“A family favorite for Asian flavor”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2013

If you enjoy Thai and Chinese cooking, you will probably like the food of Burma, which has some aspects that resemble the cuisines of the surrounding countries, but some dishes are unique, and this little family-run restaurant is a great place to sample the tastes. The service can be a bit casual, but the food is excellent. Every dish is distinctive and well-prepared. Ask for advice if the menu is unfamiliar. The decor has some nice touches of Burmese culture but it is not fancy by any means. Worth seeking out in this quiet corner of a busy strip mall in the Countryside neighborhood off Route 7.

“Ok but nothing special”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2013

We dined at A Taste of Burma earlier this week and were not impressed.
Even though the restaurant was not busy, the staff seemed disorganized.
The food was ok, but we have had better Burmese food elsewhere in more attractive surroundings.

“Amazing, an absolute favorite.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2013

The food here is delicious. I recommend everything. We have been here countless times and taken family, friends and co-workers. The tried and true favorites are chili-chicken, and goat curry. They are to die for. A hidden gem, and great with kids.

“Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

This is my favorite restaurant in Sterling. Many people have not had Burmese food so they are skeptical, but do not hesitate to go to this restaurant. The food is excellent. Some of the foods that are our favorites are the curries (lamb and goat), the noodle dishes (Golden Mountain), the appetizers shrimp tempura, the split yellow pea fritters, and the dessert that Mamma makes (tapioca). It is a family owned and run business and they always try and make your dining experience special. Very good value!

“not worth an out of the way trip”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2013

My husband and I went here for valentine's day this year. maybe that was our first mistake. the appetizers we ordered i'd rate a 4 out of 5. our dinners were a 3 out of 5 (average). the service was BAD, 1 out of 5. our greeting from our server was "are you ready?". never asked if we wanted anything to drink outside of water. appetizers came out with our main meal. our water glass was empty for most of the meal, we had to ask for our check multiple times. the table next to us had been waiting for 10 minutes for someone to take their order. the restaurant wasn't even that packed, maybe 8 couples and there were 3 servers. i was a waitress for 3 years and could have easily handled 4-5 tables of just 2 people without an issue. the couple on the other side of us got fed up and left (this was not the same table that had been waiting for 10 minutes to have their order taken). i really wanted to like this place since i'd prefer to eat at a mom and pop restaurant to a chain restaurant. unfortunately, we won't be returning.
