Loved the tea leaf salad - lots of fresh ingredients chopped up with fresh squeezed lemon juice & fermented tea leaves! Sounds odd, but a must have! Good cocktails & friendly efficient staff.

Great selection of recipes from south east Asia, served well. The food here is much better than anything I ate in week in Burma, or Myanmar, as it is now called.

I took my family of four there after Christmas and we enjoyed our meals very much. Portions were large, as several of us had enough left over to take home for another meal. Spices were nice. Their curry was very good.

The Tea Leaf Salad is a must. Every bite is slightly different and so delicious and well prepared. Go at lunch time for a better chance for a seat without the long wait. Staff is attentive and friendly.

My ex-husband is from Burma. I know Burmese food. This is not Burmese food. Someone told me this restaurant is owned by people from Hong Kong. I'm not sure if that's true or not but the food is disgusting.

Very tasty food, special menu choices. Popular and trendy, expect to wait for a table. Vegetarian and vegan options. Coconut rice is tasty; it is also sweet, refined white rice. The sauteed eggplant will surprise. Friendly, engaged service. Check out the cookbook.
