Win Restaurant along the busy and bustling 19th Street in downtown Yangon is just one of many Myanmar barbecue shops lining the street... But locals (and foreigners) claim it's the best Myanmar barbecue here. Part of the reason is that Win Restaurant has a much larger premises than most other shops here, as the outlet spans both sides of the street. Another reason is the much larger selection of barbecue skewers they have available, made fresh daily.

Ambience at Win Restaurant is decent for a street stall. Furniture is functional, if a little cramped, and the place is relatively clean in terms of hygiene. You may choose from outdoor dining along the street, or indoor dining. Win Restaurant is quite well ventilated, so don't worry about smelling like barbecue.

Service at Win Restaurant is very good. Staff are friendly and while they can't speak much English, they do their best to converse. Win Restaurant allows you to bring in food and drink from other stalls in the area, and staff will even help you place orders with the other stalls on your behalf. They also welcome street snack vendors to showcase their snacks in front of the outlet. Food is prepared qickly upon order, and typically served within 10 - 15 minutes of ordering, even during peak periods.

Food at Win Restaurant is excellent. They have a much wider variety of barbecue skewers as compared to other stalls in the area. Ingredients are fresh. Their cooking is kept simple, just barbecue / grill, but done very well with skill. Win Restaurant has several dipping sauces to complement their barbecue skewers, as well as several main dishes available on the menu. Favourites include traditional Burmese salads like Mala Hin Salad.

Win Restaurant and the stretch of 19th Street in Yangon are perfectly safe for foreigners to visit, even if they're alone. I would highly recommend paying a visit here, as well as spending time soaking in the local culture and energy of the area.


Win Restaurant is located near one end of the bustling 19th Street in downtown Yangon. Lookout for the green signage. Their shop premises line both sides of the street.

Various vendors of street snacks wander the street outside, ask staff to help you order, or you could approach them yourself. Locals typically order these as appetizers. Popular items include Lahpet Thohk, a salad of pickled tea leaves, Braised Peanuts, and a odd looking Unidentified Myanmar Fruit, which has a taste and texture similar to hard cheese.

A speciality here, the Nga Acho Chin / Burmese Sweet And Sour BBQ Fish is beautifully cooked. Firm, meaty and fresh sea bass fish, doused in a sweet, sour and mildly spicy gravy... So addictive!
