We stumbled upon this place wandering in China Town, in a side street with lots of eateries. It was full when we arrived but looked like worth waiting for a table, so we did. There is a charming interior, but we sat outside on the street. The menu is basic 'safe' food - French fries, chicken, pork, rice - at... More

My girlfriend and I visited 19th street, keen to sample the Yangon nightlife. Kosan has a really cool vibe, with very cheap drinks and a great selection of bar snacks. The beef kebabs and guacamole were both excellent. Lots of other travellers and locals in there; very sociable.

This place is more a bar where you get small snacks. Its a nice place to hang out and have a small dinner of snacks if you do not want to have a big meal. The price for the drinks and snacks quite affordable.

Mojitos are great and nice and cheap, other drinks are too. Food however was pretty mediocre especially given the tasty barbecue options elsewhere on 19th Street. Eat elsewhere then pop in here for a drink or two.

This place is happening at night. It is meant to be a drinking place, beers are cheap, although limited food menu but they have nice burger. And the whole street offers you all the bbq dish. You may check out 17th street too. There is nice fried dumpling and pork fillet bbq (satay) stall.

Menu was very small and with an odd selection of some Mexican dishes. Service poor and sat outside were constantly harassed by child beggers while eating which the staff did little about. The burger was ok but very small so still felt hungry. Totally overpriced too.

19th street is a nice place to hang out after sunset. And what makes Myanmar such a great place to visit is the friendlyness and openess of it's people. But there is always an exception to the rule: Kosan 19th St Snack & Bar. The food was okay the prices midrange but the service of the waiters (young stylish snotty... More

Terrible service. The waiter (a kid on his phone) was extremely disinterested to the point of being rude. Tried to charge us a "service charge". No food on the menu we wanted was available. Would not recommend.

There are definitely some mixed reviews and I think mainly because people are confusing different bars/Cafes with the same name in a similar location. We went to Kosan 19th St Snack Bar at the address listed on this restaurant (although the map spot is wrong and it is further along 19th St) It was very close to where we are... More

Went to the new Kosan roof bar at Bo Myat Htun Road (YAMA Hostel). Amazing 1000kyat draft beers and cocktails. I don't think it gets any cheaper in Yangon. Avocado and chips are nice too. Chips are fried on the spot, not the packaged types which are frequently served at other bars.
