In 1906, Isaac Sofaer, the son of a family of provisions purveyors from Bagdad who came to Rangoon as a child, commissioned the renowned architect Thomas Swales to construct the Sofaer & Co building to be a centre of commerce at the most prestigious postcode in the region at the turn of the twentieth century – Lower Pansodan Road.
In 2016, a group of friends who met in Yangon stumbled upon a derelict unit at the far right of the once thriving emporium, which was being used as a warehouse for plastic packaging.
A dream was born: to revive a place that could be a space for the meeting of minds, to build a home away from home for people at cross-roads in a country at cross-roads.
The brainchild of Ingyin Zaw, Sofaer & Co. adopted the name of its namesake building. Here we celebrate life’s simple pleasures – coffee, cocktails and an open kitchen with the freshest local and regional ingredients.
Sofaer & Co’s space preserved most of the original features of the building – including the encaustic Victorian-era tiles from Manchester, steel beams from Lancashire and wood panels from possibly the era of the Vienna Café and Burma Book Club.
The clean, contemporary design pays homage to the history of the building, featuring our own designed, locally made furniture with the signature Burmese rattan weaving, locally commissioned artwork and reclaimed glassware from Nagar Glass Factory.

Gekko is located on the ground floor of the beautiful Sofaer & Co. building in downtown Rangoon. It was completed by Isaac and Meyer Sofaer in 1906. Both brothers were Baghdad-born, Rangoon-educated Jews. As well as owning many commercial properties in Rangoon, Isaac and Meyer were successful traders in their own right with interests in wines & spirits amongst others. Isaac was the architectural designer and Meyer made a success of the trading business by getting exclusives for luxury goods and supplying expats with imported groceries and spirits.
Gekko was Yangon’s first true open Japanese kitchen with a charcoal fired Yakitori/Robotayaki grill and cosy cocktail lounge. The menu is focused around charcoal fired Yakitori, with several vegetarian options available, as well as classic Japanese dishes like Katsu Curry, Ramen, and an extensive menu of sushi and sashimi.
