My cousin and I made our way to Inner Richmond on the MUNI to Burma Superstar after running the Nike Women's Half Marathon. We were exhausted and hungry. So we were hoping that the wait wasn't too long. Luckily it was about 15 minutes before a table opened up after 1pm. We sat down and ordered 2 Thai Iced Teas. One with soy milk for her and one with regular half & half for me.
The waitress was really nice and she told us about the menu, specifically highlighting that both the tea leaf salad and the rainbow salad were featured on the Food Network. Of the two, we decided on the rainbow salad that has 22 ingredients: crispy fried shallots, tomatoes, potatoes, 4 types of noodles, tofu, carrots, cucumbers, shrimp, cabbage, tamarind, fish sauce, crispy fried garlic, won ton strips, cilantro, crushed yellow beans, green papaya, roasted chilies, onion oil and some secret ingredient I lost track of. The salad is brought to you with piles of ingredients and tossed table-side for your viewing pleasure. It was really good. Crunchy, sweet, salty, spicy, sour flavors blended in a wonderful mixture and made me really happy.
We also tried the chicken curry noodles which were fantastic too. They also mix that dish table-side. They even squeezed lemon into the dish which gave it a wonderful brightness. Burma SuperStar, you get 5 stars in my book. They take credit cards which is also a plus.

We took the advice of other reviewers and ordered the soup and tea leaf salad. Both were amazing. We split an entree and were glad we did as there was plenty of food. We had the mint chicken. Wasn't as spicy as we like but was good. Can definitely taste the mint. Hubby had the Burma cooler to drink and loved it. The place is busy- took 44 mins to get a table for two at 645p. The restaurant is small and cozy- you sit close to your neighbors. We are very glad we ate here.

Had to go out of the way to get here but it was worth it. Had the fiery vegetables with tofu which is good but not very 'fiery'. Also had the Burmese Style Curry w catfish and that was great so it made up for the other. It was great to see a tomato based curry so we could eat it. We then topped off the meal with mango sorbet (very well balanced) and an intriguing dish 'jack starfruit chocolate banana' which was a spring roll filled with starfruit, banana and chocolate and served with ice cream. Great end to the meal
