Bringing the flavors of Burma to the Bay Area and Beyond

Known for its bustling tables and legendary wait times, the Burma Superstar has become a Bay Area institution. Established in 1992, Burma Superstar introduced the bold flavors of Burma (Myanmar) to the Bay Area and beyond. With influences from neighboring India and China, as well as Thailand and Laos, Burmese food is a unique blend of flavors, and Burma Superstar includes such stand-out dishes as the iconic Tea Leaf Salad, Platha (a buttery layered flatbread), and Mohinga, a rice noodle soup served in a savory fish broth that is arguably Myanmar’s national dish.

Burma Superstar is a neighborhood family restaurant in the Burma portfolio. The undeniable popularity drawn from our sister restaurant, the original Burma Superstar on Clement Street in San Francisco’s Richmond District, gave us the opportunity to bring the flavors of Burma to the East Bay. We opened the doors to Burma Superstar in Alameda first, and our Oakland outpost followed soon after.

For more than two decades, the long queues continue as Burma Superstar strives to set and uphold the highest standards of Burmese culinary excellence and cultural diversity. Through the expansion of our restaurants, cookbook, workshops, community investment, and consumer food products, our greater mission of bringing Burmese food and culture to world prominence continues to grow.
