Yangon food court a first for Myanmar

Myanmar has its first Japanese-style food court, thanks to a joint venture between City Mart Holdings and Japanese trading company Sojitz Corp.

Tokyo Dining City, home to six restaurants, opened on Wednesday inside a new commercial building in Yangon’s CBD. The Yangon food court can seat 200 diners and primarily targets office workers.

“Japanese food has gained great popularity in Myanmar and there are many Japanese restaurants here,” Zar Ni Kyaw, operations manager of Tokyo Dining City, said in an interview with local media.

“What makes us different from the others is that we aim to present genuine Japanese dining and Japan’s culture of hospitality to our customers in Myanmar.”

The two companies say they plan to open more such food courts elsewhere in Myanmar in the future.
