    Lamb is excellent, sour leaf is a must. Skip the tea leaf salad.

    Reserve ahead of time and plan for an hour of walking around or buying apps elsewhere. Things to get for 2 people w/leftovers: Samusa Soup, Tea Leaf Salad, Burmese Style Curry Lamb and Nan Pia Dok.

    Leave your name and cell at the counter and walk up the street to have a drink at one of the many bars on Clement. The time flies by and you won't be one of those chumps shivering on the street.

    Motherclucker, this place is good. Wait was short enough, and everything was amazing. Some of the best stuff I've had in my life, right off the appetizer list. Get a coconut!

    The wait time was twice as long as it took for us to eat. Food was good but didn't match high expectations. Sambusa soup and platha was better at b star cafe (their overflow restaurant)

    Still probably the best Samusa soup of the 6 Burmese places I've tried. Chicken Kebat is craveable and filled with flavor.

    As a white man I am often profiled and not served spicy food even when I request it. I can confirm that the chili lamb is indeed spicy. They don't hold back. Great place 👿

    The Lamb Curry is great, and the the Fermented Tea Leaf Salad is a winner. Wait times can be crazy, but an early dinner on a weeknight isn't out of the question. That is, unless you like waiting.
