This place isn't near any of the normal tourist stops... but it is worth the trek. There was a long wait, which was also worth it. The food was amazing, and there was plenty of it. Good relaxed atmosphere. Would definitely go again.

Call ahead and put your name down, then show up an hour later..... This really does help! The tea leaf salad is so unique and flavorful, the samosa soup is so hearty- a meal in itself! The garlic eggplant was so tender and steamed to perfection. I wouldn't order the egg noodle dish, heavy and too much like linguini. Coconut... More

Luckily, we have some really great friends that drove us around the city for 2 days taking us to all the sites, restaurants, etc. This is the last place they took us...Oh My God, I thought I had died and gone to heaven. I'm not kidding. First time for Burmese food and I'm in love. I can honestly say this... More

We popped in for lunch in this small restaurant. Parking is not easy, and I'm told there is usually a wait. For us, parking was not easy, but there were a few empty tables. The tea leaf salad uniquely combined various ingredients, including a fermented tea leaves. It was very good. My wife's dish was pretty good, but its the... More

Wasn't hard to get into - but we went at 5:30pm. Line was much longer by the time we left. The place isn't much to look at- either from the front or inside. Loud, tightly packed, no real decor to speak of. (And my buddy from San Fran says this was after renovation) But the food truly is amazing. I... More

We came at 450pm and sat on the bench and got a table straight away as you would expect. 45 mins later the restaurant was full. Tea leaf salad you have to get. Very fresh and tasty. The samosas were also great. We also ordered the calamari which was very tasty. The lamb curry was delicately spiced and tender. The... More

I thought tea leaf salad sounded quite odd, but it is the best green healthy thing I have ever eaten! My opportunities to visit the bay area are few, but I'll be going back to this place every time! Timing your arrival is probably key. We didn't have a wait in getting a table, but I couldn't believe the line... More

Came highly recommended by a friend and was absolutely worth the long wait. Food is yummy, authentic and flavourful. The plathas and curry were yummy. Interesting starters as well. The place is quite compact and fits in the maximum it can manage given the space. Don't get dithered by the queues outside it is a must try in Chinatown!

Waited on the bench outside for about 30 minutes before being shown into the very small dining room. Nothing too elaborate or fancy about this place - you enter through what looks like a shower curtain on a rail above the front door - but none of that matters when you taste the food. really fresh flavours which appear to...
