Went to this place to meet a friend for dinner. It is very close to the San Carlos CalTrain station. They don't offer cocktails but have a small, but good choice of beers, and wine. The food is delivered quickly and is very good.
San Carlos location's gone downhill. We were there when restaurant was empty and yet server messed up our order and the food we got was bland - whole group felt dishes were under-par and lesser than we had received before at this location. I've had take-out from Burlingame restaurant than was better than that evening in San Carlos. On the positive side, they were extremely attentive with water. For the price, I would not go back again.
Quick service just before closing! Food was delicious!
Wow, I had never been here before. everything was so flavorful and the waiter we had was so nice and considerate. It was my friend's 60th birthday and we were all stuffed after dinner but he brought a little ice cream with a sparkly candle in it. So nice! i highly recommend the mango chicken!
Fun sparkler on the birthday ice cream was a perfect finish to our ladies only dinner!
Waitress served the drinks but never came back to take our order. We have to call the manager and she took our order. Also, the sales tax charge was more than the legal one in San Carlos, CA
The food is fabulous and the service is just as good. The only issue with this location is the tables are just too close to each other.
Thank you for the feedback, Susan! We appreciate the comments and are glad you joined us. We look forward to your next visit.
I liked the food and the environment. I was looking for a place to meet a friend and talk and we stayed a long time, enjoyed the food and we felt comfortable staying as long as we did. It is the first Burmese restaurant I tried but I would definitely go again.
Thank you for the rating and review. We are glad to hear that you enjoyed your first time trying Burmese and look forward to having you back to explore more! We were happy to have you in. Take care!
We come to this neighborhood restaurant a lot as love the food. However it is very noisy restaurant and therefore hard to hold a conversation. We also had a problem with the sequencing of the food... our main course arrived long after we were done with appetizer and noodle dish, so we ended up taking it home. Pricy $$$
Thank you for the feedback. Though we are glad to see that you loved the food, we apologize for the pacing of the meal and noise level. We appreciate your comments and will definitely share them with our team! It was great hearing from you and we hope to have you back soon.
Food was great, but the server and noise level were not. It was hard having a conversation and the server was apathetic and not really helpful.
Rico terrific waiter. Food was top rate Basil chili lamb and Burmese Shrimp pad Thai excellent
The service was outstanding and the food was absolutely fabulous! We look forward to going back to this restaurant on a regular basis.
Wow! Thank you so much for the lovely review. It was a delight to see how much you loved your experience. We look forward to seeing you again.
Went her for Valentine’s Day dinner so maybe not the best day to go out due to the crowds. Nothing special or tasty about the place. Very crowded and cramped quarters for dinner. Service was slow to the fact that we thought they had forgotten us at one point. I don’t have high hopes for Valentine’s Day in general but felt this place was really a disappointment. Have lived int the area for years but had never been here and really don’t think I will be going back. So many better choices in the area!
Service slow, loud too the point you have to almost scream to speak with someone and I didn’t care for the food. I would never go back.
OMG. We have been talking about going to this place. We finally did. What great food. The lettuce cups with chicken and shrimp. We to die for ad was the Mango chicken. We will be back.
We always enjoy coming to Rangoon Ruby. The samosa salad has always been fabolous - this time it was disappointing. Maybe one of the ingredients was missing. ..The Basil chilie swai ( fish) was good , but not as good as usual. The vegetarian dish was very good. The Resturant was busy and they appeared to be short staffed. The service was slow but efficient and friendly.
Food & service were good The dishes were delicious Restaurant had good vibes this night
compare to Palo Alto branch their food wasnot as favorable as the other one
The service was not anywhere near as good as at it was at the Rangoon Ruby in Belmont the last time we visited. We had four dishes ALL of which were well prepared, presented and tasty. Especially enjoyed the Cajun style catfish.
Service has been slow lately. Food is always good but maybe they are short staffed?
Always great food, service, ambiance! Great place to bring guest and visitors from out of town.
There are several Burmese restaurants in the mid-Peninsula area. Simply stated, the San Carlos Rangoon Ruby is great. Food was very tasty and server Karen was top-notch. Definitely a "go-back".
Service could of been more attentive, I had to ask the server to pour us more wine and to bring my children more beverages. When we were leaving there was no one to wish us a good night, it appeared that all of the staff were on a break together.
Everything we've tried has been tasty and consistently good.
Food poorly prepared and presented, heavy oil slick on two dishes. Something crunchy (like dirt/sand) in shrimp lettuce wrap.
Service was robotic like the waiter wanted to be somewhere else. Nobody asked why we didn't eat our food. They could care less! We walked out the door vowing not to return.
Screwed at Rangoon Ruby. Wow.
Great food. Great service. We love it! Will be back.
Delicious, as always! Don't miss the tea leaf salad . . .
Amazing food! Such a diverse palate sensation. I love the Tea salad and the Fried Calamari is the best ever!
The Walnut Prawns to die for and the Coconut Rice amazing. The Jalapeno and Mint Chicken was good too!
I can't wait to go back!
Great food. Noisy. Try to sit outside. Took FOREVER to get served.
Enjoyed the tea salad, rice noodles and lemongrass pork. Dinner is served family style - so be prepared to share!
We dine here frequently, both for lunch and dinner. Food is consistently fresh, tasty and beautifully presented. If you ask for spicy, be prepared to call out the fire dept to quench the fire!
Excellent flavors and presentation of food. Very attractive dining room with nice linens. A little on the noisy side and service was slow. We went at 1 pm for lunch and it was quieter then. Will return.
Great authentic Burmese food, do not go a lifetime without their fermented tea salad, their version of samosas and pad thai. Many great options - both paleo, vegetarian and vegan. Very fresh. Great service. One downside - parking (San Carlos) is an issue. Allow ample time to find parking.
To be honest I have experienced better Burmese cuisine. So I would give them 3 stars. However, their service has been consistently good and attentive that they deserve the 4th star. Also I love the Burmese print art on their walls. The restaurant has great light and feels welcoming. They also have many options on their menu for vegetarians and meat lovers. They just need to improve the quality of their food and then they would be a solid 4-star restaurant.
I have never been disappointed at these restaurants 😀
Very enjoyable experience for our out of town guests.
Food and service were excellent!
This was one of the top 3 meals of my life; I am in San Carlos a few times a year for work and will definitely be back every time I'm in town!! It was also great that they have gluten-free options available which made it easy for me.
We love coming to Rangoon Ruby in San Carlos. The food is always excellent. This time however, the samosa salad was not quite as good as it normally is. The basil chilie swai and the Ruby shrimp were excellent. We have recommended this Resturant to many friends.
Very noisy hard to hear - also warm but I love the food and the service is great
Everything from the appetizers to the main course was delicious! Definitely coming back here!
