I have taken lots of people here and everyone I know has loved it. That goes from my 85 year old aunt to my teenage son. Somehow everything is more delicious here than the same dish anywhere else. Just go, you won't regret it!

I love this place because the food is so flavorful. Everything I've tried here has been good. I've taken friends and they love it. Only one person thought it was too spicy.

Burmese cuisine is unique and delicious. Very popular place. We got there at the lunch opening before crowds came in. Solid service in a small room. The house salad is amazing.

This place is typically packed so plan to arrive before 6:30 and get a table right away. Of course you have to order the tea salad, and they have a nice selection of drinks and beer on tap. Staff were very pleasant and did not rush us. They also sang a nice Happy B-day to my son!

This was my first time to Superstar. Everyone in the group loves this place. They ordered for the table and it was all good. The stand out dish was a crunchy salad to start that was sensational. Service was very, very good. I'm looking forward to the next visit.

Burma Superstar has a very high rating on both TripAdvisor and Zagat, and we found out why. The dishes were both interesting and of the best quality. My wife was hesitant because she doesn't like spicy food, but she found a dish (chicken stew) that she loved. I had an excellent, spicy lamb dish. They don't take reservations, so get... More

The review is on delivered food without having to wait interminably as this restaurant does not take reservations! Food is great. Prices are fine dining prices. Used to Asian food and also Burmese food, none of what we had seemed authentically Burmese, more Chinese perhaps. It may have been due to what we ordered, salmon, tofu eggplant and shrimp. We...

We've been to this location several times, and whatever time you have to wait for a table is worth it.

Been to their Clement St location and tried this to see how it is. The Zagat ratings don't lie. Food is awesome! We had the tea leaf salad, of course, chili garlic shrimp and red curry pork. The ginger honey tea is also good. Service too was excellent. No complaints! Definitely recommended.
