Really friendly service, great food and the cocktails were not half bad either. I recommend their spin on a Margarita, and the Old Fashioned. For mains; Mohinga (fish noodle soup) and Ohn No Khauk Swe (chicken coconut noodle soup). You should also try the Lahpet (pickled tea leaves) as a side and the semolina cake for desert.

My colleagues were rather apprehensive when they realised the Christmas party dinner was going to be at a Burmese restaurant but we had a wonderful evening and everyone was excited for every dish brought to the table. A great experience and would highly recommend!

We really enjoyed the food, very authentic flavours having been to Burma and being part Burmese but more refined. Have already recommended and look forward to returning

my friend was disappointed that the hake dish had clearly been downsized since reviews. The starters were excellent - particularly the tea leaf salad. Such a complicated dish to balance esp when trying to source tea leaves in UK. Use of dried shrimp was lovely. Loved the fritters - who knew tofu could be so good and the ginger and bean ones were so good that I am going to try and steal them. It did take me back to lovely food in Burma but I missed the really big garlic and chili kick. How did I end up with such a dirty shirt - shan noodles obvs

We had a really lovely meal and the service was excellent. We were particularly appreciative of the care that was taken with the allergy requirements of one of the party. We're already planning our return!

Food is exciting, unusual and very tasty. Lahpet [tea leaf salad] - the signature dish - is a 'must try', in my opinion. Amazing flavour. Lovely, relaxed atmosphere. Service is friendly, albeit a little patchy at times. Overall a great dining experience. I will definitely be back.

Both our first time at Lahpet and eating Burmese food. And what an enjoyable experience it was! We did ask our waiter upon arriving about the menu and whether it was designed to share and, looking back, whilst friendly I'm surprised they didn't make alternative suggestions. They said they would provide bowls and plates for us to share. We wanted to try the signature Lahpet (tea leaf) salad and got one for the table to share pre-dinner. We were advised that we should probably get two due to portion size, I'm glad that we didn't as the salad is a great portion size and we weren't sure if we were going to enjoy a tea leaf salad so wanted to play it safe. And trust me we did enjoy it! But we didn't need 2 with how much more food we had coming - on the table of 6 we ordered 3 portions of coconut chicken noodles, one pork green curry, one prawn and one hake. I'm surprised the waiter didn't suggest reducing the amount of food - especially when three of the dishes were the same (we were just super keen to try this) - it was a lot of food! But the food was sublime - so many flavours, it was fresh, tasty and filling. The rosti with the hake was too salty and the fish was not perfectly cooked but the coconut chicken noodles stole the show - perfect food for a cold night in London. I would definitely return and happy to encourage others to try Burmese food as it's truly amazing!

Food was really out of this world. Can’t wait to come back. Service was a little slow but noting appalling - could have just been stretched thin on a Saturday night.

Waitress was brilliant. Tea was too bitter But everything else was very tasty. Just portions were on the smaller side and pricey.

Excellent service with very knowledgable staff who were friendly, professional and courteous. Food and drink was delicious. We were a table of six and everyone loved their food. Value was very good although some of the sauces/condiments could have been more reasonably priced.
