While you can easily find Chinese, Thai or Japanese restaurants, this is the one that is dedicated to Burmese food. Tucked away in one of the bylanes of Kala Ghoda the restaurant is a beautiful space with dark wooden furniture, brightly coloured umbrellas forming a canopy on the ceiling and small Burmese artefacts to decorate the space. The catch here is that the entire menu is vegetarian and dishes can even be made Jain on request. Popular dishes include their 'Khow Suey', a meal without it seems almost incomplete here, 'Samosa Soup' and the 'Steamed Buns'. If you are a tea connoisseur then you will enjoy their extensive collection.
I would've not visited Burma Burma because I prefer to eat non vegetarian food when I eat out(or otherwise too 😁). I won a contest held by lbb and a voucher for Burma Burma was the prize. Mock meat vegan buns. I kid you not, this dish tasted like sorpotel (pork meat dish) It's slightly sweet but very well made. Samosa soup. The soup itself was flavourful but the samosas don't really add much to it. Mushroom Trio: three type of mushrooms stir fried. I did not like the chewiness of 2 type of mushrooms. However the dry gravy was very good and if they had chicken instead of mushrooms I would've gobbled it all up. Khousuey: I haven't eaten enough Burmese food to judge if what I ate was authentic or not. But the dish itself was very tasty, especially the coconut curry. They claimed the noodles in the curry were wheat noodles but they felt like rice or maida noodles. I've eaten better quality noodles and considering how expensive each dish here is, I was expecting better quality noodles. nice cutlery, clean washrooms, good ambience But the music played doesn't go well with the ambience. Verdict: expensive but good food. would not recommend if you prefer non vegetarian food The service was quick and the staff is very courteous and prompt.
This is a great place to enjoy vegetarian food Burmese style. I lost my bill which had the dishes we ordered though must say everything was perfect..especially their version of Cowswey( I think my spelling is incorrect) Our server was excellent very attentive though again his name was on my bill.. service was very good..a must in Mumbai for even meat lovers..
Burma Burma has been on my wish list which I fullfilled on 27.03.19 by going solo for veg lunch. Understand Burmese cuisine is mostly known for seafood but it seems Burma Burma in Mumbai opted to go with 'Only Veg & No drinks' tag. They have proved themselves over the period of time for their quality food and good service. It's a survival of the bestest. Confidence matters when one is sure of serving good authentic veg food in the completive restaurant business with many options of non-veg and liquor thrown at guests. Burmese cuisine has been influenced by Chinese, Indian and Thai cuisine. So Burmese cuisine is 'Belpuri' of above three cuisines put together ! Burmese cuisine also known for varieties of salads like starches like rice, wheat and rice noodles. Now enough of Wikipedia on Burmese cuisine and let me get back to my eating business....lol I have settled down in front of one of the tables after appreciating the pleasant 'wow' ambience. Classic instrumental music playing on the background made the place more presentable. Confused with the name of dishes and what to order from menu, I asked the server to suggest the rice based dish to go with coconut milk based curry. Thamin Kyaw ( Burmese fried rice ) and Oh No Kala Hin ( vegetables cooked in creamy coconut milk with red chilli and tamarind ) served really fast by courteous staff. Enjoyed both the dishes and also realised Burmese cuisines and Indian cuisines are interrelated when it comes to preparation and taste ! Burma Burma, thank you ( kyaayyjuutainpartaal ) for the nice dinning experience.
If you are a vegetarian, I'm sure you'd have got tired of eating the same old Naan-subzi, pulao et al.. To these people, I'd recommend hit Burma Burma! A vegetarian only restaurant offering a variety of Burmese food. The ambience is cozy and the food tastes excellent and is a welcome change to the palate. I'd say try out their community meal to taste a variety of dishes at one go! The place is usually full and you could expect a waiting time of 20-30 minutes.. So head there early, before 8 to secure a table without much ado. Only disappointment was the slow service. Meals took forever to arrive. If they could manage that, I'd say this is one restaurant you can always return to!
Visited the restaurant for lunch with friends after we had it recommended to us. All of the food was great, we especially enjoyed trying Burma's national dish, Mohingar (a fish and noddle curry-like soup) and the Khow Suey. There was a great selection of teas to drink as well. Highly recommend to anyone visiting Mumbai's Colaba district.
Though Burma is a neighbouring country its cuisine is still untapped in India. You will not find any restaurants dedicated to this wonderful cuisine but Mumbai has manged to steal the thunder with its only Burmese restaurant by the name of ‘Burma Burma’. This enchanting little place is unique in every sense of the word. Located at Fort, South Mumbai, the restaurant is one of its kind focusing entirely on Burmese culture. The décor is absolutely adorable reflecting the nuance of Burmese culture in every facet of the room. Rustic beauty of the room is uplifted by the colourful pieces of art belonging to the country. Colourful umbrellas hangs from the ceiling and a whole wall is dedicated to the charming pottery pieces. Open kitchen at one end is flanked by the high chairs to encourage lone diners to enjoy the chef’s skills up close. The whole atmosphere of the restaurant is warm and beckoning.
Though the Burmese cuisine leans heavily on the carnivorous side Burma Burma is one hundred percent vegetarian. How they achieve that is just short of miraculous considering their food. The restaurant owes its popularity to the awesome food and charming décor but it’s more than that. They have managed to capture the essence of the Burmese culture and unveiled it in South Mumbai. Colourful food comes you wrapped delicately in banana leaves and often is paired with traditional Burmese tea. As an amuse bouche sip on their samuzahincho soup or kaffir lime cooler mocktail. The wonderfully fresh flavours will create havoc on your tongue. For starters move onto budhikyaw bottle gourd fries, mopisalai rice dumplings, mandalaylaphetthoke, samosa soup, tohu with exotic vegetables, naan pebaya, khowsuey, steamed rice puffs with mushroom filling and corn fritters.
The mains are as delectable as the starters. Order, mohin (stir fry mushroom & street noodles), mandalaymeeshay, sticky rice with tofu curry and eggplant & tofu puree and you will not be disappointed. Wash it all down with Burma Burma’s sensational regional teas with flavours like lavender and lemongrass. The refreshing coolers serves as good option too. To conclude this fantastic Burmese journey sample their Burmese falooda and coconut custard. Coconut milk is their primary ingredient in cooking so be prepared for that. Not exceedingly pricey Burma Burma is a delightful venture that charms you and calms you like Buddha prayer wheels greeting you at the door.
