Great Go To Neibhborhood Restaurant!

Always good food and interesting food. Staff are always pleasant and accommodating. Usually no wait or very brief wait for table. This is not a fancy restaurant but is a very relaxing, good neighborhood place to eat. We have enjoyed it for years. A good go to place when you want a good meal at... read more

Our family with 6 had the dinner at the Mandalay Restaurant & Cafe last night, and it was a big disappointment that I feel I need to write about our experiences on behalf of my family and share with everyone. There were 2 vegetarians and 4 non-vegetarians, we ordered 3 vegetarian dishes and 3 non veg. to share. The server... More

I've never eaten Burmese food before and I now know what I was missing. We're vegetarian and had a huge selection to choose from on the menu. The service was quick and friendly...like we were family...and everything was really, really good. We'll be back!

The food is flavorful and tasty. It is important to specify how spicy you want it to be, as some dishes can be quite hot. We have always had good service and have visited the restaurant many times as it is relatively close to us. Prices are reasonable.

Family owned and if the owner, founder is there, then the service is fabulous. sometimes the service is only mediocre. sometimes the wait staff is not well trained or informed.

Met some friends for lunch on July 4th at 11:30am and the service was great, because we were the only ones in the place for about an hour (and only one other group showed up before we left). Hadn’t been to Mandalay in years, but the food is just as good as I remember. We shared the samosas, vegetable soup... More

Needed a place to meet with friends; Silver Spring is conveniently located half way between our homes. I remembered enjoying a previous meal at Mandalay; we enjoy ethnic food so I recommended it as a meeting place. My friends were as pleased by my choice as I was. There is nothing more disappointing that recommending a place just to find... More

We went for dinner to this nice , no nonsense restaurant a few days earlier. The food was simple, tasty and flavourful. They had two unique dalads - one with fermented tea leaves and another with ginger . I would recommned these . Stay away from the Mocktails as they are nothing but coloured water . The dishes we had... More

The salads are overdressed but that is the only way you can get them. The ginger one is piquant. The tea left one was flat. We also shared three entrees. Chicken number 13 was good. Noodle number one was fine. And eggplant was ok. I would not return as there are other cuisines I refer, even nearby, such as Thai... More
