Looking for the best places to eat in Nyaung U, Bagan?

We spent a few days sampling the different cuisines and there is a stand-out winner! Drum roll please…

Wonderful Tasty restaurant

Okay, so it sounds like a cliche, but it DOES live up to its name!

Wonderful Tasty (pictured) offers traditional Burmese, Indian, Italian and Tiebetan dishes that are freshly made and absolutely delicious.

Best of all, it’s run by a beautiful old man who melts your heart! By day it’s a great place for a sweet Myanmar tea, by night it’s candlelit and romantic.

Don’t leave without trying the guacamole dip and focaccia (1,700 kyat) and the chicken tikka masala with unlimited naan s (3,000kyat)!

Oh, and beers cost 1,600 kyat for a 750ml bottle. Yup, that’s ridiculously cheap. If you happen to go here, please show the owner that he has been reviewed,  we think he’d be very pleased!

Wonderful Tasty is located on the main restaurant street in Nyaung U. (09-256413811).
