Delicious Burmese - Perfect for Lunch!

I had to grab lunch in Burlingame and went with the previous recommendations. Yum! Glad I did! They have about 10 items and 4 salads that can be mixed and matched for lunch. I had the Tea Leaf Salad and Rangoon Beef. Both were great! It came with a delicious Hot and Sour Soup and rice. Perfect... read more

Went for quick dinner with the family. We love Burmese food and have eaten here before and didn't find it to be the best, so thought we would try again. Lunch special is the way to go, if you want to know. Entree plus salad plus rice. Nice. We had rice with beans and string beans and paratha and noodles,... More

Good service-Staff speaks English well. His recommendation on house special noodle was good. Decent and lively atmosphere-most of table were taken until the closing time. Clean interior not overwhelming. Only one bathroom for both man and woman. No space for a line for bathroom. Good food with reasonable price in the neighborhood.-My husband I ordered Burmese pancake, shrimp wanton soup... More

I picked this up to take home - you can get it with chicken or tofu - I ordered chicken - it was delicious! Spices were wonderful and it was a nice serving size!

My girlfriend has been wanting to try Burmese food for a long time. Finally had a day to drive to Burlingame to experience it. Location is in Downtown Burlingame, so you will have to hunt for parking. It's well worth it!! The restaurant itself is small and narrow. If there's a wait for a table, you have to sign in... More

This is a tiny place, so you will have a little wait, but it's worth it. We had the Ragoon Beef and House Special Noodles. Both were excellent. Great service. Vegetarian and Vegan friendly.

Excellent mix of Asian foods served by very friendly staff in a quick - or if you want to - laidback style. Another place in the seemingly endless list of eateries in Burlington that gets good reviews in print and they turn out to be spot on when you finally get there. Don't miss this for superb, not expensive food.

Fresh clean food. Fusion of all Asian foods and some very authentic Burmese dishes. Service very friendly and staff always nice. Usually a 'wait' to get in.

If you are having lunch, get there early as the place is normally full by noon. Lots of excellent choices, great spices and food combinations and not "greasy" like most Asian restaurants.
