Stopped by for lunch around noon on a weekday. The place was pretty full, but still had a couple free tables so was able to avoid sitting at the bar. Decided to go with one of the daily specials, the red curry with salad, adding an order of the platha bread with dipping sauce (basically a sweet coconut milk chicken curry). The red curry was excellent - super tender chunks of beef with potatoes in a super tasty savory curry sauce. It was served with a large mound of fluffy white rice - we actually ran out of red curry and finished off the rice with the coconut milk curry sauce that came with the platha bread, which offered a nice sweat counterpoint to the red curry sauce. The accompanying salad was also very good and amply portioned too. Given the lunch crowd, the service was pretty good and reasonably fast. By the time we left, the place was packed and somewhat noisy, but can't complain as the food was so good,

Never had a bad meal here. Late-breaking review but it’s still true. Salads and curries and rice and whatever else. All delicious. Fresh and healthy ingredients. Cool, laid-back Cali vibes. Go forth and eat.

Went with a party of 4 and everyone had a different entree. Everyone was happy. The food was attractively presented and served in a timely manner. I am always satisfied with Burma Superstar.

The dishes are wonderfully flavorful and the ingredients seem very fresh. I love this place and take all of my visitors there to show off my neighborhood food joint! You have to be patient to wait in a long line!

The tea leaf salad is the best. Great curries, friendly staff, and craft cocktails. A bit noisy for conversation though. And you'll probably have to wait on line to get in.
