“Burmese Food is better than Thai!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2013

Given the price, the variety of unusual and quality taste experiences available at this Burmese restaurant should make it a 'must try' night out.

The decor is simple and plain, unlike the Rangoon in Palo Alto ( which oversells the table clothes, dishes, cutlery etc and charges accordingly). It puts its effort into the taste.

The Burmese Goat was sold out on the night. However the Green and Red Curries, and Tea Leaf Salad was excellent. We also ordered two of the home made desserts. Normally I skip dessert, but Im glad I did not. The sweet flavours balanced the spice of the mains perfectly.

The price was very affordable. I give it 5 because the quality of the taste, punches above its price point.

“Excellent Food, Helpful Service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2013

Everything was excellent. Tea leaf salad - very flavorful. Waiter and owner - very sweet and helpful. Accommodated special diet needs. Made great suggestions. Did not try to oversell quantity.
