We are in the Palo Alto area at least twice yearly (visiting grandsons!) and almost always make a visit to Rangoon Ruby. If there is a high quality Burmese restaurant in NYC we have yet to find it and, having been in Burma/Myanmar three times,...More

I had two dishes, the tea leaf salad and an entree, both are ceremonially tosses in front of you by the waiter. Perhaps a nice ceremony, but the dishes simply did not have good enough flavors.

Really enjoyed our meal here - the service was great and make sure to do a reservation before hand as it is crowded. Loved their tea-leaf salad and mango chicken.

We went there Friday night. The place was packed. We liked the ambiance. May not be ideal for a romantic dinner but is perfect for a family trying to have a fun. Shrimp curry was awesome.

Unfortunately the exotic decor and background music do not make up for over-salting the food. The liberal use of MSG in the kitchen gave this reviewer an immediate headache even before walking out the door. I did not however see any warning about MSG use...More
