I went with three people. The waitstaff and manager were very friendly, funny, courteous. We ordered the assorted appetizer's delight, good for two people to share, the lentil fritters were my favourite, dipped in the sauce :) mmm! The fried tofu was a pleasant surprise- very tasty! The mango salad was excellent! We had Ginger chicken, pineapple chicken and Mandalay Flying Prawn. The ginger chicken was good, they added tamarind to it at my request, lots of veges. The pineapple was interesting, takes some getting used to. The mandalay shrimp was really good, potatoes were nice and soaked in the sauce. The green tea ice cream was ok, I'm not a fan of it, but my company liked it. The thousand layer cake(which is in their in store menu) is not really 'cake'. It was more like roti soaked in milk, which was good! think it is an aquired taste though. You should feel free to explore their menu, there's alot of choices, but none are overwhelming, and you get nice little surprises in the blending of ingredients. Take something with tamarind!

I take out around twice a week. The night market noodles are worth a peak. I'm no hipster, but not a geek --and the vibe here isn't very sleak. Or politically correct. I believe "Myanmarian" would be the up-to-date classification. Regardless, they could use a little more chicken/meat in their dishes. Too many vegables. But overall, this place is pretty sweet.

We've eaten here a few times in the last year and feel that the other reviews hit the nail on the head. The food is good, the prices are excellent and the take-out is always very quick to arrive. However, one of the waiters hardly utters a word - let alone a pleasantry - and the others seem a little timid to engage in conversation. The atmosphere has improved recently as the lighting has been dimmed but perhaps a little too much. All in all it's well worth a visit but don't expect to be treated like a long lost friend.

The food is scumptious. OUR WATER CUPS WERE NEVER EMPTY. CONSTANT POURING! AWESOME! Joshua ordered the Basil Chicken, delectable. Ben L. ordered the mango beef, pungent and poignent. Ben S. ordered the pineapple chicken, pineapple-rific. We also ordered a classic Myran Mar dumplings. Frankly tasted like wantan soup. Nothing special. The other dishes really blew our minds. We were not expecting much and were met with high class service at a low budget cost. This evening will forever be burned in my memory as the night I discovered BURMESE FOOD!

I've tried quite a number of the dishes and have found them quite flavorful although I'm not too thrilled with their curries as they are too different from the SouthEast Asian ones I prefer. My favorites are the Rangoon Night Market Noodles and the FishCake appetizer. Whenever I have actually dropped by for dinner, they have been gracious and their delivery service is pretty quick considering I live over 20 blocks away.

Excellent food and service. Soon as you walk in its a great atmosphere. If you want great food and value. Try it.

Initially we thought it was going to be great and left slightly disappointed. Satay was skimpy, ginger salad was unbearably salty (barely had more than a few bites), spring rolls were average but the pineapple chicken was very good and so was the coconut rice. The thousand layer bread was also nice, sort of like a greaser version of nan bread. The service was ackward to the point we were uncomfortable. Very grumpy waiter, never said one pleasantry back to us. This place seems like the ideal take out but strange experience with the wait staff. Not sure if it was a lanuagae barrier or they just were having a bad night. Two additional points were the decor, we enjoyed the thoughtful murals and the price was reasonable.
