Burmese/Chinese Restaurant at Palo Alto Rangoon restaurant is one of the best kept secrets in downtown Palo Alto. The food tastes great, and the prices are extremely reasonable. You can feast on samosas, spicy eggplant, shrimp with asparagus in garlic sauce, orange peel chicken, and fantastic coconut rice for about $10/person.
This is a wonderful mom-and-pop neighborhood restaurant that is classy but not too fancy. You don't need reservations, and it's a good place to go for a date or just with friends 'n' family.
