We visited Mandalay at the recommendation of friends who consider it to be better than Burma Superstar. Our sense is that both are equally good experiences. Mandalay has a better ambience and decor. We would recommend the mango salad and also at least one order...More

We loved all the food at Mandalay. My son's girlfriend recommended this restaurant in her neighborhood and it didn't disappoint. Attentive service and fresh food. Very busy on a Friday which is a testament to their reputation.

An off-beat restaurant (away from the centre / no-frills), the accent here is squarely on the cuisine and the service. Delectable Burmese food & warm, prompt service.

Occasionally in my travels I run into a restaurant that makes me consider if it might actually be worth moving to the city it’s in so I could go there regularly. There are currently 3 restaurants on Mr. Snoots Short List of Restaurants That Might...More

We were a group of 4 adults and 4 kids. The food we ordered was yummy. The place is very crowded on a Friday evening. We were seated in 10-15 mins, even though we were told the wait was 35 mins. The food was delicious....More
