Love this little gem, just wish it was more spacious. It is always jammed! I crave the tea leaf salad and always order that but many of the vegetable dishes are top notch as well. The noodle dishes are not quite as tasty.

The title says it all. Get the tea leaf salad- it's yummy and unique. It's not large and usually crowded, so plan accordingly.

Very popular restaurant - best to get there during early hours, or you will have a wait. Great salads and appetizers.

We went late afternoon hoping there wasn't a crowd and we lucked out. Everything was so fresh and delicious and the salads are truly masterpieces. Love this place.

I went to Burma Superstar for lunch with a friend. I definitely enjoyed my food and th wait staff was friendly. I would probably go back but in the end I was a bit disappointed. The good: We shared the yellow bean tofu appetizer in garlic sauce and it was truly amazing. I would return for this item alone. The... More

Just another fabulous experience. Fresh & unique flavors you're unlikely to find anywhere else in the Bay Area other than the World famous original on Clement in San Francisco. This one is more modern yet still cozy tiny and with the same remarkable service. Salads & Curry's are my fav's. Had mango & Tea leaf but still looking forward to... More

I was taken here while on a visit to my daughter's who at the time lived in Alameda so this was a favorite of hers. And I wish I lived closer! We had a wonderful meal. We did have to wait a bit but it went quickly. We started with a spicy calamari dish which was very good and had... More

It's very rare for me to give five stars to a restaurant but this certainly deserves it. It's a small, crowded place and you will have to wait at least 15-20mins for a table but it is definitely worth the wait! All the dishes we tried were authentic, tasty and very well made. I've been to Burma and although this... More

you need to go early as it is very popular. Even with reservations you sign your name on a list and wait for a table in a very small restaurant. Once seated be prepared for a very unique and tasty feast. It is a very noisy high energy crowd so not a quiet romantic place but food is great. Much... More

Great food, very busy, closes between 3-5pm. If they hadn't closed at that tie I would have gone again during my stay.
