    Food was excellent. Quantities were more than enough for three to share. The menu covered three cuisines. Overall a great dining experience.

    First time trying this new restaurant at Bayview Village mall and it was an excellent experience. Servers: were friendly, organized and gave you time to settle in before they approached to take your drinks and/or menu selections. Our particular server gave me an excellent recommendation when I was stuck between two dishes. He even checked in later to see how I liked my choice, which was so delicious. 10/10 Food & Drinks: okay…there are literally few words I could use to describe how great the food was. We started off with a beer (for my husband) and a Popa Surprise for me (they don’t skimp on the hard liquor part for my mixed drink). We ordered the lamb leg bao (comes with 2 bao), not a fan of lamb normally but the description was too interesting to pass up. They marinate the meat for 48 hours and you can tell because of how soft the meat was in the bao. For our mains we got the shrimp kebat and the mansmar beef curry (that comes with coconut jasmine rice). Dear god the beef was so soft it pulled apart easily with your fork (no knife needed). It was in a flavourful curry, that when added to the rice it was pure bliss. For dessert we had the dark chocolate stuffed samosas with ice cream, which truly completed the meal so nicely. 11/10. First time having Burmese food and would do it again in a blink of an eye. Highly recommend you check this lovely addition to Bayview Village’s casual dining scene.

    (2nd time going to Popa).7:30 pm reservation. Was told right away that restaurant closes at 9. We were not asked for proof of vaccination. Our server had his mask under his nose. Had our salad before our drinks. ( Salad was very spicy compare to 1st time but still tasty). Delicious Bao buns. But couldn't handle the spicy entree this time. Won't be a 3rd time

    The menu was pared down, as all restaurant menus are to survive current capacity restrictions and COVID 4th wave. We shared the pickled ginger salad, steamed lamb leg bao, fish curry and chai tea cheesecake. All dishes were freshly prepared and very flavourful, and service was pleasant and welcoming. We look forward to returning after the Ontario government issues vaccine certificates and limits dining to vaccinated people and we look forward to enjoying more items from an expanded menu.

    As a vegetarian I loved all the options for me, but was a little disappointed to see the tofu prepared the same way for all the dishes. It was really good, just a little repetitive if ordering multiple dishes.

    Except for the mohinga , everything else we ordered felt like they were simply reheated as opposed to prepared fresh. especialy the platha. Service wasn't as warm as you'd typically expect from a restaurant in Canada.

    It was a early bday dinner for my partner who I had mentioned (in a note when reserving our seat) if he could be surprised with a cupcake and candle. Not only did we wait (for the cupcake with a candle) as we were headed out after eating our meal, the server told him they still needed to bring that, hence ruining that surprise. The menu was also short and out of certain items which was disappointing. And we had to wait 25 mins before being seated though we arrived 5 mins before our scheduled time.

    An absolutely wonderful dinner. We went on a Sunday evening, and they have set up a patio area considering covid restrictions. The service was wonderful, and the food was even better. Our server was extremely attentive and warm, and gave us great recommendations including the mango pickled lamb, Rangoon chicken curry, tea leaf salad and steak kebat. Every dish was incredible, we loved everything we tried. Big portion sizes and reasonable prices. We will definitely be returning!

    Same owner as Goa Indian Farm Kitchen, some menu items are similar but definitely not the same. Everything was delicious - flavourful with a good level of spiciness. Reasonable portions - we did not walk away hungry! Staff was attentive and not over-bearing. Great suggestions provided. Appreciated their adherence and execution of COVID protocols. Will definitely come again and have already recommended to others.

    Understood this is not authentic Burmese food. But some of it was passable. The service staff was not thinking... Made some mistakes. Hostess was nice but tried to charge us a ridiculous fee for cutting a cake we brought over. Never paid a fee like this anywhere, and I have lived here for 40 years.

    Very attentive and thoughtful wait staff. The food, flavours and presentation are incredible!! The Portuguese egg tarts (with surprise tapioca) were so memorable, but every dish was very delicious and decently-portioned. Creative drinks menu too - was only able to try the "mocktails" but I'd love to try the 'cocktails' next time. Lovely, modern decor and ambiance. The cuisine is unique and innovative among Asian restaurants - but even my staunchly Chinese Dad, (who usually doesn't usually venture outside of 'traditional' Chinese restaurants) seemed comfortable with the food. Thank you!!
