Burma Superstar has been featured on Food Network. After eating my meal, I'm not surprised. I showed up about 15 minutes before they opened on a Sunday night, and the line was already 20 people deep! I tried the following dishes: Samusa Soup - Delicous! If you've ever eaten Cincinnati chili, the flavor tasted very similar. I ate almost half... More

Unassuming, this place has incredible food. You are in for an explosion of flavors with every single dish. Start with the green tea leaf salad, it big enough to share. The house specialties are delicious try the lamb curry"wow".

The fragrance of the sauces, the quality of the food and the finesse of the use of chilis make this a remarkable find for Asian food aficionados. Not very expensive and definitely out of the way, I was raving about the food for several days. As their menu indicates, Burma sits at the intersection of great cuisines like Indian, Thai... More

Everytime I visit San Francisco I always make it a point to eat at BURMA SUPERSTAR. It helps that my friends don't live to far, so we usually just walk from their place near 6th and California. The restaurant itself is quaint and only has around 12 tables in total. If you go right when they open, chances are you... More

The food (simusa and fiery tofu) was excellent, and the tea was even better! The service was also very good. Not much more to say.

Stopped here for lunch while sightseeing in SF. First thing is to get there early. There was a pretty long line, but we managed to get a big table for our group. The food was excellent, portions were pretty big and the service was outstanding. We ordered several different appetizers and entrees and everything was gone when we were finished.... More

One of the most delicious meals I ever ate. I ordered a dish with ramen noodles, cooked green leaves, chopped nuts, tofu, and it was completely delicious. The ginger lemon iced tea was scrumptious. Service was fast and they were crowded. Loved, loved, loved this place. Reasonable prices too. Highly recommended.

A delicious find at the most reasonable prices found for high quality and incredible taste!! Must try the fun drinks Burma Cooler and herbal tea. Then kick things up with the Tea Leaf Salad and Platha and Dip. And, for the entrees try the Nan Pia Doc and Garlic Chili Shrimp! Enjoy!

Plan on waiting. They don't take reservations. They will text you when they're ready to seat you. We went across the street and down a bit to the Irish pub while we waited. The food is so worth the wait for seating! Service is good. We had the Vegetarian Samusa soup, eggplant and tofu curry and the Fiery Vegetables with... More

Large soup bowls and generous portions. The chili basil pork belly is delicious. Rose tea is lovely and good for sharing. Expect your clothes to smell like food.
