My ex-husband is from Burma. I know Burmese food. This is not Burmese food. Someone told me this restaurant is owned by people from Hong Kong. I'm not sure if that's true or not but the food is disgusting.

Very tasty food, special menu choices. Popular and trendy, expect to wait for a table. Vegetarian and vegan options. Coconut rice is tasty; it is also sweet, refined white rice. The sauteed eggplant will surprise. Friendly, engaged service. Check out the cookbook.

The food is absolutely out of this world! Ever bite has amazing flavor. We had the shrimp appetizer of course the tea leaf salad and the garlic noodles and the black rice pudding. We wanted to try every dessert on the menu! Must go!

Checked this place out looking for a replacement for the now closed Burmese restaurant on College Ave. Placed a phone order for pickup and was not disappointed.

Stopped by Burma Superstar for lunch on Saturday! It was such a great experience to taste their food again. Scrumptious tea salad accompanied with a delicious soup. Topped it off with their famous ice tea. Amazing.
