We were staying in Richmond and after arriving late were wandering along Bridge Road around 9pm trying to find somewhere for dinner. There was a bit of a crowd in the Burmese House so we thought that was a promising sign - and we were not disappointed! The decor is not flash, but the staff were friendly, we were served... More

Food here is exactly what I would have back home in Myanmar (Burma). The staff seem to be all from Myanmar, and they are very professional and lovely. The food has not been fushionised like most of the asian restaurants in Australia, but they give the customers a choice of the level of spices they put in, so people are... More

I have been to The Burmese House many times including with my Burmese mother and relatives. Food is authentic.and service is always quick, respectful and attentive. Unfortunately when I invited my friends to try Burmese I was let down. Although the service and food available was still of a high, tasty standard there were many items on the menu we... More

We were really looking forward to enjoying a "banquet" at Burmese House with a group of friends. It seems they either don't do banquets very well, or can't cope with groups. It was woeful. Very. And expensive. Very. What a pity - I'd thought it would be worth lending them our support. However, we shan't be back there.

Went for dinner Saturday night, you can tell how good this place is by the number of people already there when we got there, consequently we were seated upstairs but still very pleasant. Attentive service and delicious food make this well worth a visit.

Arrived late as they were looking to close and was still welcomed in. Asked them to surprise me and was presented with a wonderful fish curry.

Nice meal, the Chicken Cashew stir fry was by far the best meal, overall the food and service was very good. I can recommend this restaurant.

I dined here with a friend after reading the positive reviews. We were both disappointed. There was little to choose from in the entree selection so we settled on the marrow fritters which were quite ordinary. We shared a fish curry and chilli calamari. Both mains were uninspired, no fresh flavours and not a vegetable in sight. The tea salad... More
