Rangoon Ruby Burmese Cuisine - San Carlos
My wife and I enjoy the food and service. We eat at Rangoon regularly They give you plates of food that can be shared
Good for groups to share plates family style.
We've been here several times and generally have a good experience. Prices have definitely increased significantly, and although the food is good, I'm not sure such an increase was warranted. The meal this experience wasn't as flavorful as others in the past. Service was great, though. I would still recommend, but there are plenty of more reasonably-priced restaurants around.
We always enjoy taking people to Rangoon Ruby for something a little different. They have a good mix of offering for different tastes and diets.
Great decor, prompt service, excellent food, attentive staff. I would definitely recommend this place and I would go back.
The air conditioning wasn’t working and we had to tell them to open the door as it became very humid and stuffy.
We had asked for spicy food and the food came out totally bland.
The service was outstanding and the food delicious. Perfect for a ladies night out.
Always so good! Tea leaf salad, basil lamb, lemongrass chicken, garlic noodles...all absolutely delicious!
Excellent food at a very reasonable price. I strongly recommend it.
Always delicious and with excellent service. Consistently delightful.
Very nice hostess, good service and excellent food.
A fun gathering place for friends and family. All of our dishes were delicious. Served fresh and hot. Very accommodating wait staff. Plenty of gluten free options on the menu. Their green tea salad is SO yummy!!
For many years we have loved Rangoon Ruby. But this visit was disappointing. Something has changed. The Pad Thai was not as good as before--the sauce seemed darker and tastes different. The Pumpkin/Salmon Stew was overcooked. We ordered coconut rice but received plain rice instead. The staff, while friendly, were not attentive, even though the place was not at all full on a Saturday night. We would love to go back but only if things improve.
The food was disappointing. This was my second time dinning at this establishment. We ordered the chicken pumpkin curry. The dish was served cold and was filled with pumpkin. There were only A few pieces of chicken.
Great food with lots vegetarian options !
air conditioning not working properly in the restaurant during heat wave. it was extremely uncomfortable but the food was great.
A gluten free menu. I still think we never got the lamb curry haha
Our reservation was at 11:30 am. When we got there we were told they could sit us but that they did not have their cooks yet. We said we didn’t mind since we were there already but it was an inconvenience due to the fact that I only had an hour to spare.
Extensive menu and well prepared delicious Burmese dishes A very nice alternative to the usual San Carlos dinner spots.
Food and service was very good Lamb was delicious. Introduced it to a friend who also was very happy with the dish
First impression, I was seating at the second seat next to the window table. The wall beside me was dirty, it looks like a spilled coffee or wine, maybe I have some OCD I don't know, so I told one of the house man if he can do something about it, he used a napkin, to try and clean it, it got better. Two meals were orderd, food was just okay, so is everything else. Nothing stood out.
Among the Rangoon Ruby restaurants in the Bay Area, my husband and I have found the one in San Carlos to be the best, all around.
Great food, nice atmosphere
Food is always well prepared, flavourful and consistent in quality. Service is prompt, courteous, and not obtrusive. The entire crew is commended.
We won‘t come back. The food was below average, definitely nothing special.
Went to this place to meet a friend for dinner. It is very close to the San Carlos CalTrain station. They don't offer cocktails but have a small, but good choice of beers, and wine. The food is delivered quickly and is very good.
San Carlos location's gone downhill. We were there when restaurant was empty and yet server messed up our order and the food we got was bland - whole group felt dishes were under-par and lesser than we had received before at this location. I've had take-out from Burlingame restaurant than was better than that evening in San Carlos. On the positive side, they were extremely attentive with water. For the price, I would not go back again.
Quick service just before closing! Food was delicious!
Wow, I had never been here before. everything was so flavorful and the waiter we had was so nice and considerate. It was my friend's 60th birthday and we were all stuffed after dinner but he brought a little ice cream with a sparkly candle in it. So nice! i highly recommend the mango chicken!
Fun sparkler on the birthday ice cream was a perfect finish to our ladies only dinner!
Waitress served the drinks but never came back to take our order. We have to call the manager and she took our order. Also, the sales tax charge was more than the legal one in San Carlos, CA
The food is fabulous and the service is just as good. The only issue with this location is the tables are just too close to each other.
Thank you for the feedback, Susan! We appreciate the comments and are glad you joined us. We look forward to your next visit.
I liked the food and the environment. I was looking for a place to meet a friend and talk and we stayed a long time, enjoyed the food and we felt comfortable staying as long as we did. It is the first Burmese restaurant I tried but I would definitely go again.
Thank you for the rating and review. We are glad to hear that you enjoyed your first time trying Burmese and look forward to having you back to explore more! We were happy to have you in. Take care!
We come to this neighborhood restaurant a lot as love the food. However it is very noisy restaurant and therefore hard to hold a conversation. We also had a problem with the sequencing of the food... our main course arrived long after we were done with appetizer and noodle dish, so we ended up taking it home. Pricy $$$
Thank you for the feedback. Though we are glad to see that you loved the food, we apologize for the pacing of the meal and noise level. We appreciate your comments and will definitely share them with our team! It was great hearing from you and we hope to have you back soon.
Food was great, but the server and noise level were not. It was hard having a conversation and the server was apathetic and not really helpful.
Rico terrific waiter. Food was top rate Basil chili lamb and Burmese Shrimp pad Thai excellent
The service was outstanding and the food was absolutely fabulous! We look forward to going back to this restaurant on a regular basis.
Wow! Thank you so much for the lovely review. It was a delight to see how much you loved your experience. We look forward to seeing you again.
Went her for Valentine’s Day dinner so maybe not the best day to go out due to the crowds. Nothing special or tasty about the place. Very crowded and cramped quarters for dinner. Service was slow to the fact that we thought they had forgotten us at one point. I don’t have high hopes for Valentine’s Day in general but felt this place was really a disappointment. Have lived int the area for years but had never been here and really don’t think I will be going back. So many better choices in the area!
