I had lunch here on a weekday and it was crazy packed. It's a very small space and they do lunch specials so there were swarms of people. The food was good and fun to try (I never had Burmese food before) but personally the...More

My wife and I loved almost everything about the restaurant. Sure, it was cramped, and unless you showed up before the 17:00 opening time, you were destined to wait outside for a bit, but aside from that, it's great. The food was delicious. The tea...More

This place is the true San Francisco experience!! I recommend the tea leaf salad, nan gyi dok, chicken dahl, and black rice pudding!! I’m seriously considering coming back to San Fran just to go to this restaurant again!!

Arrived to see a queue but we had been warned so it wasn't a surprise! Decided instead of waiting, we would take away. The staff were lovely and helpful and gave us tea outside whilst we waited. The food did not disappoint - SO good.

The food is great. The atmosphere is lively (if you're hard of hearing maybe too much so). The menu includes foods you'd find at the best restaurants in Yangon, not street faire. Take my friends there all the time.

I wish I knew the answer to that but we never asked. I hope for your sake they do because the food is off the hook! I’d call and ask. Sorry I can’t be more help!

Since it is Asian based, they probably have gluten-free mainstays like noodles, and also great salads.

I really have no idea. I don't live in SF anymore, so don't get a chance to use apps there. I just went back for a visit a month or so ago.
