If you want to taste some thing different in Asian food, this is the place to explore. to start with one can try Samosa Soup which is made of Samosa with lentil, cabbage, falafel and onions. If you love salad, try Tea Leaf salad. It comes with Burmese tea leaves, sesame seeds, jalapene pepper, tomotos and dried shrimps as optional.Rangoon chicken curry comes with beans. Salmon lemongrass fusion is must.

Excellent mix of Indian and Asian. The food is very flavorful, creative well-seasoned. There are very many options for every taste as well as vegetarians. Excellent service! Nice wine list.

Very nice place, conveniently located in Palo Alto downtown. This was the first time I've tried burmese food and my overall impression was extremely positive. Tasty and fresh dishes, absolutely worth the price I've paid. I'll come back soon ! My advice is to reserve a table, even during the week, because the restaurant is often full.

We went there Friday night. The place was packed. We liked the ambiance. May not be ideal for a romantic dinner but is perfect for a family trying to have a fun. Shrimp curry was awesome.

Unfortunately the exotic decor and background music do not make up for over-salting the food.

The liberal use of MSG in the kitchen gave this reviewer an immediate headache even before walking out the door.

I did not however see any warning about MSG use on the menu.
This is unforgiveable, especially for those of us who have an allergy to MSG?
