3Bharat Indian Restaurant
This Lonely Planet-recommended restaurant has been around for quite some time. Don’t let its humble appearance put you off. Its chitti rice and curry are one of the best in town. It goes best with mutton. If you’re daring, try its mutton brain masala.

The northern Indian-style grilling is a welcome addition to Yangon’s dining scene. It serves both buffet and a-la-carte – we recommend the former. Indulge yourself in well-spiced meat and seafood grilled in the clay oven (tandoor).
