    Very cool atmosphere. Thousand layer bread and tea leaf salad are classic. Try the classic Myanmar dumplings! And enjoy the views of Yangoon ad Mandalay on the walls.

    The pickled tea leaf salad is a must. We also ordered the mango chicken which was delicious but not necessarily as unique as the tea leaf salad

    Like everyone says, GET THE 1,000 LAYER BREAD! The kauk swe is amazing. My mother is from Burma, so I grew up with this food and can vouch for its authenticity!

    the mohinga (fish broth noodle) is absolutely perfect for a cold day. the staff are really sweet too (I think the boss must have refilled my water 5 times today).

    Burmese food isn't as popular as Thai or Indian, but it features a nice blend of the two. The pickled green tea leaf salad is a master class in flavors and textures.

    Green tea leaf salad - incredible mix of flavors and texture. Pass on the mango chicken - weirdly sour and not spicy as described.

    Thousand layer bread = a must. Green tea leaf salad and ginger salad = a taste sensation. Mango chicken = yum.

    The spicy basil chicken with coconut rice is almost as good as Burma Superstar in San Francisco.

    Love child of Chinese take-out and middling Thai. Don't pee on my leg and tell me that's how they do it in Burma. Best avoided.

    Tea leaf salad is great (but they really need to leave out the lettuce).

    What happened? The old place was spicy and authentic. Now it is bland and Americanized. Yuck!
