Plan on waiting. They don't take reservations. They will text you when they're ready to seat you. We went across the street and down a bit to the Irish pub while we waited. The food is so worth the wait for seating! Service is good. We had the Vegetarian Samusa soup, eggplant and tofu curry and the Fiery Vegetables with... More

Large soup bowls and generous portions. The chili basil pork belly is delicious. Rose tea is lovely and good for sharing. Expect your clothes to smell like food.

On a chilly San Francisco winter day, there was no better place to eat lunch than at cozy, warm and welcoming Burma Superstar. We had to wait about ten minutes, but the carafes of hot, self-serve tea outside the door kept us plenty warm. So hard to choose our lunch due to the inviting looking dishes on the menu! While...

Ate here early afternoon. After a few minutes wait outside we were shown to our table. The tables are very close to each other. I did feel like I was having lunch with people on the adjacent tables! The food was very tasty. Plenty to eat and reasonably priced. Service was good. Would recommend.

Liked everything here - the waiting time to enter, the warmth of the service and the explanation of the ordered foods. The tea leaf salad was very good - crunchy with peanuts and other nuts and the green 'chutney' used to mix it. The samusas' were pretty average in terms of size and filling. In my opinion the Indian version... More

This is one of my favourite restaurants in the city. When I visited this place one year ago I was cautious. Honestly this restaurant is highly recommended!

First time in Burmese restaurant. Again the line outside tells you a lot. The food is just a new experience for me and being a big fan of Thai and Indian food, this was just like a mix of all the best flavour you can expect in Asian Cuisine. Please you must try this place. Totally unreal!

We happened across this restaurant after walking from the Golden Gate bridge. The food was fantastic, and the service was wonderful. Kind, quick, with helpful recommendations.

Thanks to other reviewers, we ate dinner here last night. Yes, parking is a problem and the wait is rough, but you have to eat here to understand all the fuss. The restaurant is small inside but the food comes quickly allowing for tables to turnaround to accommodate all the fans. My daughter and I shared the Tea Leaf salad... More
