This is a great social enterprise. Not only do you get good food and a great view while enjoying a meal, but you're helping the elderly of the town at the same time.

This food was good--you have to try the tea leaf salad. Yummy!!

In the river side rood, with a nice balcony over the river. The menu is short but nice and tasty...to vegetarians could be hard to find something to eat...some of the staff speaks basic English. Popular place with young local people ,they like interact and language practicing.. The profits are to help old people. The place close early, around 9pm.

Decent place on the river. Lots of locals, so that's always a good sign. The tomato salad was the best one I've had here in Myanmar, so far. The banana shakes were really good and fresh. Cheap, easy and fast. Close to Breeze Guesthouse. Good for vegetarians

The place itself is nothing special, looking a bit rundown and shabby, but the cause is worth it all in my book. Part of their income goes to elderly people in need and still, the food is ridiculously cheap. A tea leave salad is 500 kyat! What makes this place even better is the balcony that runs around two sides of the building and offers fantastic river view. The location is definitely one of the best in town for a "Kipling-ish" sunset. Also try their milkshakes; not as milky or creamy as the name implies but nonetheless delicious and refreshing.

The food was average, but the outdoor seating is great. Nice view of the river. Pretty cheap. A certain percentage of the income goes towards a home for elderly people or something like that, so that is good way to spend your money :)
