Ok, this was the ONLY Burmese food I've ever had, so my frame of reference is limited. But I would keep coming back here over and over if I didn't live 3500 miles away. I basically let my server choose my food for me. I had the Lethoke Sone as a starter. A touch greasy, but delish. Get it. Also... More

I've been getting take-out from here for a few years (while my wife I babysit for our grandson), but never ate in the restaurant. We were glad we came, because the menu was much larger and the food, as usual, was unusual, with spices that had us wondering how they could make their sometimes plain ingredients taste so special. Sour... More

Ever since my office relocated to Silver Spring, Mandalay has been the go to place for birthday celebrations or just plain lunchtime stomach grumbling. Although influences from China, India and Thailand are apparent, Burmese cuisine has its own unique identity, and it surprises me that it has not caught on as well as other South East Asian offerings. The menu... More

Several people had (unsolicited) mentioned that this was a good place, and I'm glad I finally tried it.I'd never had Burmese food before and was eager to try it. The atmosphere is not fancy but was warm and homey - even though we went in the middle of the week the dining room was full and there were at least... More

I love this place!! The food is excellent and the service is awesome. This feels like a little mom and pop store from another era. This is my favorite place to eat at in Silver Spring. The noodle dishes served at room temperature sound kind of scary but they are now my favorite.

We set out to celebrate a friend's birthday in a happy mood, arriving at the restaurant a bit before it opened at 5:00 last Saturday. After hanging around the front door for a while reading the lengthy, aggressive message posted on the front door warning solicitors and salespeople not to dare bother them, we were allowed to come in by...

This is one of my favorite neighborhood restaurants. The food is great and the service is wonderfully friendly. We especially love the salads, which don't involve any lettuce but lots of cabbage and finely chopped peanuts on top. The ginger salad is amazing, and the fermented tealeaf is good and a little funky. The noodle dishes are good, but so... More

This restaurant serves Burmese dishes. The KyetThar ThaYetThee Hin (CH12 on the menu) which is chicken chunks (dark meat) simmered with pickled mango curry is my favorite dish. For dessert I usually get the sticky Rice with brown sugar & coconut. Great restaurant!

If you're in the mood for something light, this lovely neighborhood restaurant has the best salads! I know it sounds strange, but the ginger salad, which has shaved slices of ginger in it, is surprisingly mild and crunchy. If you pair it with a tofu dish with curry, you have a wonderful lunch or dinner for two. We were here... More

We have been fans since they were located in College Park. We were worries that the good would change when they moved to Silver Spring. Instead, it's gotten better!!! Love the mango and papaya salads, we get them every time. N06 is a staple with my boys but I prefer to try something different every time. The specials on Sunday... More
