On my 1st visit to Mandalay, my friend's Burmese mother confirmed the authenticity of the food. She thoroughly enjoyed everything, as did the rest of us. Since then, I've brought many people to Mandalay, and it has always been a big hit. Usually, the people I've taken there haven't tried Burmese food before, and they are always pleasantly surprised by how good it is.
My personal favorite dish is the fried tofu w/broccoli & honey-kissed walnuts. Regardless of what entree you order, try it over coconut rice!! The coconut rice is so delicious. The desserts are also tasty and probably unlike anything you've had before--I recommend sharing one with a few people.
The waitstaff are friendly and accomodating, and the overall atmosphere is relaxing. It's quiet enough for conversation, and no one rushes you. I highly recommend giving Mandalay a try.
