Awesome foodThe chicken and shrimp biryani is delicious, as is the basil beef.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat placeHave been here three times - the food was always fantastic! The blend of flavors, aromas and colors is truly exciting and the atmosphere is energetic. The cocktails are great and the wines are wonderful (they introduced me to Cloudy Bay Sauvignon Blanc which I have bought several times since.)5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMWe were a family group ofWe were a family group of four adults and one child. The service was very good; plates were taken away promptly and water re-filled without asking. When asked about ingredients in a particular dish, the server was informative. Tea leaf salad was excellent . Made with fermented tea leaves, it had great contrasts in textures. It was a nice touch that the server mixed the ingredients at the table. We were there for Mother's Day lunch. It's a very pleasant place for a relaxed dining experience while enjoying burmese food.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMSF-quality food, here in Palo AltoFlavorful food. I was glad that the staff listens when you say you like it spicy. Meal was great. I do wish there were a few more tea leaves in the tea leaf salad.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMChef's are from Burma superstarChef's are from Burma superstar - no wonder the food is so well done!

Popular, reservations are honored but are a must.4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMToo noisy for kids. Don'tToo noisy for kids. Don't take your kids there. They are not kid friendly.4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMI found this place on YelpI found this place on Yelp when I was searching for a not so expensive place in Palo Alto to have dinner with my old bosses in my recent visit to the bay area. I made the reservation online without knowing that I've been here before for lunch. (I used to go to lunch with a group of friends every Wednesday, and we would dine at different restaurants every week.) They have really good reviews and only two $$ so I was sold! :)
When we got to the restaurant, I realized that I have eaten here before. I don't recall being super happy with my lunch experience but the dinner experience was awesome! I would definitely return! Our server was very nice too! :)
Only 4 stars because it's not kid-friendly (I have a baby), the place is too small.4/8/2013 12:00:00 AMOverall remarkable with tooOverall remarkable with too many positive adjectives to list here, but two: the food and service. Will definitely be back...4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMVery attractive, modern &Very attractive, modern & well lighted small restaurant. The food is unusual & 2 of us had the Tea Leaf Salad which we both liked & found quite exotic. We've never tasted such flavors. An excellent balance of crispy & crunchy with soft veggies. The soft tea leaves are a very unusual flavor & an acquired taste. The waiter mixed the combinations of nuts, grains and vegetables while explaning the dish. I person would reorder this but I would try other dishes first. 1 person in our party had the garlic noodles with duck and considered it a new favorite. Although a small looking portion it was very filling. We shared the black sticky rice dessert again because of the adventure. Tasty but prefer traditional sticky rice w/coconut milk & mangoes.4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMService was great. Food wasService was great. Food was very tasty.

I ordered and got a mildly spicy version and will go back there many times. Noise is a bit of a problem3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMAs good as it getsThis place is truly a gem! I am very excited to have found this rather remarkable place. Unique, enjoyable and definitely an important addition to Palo Alto's dining scene Rangoon Ruby is a restaurant that I will return to often. In addition to exceptional food there are a number of other small touches that make this restaurant stand apart from the rest including very dignified and classy owners that clearly take great pride in focusing on every conceivable detail designed to make their guests' experience special. It is clear that they treat their diners as if they are guests in their own home. Putting all of these special touches aside note that the main attraction stars brightly: the food is superb.
