“Best reason to try Burmese cuisine!”
Reviewed January 5, 2008

My husband and I have been to this place a few times already (thanks to my friend Fides) and loved each one. It gets very crowded so we usually go during lunch time. We always order rainbow salad - excellent - tastes a bit sweet and a bit sour and garlicky; however, people who don't like any sour taste in their food should avoid this (it was my mom's complaint). To me, though, it's SOOO good you won't leave any on your plate. Chef's special ribs were very tasty also, however, a little messy to eat. I can't recall everything I've ordered before as it's been quite a while but I do know it was all very good. Serving portion is quite small, so you'll have to order more if there are more than a couple people in your party and/or if you have a big appetite. Seating is a little tight but not really a problem. Don't be discouraged by the exterior; it's well decorated inside.

I heard Burma Superstar is owned by a Filipino and Burmese couple who thought of combining both cuisines, and the result is a wonderful place to go for Asian food that's not greasy. Actually, it's this place that made me try other Burmese eateries, although none comes close. It must be the fusion thing. You should definitely try it if you haven't already.

Great food but long wait for table. Best is to put down name and phone number (they will call you when your table is ready) and hang out across the street at the coffee shop. Must try the tea leaf or rainbow salads. Platha, superstar noodles and sesame beef are hits.

This place is ALWAYS pack!! No idea why... The wait is on average 45 min to an hour. The food is good, but nothing special, and it's rather pricy. You can definitely find a better Southeast Asian cruisine in town for a better price and less crowded.

The food is so-so, and quite expensive for Burmese. I prefer the Burmese place in the Int'l Food Court. By the Bite. That place is awesome!
