Burmese Food:
Mostly Burmese food is available from small local restaurants or on the street. It is the cheapest option, but very oily.
Chinese Restaurants:
There are a few Chinese restaurants. Generally speaking, food is OK, but the price is rather expensive. West side of the town is the Chinese area. 15 min walk from the Sule Pagoda. The food on streets in this area is mainly Chinese.
Indian Restaurants:
Many Indian restaurants in town, especially on Anawrahta Rd. Mainly serving biriyani, Indian fried rice.
Many travelers have favorite restaurants, but all seem to me about the same. Biriyani + a piece of chicken
Western restaurants:
Every year new Western fast food restaurants are opening. Burgers, donut, fried chicken shops, pizza etc. But the quality is too poor.
