Everything I have had here is excellent! Saffron rice, pumpkin yellow chicken and coconut chicken soup are must order items. The flavors are really complex in everything and it seems to be very authentic. Very popular place, Try and make reservations. Takeout is always high...More

The tea leaf salad is a colorful presentation and they mix it for you before you can have a taste of Burma. If Burmese isn't your thing, they also have Chinese. There are vegetarian dishes too.

This is my first review ever but I was so discussed by the food and disappointed by the service that I felt convicted to say something. My husband and I were very excited to try this restaurant as two friends recommended it as very good!...More

We eat here regularly and this is the second year we have had Christmas Eve dinner here. They don’t take reservations and you can’t be seated until your entire party is present. The food is consistently excellent, service is great, you can’t go wrong here....More

We’ve enjoyed Mingalaba since it opened. Get there early! It fills up quickly. Delicious Burmese food and if you’re not a fan....Chinese fare also!

Excellent preparation of dishes and an extensive menu from which to choose. Consistency and quality of ingredients are what sets this apart from the other Burmese restaurant in town. Prepare to wait in line, but it’s worth it for a meal of memorable flavors and...More

Food was better than expected. Service was ok due to a busy evening. I would definitely go back when I am in town.

Lovely evening in Burlingame! Our food was delicious and the service was great. We didn't feel rushed at all even though it was very busy. It is small but the noise level is very acceptable. Don't miss the tea leaf salad!

I think they're $8 to $12 per dish, pretty generous which encourages sharing.

I would think so as I believe rice is gluten free, and they use chickpea flour in their falafel ball soup. You'd have to check ~ Usually asian food is fairly easily navigated ~
