Terrific food at fair prices. Some dishes are pretty spicy, so be sure to ask if that's a concern for you.

The food is so good there was four of us so we shared a lot. Had the Lamb Curry, Garlic Noodles with Roast Duck, Pad Tai with Tofu, Chicken Salad, Spice String Beans and Samosa's. I highly recommend all of that. It was so good plus they have a great wine list.

Great flavors we were 4 of us and shared 4 entree and a tea leaf salad plus the beans and mango fried rice. It was excellent. We had plenty of food and brought home the left overs. Could share three mains with 4 people easily. Or even 2 mains with the two sides and a salad. Excellent experience.

Staff was very attentive. First impression of the dishes ordered were less than expected with the exception of the green beans, they were done to perfection. The batter (I use Wondra for the flour) for the calamari was heavier than I liked, but the dipping sauce was just fine. The Pumpkin chicken was more pumpkin than small chicken.

A return trip is likely to try some of the specials.

Dinner with a friend for her birthday. Green tea salad was a bit disappointing —dressing was essentially all oil and tasteless. The Pepper Beef entree was, however, excellent. The beef was of high quality which set it apart from most beef dishes at similar restaurants. Our Burma Shrimp entree proved a good choice though was not
as enjoyable as the pepper beef.

Service was fine though the crew cleared my
seatmate’s plate while I was eating and before she was finished. Though there were a dozen open tables, we felt pressured to leave due to the many interruptions asking if we were finished.

We absolutely love Burma Burma! We eat here at least 2-3 times per month. The food is outstanding. A must have us the Tea Leaf Salad, now prepared with cabbage and equally as delicious as the original. Sesame Beef is our favorite beef dish and our current favorite chicken choice is Kabat Chicken. The wait staff is attentive, friendly and efficient. We see the same waitors and bussers week after week, so they are certainly doing something right to maintain their staff!

Enjoyed our lunch this past Saturday - first time for that time of day. One disappointment: we had heard about their great lunch specials - BUT only on week days. Will just have to go back and try them during the week.
Food was once again flavorful, served promptly and with a smile. Very nice wait staff and support staff.
Can't seem to get enough of the Green Tea salad - excellent and enjoy watching the staff mix it at the table.
Chicken Pad Thai was very good as well.
Also found that we could not use their 'buy one entree, get 50% off 2nd entree" coupon because two of our three items were not entree's - thats ok, just need to be aware of the 'fine print' on coupons and order accordingly.

Great Burmese food at inexpensive prices. My wife and I went with a mutual friend and we had 3 appetizers and shared two entrees and took a little bit home. Everything was excellent...especially the tea leaf salad. THAT...was other worldly and if you order, have them mix it at your table. This food is between spicy and very spicy but it was all top quality beef and chicken in the main courses and the Calamari appetizer was very, very good too. I think it was a Calamari steak cut into bite sized pieces and lightly fried. Really tender fish. The atmosphere is pretty plain and our primary waiter was pretty bad..he did not listen...but the food was definitely worth the visit. We will return often.

This is one of my favorite spots for lunch and actually the best Burmese restaurant I have been to. They have delicious lunch specials at reasonable prices and great portions. I usually go with my coworkers, we always get a tea leaf salad to share for the table and our own lunch specials.
My go-to dish is either the Burmese chicken curry or the basil and dried chili beef with coconut rice, the coconut rice is a must! They also let you determine how spicy you want your food. The first time I came here, I got spicy and it was so spicy I couldn't eat much of it (not in a bad way, I love spicy food). Second time, I wanted to taste the flavors more so I got medium, but it was not spicy at all! Since then, I always get spicy, the coconut rice usually balances it out pretty well. Make sure you ask for hot sauce, it's super spicy and yummy.
Another thing that stands out to me here is the service, everyone is so nice and professional. It's like the service you would get at a fancier restaurant, they even have the little table scrapers to clean up all the scraps on the table. I've only seen this at up-scale restaurants, so I thought that was a nice touch.
Never been here for dinner, but would like to try it out. Their menu for lunch is restricted to a limited number of items, the dinner menu looks much more extensive. Definitely a nice place to eat with your family, friends, or anyone really. :)

The food was awesome and the service was excellent. They made sure the dishes arrived one by one and not all at once and frequently enquired if everything was ok. The Birthday surprise was very good, they brought a scoop of icecream with a candle for a celebration. Over all, it was a great experience.
