No prices on English menu which isn't unusual in Myanmar. However the price for 2 vegetable soups was outrageous in comparison to other restaurants. Unfortunately we didn't notice the dog sick on the floor before we ordered! Shame as location is right on waterfront.

No-frills but cozy place that serves tea and delicious snacks and Myanmar sweets in a relaxed atmosphere. Only one of the staff speaks English, but all are friendly and welcoming.

There was no pizza, chicken or rice available. I ordered a simple chicken noodles and fries, took over one hour to arrive, and it was not busy! The noodles tasted like they had been cooked in shrimp paste...not nice, sent it back!

This restaurant was recommended to us by a Sittwe resident as "the best in town". I did not try all the others, so don't know if that is correct - but it certainly sets a good standard. Fresh, perfectly cooked seafood, sensible prices, icy beer and friendly, competent service.
