The Worst  -- not Best -- of Burma, sadly. This restaurant just lost six loyal local customers. One-star review for pathetic value and shocking harassment! After getting back from picking up our take out order and seeing the smaller-than-usual portions, we called the restaurant to inform of our observation. The man who answered offered additional portions of food for us and to issue a cash refund, then asked for our phone number to call us back. Take a look at the attached photos of take out for brown rice $5 and tea leaf salad $15. The brown rice only fills 1/2 the take out box. The tea leaf salad only fills 2/3 of the take out box. More than an hour passed, and the owner, a woman who was not on-site at the restaurant, called back. She argued with us and raised her voice to us about our feedback on the portion sizing. We are local regulars and were taken aback with this harassment and disrespectful customer service! She even asked for us to send the photos (that are attached to this review) to prove our claims. We can't with this establishment any longer. Please go elsewhere!
The hours advertised on google for Sunday were till 930pm. That was the only reason we chose to eat at Best of Burma over Rangoon Ruby. When we reached the restaurant at around 820 in an empty restaurant, we were told the restaurant is closing soon, so to order soon. One in our group asked if they prefer we go elsewhere, the server thought for a moment before seating us. Maybe update your advertised hours to the hours you actually want to be open for! Another group came in "for here" and another "to go" after our orders were taken, and they were not said anything. (I checked the time stamp on the photo of tea leaf salad I uploaded, this was served at 835, so even if there kitchen was closing at 845, looks like we had placed our order well in time. A photo I took just as we were walking out was taken at 9.09.) Food was great. Excellent tea leaf salad. Very tasty vegetarian dishes.
So delicious! This is the rice noodles with chicken curry. I asked, the powder is bean powder! She mixed the noodles for me thoroughly in front of me :)
