I've been here twice at this location and each time there was always something wrong.

First time was a takeout order. Bestest only live one freaking block away from this restaurant, but we wanted to take the food and eat in our own comfort living room.

Strike 1!

Skimpy portion of fiery chicken that was supposed to feed 2-3 person. More like one! Ughhh!!!

Strike 2!

Garlic noodles that came in the smallest to-go container?!?! Seriously inadequate portion and not even enough to feed one person.

Strike 3!

When my Bestest gives his bill, we never got our changes back until we had to ask three different waiters. On top of that, they didn't even bring back the right amount. Aiyah!

Don't think we will frequent this place even if it's a block away from our place. I actually prefer Royal Ragoon better. Kthanksbye!

Burma Superstar is great. The food is worth the wait and you will always have to wait.

We had tried to go to Burma Superstar in SF but the line was always too long. They don't take reservations, but you can call 15 mins before you arrive and they will add you to the list. The space is trendy and fun, with d lighting and mirrored walls. The food was good, but not the best Burmese I'd ever had. Get the tea leaf salad, the flatbread with the curry dip, and the coconut rice for sure.

My goodness! Honestly some of the best food I've ever tasted! I went with friends and we shared and EVERYTHING was DELICIOUS! The place was packed, line out the door and we had to wait but totally worth it. I highly recommend the eggplant, like sweet velvet with the coconut rice and the incredibly addictive layered bread. MIND-BLOWING!

Noodles! The noodles were tender, not mushy. Perfect.
We arrived at 6pm on a Friday night and were seated immediately. The three of us had the far end of a long shared table. We all loved the tea leaf salad, which is really a chunchy peanut salad with an interesting tea leaf dressing. We also had garlic noodles with pork and tofu, and a shrimp dish. In the garlic noodle dish the sauces were good but I would have liked a bit more of the port and tofu. The shrimp in the other dish was perfectly cooked and arrived hot at the table. What I most loved was the desert which was a sort of yam fritter with excellent coconut ice cream. All that came at a really reasonable price in a place with a fun atmosphere in trendy Temescal. After dinner we walked up and down the street, enjoying a summer evening in Oakland. I would have like to see a few more vegetable dishes on the menu, since I'm not really a noodle person. But if you're a noodle person, this is the place for you!

There are several locations of this restaurant and I like this one much more than the one in SF. There is a wait, but it's nowhere near the craziness you'll surely encounter in the city.

Burmese food is really delicious, and this restaurant also serves Asian inspired cocktails! Be sure to order the famous fermented tea leaf salad and samusa soup. Prices are reasonable - expect to spend about $20 to $25 per person, excluding alcohol.
