Interior of Khaing Khaing Kyaw.

The first award of the evening was presented to Khaing Khaing Kyaw. They received a high number of public nominations, and the independent judging panel were impressed with the exceptional quality and huge selection of their traditional Myanmar cuisines. Judges were particularly impressed with the service and impeccable hygiene and cleanliness of the restaurant visited.

Khaing Khaing Kyaw has several restaurants across Yangon, each one serving up exceptional and traditional Myanmar cuisine. Judges were particularly impressed with the huge selection of Myanmar food available, with something to suit everyone’s tastes. The other notable point that was a great decider in awarding Khaing Khaing Kyaw the Myanmar food Restaurant of the year award was their impeccable hygiene and cleanliness. This is an area clearly very important to the team behind the restaurants and is certainly a driver of their massive popularity and success. All the restaurants visited were busy, but the service was at all times efficient and courteous. The young and friendly staff are patient and were more than happy to take the time to explain the process of ordering Myanmar food to customers who were not so confident in what they were doing.

The restaurant is well laid out with different sections to visit depending on your culinary desires and an extensive range of Myanmar foods is available, from mohinga to curries and Shan khauk swe. All are of great quality and extremely well priced.

The Myanmar members of the Myanmore Dining and nightlife Award judges panel were unanimous in their decision to award Myanmar food Restaurant of the Year to Khaing Khaing Kyaw. The restaurant provides a consistently high quality, hygienic and clean offering and is a worthy winner of this award.

Congratulations to Khaing Khaing Kyaw on Myanmar food Restaurant of the Year 2018. Myanmore wishes every success in the coming year.

Runner Up


Feel is the first traditional Myanmar restaurant that many newcomers to Yangon head to experience Myanmar food for the first time. The quality of food and service are consistently high and the restaurant is always busy, with a friendly and at time loud atmosphere. The ‘night market’ offering in the evening is a great opportunity to experiment and learn more about the different Myanmar foods on offer.
