The food is always great and there is a wide variety to choose from. The staff is always pleasant and attentive and the owner even remembers the dishes you enjoy. Try the Jasmine Tea and watch it bloom.

We waited a long time outside to be seated and I can't say that the wait was worth it. The food was good but not delicious. The service was rushed and we felt that we were being hurried along in our dining. After the long wait outside, we would have liked to have had a relaxed experience.

My friends and I have been going here for 20 years but have moved out of the area so we only get to go every few years. it's always been amazing. just had a very disappointing meal the other night. no spice, limited flavor. i don't think we'll even go back again which is sad.

Recommended by friends, I am glad I took their advice. The lemon ginger beer was fantastic and fit the food well as it wasn't too sweet and left a fresh bitter aftertaste with every sip. Came back two days later and had the ice tea aka Virgin mojito which was too sweet for my taste. From the food my favourite... More

This is definitely a go-to restaurant for me! The food is wonderful, the decor is beautiful and the service is great! The food is at least equal to Burma Super Star but the lines are shorter and the service is better!

We had a lovely evening with 5 friends. We shared several plates so everyone could have a taste of everything. The food wash fresh and very good and there was a lot of choice. The staff was very friendly. Some of the plates were shown at the table and then got mixed by the waiter.

I really enjoyed the Green Tea Salad and the Papaya salad. The Lamb curry was outstanding too. One of our group is allergic to citrus and the staff was very accommodating and careful to ensure that lemon was not on her dishes something that us rather difficult witness Burmese cooking.

Mandalay continues to satisfy without being trendy. Favorite starters continue to be the Rainbow or the Mango salads coupled with the Burmese Chin Hin Yee or the Chinese Hot and Sour soups. Follow on with the Mandalay Beef or the Pumpkin Curry Chicken. The dinner line, no reservations, on Fridays and Saturdays is still a bit lengthy, but weekday nights... More
