    This was our second time going to Burma Love Downtown and we were excited to go again. The host were amazing as usual. Then it started getting weird. After sitting for about 20 minutes seeing everyone around us being serve by (Sever: Kay 156) the host from the front door asked us have we have we been served. We said no he took our order and said he will let our server no what we order and it will be there soon. We received our food, it wasn’t as good as the time before but it’s still was a dish I would eat every time I go there. By this time we still haven’t been acknowledged by (Server: Kay 156). After we finished eating, talking all that good stuff we sat another 15/20 minutes before I decided to go ask the host for Togo boxes and the check (I seen Server: Kay 156, talking to her co-workers) I went and sat back down the host from the front door brought our Togo boxes and check the a minute later guest who showed up Server: Kay 156 wanting to review our check. We were annoyed but we kindly packed out boxes, paid the bill and left a nice tip. But if you are a person of color and dining for two Pleases stay away from (Server: Kay 156) section she will make your experience thinking bad of this amazing restaurant and the hospitality like the other times we came before.

    Excellent service. Requested out door table but realized smell of smoking pot drifting in as we start dining. So asked to be moved to indoor and the staff was so helpful to find good table for us in their busy time. Delicious healthy food and drinks. We will definitely come back!

    It is a beautiful venue and the food is good. The service needs to be stepped up a bit. Customers assume. When someone takes their order that that person will follow thru. Not the case. But I do plan to return. This is the best place near Golden Gate Theater

    I have always loved Burma Love. I loved them when they were still Burma Club and I still love them when they renamed their restaurant to Burma Love. I always bring people here because it is my favorite Burmese restaurant and always rave about the service & how great the food is! As always, food was great and wonderful! I ordered something new and different. The food didn’t take too long and it was out quick. - Superstar Shrimp: best paired with rice and it has a tiny kick with it. - Pea Shoots: it’s always good to have greens and it’s a good choice for us. - Rainbow Salad: need i say more? it’s forever going to my favorite but this time, it needed a little more sauce. - Chicken Wings: crunchy and surprisingly well balanced - Fried Banana Ice Cream: this is new to the menu and was super excited to try it but the banana was way too tiny. I felt it was too small to share. the vanilla bean ice cream was definitely good. - Black Pudding: my go to dessert, always good. i used the ice cream from the banana ice cream for this one because it is always good to have ice cream on top of the black pudding. - Pumpkin Pork Stew: this one was a hit or miss. sadly, it was a miss. i had expected a stew and it was more of a squash watered down soup. i could have skipped it.

    Delicious food. Loved the Ti salad and enjoyed the pork belly with mustard greens, though admit these were not especially visible in the dish. The portions were generous. I enjoyed the Kipling's Elixir cocktail, though there was some confusion in their QR code Happy Hour menus, which has different items depending on whether it is for the Burma Love Valencia vs Burma Love Downtown. Look forward to future visits.

    Everything was delicious! Got the minced chicken with fresh mint, spicy noodles, and Burmese milk tea. Highly recommend the minced chicken, super flavorful. The spicy noodles are also very tasty, but if you are not a fan of biting into big strips of onion, then maybe order a different dish (or be weird like me and pull the onions out/eat around them). Sat outside for weekday lunch; they were not too busy/loud, had partial shade, overall a lovely experience.

    This place is great. The food is amazing, drinks are tasty, and they have a great staff. Someone suggested the restaurant, and I was a bit skeptical because I was not familiar with Burmese food. I’m so happy we went. This visit was actually my second visit there during the conference. I highly recommend it.
