Overall, food was good, service was very good. The samosa soup was outstanding! Everything else was good but not spicy enough.
Almost all the dishes were excellent. The only dish we didn’t like was the garlic noodles. The fermented Tea Salad, Palatha, Mohinga chicken noodle soup, lamb curry and shrimp w/ Myanmar Chutney were all excellent. Portions were pretty big too.
Great food and service with nice décor both inside and outside.
We went with a reservation and they seated us at an outdoor spot just like we asked.
The host and the waitstaff was very warm and service was quite quick.
The tea leaf salad and the Shaan noodles were delicious.
And try their ginger honey tea. It’s excellent.
Always great food and great service and a beautiful patio with good heating lamps. Never disappoints.
We loved our experience at Burma Love, the food was delicious, the ambiance inside beautiful and the service on point, would definitely be back again. Great dinner spot after VanGogh exhibit.
A 5 minute walk from Marriott Marquis. A great meal:sizzling shrimp, pork belly, beef curry. We’ll come back on our next trip to SF.
Waited 30 mins to get served and waited 90 minutes to get our food at. Didn’t seem to busy
Excellent service. Everyone was super friendly and the food was amazing!
Jimmy was great! I’m going to ask for a Jimmy table next time. Food and wine was delicious ;)
Excellent food and service
It was my birthday celebration. Dinner was fabulous, recommend trying the Burma soup. Drinks was also delicious - eye of the tiger and burmarita.
Our server was jimmy and he went all out with service! Made it a very fun night!
Delicious food, chic vibe, and wonderful table service
Fantastic service, drinks, and food. Great date spot!
Seems like some of the food wasn’t quite as good. The string beans weren’t cooked the same as in the past. They seemed under cooked. Also pea shoots were very “stalky” almost like tiny branches. Where in the past they were tender. Tea leaf salad was good as usual & shrimp with noodles were also nice.
Despite the LONG wait, excellent food! I will definitely dine here again next time I am in San Francisco
We went for a B-Day dinner. Delicious food. Service was a bit slow but the server expressed the staff was short.
The food was very good! We ordered the shrimp with chili glaze, ginger pork belly, coconut rice ( I am a HUGE fan of toasted coconut and our bowls weren’t served any after being excited about that, but the rice was DEVINE), platha w dip (tasted like a homemade tortilla that was very expensive ) and the tea leaf rice. The tea leaf rice was one of the most outstanding dishes I have enjoyed from a restaurant ever! The drink Eye of the Tiger was delicious! We had a great evening! We dined outdoor on the patio, which was a little chilly with only one heater on at the time we dined! Definitely going back and gave high recommendations to family and friends! Next dinner is already booked!
Jimmy and Julio were most gracious servers. Food and drinks for Happy Hour were great (Eye of the Tiger cocktail for sure). Celebrating a very special day; glad I picked Burma Love!
Neo was a fabulous waiter
Food and drink were amazing
We loved the food, ambiance, decor , and our waiter Julio was outstanding.
Great and different flavors. Awesome cocktails and friendly service.
One of the best experiences, hands down. Jimmy was an amazing server and their entire team was just so great! Would definitely come back again!
The tea leaf salad is a must try, such a unique dish with SO much flavor. We also enjoyed the craft cocktails. The menu has a ton of options and everything we had was great!
Amazing. Service and food was so good. We sat indoors due to lack of outdoor seatings but they had their floor to ceiling doors open so it felt like we were dining outdoors. The staff were very respectful of all COVID regulations and felt really safe dining there. The garlic noodles is a must order.
Great vibe excellent food. Bar tenders were awesome
Great patio! The heat lamps kept us warm and the planter boxes made it feel secluded. Everything was delicious, especially the dessert! Flatbread with a sweet sauce and macapuno (young coconut ice cream). This is the nicest location of the Burma Superstar family.
Food and cocktails are always excellent and consistent. Well worth the prices, which are reasonable. Good service.
Amazing service & we loved the music that was playing. As always the food is absolutely amazing! We love Burma love & superstar’s locations and Burma Club was just a great experience for out door dining.
Burma club, Burma love and Burma superstar are some of my favorite restaurants in the city, Burma club especially because of the beautiful ambience there.
Svetlana and Jimmy, the wait staff there took really good care of us and felt like they really went out of their way to make sure we were comfortable and enjoying ourselves.
Great food and ambiance! There was some confusion with our order and the service - I’m sure a one-off situation that isn’t representative of their norm.
I’ll 100% be going back!
The staff are incredible and the food is great! What more can I ask for?
It's the perfect patio to hit up during COVID. The heat lamps made such a difference in our dining experience and it didn't feel like we were sitting out on the road because of the private nature of their patio. The food was alright - I still prefer Burma Love or Burma Superstar for the same items that we ordered. The Mango lassi/whiskey cocktail was on point both in terms of pricing and taste!
Super secret spot beautiful interior and exterior! Nicest people ever and even better food ! Will start coming here more often
Cuisine so interesting. From fermented tea-leaf salad (not to be missed) to warm out of the oven black rice pudding, food splendid. Waiter routinely asked how we were doing but not in an intrusive fashion. We will come again!
Fermented tea salad was great. But the Burmese curry was a bit disappointing, the beef was very chewy and the sauce was salty.
The patio and interior looks great, service was fantastic.
