Yummy - Edit

Yellow beans and onions - vegan and delicious.
The waiter said that all of the vegetarian dishes are vegan.

Too much machine noise.

Pros: Flavor, Decor, Free Parking

Cons: Prices, Ambient Sound, No Music

Great authentic Burmese food - Edit

15 vegan entrees! Loads of salads that (with a request to leave out the fish sauce) are vegan and uniquely Burmese! Vegan desserts! A family owned spot with excellent food and service to match. Very authentic, delicious Burmese food. Pay them a visit, for sure!

Pros: So many options!, Great service

Cons: Remember to omit fish sauce!

A Burmese blessing! - Edit

Never tried Burmese food? It's a delightfully unique cuisine and Mandalay is the best establishment for Burmese food in the area -- by far. Start out with any of the salads (grated ginger, green papaya and black tea are our favorites) and then just pick anything off the vast menu for a tasty treat.

Pros: Consistently yummy food, Unique cuisine, Low-decibel enviroment

Love this restaurant - Edit

Their menu includes an entire page devoted to vegetarian dishes -- and all of them vegan. Two out of the three desserts are also vegan. It is absolutely a destination spot for us. The service is fast and wonderful. The food is excellent.

I've never had anything like it - Edit

...and I mean that in a good way. I agree with the reviewer who said that the food is a cross between Thai and Indian: Indian-style onion-based curry sauces with Thai spices, samosas that vaguely resemble spring rolls, etc. I really like the food here (try the tofu with sour mustard), the prices are good, and I've never had any problems with the service like the ones mentioned by the other reviewers.

Pros: good food, good prices, nothing else like it

Cons: closed mid-afternoons, not 100% veg., so I can't give 5 cows

good food /poor service - Edit

the food is great, but be sure to ask for it without fish sauce. i always feel like when i go here their goal is to get my money then get me out. many time i have been "suggested" new items, and when they show up on the bill, the price was sky high. once i was told to try the vegan ice cream--over $6 or some frozen coconut ice in a coconut shell!

Pros: good food

Cons: becareful of fish sauce, customer service, expensive
