“A revelation!” this “unpretentious” yet “awesome” outfit offers “a wonderful introduction to Burmese cuisine”“intense, fragrant and refreshing”, but “not as fierce as Thai” – at its new venue in Covent Garden’s The Yards development. Founders Dan Anton and chef Zaw Mahesh started out in a Hackney warehouse, and still have a restaurant in Shoreditch. It’s named after the “unique and superb tea leaf salad” on its menu.

“Top Burmese cuisine, with nice modernising touches” has won a fanclub for this small but growing brand, which as well as operating a ‘street food kitchen’ at nearby Spitalfields Market has this year-old, permanent, white-walled, communal-table canteen. Top Menu Tip – salads, in particular the tea leaf one.
