Good neighborhood spot
It's a good neighborhood spot, and unlike its sister restaurant, it accepts online reservations. The food is great, and we even took the server's recommendations and were happy with them.

The food here is great! I have eaten here a few times and been so happy each time. The B Sprouts rock my world, and the ribs, duck lettuce cups, and so much more are excellent! I would recommend this to anyone.

I had only been to Burma Superstar
I had only been to Burma Superstar before, and after eating at B Star, I don't know why I didn't make it here before! The food is just a good, with an incredible mix of flavors and textures, and it has the same fantastic service. We had the tea leaf salad, brussels sprouts (maybe my favorite dish!), bread, pork and pumpkin stew, and the sea bass. Everything was cooked perfectly and was great. I can't say enough good things about this place!

I really liked b Star Bar. It is a great neighborhood Gem and the service is fantastic. My group had the tea leaf salad, the mango Papaya Salad, French fries (they are divine), fish tacos, and curry noodles. Everything was great.

Incredible first time experience.
Incredible first time experience. Make reservations and come early. The food is fresh, exciting, healthy and deliciously complex. Lots of choices. We had the tea leaf salad, tacos with ahi tuna, sea bass, fried brussel sprouts, grilled calamari, and dessert. Also, their Vietnamese drip coffee is amazing. A must go!

We went to their sister restaurant, Burma Superstar, and while that was good, not outstanding, we thought B Star Bar was outstanding. The food at B Star is more Pan Asian Fusion. The duck lettuce cups appetizer was delicious, and would be plenty for an entree. The roasted sea bass over spinach was amazing. The bass was cooked tender, flaky, moist, and had a perfect and flavorful crust. The lamb curry was also very good. The lamb was melt-in-your mouth tender. We will definitely go back at B Star.

Always great at B Star
B Star Bar has always been a pleasure. I ask the waiters for suggestions and my only disappointment has been the dipping bread. I found it not very tasty and kind of gummy. Otherwise, everything I've ever had has been superb.

I think this is better than their sister restaurant, Burma Superstar. BStar has some of the favorites of Burma, such as Rainbow Salad. But BStar has wider menu selection with a mix of Pan-Asian dishes.

B Star Bar is my new favorite restaurant.
First time, I had dinner for a friend's birthday. She had her 1 year old son and we had a fabulous dinner there.
Second time, I had breakfast and the food was amazing.
Planning to keep going back.

The food is excellent and
The food is excellent and more diverse than Burma Superstar. And they have BStar's more famous/popular dishese such as rainbow salad. Place was crowded so service was a little slower than normal. The only issue we had at dinner was that they seem not to turn on the AC and the ventilation is not good. So the place was sweltering even though it was about 65 degrees outside !!!

Great food, inventive and delicious. We've been multiple times and does not disappoint.

Have dined here many times and the food is consistently good as is the service. Less crowded than their sister restaurant.

I love this restaurant!
B Star Bar is a favorite of mine. I love everything about it: the food, the drinks, the service, the ambience. I love that it is somehow less popular than its (in every way) inferior sister restaurant down the street. You can't go wrong with anything on the menu, but the tea leaf salad is truly amazing, and a must order.

B Sprouts Rock!
I love the food here...especially the B-Sprouts! I can go in and just eat these, but there are so many good things on the menu. I will go back again and again.

It's a destination for us
We live more than an hour outside SF, but made the trek in response to a request from our daughter who is leaving the state for college. The *one* thing she wanted to do before moving away was a last visit to B Star! The food is always interesting, of top quality and the service is terrific. This has consistently been the case for each of our 4 or 5 experiences there.
7/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
I've only been here a couple of times, but it's consistently great food and friendly service. We tried the grilled calamari to start and it was a surprise hit - spicy, flavorful and really well done. We also had the platha dipper (always great!), the lamb curry, and the biryani. Everything tasted great.

As always (cuz I go here all the time), I love this place; everything about it (food, service..., even the ambience, which can get "energetic." Just shows what a great place this is). Definitely a repeat!!!!!!

What a find!
First ate at B*Star for brunch on Mother's Day and have been back three times since. What a find! The menu offers the best of Burma Superstar with fusion brunch options, all reasonably priced. Best of all, you can make a reservation and not have to wait for a table! Service is friendly and attentive, though at peak times they seem a bit under-staffed.

Great food for the adventurous
The atmosphere is unpretentious (which we liked) and the menu offered many tempting choices. The servers made us feel at home. We were both VERY pleased with what we ordered for lunch. My "Po' Boy" sandwich was a banh mi gone to heaven! Although we live across the Bay and are not in the Clement neighborhood very often, we will definitely go back and explore other possibilities, perhaps with friends so that we can share our dishes.
8/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
Never know what new thing you will find on the menu, Whether you want pancakes or French toast, or want something different -seared tuna on ginger rice with a fried egg (yummy), there is something to for our tast buds to explore.

Consistently good, Every time
This is definitely a favorite SF restaurant. With a smaller menu then their sister restaurant, Burma Superstar, B Star is a perfect option for those wanting the same flavors as Burma Superstar with the ability to reserve a table. The flavors are interesting and everything I've had here has been outstanding.
Definitely a must-go restaurant.

Friendly Dining Spot
I went to B Star Bar alone, trying out new restaurants and finding how single diners are treated. When I entered, I had a reservation, yet was asked if I minded sitting at the bar. I responded that it made no difference and it was fine. However, since I made a reservation, i expected to be seated at a table and dine leisurely. It seemed as if being solo, I was kind of rushed into being seated at the bar. The food was very tasty, especially the brussel sprouts. The entree was good, pumpkin pork stew, but not outstanding. Being a Burmese influenced cuisine, I expected a bit more exotic and it was just good comfort food. Overall a good experience, but not outstanding. Will probably return, but not solo.

Alternative to Burma Super Star
Good alternative to Burma Super Star. Less wait, accept reservations, a little cozier.

Get the garlic chicken noodles and Pork and White beans over Jasmine rice. Super good and not over sauced food. Right balance of natural seasoning.

One of my regular restaurants
There are a few restaurants that I go to regularly and BStar is one of them. I never understood why people waited for hours at Burma Star when this sister restaurant takes reservations and is easier to get in to. I brought a friend who had never eaten here before and she loved the roasted butternut squash soup, pumpkin pork stew, pratha, and above all the Brussels sprouts! I really love this restaurant.

Favorite Brunch Spot
BStar remains our favorite brunch spot. Nowhere else offers such a selection of Asian, Western, and fusion menu items at affordable prices. Service also seems to have caught up with that of sister restaurant Burma Superstar. Wait staff were prompt, attentive, and accommodating to our table of 6, including one active toddler.
