First Burmese food experience and I loved it! Ordered the platha, b sprouts, sticky fingers, spicy duck skin fried rice and tea salad. My faves were the b sprouts, sticky fingers and the fried rice! Soooo goooddd!! Absolutely must haves in this place. Service was good, place was crowded but I still had a good time!

We have been here for several times before so were looking forward to going back. We called ahead and got on the wait list and Mark had a great table waiting for us and greeted us warmly: It took a while for the waitress to acknowledge us or even bring us water. We didn't get a hello, how r u,... More

The wait list for EAT'S, B Star's sister restaurant, was over flowing due to the Sunday farmer's market, so they referred us to B Star. We have frequently dined there but never considered them for breakfast or brunch. A nice surprise. Try the Longganisa Breakfast. Uniquely spiced sausages over sunny side up eggs and fried rice.

Short version: we were a big group, and the staff clearly doesn't know how to serve us. The restaurant was located in a sketchy neighbourhood. And you could get much better food down in Burlingame and elsewhere. Long version: Disorganized reservation system: Made a reservation for a party of 10 for 8:15. We called at 7:30 to confirm, and were... More

The place was extremely loud and busy, which in itself is not a problem, but apparently the kitchen was not able to handle the high demand. The fish my wife ordered, trout with mango slaw, was off (sour, spoiled smell). At least we did not have to pay for the dish. The other dishes were not really fresh either. Disappointing... More

From the south south bay We would drive far, Because we love it Burma Star. (Months later, I still crave a return visit. It was so delicious. Please open a branch down the penninsula so we can visit you more often.)

Promptly seated for evening reservation (yay!) but then we were overlooked and ignored for a good fifteen minutes before we hunted down a (very busy) server. Things improved from then on, as drinks and food appeared quickly. Every single bite we ate (three entrees, a rainbow salad, and some side vegs shared btw four of us) was *absolutely* delicious. The... More

This place is busy, so if you don't have a reservation, maybe show up early for lunch. The menu attracted us-we could see it was an ambitious Asian fusion type. We ordered the Asian Niceois salad and the white beans and pork. The tuna came seared (virtual sashimi) and the salad with a peanut sauce type dressing was good-edamame, bean... More

My friend had made a reservation and we are forever grateful that she did. We were seated once our party had arrived. Our server did not introduce herself, though she was training someone else since she had followed her every footstep. Once we were seated, we had only decided what to drink and get for appetizers. We told our server... More
