The restaurant has sleek, gilt-edged design--trendy rather than cosy. The menu is appealingly short and well-crafted, and the servers are happy to explain the different dishes. The food could use more seasoning, though.


I have to be honest, I don't really know what Burmese food is meant to taste like, but if it's anything like what was served at Lahpet, I am an absolute fan. We went to Lahpet over the weekend of their soft-launch, that entailed us to 50% off food. With the discount, it was great value for money. Hopwever, if I had to pay full-price, the pricing is a bit exhibition proportionate to the portion sizes. Saying that, if you are into trying new cuisines and not too fussed about the cost, I highly recommend trying out Lahpet. I mean, each table has a jar full of chilli flakes instead of salt and pepper shakers... that screams "my kind of place".
