“Excellent dining experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

I had the opportunity to have dinner at Rangoon's twice last week. The food was fresh and delicious. We had the shrimp avocado rolls and tomato bruschetta as starters, followed by the chicken salad (exquisite) and coconut prawns for our main courses. There is a nice selection of affordable wines. Great service. I highly recommend you give it a try.

“Definitely coming back!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2013

Brought along one of my friends who had recently travelled to Burma with me to try it out and was not disappointed AT ALL!! The owner was very friendly, and the meal was fabulous! We tried the tofu salad, Owno-Kauk-Swe soup and curry prawns. I only wish there were more traditional Burmese dishes! The tofu salad was delicious and the Owno-Kauk-Swe was a nice light creamy coconut texture. I loved that they served the condiments on the side, you could put in whatever your taste preferred in to the soup. The Tofu salad was a nice portion size and was seasoned perfectly. If you can eat spicy, let them know because the chef does an excellent job of seasoning the dishes so that the spice doesn't over-power the other flavours of the dish. They do also offer other more westernized dishes too, so if you're going with less-adventurous people they have the option of enjoying a more westernized meal with you at the same table. I've heard only good things about the carpaccio so definitely will come back to try other things on the menu.

Very good cuisine, fine and tasty. Owners are charming and cheering. You can have spicy meal or a steak. They cooked it as you like. Personnaly, I prefer their burma cuisine. I like exotic meal. It as been delicious.

“Really nice ethnic food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

Give this place a try! We dropped by after the movies last Saturday and really enjoyed it. The appies are great. The carpaccio is the best we've had in a l-o-n-g time. Came with a very nice spinach salad. The lamb sausage was a killer. Yum! Portions are huge. The soups and salads are a meal in themselves. We'll be back!

Thank you Grassgreener for your kind review of our restaurant. We particularly appreciate the fact that you mentioned our non Burmese menu items as being of high quality and taste. Please feel free to visit again and try some of our traditional Burmese salads and meal soups. Again, many thanks.
