We visited Mandalay at the recommendation of friends who consider it to be better than Burma Superstar. Our sense is that both are equally good experiences. Mandalay has a better ambience and decor. We would recommend the mango salad and also at least one order...More

We loved all the food at Mandalay. My son's girlfriend recommended this restaurant in her neighborhood and it didn't disappoint. Attentive service and fresh food. Very busy on a Friday which is a testament to their reputation.
