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

This was our first time for Burmese food. We were there in the early afternoon on a Sunday; the atmosphere was casual and relaxed. We had eggplant appetizers, which were very good. The drinks menu was entertaining, with clever names and descriptions for cocktails. My husband got an extra spicy beef entree, which was not nearly as spicy as he... More

This restaurant was on my list of places to try for a long time. Tea leaf salad is my fav Burmese dish. This one was not as good as the others I had in Myanmar, but it was tasty. It was missing some crispiness and bitterness. The beef basil and the mix noodles were also good. For desert I had... More

This is a non-pretentious casual atmosphere for affordable yet good Asian food -- mostly Burmese (Myanamar / Burma origin) yet a few other dishes, too. I've been here 2-3 times in total, yet not very recently.

I have come here for many, many years. Recently I was angered to discover that on top of what I paid for a small take out order I had been charged $1 extra for " take out" charge. The owner explained that this is a new charge and that it covers the cost of their cheap container for take out.... More

Oh, how I miss when I lived in Silver Spring and ate delicious Burmese food every week. Now I have to make do with once or twice yearly visits. I see some reviews saying that the quality has declined. That was not the experience I had last week when I visited twice. If you're new to Burmese food, ask for... More

Enjoyed the dishes we chose from an interesting menu. It's not fancy, but the food is delicious and convenient street parking.

So, so...it started very good but has declined over time. When it first opened this place was a fresh name for exotic food; over the years their quality has visibly declined. I will not visit again.

This is one of our favorite restaurants. We highly recommend it. As soon as you walk in the door, the smell is divine. It is family-run, delicious food and a wonderful time had by all.

I would recommend this place for the food, our good-natured waiter, tolerable noise level, and seating (tables not too close together). Someone needs to turn their eye to the decor - that would ramp up the experience. I wouldn't order from the bar. The drinks (I had the cosmopolitan) are definitely lacking.
