed, so be sure to keep your eyes peeled when walking down lower 29th street as you could easily pass by without realising. There are signs outside so you shouldn't have too much trouble!

We will certainly be returning if we find ourselves back in Yangon!

Pros: Delicious food, Suits all budgets, A very welcoming host

excellent vegan food in the centre of Yangon - Edit

This is a great new, friendly vegan place a short walk from Sule Pagoda and the downtown area, slightly closer to the Merchant Road end of 29th Street.

Opening hours are from 07:30 to 20:00, every day.

I stumbled upon this spot quite by chance: there are two bright yellow banners outside with menus that invited me into a quiet and clean little seating area.

The owner, Geeta, is an English-speaking Burmese lady with Nepali origins who also lived in Bangkok for many years; she is really eager to make fresh, tasty, wonderful food. There is a fixed menu, but many of the curries change every day. If the restaurant is not busy, the owner will sometimes sit and chat and also offers free refills of dahls, curries and rice if you need.

I was really impressed that the owner was so committed to keeping her restaurant as completely vegan as possible, absolutely no eggs or butter, meat, cheese or fish in the food. The only two concessions here are milk in the ginger masala tea and yoghurt in the lassi (vegans please note!) The owner is also aware of vegetarian/vegan diet and keen to promote a healthy menu.

I have been there several times over three days, including breakfast. Each time, the food has been very tasty and prepared to order (the curries are obviously made earlier, but the rotis, dosas, puris etc are all light, hot and fresh). For the breakfast dosa (or dosai as it's called here) there are actually TWO dosai served, which is great value and helps set you up for the day

Regarding breakfast, I used to wander through the streets about 08:00, while the city was slowly getting busy, stop here to have some breakfast and hot tea, and then was ready to do some exploring and sightseeing.

There is no alcohol served here, but plenty of drink options - I think a fresh lime juice or something would be just right here, especially for people who don't like fizzy drinks. Again, vegans please note: there is yoghurt based lassi and milk based tea served here, but apart from this the entire food menu is entirely vegan - a really rare find in Yangon and Myanmar, especially for those of us who do not like fake meat style food.

I am so glad to have found such a lovely little place in Yangon, with excellent vegan food available throughout the day, it is thoroughly recommended and I will miss it when I leave Yangon.

Pros: fresh and tasty food, location downtown, friendly, inexpensive,
