There is a wait often at this restaurant but it's well worth it. They even brought free wine to us while we waited for a table. The food here is excellent. It's as good as food I had in Burma itself.

We were on a work trip and I was with a bunch of colleagues. We split up and Id never had Burmese before so thought why not. Well, it was certainly worth the wait. Its a smaller restaurant but the food was quickly brought out and they kept tables moving to seat patrons. It was a pleasant atmosphere and with... More

Very tasty Burmanese food which resembles a mix of South Asian food styles. If you like Asian, you should definitely go here. The place is tiny and yet so popular that you can expect to wait for a while if you go around 7PM for dinner.

The food is unique but have many similarities to Chinese and Thai. The service is fast and the wait staff is pretty attentive. The restaurant is small and is not uncommon to have a long wait during peak hours.

A colleague recommended this restaurant and it didn't disappoint. There were four of us and we got a table right away before they got busy. We shared two appetizers and each had an entree. The green papaya salad was excellent. One person in our group does not like spicy food much so be sure to ask when you order. The... More

Burlingame cuisine continues to surprise me! I visited this restaurant while staying near the airport. The food was great and this part of Burlingame is very nice. I had the Samusas for an appetizer, the Rainbow Chicken for the entree and the fried green beans. I could have shared the chicken with my co-worker. There was plenty of food! I... More

The place is small and very popular, so it is crowded and a bit rushed. However, food is excellent and the 3 of us thoroughly enjoyed everything we had. Would absolutely return.

Wonderful food, mix of exotic spices from Thai and Chinese cuisine creates a unique flavor. Place was packed when we went on a weeknight, shows the popularity. Service is pretty decent once you get seated. Not ideal for a romantic setting but perfect for awesome food.

After 3 attempts to eat here, I was finally able to enjoy its food. The flavours are wonderful, the sauce is well prepared. My only disappointment was the flavoured tea. It is too sweet. However, the tea leaf salad and basil fish was supreme
