Burma Lane is part of the Apples + Pears Group of restaurants, along with Red Spice Road and Red Spice QV. Executive Chef John McLeay and Head Chef Daniele Gagno oversee the kitchen here, presenting a wealth of vibrant Burmese dishes. Despite having high ceilings, the two-level restaurant uses lighting to great effect to create a moody atmosphere. A beautiful selection of Burmese artworks and mirrored panels adorn the walls. Tables are laid with quality ceramic plates and flatware. The menu takes you on a journey through the interesting and eclectic flavours of Burma.
For a tasty little snack, you can’t go past the samosas. The pastry pillows are brimming with a mouth-watering combination of chicken, corn and potato, and are complemented by a wonderful turmeric yoghurt dipping sauce. Chicken cardamom curry with pumpkin is a hearty and flavoursome main for a cool day. The cardamom is used sparingly, so it doesn’t overwhelm the other flavours in the dish.
