Bagan (Burmese: ပုဂံ; MLCTS: pu.gam, IPA: [bəɡàɴ]; formerly Pagan) is an ancient city located in the Mandalay Region of Myanmar. From the 9th to 13th centuries, the city was the capital of the Pagan Kingdom, the first kingdom that unified the regions that would later constitute modern Myanmar. During the kingdom's height between the 11th and 13th centuries, over 10,000 Buddhist temples, pagodas and monasteries were constructed in the Bagan plains alone, of which the remains of over 2,200 temples and pagodas still survive to the present day.

This small restaurant by the street, is the best restaurant for you to have lunch like a local. Do not expect a fancy restaurant, but a normal Burmese restaurant with good food and a friendly and great service! Thank you! From the couple from the country of Cristiano Ronaldo!

Cucin abirmana, nepalese, tibetana, cinese, italiana
The lamb we had was very tough. The chicken dish was more tender. But both dishes were quite hot, relying on cayenne for flavour rather than the subtlety of flavour that comes from well curried food. There is better food available at The Indian Hut at the other end of the street. It costs more, but it is really so much better.

We take pride in making our guests happy and satisfied. We are open every day from 9am to around 10pm. Thank you very much. Win Tun
We had the Myanmar Tempura Vegetables and the Angela Salad. Both were good, however, the glass of wine that I ordered was so small, that I sent it back as it was not worth paying for. I ordered a beer instead, but if you like wine, go to any other restaurant on the street that serves wine and you will get a bigger glass.

Delicious food, super friendly staff, and a very chill atmosphere made this our go-to spot in Bagan. Thu, the owner, was lovely to talk to, and their staff took very good care of us without being intrusive.
The avocado salad (Burmese guacamole, basically) was the best we'd had throughout the country, and their cocktail game was on point. Give the Gin Basil Smash a try if you need something refreshingly different.
Situated away from the main restaurant drag, it's the perfect place to wind down the day and enjoy some peace and quiet along with delicious food.

Bagan ZAY prides itself on its innovative cuisine, a blend of traditional Burmese recipes with a twist of western influence. Along with this fresh, healthy and tasty cuisine, our guests can enjoy a selection of succulent juices, trendy cocktails and imported wines. A great atmosphere, perfect to end a day of sightseeing in Bagan, escape the heat in the afternoon or enjoy an excellent dinner in good company ! Our products are fresh and locally sourced. No MSG used ! Great vegetarian and gluten free options.
Clean, pleasant place. However, we found the Seating appalling. You either had wooden seats on which you had to sit bolt upright and tables which you couldn’t put your legs under, or low tables that you had to sit cross legged at - nightmare. As for the food, a restricted menu, which I like since they can focus of doing the food well and it will be fresh. It was presented well, but for the price it wasn’t as good as I expected. The best part of the evening was the music - loved it.

Great family run restaurant with an extensive vegeterian menu. We choose the eggplant curry, fried corn in coconut cream, vegetable fried rice and fruit lassis. The owner sent a few extra treats out as well. Everything was delicious, good sized portion and reasonably priced.
The service was friendly and geniune. Great recommendations on menu selections.
The restaurant is cosy, clean and easy to find.
