It's rare to find good Burmese (now known as Myanmar) food in Southern California. When I find one they don't stay long in the business, maybe people are not aware of the type of food. If you love Thai food, then you will enjoy Myanmar cuisine because they are similar, especially deserts are similar to Thai, Vietnamese, Malaysian or even... More

So if you've been to Monterey Park and driven down Garvey, you probably passed by the Myanmar restaurant on Garvey/Orange next to the infamous Club 21. This review isn't about that place, this is the review for the much better tasting Daw Yee Myanmar Cafe that is literally one block away. The food is delicious if you're into trying exotic... More

Staffs were friendly and food tasted ok. It's good if you like enjoy Myanmar food or pike to explore, may not be for everyone.

As soon as i got there, I realized it is a good place because the restaurant was full and people were waiting in line. Despite the line, we got in quickly and immediately... More

When my friend said that we should drive 1.5 hours to try this restaurant that served Myanmar food, I was skeptical, but boy was the effort worth it. The food was so imaginative, texturally interesting, flavourful, and easy to order from the menu too. As a group we tried about ten different dishes, from mango and mint iced teas, a... More
