Lahpet is a new and refreshing addition to London’s Asian food ensemble. We draw upon the very best of Burmese cuisine and are bringing to the fore a variety of exciting dishes, laden with flavour and texture, that have yet to embrace the inquisitive palates of London’s culturally diverse population.

Our goal is to make Burmese cuisine popular and accessible. Come and experience the unique flavours of Burma (Myanmar) in our stripped-back yet verdant and lively restaurant in London Fields.

                                      Enjoyed the meal - would return - but not exceptional.

                                      Great tasting food, especially the non-spicy dishes. Some of the portions were very small though, which was a bit disappointing.

                                      Definitely worth checking out for the rarity of a Burmese restaurant in London. Tasty food; a little more punch to the flavours would add the wow factor. Service was just as relaxed as in Burma, at least! Not sure I'd have the Mohinga again (or would add more dried chillies and order the dried shrimp side as well), but will come back to try the Kauk Swe, and the Lahpet was pretty good.

                                      I can't fault the food, I enjoyed everything and we sampled a good selection of dishes on the menu. Sadly, although staff were helpful with the menu selection, the overall service was not so strong, particularly as we booked and we arrived to find that we didn't one! My other disappointment was the style that has been adopted in the restaurant. For me it looked like many other London restaurants and I felt I would have liked something a bit more authentic...

                                      A gem of a restaurant! Exceptional flavours from a place less known to the restaurant scene in London. Continue with the amazing work you are doing. A must visit for people who savour south and southeast Asian food.
