Their lunch special is of great value - especially the pork/chicken/beef curry with potatoes. the same food for dinner (with a bigger portion) however may not be of great value. however the lunch special is of good value. the soup that comes with the lunch special is great too.

I miss living near this place. My roommate and I ate here at least twice a week. Now I take an hour commute train and bus to enjoy this great and interesting food!

I recently ordered from Mingala for the second time. I seem to have chosen better the first time, when I ordered a chicken curry dish. This time, I tried the Rangoon noodles, which were pretty plain with almost no duck but for a few pieces of fat), and the thousand layer bread, each bite of which probably had a thousand calories. The seafood dumpling soup, by contrast, was light and flavorful, and I would recommend it. The fried tofu appetizer looked more like sweet potato discs, but they were very tasty. The price point is great and I would definitely order from there again, but I'd probably steer clear of the carb-heavy options.

This place is pretty much Chinese/Thai fusion. There are no quality Burmese restaurants in NYC :( The best is in SF.

I traditionally order the A9 appetizer (Ngar Phai Kyaw) and Rangoon Night Market Noodles. I have never been disappointed in the quality nor portion size. Then the speed of delivery when I'm over 14 blocks away is phenomenally fantastic: 30 minutes from calling to order until the delivery guy is at my doorstep. Of course it may be because I'm a big tipper but I've given similarly sized tips to restaurants 4 blocks away who've taken up to an hour to deliver and with bad attitudes to boot. I've also tried a couple of other dishes from their menu and they are pretty good but the above two dishes are my favorites.

Burmese turns out to use a little bit of all the best ingredients from Southeast Asia. Similiar flavors to the gingery, piquant flavors of thai food (not the americanized creamy coconut flavors); lots of Fish sauce (nouc cham) of Vietnam; and stir-fry noodle dishes like Cambodia rolled into one. Lots of great spots on this menu. Remarkable young ginger salad, very delicious curried chicken, very nice but safe noodles with beef and ginger sauce. Thought the fishcakes as good as most thai places. Rangoon noodles not really that special. We will definitely go back. Service by owners. 2 men. speak limited english. Service is tolerable. But awesome value.

We have loved this place and the people within for many years! The food is absolutely delicious and the wait staff is very familiar and kind! After moving to NJ, I am left dreaming about going back and having another fantastic experience!
