Generally great food and service. Just a couple of niggles -prawn dumplings were very small compared to all the salads at a similar price. Also we were warned about the two-hour turnaround for the table but this still felt quite punitive, we didn't have time for dessert.

Really enjoyed the food - I had the prawn curry and my boyfriend had the mohinga bowl, plus for a starter we had the sharing platter of fritters. We thought we only wanted the pea ones, but actually both loved the tofu, so would recommend getting the sharing platter. Our waiting staff were very friendly, happy to give recommendations for places to go on for a drink nearby, which is always useful. We arrived slightly late, and they called to check we were coming, which was a nice touch rather than just giving our table away :)

Service front both front of house and main waiter was incredible - lighthearted, friendly, informative and could not help enough, moving a booking forward an hour at last minute and still making room for us despite being busy = first class. Food was more hit and miss than on a previous occasion but the quality and flavour remain very good.

Fantastic environment and great menu! Sono of the plates were a bit too salty and with to much onion. However good food overall.

Coconut noodles with chicken was amazing. Portion size could be bigger for the dumplings starter

Delicious food. Lovely decor. Nice cocktails. We were recommended more food than necessary. Plenty of vegetarian/pescetarian options

The menu is not extensive making choice easier. The food as always was delicious and the service efficient and friendly. I would recommend to anyone who has never had Burmese food to start with the Ginger Salad or the Tea Leaf Salad (the Lahpet signature dish) and have the Mohinga (a fish based stew with noodles) or the Kauk Swe (a chicken based stew with coconut and noodles) for a main course. They are of course a lot more than I have described and you will get a better idea from the description on the menu.These are basic Burmese street food dishes. You can always move on to the other dishes when you return.

Food was absolutely amazing. I've already been telling everyone I can about it. The tea leaf salad was beautiful. As was the Shan tofu. All really authentic, just like the food I had when I lived in Burma, which I've missed so much. I'll be coming back to try everything on the menu. It was a shame the staff weren't more friendly though. Their lack of warmth and unwillingness to make conversation reminded me I was in Shoreditch, not Yangon.

Excellent service, I'm not expert on Burmese food, but the dishes we got were tasty, the only dish which smelt a bit strong was the shrimp tea salad , would recommend other dishes

The food wasn’t as good as it normally is. I’ve always had the coconut noodle chicken and this time round it didn’t have the same kick or flavour it normally does. Hope it was a one off and next time it’ll be back to it’s better self.
