As with their San Francisco location, the vegetarian options are good. However, I still rate Mandalay in San Francisco better for Burmese food. We had the platha and dip, and tea leaf salad as part of lunch #3. The dip was very liquidy so challenging to get the taste of the dip. The salad was very lettucy, whereas Mandalay leaves... More

Great Service and good food. Hard to be seated as it is so popular and busy but there is also seating available at a bar. Lunch specials also recommended. Mango chicken and garlic noodles good price break on special.

We had a very nice meal here. Started with the salt and pepper calamari and fab lotus chips. Then we had chicken kebat, tofu veg kebat, mango tofu and mango chicken. We ordered 2 serving of rice for the 4 of us which was the perfect amount. Great cocktails. Service was fine even though the place was packed. My only... More

We went there and the food was very superb. Vegetable samosa were fresh and hit. The Rainbow salad was BIG. The desert Coco Fritters was ot of ordinary. We would highly recommend this place.

We have eaten here three times, usually opting for their amazing salads. Recently had a stew with pumpkin that really hit the spot. People are right- it is noisy and crowded, but only because the food is that tasty! Don't miss it if you are in Alameda.

I love this place, and their food is uniquely extraordinary, particularly the many-ingredient salads and platha bread with dip. But over the past few years, like its twin restaurant on Clement Street in SF, it's become too small to serve a rapidly expanding clientele effectively. It used to be a go-to choice a couple times a month, but it's now... More

We like to come to Burma Superstar for dinner during the week. Weekends are crowded, but reservations can be called in or taken at the door if you are willing to wait. Unusual appetisers and fantastic salads. All of the entree items have been good. Next door to Tucker's Ice Cream.

the garlic noodles were my favorite. The basil chicken was also tasty. My boyfriend said the mango lassi was the best he ever had. Everything had amazing flavor. The service was super quick. We got here 530pm on a sunday and no line. By the time we left it was long.

Food was fine, sort of, except our order was wrong and our wait person didn't think so?!?. Now they are being sued (class action) by staff. I'm not eating there to pay their lawyers.

I've never had Burmese food before so wasn't sure what to expect. We went early on a Friday evening just before a basketball game and in order to avoid the rush. By 6 it was already starting to get busy so we we happy to sit at the bar. The service was surprisingly quick. Within 10 minutes we'd been served... More
