    Unique Noodles!

    Not only is this only is this one of the best deals in town it is the only Burmese restuarant any where near NYC. If you order the right dishes you will be delighted. The salads: Tea, Mango & Tomato are wonderful. The Coconut rice is perfect. The Rangoon Night Market noodles are just great. The Ginger Duck is very good. The staff are wonderful and very friendly. Really a very special place worth a trip!

    Amazing Food

    I almost walked out of this cheaply designed restaurant, but after we got the food I was very surprised.... I would recommend this place for take out and to order it extra spicy because their spice side dish is amazing! very under rated joint!

    Great UES Spot

    I could eat the chicken curry any day. In fact I probably eat it once a week. It is fantastic. All around the restaurant is a great mix of asian/south east asian/south asian fare that is always fresh, often light, and tons of flavor. The Mohinga is fantastic, best if ate at the restaurant. Highly recommended if you are in the UES.. Don't let the shabby front fool you, it is top notch food.

    My new favorite restaurant

    ...After a great deal of vacillating and deliberation, during which the waiter was very gracious, we decided to go with a sampler of appetizers. Jerri went with the soup, and a main course that I vaguely recall being some sort of fried vegetable. At this point, I was pretty sick of eating chicken and rice. I was ready to meat it up. I went with the beef curry, with a side of thousand-layer-bread, which sounded both delicious and intriguing. As the waiter walked away, on the spur of the moment, I decided I'd like to try the pineapple-fried-rice. Appetizers came. As we ate and dried out, the last vestiges of my anger over getting lost faded away. I ate the meat dishes- a shrimp spring roll, and two samosas full of keema (minced meat, beef in this case.) Interestingly, the small samosas were covered in a shell not unlike that of the spring-roll, rather than the traditional Indian pastry. It lent more of a crunchiness than the soft Indian pastry. I have to say I liked the Burmese version better. It was delicious, and the meat was spicy and soft, a great contrast to the crunchy texture and neutral taste of the shell.
