Lots of competition on this street (Laurel, San Carlos)......used to be quite crowded but has thinned out lately....Burmese/Thai food is tasty and different....portion size adequate for two....friendly service. Love their pad thai and mango chicken.

Great service and food didn't disappoint. We ventured into some new menu items, which were absolutely delish. Will be returning soon

Met with friends for dinner and had a really nice time. The waiter was really nice about making sure that the spice levels of our dishes were to our satisfaction and everything was great. My favorite is the Sesame beef but you have to try the Samosas as well!

Good, interesting food. Good, attentive service. Many food choices. A little heavy on oil. Nonalcoholic drinks cost too much. Looking forward to trying salads next time. Curried eggplant was divine. Rice was a little mushy.

The fermented tea leaf salad was unique and nothing I would have ordered if it hadn't been recommended by a local merchant. The salad was a very tasty vegetarian option, and even if you're not vegetarian, still good.
I know that samosas are deep fried since they are one of my favorite bites and I have them often, nevertheless, these were too oily for my liking and the stuffing was a bit bland. Some might prefer a faint taste of curry, but I prefer a bolder curry taste.
It was quite loud when I was there at 5:30pm because of a large gathering of people at one table behind us, but nothing too disruptive.
Our server did a good job helping us order according to our dietary restrictions.
All in all, a very nice dinner.

We went to this restaurant to celebrate my sons birthday. My husband had seen a review for this restaurant on "Check Please". It received high marks for their food. We were so glad we tried this place. the food was terrific. We have never been to a Burmese restaurant before and we were not disappointed. We will definitely go back. We had the Sesame Beef, sooooo goood. the string beans very good and the Tofu Beef dish, spicy but was enjoyed.
The service was very good. Our waiter very attentive.

The staff members are attentive and pleasant. Our waiter helped with recommendations that were right on for our tastes. The tea lead salad is a must try when visiting. The coconut ice cream is delicious. There isn't a full bar, but a great selection if wine and beer.

Great neighborhood restaurant. Food is always good. San Carlos restaurant is small so you tend to feel cramped.

The service and food were very good. Appetizers, entrees and a couple desserts averaged about $50+ a plate for five persons. Slightly expensive for what we got, but again it was a very nice meal.

This restaurant is our new favorite! Because we spend a significant amount of time in Manhattan, where even most food carts are amazing, it's hard to get us excited about local fare. But, the rice salad alone has us hooked.

Didn't know Burmese food was so tasty! The tea leaves salad and the tofu appetizer are a must have! Even the samosa soup was delicious. Totally worth the drive from Cupertino.

Food was great as always, however, I think they may have been understaffed as service was slow. They usually have top notch service, but had to ask twice for water refills and they didn't give us new plates after the Tea Leaf Salad, before our entrees came, which they usually do. Hopefully, this is a one time thing as it was somewhat disappointing.

Rangoon Ruby has a great menu and a friendly staff. I enjoy eating there whenever I get the chance. I recommend the garlic noodles, pumpkin stew, and tea leaf salad. Bring a friend and don't forget to order friend banana for dessert.

Excellent food with a wide variety of choices available at several levels of spiciness. Although the restaurant was not at all crowded, the service level was a bit amiss (refills of water required more than one request). And despite a specific reference to the occasion being a birthday, nothing special was offered, including anything from the staff.

It was my wife and I's 27th wedding anniversary and the hottest sept 1st in bay area history.When my wife called to make reservations she specifically asked if they had air conditionioning and the hostess said they did but it was running on low(?).As we walked up to the restaurant we noticed all the windows were open(not a good sign).The food was very good but it was so damn hot without any hint of air conditioning that it was too uncomfortable to fully enjoy our food.My wife started feeling faint so we ended up taking the rest of our food home.It will be an anniversary dinner we will never forget!

The tea leaf salad is a 10 and not to be missed. We also had the eggplant with shrimp that was excellent as was the vegetable pad Thai. The only disappointing dish was the jalapeño chicken. It had no sauce and we thought it a little dry. We usually go in Palo Alto which has more buzz, but for a quieter, more relaxing dinner with the same food, go to San Carlos.
