    Ordered the onion fritters, tea leaf salad, and spicy mee shay noodles. Fritters: good but burned, nothing earth shattering Tea leaf salad: very yummy and unique, must get Spicy mee shay noodles: forgettable. Swimming in oil. But a huge portion of noodles, if that's what you're looking for. I can see this being a good hangover cure. I ordered with pork, and was SHOCKED at the small amount i got for $4 Service: slooow. Seemed like the servers were new/nervous but nice and trying their best. Probably needed better training?

    Not sure if we came on an off night. Food was bland and the noodles in my soup soggy, fried chicken app was not very well cooked. Drinks and service were great though. Overall not bad but overpriced for what you get.

    Sorry to say I was generally disappointed. Our appetizers- shrimp skewers and fried chicken- were yummy and I enjoyed the pickled veg and sauce. But that's where it ends. Our entrees were nothing to write home about...spicy mee shay noodles had zero spice, zero texture, and pretty one note...a bowl of black bean sauce and small quantities of texture-less pork. The end! My boyfriend's tea leaf pork was tasty, but again no spice, no excitement, meh? Overall the lack of flavor and small portions definitely do no justify the overpriced entrees (which were higher priced than what's listed on the menu). Prices are good if you actually enjoy your food. Sadly, I've had much better food from a street vendor at half the price and twice the taste. Maybe I'll try Happy Hour because I liked my Apps, but definitely not dinner. Save your coins!

    I picked this restaurant as it was named one of the best places to eat in NY. On arrival we were greeted with a smile and shown to our table. We were provided with water and drinks orders were taken. The menu is fantastic and the food was unbelievable. There were other groups eating and talking creating a nice ambiance but not noisy. I was surprised how cheap the bill was for the quality of the food. This was easily the best meal of my whole NYC holiday. Cannot recommend this enough.

    Solid food, especially the noodle soups. Was anticipating coming here to test whether the food brought back childhood memories of Burmese cuisine. It passed the test. I received a coupon for a percentage off entrees and I'd surely come back again

    Took a friend here who was visiting out of town. Food and ambiance was fine. Service definitely questionable as we had 2 servers stop by to “check in” on us throughout our meal and interrupt the conversation. Really just felt like a tactic to get us out of there faster even though the restaurant was mostly empty? I wouldn’t say our stay was longer than typical patrons, so very confusing. Disappointed to put my guest through a rushed meal.

    I wanted to try Yangon taste as soon as I saw it on the list of Burmese restaurants in New York. It was also listed High on timeout. The ambiance is nice and calm. But, the food was just ok. The mango salad was good but the fritters were soggy. The drinks are good but the noodle was very bland. Being a Burmese person, I can definitely say that the food could be better. And, there was another disappointment. After we finished eating, while we were waiting to get our credit cards back, someone from the restaurant came and told us that we have to leave in 15 min even though we were just waiting for them to give us our cards back. He was unapologetic even though he found out that we were just waiting for our cards. Even without this disappointment, won’t be going back because the food is not that good.

    Excellent restaurant in a quaint location of Bushwick. Would visit again for sure - just take note there is outdoor seating in the back. We were unaware that there was outdoor seating behind the restaurant and had assumed it was only street side. Had we known, we would've definitely had a table outside in the back and not inside.

    More of a 2.5, but I'm rounding down, due to this restaurant failing to meet expectations. We came here on a Sunday night and we were sat outside in the backyard. The quaint outdoor seating was nicely decorated. The area was well-lit by strings of light bulbs on the walls. It was relatively busy, and all the backyard seats were filled during the duration of our meal. We were hoping to be blown away by delicious and unique food, but Rangoon failed to deliver. We've never had Burmese food before, but after eating here, we aren't impressed. Or maybe we ordered the wrong things, but with such a small menu, I expected them to at least nail 90% of it, but they didn't. We only enjoyed the onion fritters and the dessert. After our meal, we were all still hungry. But the waiting time for the food to be served was 30-40 minutes, so we didn't ask for more entrees. Portions were all small and prices were high for what we received. The service was alright, but slow and not the most attentive. We had to wait for a good while before we could spot a server to wave over. The food left unsightly yellow stains on the white plastic tables which were not conducive to our appetites. The staff didn't take initiative to clean the tables as we waited for the next round of food or change the plates, or add water, and had to be asked to. I'm a bit concerned about the way things are carried to and from the back area, because I heard utensils dropping on more than one occasion during our meal. Ultimately, Rangoon was a huge disappointment for people who wished to try Burmese cuisine for the first time, as nearly everything we've had was lacking in flavor. I highly doubt we will be coming back, unless there's a massive overhaul of some sort.

    OMG. This place is fabulous. The food was outstanding. Service superb. What’s not to like! We ordered an assortment of things from the curry, small plate, and noodle listings. Small plate choices: onion fritters, pork shoulder slaw. And the winner: pork slaw. Curry choices: fish cake curry, pumpkin curry, pork curry And the winners in order: pork curry, pumpkin, fish cake (this was a tough choice as all 3 were spectacular) Noodles: garlic noodles. Side: cabbage and sausage Everything was so delicious and differently flavored. We were all concerned that things would taste the same, but not at all. Spice level was quite low, that may be how Burmese food is spiced, but judging from the surrounding cuisines, I think they tamed things for American palates. Run, don’t walk to this cozy, delicious place with great food and cocktails! Skip dessert
