“Authentic Burmesee food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2013

For out in Loudoun, this is by far the best Burmese food. There has been some family issues that have affected the service of late, but not the quality of the food. This is a Burmese family run restaurant. Everything is prepared fresh with quality ingredients. We have been 6 times in the past year, have tried something new each time and have always enjoyed every meal. Usually there are a couple of good dishes and the rest ok. So far, out of 12 items in total, 6 for my wife and 6 for myself, each has been fantastic.

“Inconsistent”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013

Went at lunchtime. Restaurant not even half full and service was really slow. Appetizers were good. Favorite one is split yellow pea fritter. Mango salad was quite tasty. Main dish of Mandalay chicken was ok but not a repeat.

“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.
