My wife and I were looking for something new when we discovered this place. We are so glad we went and will definitely be back. We had the: Fried Samosas Appetizer- Deep fried, potato filled, perfectly bite-sized. Great start. Garlic Noodles- Lots of garlic and lots of noodles. Not too spicy and not too wimpy. Chicken Coconut Soup- Absolutely delicious.... More

I love interesting cuisine, and this was the first time I tried Burmese. I have lived in India and visited Thailand nine times in the past two years. The food here is well made. Order the tea leaf salad, a national dish (does contain peanuts). The goat curry has good flavor as well. My wife's coconut noodle soup was also... More

I have had Burmese food but this was as if they are out to give Burmese food a bad name. All the dishes were over salted and over spiced - like really flaming HOT! The chicken dish had huge chunky bone peices and made in thick oil with hardly any chicken meat. The shrimp was cooked with the skin on... More

Not the best Burmese food. but it is OK for non Burmese. Very small space. Prices are resonable.
