Interesting, tasty cuisine; comfortable atmosphere

As out-of-towners, we welcomed the chance to try Burmese cuisine with the guidance of our friends who live in this neighborhood. We ordered a number of dishes and shared them. We especially liked PaZun MoteNyinChin Gyaw, shrimp sauteed with sour mustard, onion, and fresh cilantro (the menus have... read more

We especially liked PaZun MoteNyinChin Gyaw, shrimp sauteed with sour mustard, onion, and fresh cilantro (the menus have the original names and English). Service was good. Take-out is available.

The restaurant is a casual family restaurant that could use some décor updating. While good food is important, part of a dining experience is the environment and ambience - décor and look. It is a bit worn. The restaurant was visited for dinner and was not very busy though there were a number of families with little kids. The hostess... More

Mandalay offers unusual, devilish dishes at a very reasonable price. Decorations could use an upgrade. Not the coziest place.

We went here for lunch last week and really enjoyed it. The samosas were crisp and juicy and were served with a spicy red sauce. I got the iced Myanmar coffee that definitely has a kick to it (but I had none of the afternoon doldrums so that is a plus), and the KyetThar Ohnno Him. The dish was dark... More

Used to really enjoy the restaurant when it was in College Park. Since the move, the place is still great but the prices have gone up a bit. Regardless, food is wonderful and the staff are so friendly and always have time to banter with the diners. If you like spicy food, you're in Silver Spring, and want to try... More

11 of us (including one 15 month old child) went to Mandalay for dinner on New Year's Eve. We had a 6:00pm reservation, and when we arrived a perfect round table was set up and waiting for us, including a high chair. The round table made it a lot easier for our four families to talk during dinner. First, we... More

This favorite Silver Spring restaurant is run by a Burmese family. The variety of spices and combinations of dishes keeps me going back to sample different items. I have never been disappointed by the food. I would rate it affordable,also. The staff is quick and courteous.

I joined a group of business colleagues for a very enjoyable meal here following a big event we were all involved in. Our dishes were varied and very tasty. The staff was great and the setting warm and comfortable.

The food here was good -- a mix between Thai and Indian. Good veggie options in addition to the meat and fish selections. Bar doesn't have a lot of brand-name items, if you're looking for that.

My wife and I had dinner at this restaurant this past weekend. The food was some of the best ethnic food my wife and I ever have. We live close by and will start regularly coming here. The waitress who served us was outstanding and recommended to us dishes she thought we would like and she was right. The price... More
