THE STRAND RESTAURANT OF YANGON, MYANMAR
In December 2016, the restaurant re-emerged from a six-month renovation with a new executive chef and dining concept, as well as a new name: The Strand Restaurant.
Previously known as The Strand Grill, The Strand Restaurant’s architecturally beautiful main dining room, which seats 45, as well as it’s ten-seat private dining room and main kitchens, were upgraded, redesigned and restored as part of a larger project to usher this luxury heritage hotel in Yangon, elegantly into the 21st century.
