Lovely evening on the patio at this restaurant! We live nearby and love ethnic food but never tried this one on 4th Street. It might be my new favorite! We loved the tea leaves salad and clear rolls and paratha bread for starters. Curry shrimp...More

We were lucky to walk in and be seated at the last available table. This is a tiny place, with maybe 6-8 tables. Nothing fancy- more like eating in someone's home. The three of us shared the Tea Leaves Salad, Chicken Coconut Curry, and Coconut...More

I eat here whenever I come to Bloomington. Sometimes I drive down from Indianapolis just to have lunch here. Love the satay and samosas. Love, love, LOVE the chicken and potato curry! Fascinating blend of Thai and Indian spices. Love it!

Burma Garden is a small restaurant with good simple food and friendly (and quick!) service. The buttered paratha was delicious although it was different from the paratha found in Indian restaurants. I also recommend the eggplant curry, the mango smoothie, and the rice pudding.

Not inexpensive, but excellent. Real Burmese and the proprietor will make recommendations if you ask and tailor each dish to your specific wish. Highly recommended.

This is a small restaurant. It is comfortable. The business is in what used to be a house on a street with similar restaurants (Thai, Korean, Indian, Burmese). The service is good and the food is excellent. One thing that is nice is that with...More
