Reviews

Lahpet is a nice restaurant with friendly staff, well designed interiors and delicious food. We were happy with our visit. The only thing, which is a very personal review, is that the signature dish of the place, Lahpet Thohk, has a very very strong aromatic smell and it may not be for all tastes. It's like blue cheese; you like it or hate it--this dish had a similar effect. So, I'd suggest warning people beforehand if that type of smell may not be for everyone. Maybe it was my ignorance as it was my first Burmese cuisine experience in my life. Other food that we had were delicious and the drinks are well crafted, too.

The food at Laphet was incredible. Well curated and thought out dishes that were unique and delicious.

The staff at Laphet went above and beyond to make us feel welcome and comfortable. We didn't have to ask any questions about the menu as they offered it up front.

Would recommend to a friend any day.

Beautiful setting, friendly waiters and great food with unique flavours. We had the Lahpet salad, fried bream, pork and mustard green curry, stuffed aubergine and tapioca dessert. The restaurant was also very clean.

Lahpet is perfect for those who are curious for new flavours and exciting dishes! We picked Lahpet on first table because we have never tried Burmese cuisine before. The most exciting dishes of the night was the Hake Masala, such a interesting blend of flavours. Would love to revisit and try more dishes.

Food was great, real interesting fresh flavours, the kind of place where you want to go back and try everything else. I had the paratha for starters and shared pork mustard green curry (a generous portion of pork) and the masala hake. The only think I think could be improved was the hake but I am a bit of a fish snob and usually have sea bass/sea bream which is probably naturally softer, the masala sauce was delicious! The decor is really lovely too and got busy quite quickly.

Really liked the look and feel of the restaurant. Overall we enjoyed the meal but there are a few downsides. First the positives: the ginger salad was delicious! In fact I wish we had ordered more starters, the dumplings were nice too. The negatives: the hake was good, however the lemongrass rosti really overpowered the fish and was extremely salty, it seemed overcooked, I had to leave most of it. The seating was a bit odd, my partner was on the side bench and myself on the chair opposite, but the heights were different. I was almost looking down and felt too high for the table. Nevertheless I would recommend and try a few more dishes.

A fantastic meal at Lahpet. Service was on point with nothing to fault. The food was incredible, with flavours you know but in a completely different way. Highly recommended you check this place out!

Lahpet was simply amazing. From the minute we walked through the door until we finished our desserts and margaritas, the staff took great care of us and served delicious food full of unusual flavors. My favorite was the Hake Masala - a perfectly grilled fish on a bed of potato and lemongrass rosti, and surrounded by rich masala sauce. The bowls (coconut noodles and shan noodles) were enormous and we struggled to finish although I kept going back...just one more spoonful! Ordering a variety of starters was also a great way to explore the Burmese flavors in bitesized deliciousness. I would definitely recommend and will go back myself - wouldn't mind paying full price but will try with First Table first!:) Excellent experience. Thank you!

Starting a Friday night with great food at a great price - means full stomachs ready for twice as many drinks.

We were so impressed with Lahpet.

Everything was absolutely delicious; we took the opportunity to try a lot of different dishes and were amazed at the number of different flavours showcased.

The Lahpet salad was a great recommendation. We also loved the fritters, and the pork curry was a highlight.

Will definitely visit again!
