Nice variety of options for GF dining, and the server took care to communicate to the kitchen our needs - as one diner had celiac disease. Our food was delicious and our food sensor test always indicated that food was GF. The service was excellent all around. A nice dining experience

Customer service can greatly improved, often rude!

The food and drinks are always great here. It's a bit loud on a Friday night, weekdays are usually better.

We like this place and it's sister restaurant on University in Palo Alto.
One downside: this is the second time we've been here when the food comes way too fast.
We came here with another couple to enjoy the interesting dishes (like the tea leaf salad) and to catch up with old friends. But the meal felt too rushed.

Excellent array of dishes--the appetizers were as delicious as the main courses. Our server was especially attentive, personable, and efficient.

The food is always delicious - especially the coconut noodle soup and the mango salad. Yum! Other favorites are the coconut sticky rice, pumpkin and salmon stew, and green beans. Their bar drinks are also really good. A great place for a delicious meal and a fun night out.

As always the fermented tea leaf salad was the highlight of the meal, but the mango chicken was also quite delicious!

It was Christmas Eve and very busy and crowded. Lots of families. Everyone was celebrating. Beautiful to see such happiness. It was like a big party. Food and service was excellent!!

Very tasty and interesting! We come to this restaurant and their sister restaurant on University Ave (Palo Alto) somewhat frequently. In the past we felt very rushed here, but the service this time was MUCH better. Attentive, prompt, but not at all rushed.
Everything was good! The salads, appetizers, entrees. All sharable and interesting.
Extensive wine list and cocktail list, and they also made several other cocktails not on the cocktail menu.

I loved all of their non-meat options, including many tasty tofu dishes.

The food is good but they do not know what they are doing. Forgot the tomatos in the salad. Only put 4 shrimp in Pad Tai when there are supposed to be 6. You need to get your act together as when done right the food is good.

We were greeted and seated right away. Our table was off of the main entrance and there was a cold draft but upon mention, the host closed the door. Server was quick, very attentive and the food came in no time. My friends who have never been to this restaurant were very impressed. Food was delish as always. We had the green tea salad, chicken crisp, beef basil, shrimp walnut and shrimp curry. Tons of food for the four of us. Can't wait to go back!

Tables are way too close together, hard to talk, hard to hear...really uncomfortable.

Birthday, the waitress was really nice but the remaining folks bringing in food from inside were rude and unfriendly.

I really loved the food here, the only thing is that it was my our first time there, and we would've loved that our waiter had mentioned that plates are big and good for sharing, we had so many left-overs, but apart from that everything was super good!

We had the tea leaf salad, nan gyi dok, and the lamb curry which was recommended by our server. All were delicious! In my opinion, worth coming here over Burma Superstar as there is no wait and they take reservations.

Amazing flavors! This is a find. The selections and diversity is perfection. From the tea salad, Calamari appitizer's, Coconut rice, and diversity of fish, chicken and meat dishes, this is a winner!

Was eager to check this restaurant out based on reviews. My greatest complaint is that the entries were lukewarm at best and one had cold chicken mixed in with warm - unpleasant. The noodles were over cooked, as well. Though table side presentation was very nice. Just ok for two @ $100, could have done better elsewhere

We always have the tea leaf salad to share, so tasty! And also the pumpkin shrimp. Service is very quick. Will definitely go back when in Palo Alto

It was a little weird that the wine selection was on an iPad. This was a cool gimmick but didn't really help us decide what to drink and cluttered the table. The staff was very attentive, but this could have been because they could clearly tell we were on a date. We both ordered the pad thai, which was very good if somewhat simple. Wasn't expecting much more from that dish. The prices are a little steep, but I moved to the Bay recently so it could be that I am just experiencing sticker shock. Great ambience. Cool decorations. A little noisy for a date.

What a find!!!!
We were visiting family, and they suggested we try Rangoon Ruby's out. What a delightful experience, the food was memorable! We ordered the shrimp with walnuts, crispy chicken, and several other dishes, and all were delicious! We can hardly wait to go back!!!
I strongly recommend you try it out!!!
