  • Dont miss the meltingly delicious chick-pea tofu, the fascinating tea-leaf salad, and the bracing chick-pea soup. Inexpensive and fun.
  • Ask for the separate vegetarian menu.
  • Try the chicken noodle soup!
  • Cool little Burmese place. Pretty cheap and very good. The Assorted Noodles make a great lunch!
  • Customer service could be improved. When someone cannot take a bite of a supposedly non-spicy dish because it's too hot, either re-make it or offer to take it off the bill.
  • The tea salad is excellent, such a great combination of ingredients and flavors. Try the hot Rangoon tea and the spicy rainbow 23 noodles.
  • The chicken potato dish will leave you thinking about it afterward. Get the balachaung side (dried shrimp/onion/chili condiment) to sprinkle over your dishes & up the spice level.
  • Apparently Mayanmar/Burmese is served lukewarm. If you want it differently ask while ordering.
  • Definitely not a good as it was when it first opened about 7 years ago!
  • Very good food. I recommend the spicy noodle soup
  • The food is amazing. The ginger salad has some amazing flavor a
  • Tea salad hands down
  • The Tea Leaf Salad is light to eat, but it packs a real punch of flavor. Definitely will come here again!
  • Try the Limeade!
  • We all about the free. YoMa has free jasmine rice refills and complimentary palm sugars!
  • You must try this place. I never thought Burmese food was so good. Simple menu and comfortable place. If you like chinese food, this is even better.
  • Already has opened on wednesday ^^ awesome
  • Get the tea salad. Make it spicy to suit your taste.
  • Tea salad along with a Burmese limeaid serves as my go to.
  • Try a noodle dish for $6.95 or get one of their specials which start at $7.95. They home make their tofu out of chickpea flour, which gives it a creamier soft flavor. Burmese know how to cook.
