Company Description

A Philadelphia Chinatown staple, Rangoon has offered traditional Burmese dishes for over two decades. Favorites like the tea leaf salad and house-made Thousand Layer bread have been tingling adventurous tastebuds since they opened their doors in 1993.

Nicely combined flavors. Lentil fritters were one of the favorites. Beef curry and farlooda too. Surely a place to visit often.

The shrimp lemongrass soup was phenomenal, spicy and sour and the plethora of subtle flavors that make up Burmese cuisine. The thousand layer bread with potato curry was out of this world. Unfortunately the staff was horribly awkward and inattentive to the point that I was the only person in the restaurant with at least 3 servers and had to wait 15 minutes to get someone's attention

You've got to try their thousand layer bread, delicious salads, and sweet rice with mango. It was all great, and the service was fantastic. I'll be back next time I'm in Philadelphia!

A family member who is currently living in Myanmar wanted us to try this Burmese restaraunt so we could experience the food that she eats. The initial service was a bit slow, but the employees were extremely friendly and welcoming. They enjoyed speaking with our relative in Burmese. None of the eight of us had anything negative to say about the food - it was all very good. Thousand layer bread is great, but I failed to ask them why it is called thousand layer. It's quite thin. I had Pagan Beef that I really enjoyed.

We got 7 dishes. I didn't like the Burmese dumpings, but I didn't realize they were deep-fried. Everything else was incredible. Friendly service and reasonable prices.

Amazing food. The lady who owns this place is so friendly too. She's always like "thank you so much for visiting!!!" Some of the dishes are best to eat there thank to take out, like their Burmese Inlay Fish. The fish is fried and then topped with sweet chili sauce, so it gets a little soggy if you don't eat it right away. Still good though. We also love the string bean salad. A bit pricier than other places in Chinatown, but I think it's worth it. Oh, and the food is best eaten family style. Get a bunch of dishes and share. Otherwise you'll just be eating rice and a whole bunch of chicken or something.
