Everytime I visit San Francisco I always make it a point to eat at BURMA SUPERSTAR. It helps that my friends don't live to far, so we usually just walk from their place near 6th and California. The restaurant itself is quaint and only has around 12 tables in total. If you go right when they open, chances are you... More

The food (simusa and fiery tofu) was excellent, and the tea was even better! The service was also very good. Not much more to say.

Stopped here for lunch while sightseeing in SF. First thing is to get there early. There was a pretty long line, but we managed to get a big table for our group. The food was excellent, portions were pretty big and the service was outstanding. We ordered several different appetizers and entrees and everything was gone when we were finished.... More

One of the most delicious meals I ever ate. I ordered a dish with ramen noodles, cooked green leaves, chopped nuts, tofu, and it was completely delicious. The ginger lemon iced tea was scrumptious. Service was fast and they were crowded. Loved, loved, loved this place. Reasonable prices too. Highly recommended.

A delicious find at the most reasonable prices found for high quality and incredible taste!! Must try the fun drinks Burma Cooler and herbal tea. Then kick things up with the Tea Leaf Salad and Platha and Dip. And, for the entrees try the Nan Pia Doc and Garlic Chili Shrimp! Enjoy!

Plan on waiting. They don't take reservations. They will text you when they're ready to seat you. We went across the street and down a bit to the Irish pub while we waited. The food is so worth the wait for seating! Service is good. We had the Vegetarian Samusa soup, eggplant and tofu curry and the Fiery Vegetables with... More

Large soup bowls and generous portions. The chili basil pork belly is delicious. Rose tea is lovely and good for sharing. Expect your clothes to smell like food.

On a chilly San Francisco winter day, there was no better place to eat lunch than at cozy, warm and welcoming Burma Superstar. We had to wait about ten minutes, but the carafes of hot, self-serve tea outside the door kept us plenty warm. So hard to choose our lunch due to the inviting looking dishes on the menu! While...

Ate here early afternoon. After a few minutes wait outside we were shown to our table. The tables are very close to each other. I did feel like I was having lunch with people on the adjacent tables! The food was very tasty. Plenty to eat and reasonably priced. Service was good. Would recommend.

Liked everything here - the waiting time to enter, the warmth of the service and the explanation of the ordered foods. The tea leaf salad was very good - crunchy with peanuts and other nuts and the green 'chutney' used to mix it. The samusas' were pretty average in terms of size and filling. In my opinion the Indian version... More
