Apparently they take no reservations. The food is very good and quite popular. I had the famous tea leaves salad, samosas and eggplant in garlic souse. All were quite good, particularly eggplant that melts in your mouth. However, you have to literally twist their hands to make it really hot (meaning spicy). I requested my eggplant as fiery as possible... More

This is my first experience with Burmese food, so I can't comment on its authenticity, but wow, this was yummy. Fresh and well-prepared meal. The line out the door should have told me something. We arrived around 2 p.m. on a weekday, and were able to keep our wait at a reasonable length (around 10 minutes) by agreeing to sit... More

I loved the food.. but get there early as they do not take reservations and it's a very popular place! I had the tea leave salad, very tasty and first experience for me. Then the pork belly chili.. very tasteful and only medium spicy. Loved the food accompanied by a ginger lemon beer. Definitely go here!

We went to this cute restaurant for lunch. Reached in time as they close at 3 pm for lunch. Ordered some mice salad and samosas for starters. For the main course ordered tofu noodles, prawns with walnuts, okra and egg curry and a chicken dish. All were excellent. Also had coconut rice and brown rice. They also served a great... More

We got here just before they opened for dinner and there were already half a dozen people waiting for the door to open. I had heard about Burmese food (a little bit of India, a taste of Thai, a pinch of Indonesian flavor and a sprinkling of China, with additional flavors and spices) and had wanted to try it for...

Found it on Trip Advisor as highest rated restaurant in the area so of course I had to tried. I asked the very helpful and friendly waitress to make suggestions for first timers like me to Burmese. She suggested the house specials, Tea Leaf Salad and Sumosa Soup combo. Wow and wow! Flavors were amazing. Salad was crunchy and fresh.... More

There is nothing more upsetting than being disappointed from a super hyped rating from a restaurant. Yes, just like anyone else, we had to put our names down and wait for about an hour or less to get a table for 6 which we honestly didn't mind at all since we were prepared for the long wait. We in fact... More

We just loved it! The beers were great and super cold, as beer should be. We both ordered their famous salad and shared it. Then we had one garlic shrimp, with lots of garlic, hot peppers and cilantro and also a pork dish. Both were superb.

Gotta love this place. Its popular, but worth the wait. They have a great menu...the tea leaf salad is AMAZING. I haven't tried much of the menu, but my friends all loved everything that they had as well. Highly recommended!
