    Awesome, different and interesting

    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.

    Pure Goodness!

    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!

    Mostly awesome

    They have great food that reminds me of my cousin's (my family is from Burma). So the food is authentic, and very delicious. I just wish they would fix the phone line or go on seamless so I could order delivery from this place :/

    Best food for great price

    The food is addictive. This is my favorite place on the Upper East Side for lunch. Please check out this place. The night market noodles and the lemon chicken are two of my favorites. Plus the staff is great.

    Amazing food

    This restaurant is above average in all respects -- but above all else--the food is to die for. Try the Rangoon Night Market Noodles or the Mango Chicken. Keep the only Burmese restaurant in NYC alive and cookin'

    Love this place

    The food here is really great! I recommend the golden ruby shrimp, spicy papaya salad, curry chicken and mango chicken. I always get a combination of these. I am about to try their banana desert, which I have high expectations for. Love this place because when I get tired of the usual japanese, chinese, american or other cuisine this is a really great alternative. The people are very friendly and the food is not only different but very very tasty. I always order in, but I remember walking by this restaurant a few months ago. I wasnt necessarily impressed by the exterior decor but I cant speak to what it would look like inside because I have never been. But its all about the food, so try it! you will always come back for more, I do.
