We waited nearly 40 minutes after our reservation time. Our appetizers were bland, seemingly missing ingredients. Our comments were met dismissively— the servers seemed uninterested in our unpleasant experience. We will not return.
Hi Marc, thank you for the feedback. I'm really sorry you had a bad experience with us. Would you grant me a phone call; I'd like to find out more details as we are working at improving the quality of service our staff provide as well as the consistency of the food. Please call me at 917-442-0100 and ask to speak to Daniel (I'm the GM and husband of Chef Myo.) I would really appreciate.
The food tasted like OK thai food in like, Belzoni Mississippi. It was not what one expects in Brooklyn. Surprisingly bland. The braised pork was good though.
They sat us outside and the restaurant was good. This was a wonderful little gem.
I went there and waited for 1 hour until the food is ready. The food taste ok but not worth the price. Waiters are nice. But wait time for the food is ridiculous.
So sorry you had a bad experience with us. We were shorthanded in the kitchen that night. I was literally doing the dishes myself and I'm the General Manager. It's no excuse, I know, but I just want to communicate that this is not how coming here normally is. I know that night I literally comped the entire check for 2 table towards the end of the night because the food took a ridiculous amount of time to arrive and wasn't quite what it should be anyway. Please call me at 347-748-5453 -Daniel
If you want interesting and tasty food, try Rangoon Burmese. The tea leaf salad is amazing, and if you like spicy, ask for them to spice it up. Glass noodle pork was good but meat was fatty. That's the only critique.
Papaya salad, onion fritters, cold noodles, fish cakes and pumpkin stew were all outstanding. Wine program and wine pairings advice were also memorable.
People work here. So nice and accommodating. Awesome food.
Wait staff was knowledgable and great service. Food is delicious. Space is lovely. Our only regret was that it was too cold to sit outside! Covid protocols were properly in place.
They were extremely accommodating at the restaurant. Food was lovely and interesting. Will definitely return.
Delicious and so welcoming. We'll be going again and again.
Food was excellent!
Great addition to area! Excellent food, well conceived wine list and knowledgeable waiter.
The food was wonderful, servers very attentive without being overbearing and the garden very pleasant. I’d definitely return!
The food was really bad. I had been to Rangoon before a few months ago and the food was really good. So I went again with my family and it was really bad. Everything was wrong. It was tasteless and my coconut chicken noodles came with no Chicken. When I asked about it they apologized and brought the chicken separately. It didn’t really help make it better though. It was still tasteless.
A neighborhood gem. So nice to be able to try Burmese cuisine
Excellent service, top-notch food for a range of palettes, and a beautiful backyard garden. A new neighborhood staple for Southeast Asian cooking.
Great food, lovely service! Thanks for a wonderful experience.
These Mercer Kitchen alum have created a lovely dining experience. Really happy to have made the trek out to partake. If I lived in Brooklyn I would be a regular.
Love the backyard outdoor seating
Terrific food and the outdoor seating area in back is spacious and quiet. The chairs were a bit uncomfortable, and the pacing of the service wasn't ideal, but they might have been short staffed due to COVID. We still enjoyed our meal. The onion fritters, chicken curry and side of cucumber salad were the highlights.
sad excuse for "burmese" food; lacked basic flavor. however, the presentation makes sense why this place is popular. very "instagramable". better off having thai food.
Food and service were great.
Delicious food. Private and pleasant outdoor seating. Highly recommend. Thanks
Beef and potatoe had too much salt in it.
Chicken khau suey was bland.
The jury is in: Rangoon is an attempt to upscale classical Burmese cuisine. But in doing so it loses a lot of what makes Burmese food exciting for me. I know a lot of people compare Rangoon to places they've been in the Bay Area and maybe this is unfair because the Bay Area has a Burmese food culture, but my comparison is to Yoma in Boston, which is an extremely simple restaurant and also extremely inexpensive. By the way, I have been to those restaurants in the Bay Area and I like them a lot. But there is something bland about Rangoon and there's something overly gloppy and oily about it too. I really don't want to say that it's Burmese food for hipster Brooklyn, but I don't know what else to say!
The food was amazing but the service was only okay. No one had approached us to see how we were doing for a long time, and then when someone finally did, we asked for our check as we were finished dinner, and were told they needed the table and we had to leave. We said - yep we just need the check! And we were told again they needed us to leave. It was a very strange and cold experience - if there was a certain time frame on the table, we were happy to abide by that, but no one approached us to check in or move us along. Unfortunately ended the meal in a weird way.
The food at Rangoon is incredible - we've gotten takeout from here several times, but this was our first experience dining there and it's even more delicious. The coconut chicken noodle soup is the ultimate sophisticated comfort food!
We never tried Burmese food so we're not experts. It was different from what we usually eat and if I can compare it to any other SE Asian food, it would be closest to Thai maybe. The pumpkin- squash curry and Tamarind limeade are good. The service is good. Outdoor dining in the back is cute.
The food was amazing, and everyone was nice. A lovely place!
We had a very lovely brunch at Rangoon. We sat in their back garden area which was very nice. Large portions of food were a bit pricey. Great cocktails and a really good orange wine selection. Would recommend!
Excellent food and service - and a lovely outside garden in back that was delightful!
Amazing spot! Food delicious, outdoor dining has a cute setup, wish I had been hungrier to try more!
We were expecting big, bold flavors and found them soft and quiet. The fish soup had no fish, little flavor, and was mostly noodles. The "street salad" tasted like it came out of a box. The tamarind pumpkin soup was decent. Maybe they are resting on their laurels a bit too much these days. I heard it used to be good.
Hi, Chef Myo has never been about big, bold flavors. Like Pete Wells pointed out in his article on us "She doesn’t turn the knobs all the way up on fermented flavors, chile heat, pork fat and other intensifiers in an effort to to be heard over New York’s background noise, the way some chefs do. Instead she emphasizes the subtlety and freshness that Burmese cooks prize". People like different styles, that's fine. Also, you won't find fish pieces in our fish noodle soup, it's a fish broth.
Food was amazing and the outdoor seating was perfect. Sometimes the servers took awhile to get to us because they're running between the restaurant and the outdoor seating area, but otherwise it was absolutely perfect.
Super cool vibe (including lots of outdoor seating), great service, and delicious dishes - served on cute pottery. The manager was great at giving menu suggestions. The only complaint is that they ran out of some dishes. I'll definitely be back!
Seriously good food and drinks with a cool modern classic vibe.
A beautiful little restaurant! Our first time eating Burmese food and we couldn't have been more pleased.
Disappointing meal and service levels. Understand we're in a pandemic but just not an enjoyable meal overall.
Good food and drinks. Lovely outdoor dining. Not too noisy on a Sunday afternoon.
I’m so sad to write this review because I was really excited to try Burmese food and this place had good reviews on Google. My 3 stars is due to two things - the food and the value.
$15 for 4 pieces of shrimp (chili shrimp) is something I have never seen or heard of, nor the group I was with. We felt robbed.
Overall the dishes need to be larger if you’re charging that much for them. It’s not a fine dining place where portions are expected to be small and expensive. It’s a casual neighborhood spot.
Chickpea curry noodles were over cooked and lacked flavor (and sauce).
Tea leaf salad lacked excitement and flavor. Just tasted like I was eating raw chopped cabbage with a neutral oil.
Rice - for that amount in those small silver bowls you should be charging $2 or $3 at most — not $5
Fish curry was really good - flavorful, soft, crispy, keep that up!
Staff was super friendly and attentive.
Hi Emily, thank you for your feedback. As you can see on our menu our side of jasmine rice is actually $3 and comes free with the curries. The coconut rice is $4. I really don't know how anyone could be charged $5 for our sides of rice since there's specific buttons for it in our system. Also, our appetizer called "Chili Prawns" is not shrimp, it's prawns. Anyways, to each their own, that's what's greater about living in NYC. An entire spectrum of price points for everyone to find their own.
