Opening Alert: Amayar Kitchen, Maywood, NJ

Amayar Kitchen, a new Burmese restaurant, has opened in Maywood.

The owner Aung Myint along with several friends and his wife Lynn Thway are running the show. He is the main chef and used to work at a Hissho stand at the William Paterson University cafeteria. He has predominately been a home till now.

It’s been Aung’s dream to open a restaurant, spreading Burmese cuisine and culture, but like most things in life timing is everything. He signed the lease right before COVID-19 hit the US hard and now he’s being helped by his wife, kids, and extended family. His brother in law also runs the Burmese Bites stand at the Queen’s Night Market!


The menu (see below) is mostly Burmese Noodles, with some Burmese curries, desserts, drinks, and appetizers – along with traditional Asian apps like spring rolls and samosas. There is plans to expand the menu after their soft opening phase.

With Burmese food being so rare in the US, ownership offers that the food is “indescribable until you try it for yourself, because it’s so unlike anything you’ve tried”.

It’s currently open Monday-Thursday from 11:00am till 9:00pm, Friday-Saturday from 10:00am till 9:00pm and closed on Sundays.
