This was my third visit to Burma Superstar on Telegraph Ave. in Oakland and I loved it just like I did my first visit! Friendly staff, excellent service (fast, too) and the most yummy food! Tea Leaf Salad!

You can have tea leaves in your hot tea or more in demand, in the Burma Superstar Tea Leaf salad ! At first, I thought the jalapeno peppers would be too spicy but after they were blended into this salad melange, oh, what a treat! This salad is pretty famous at this restaurant so whatever else you order, don't forget... More

We were passing through Oakland and stopped to have dinner with a friend. She said this place was a must and she was so right! We waited close to an hour after being told it would be 25 minutes, and while I was starting to go crazy it certainly ended up being worth the wait. It's a small, vibrant setting... More

This food was was way out of my comfort zone. I was so glad. We started with the appetizers and moved onto the Coconut rice; which has a sweet taste but the sprinkle of onions made it so delectable. We then went onto the Tea Salad (pictured). The waiter came to the table and gave a description of the salad.... More

We dined at Burma Superstar recently. We both thought the food was good, as was the service ... however, I thought for lunch, they were a bit pricey. The restaurant itself is narrow, and because of the acoustics, the place is noisy.

I love this place. The Tea Leaf Salad is my favorite. I also love vegetable curry and coconut rice. The service has always been good and they have a full bar too!

The food was good. The tea leaf salad was unqiue and delicious. We all got an item off the lunch menu, and nothing was very special. Everything seemed to lack depth of flavor.

This place is amzing! They have great service and gave some pretty amazing beverages. Like I recommend the lemonade that is served with mint and has a nice flavor. And I recommend ordering a little bit of everything if it is your first time going just to get a feel of the cuisine!

Very fun place, always crowded so expect a slight delay to get in, then enjoy the unique, new flavors you can experience. Plenty of new dishes to try and at least some will be beyond your current flavor profile - go for it as almost everything we have had is well balanced with complementary spices and flavors. It is noisy... More
