The food was delicious! I would definitely recommend trying it if you are in the area. We had the tea leaf salad which was my favorite.

The outside is very drab and uninviting, but once inside it is very nice. The waitstaff is very helpful and friendly, and the food is great. It is a great 'floor show' to watch the tea leaf salad' and special noodle dishes mixed at your table. Prices are reasonable, about $10 a dish, so go with others to share the... More

Been going there for several years and it's always the . Tea leaf salad, garlic noodles, can't go wrong here:-). IMHO it's the best Asian restaurant in Daly City.

Mengalabah! It has been a few year since I have been to Burma so it was fun and random to find this restaurant in Daly City. The food was good and the staff were very sweet, just like the folks I met in Myanmar.

We enjoyed our dinner at the Burma Café. The Burmese Empanada was crispy, the Oh Noh Kauswer has great favor, and the Kabocha Pork was very tender. They serve good size portions at very reasonable price. I would also recommend the Burmese Milk Tea, the tea/spices they used was quite different than the other Asian milk tea.

How delightful to find a Burmese restaurant tucked in this out-of-the-way shopping plaza :) Was here on a geocache maintenance outing in Pacifica with my partner, and this came up happily when he looked on Yelp to see where we might dine nearby. Pros: The vegetarian samusa soup was hearty and nicely spiced, and the roti was flaky and tender... More

Just returned from a trip to Myanmar & enjoyed all the varieties of food served. Decided to try Burma Cafe and was pleasantly surprised at it authenticity and very flavorful food. My wife and I shared a bowl of hot and spicy Mohinga soup, the national dish of Myanmar. It is actually a very mild fish and noodle soup, eaten... More

I live in Daly City and never heard of this excellent place before. It is hidden at the far end of a very indistinct strip mall in a residential neighborhood. When you enter the restaurant a great surprise greets you. A pretty and serene dining room, comfortable seating, and friendly staff. The quite extensive menu has so many delicious sounding... More

Great service always provided by the waitress. Quiet place for conversations, easy parking. Food is average. A male who answered the phone was weird. He did not say the name of the restaurant, he kept silent for seconds and said "HELLO". I thought I called the wrong number. When I asked him for the business hour, he said "what do... More

If you live in San Francisco and mention Burmese food everyone will say 'Burma Superstar.' While Burma Superstar is fantastic, you typically have to wait a long time to get a table. Burma Cafe is just as good but without the long lines and waiting. They have a wide selection of traditional Burmese dishes and the service is top notch.... More
