Plan to wait in line or be one of the first when they open. Don't miss the tea leaf salad or the coconut rice. Big portions to share and unique Burmese flavors. Love this place!

Family gathering for my daughter's graduation and we had 3 generations of tastes to accommodate. Boy did this place shine! From ginger lemon tea to pork with pumpkin everyone was happy and full.

Confused why lines exist. Food is consistent. Good vegetarian options. Maybe better to head over to nearby spots. Great ice cream spots nearby.

Visiting here made me put Myanmar/Burma on my to-do travel list. The food was absolutely incredible. There were many favorites, pumpkin, coconut chicken, the Vietnamese coffee...... but the winner was the simple yet SO refreshing tea leaf salad. I couldn't recommend it enough

Great food. Usually a bit of a wait unless you get there as soon as it opens. Tea leaf salad and skillet shrimp are both delicious.

Love the Burma Superstar. The Tea Leaf Salad is fresh and amazing. Service is very good despite the full house. It tends to be busy with often a wait at peak times at the weekend. Highly recommended

This was my third visit to Burma Superstar on Telegraph Ave. in Oakland and I loved it just like I did my first visit! Friendly staff, excellent service (fast, too) and the most yummy food! Tea Leaf Salad!

You can have tea leaves in your hot tea or more in demand, in the Burma Superstar Tea Leaf salad ! At first, I thought the jalapeno peppers would be too spicy but after they were blended into this salad melange, oh, what a treat!...More

We were passing through Oakland and stopped to have dinner with a friend. She said this place was a must and she was so right! We waited close to an hour after being told it would be 25 minutes, and while I was starting to...More
