Try the salads! Try the Chili Lamb

Tea Leaf Salad or any of the others very tasty! Chili Lamb is outstanding too. Have been going there for several years. The place is very popular, expect to stand in line on the busy nights!

Everyone should try this delicious food from Burma. Everything is great especially their special tea salad. Explained and mixed right at your table. Small place with excellent staff.

Food is absolutely AMAZING. Price is a bit shocking. Tea leaf salad is the best thing on earth. Nuts, lettuce, tomato, fermented tea leaves, dried shrimp. Mango chicken is the second best thing on earth. Spicy, sweet, fresh, and voluminous. Only complaint: They charged me for a simple coke refill. Go out of your way to eat here. You won't... More

Burma Superstar in Alameda(and Berkeley) is one of the best restaurants in town! The food is fabulous, the service is fast and gracious. They move customers through well and without making them feel rushed and explain the food well for newcomers! I highly recommend this gem.

I have been here several times. My last visit the food was uninspired, but sometimes it is delicious especially the spicy stirfry tofu and the tea leaf salad. The price is about 1 1/2 times an average Asian neighborhood restaurant.

Unless you want to stand outside for 90 minutes waiting while others seem to magically get tables the second they arrive, do what everyone else is doing: 1. Call the restaurant 60-90 minutes before you want to eat. If they don't answer, hang up and keep calling back until they do. Then ask to be put on their waiting list.... More

My wife and I have both eaten at Burma Superstar in Alameda at least 20 times. In fact, we went there before it assumed its present name, and was under the tutelage of a wonderful owner/chef. Throughout this 12 year period, this restaurant has maintained very good standards for its food and pricing (very reasonable cost for fairly complex dishes).... More

Burma Superstar is the best of the best. I save it for special occassions. The pea leaves and the Sesame Beef should not be passed up and the tamarind cocktail rocks.

Our son and his family live in Alameda and have decided this is one of their favorite restaurants and a must-go-to place for visiting friends. We were not disappointed. Having never had Burmese food, we were not sure exactly what to expect, but the dishes they chose for us were fantastic, especially the Rainbow Salad and Green Tea Salad, both... More

I was consulting in Oakland, CA when my colleague suggested we dine at this Burmese inspired restaurant. Having had no idea what to expect, I thought, why not? Burma Superstar was an excellent choice! There were three of us, so we decided to share dishes, family style which I highly recommend for culinary variety and a treat for your taste... More
