Strips of tender beef are tossed with dried chili flakes, jalapeños, and onions. This super flavorful dish is finished with a scattering of fresh Thai basil and a side of fragrant coconut rice. Rangoon Ruby is our go-to spot for Burmese food. We love the fresh, modern approach their chefs bring to this cuisine that combines the flavors and techniques of Thai, Chinese, and Indian cooking. We're thrilled to feature some of their best dishes on our menu.

Too spicy
3 Stars
Didn't like rice being sweet
4 Stars
I like the beef a lot, but coconut flavor rice tastes a little bit weird. The coconut flavor is too strong.
1 Stars
Salty beef. Not flavorful at all. Worst meal so far through munchery.
2 Stars
I've gotten this before and this time it was just a little too spicy but really do like it , just needed to be toned down a bit so other flavors could come thru
3 Stars
Too spicy
5 Stars
Very tasty ! Great if you love spicy food!
4 Stars
We have ordered this 3 times in the past and usually it is delicious, but the order from 6/23/16 was so spicy my kids wouldn't eat it. They have eaten it in the past, so the amount of hot pepper is not consistent batch to batch.
2 Stars
Rice didn't travel well. Dry.
3 Stars
The flavor was delicious IF you can handle the "heat". It was way too spicy for both of us. Added sour cream. Loved the coconut rice. No reviews mentioned it was too spicy. Would be helpful if people could add the spice sauce to own taste instead.
5 Stars
Beef was so tender and the coconut rice was slightly sweet which combined perfectly with the beef. One of my favorites!
5 Stars
For the spicy lovers! Tender beef & sweet coconut rice with a kick.
5 Stars
Always a favorite. This dish is absolutely delicious. The portion looks small but once it's plated there is plenty. The coconut rice....is incredible.
4 Stars
Very tasty with a nice kick. The rice is really tasty as well, nice surprise. 4 stars because I think adding in some veggies would be good.
2 Stars
Rice was flavorful but on the dry side & basil beef was too spicy could do without the jalapeños.
1 Stars
Use way too many plastic containers. Very sad.
3 Stars
Chili beef was very good, but coconut rice was much too sweet, would have preferred plain rice.
5 Stars
Just delicious.
3 Stars
this dish used to be much milder in how spicy hot it is. Loved it then. But in my last 2 orders, it's been soooo hot, I could barely eat it. Suggest using less heat and put pepper in a little dish so people who like it hot can use what they want.
1 Stars
Taste is not very good (it is normal). There is no much beef (I can even count). It is not worth $11.
4 Stars
One of my favorites. However, portion size has gotten smaller than in the past.
3 Stars
Into spicy good rice
4 Stars
Very good!!! Spicier Thani anticipated but didn't deter me from gobbling it down. Rice is fantastic too and compliments the beef well.
5 Stars
The seasoning on the beef was perfect. I like how they put the pepper paste and the fried onion separate. The coconut rice was a bit sweet but edible. Perfect for dinner.
4 Stars
I order this dish frequently. This time, it was much tooooo hot!!! Somebody poured lots of dried chili peppers into the dish. Moderation would've been better, like it is cooked most of the time. Hence 4 stars instead of the usual 5 stars.
3 Stars
Great flavor, skimpy portion

Tasty meal. Would be nice to have more FRESH basil leaves.

Rice was the best I've ever had
3 Stars
Love the coconut rice! Good sauce & garnish. Beef was a little gristly. It would be great if there were less plastic! Biodegradable containers are highly preferred
3 Stars
Beef dish to rice ratio is small. Plus, this coconut rice is too sweet.
4 Stars
Rice was sweet. Tasted like Thai mango rice dessert. The beef was good and right amount of spice
3 Stars
Was so small!

Not impressed. Lacked vegetables and flavor. Very bland

4 Stars
Full of flavor and med. heat. Delicious with the coconut rice. Would order again.
3 Stars
Loved the chili - hated the rice
5 Stars
We LOVE this dish. So much flavor, delicious! It is one of our favorites (maybe THE favorite). Our only complaint is it comes with a wonderful spicy red sauce and they never give enough of it.
5 Stars
Yum!
5 Stars
Delicious meal. Only slightly spicy hot, which is the way I like it.
5 Stars
This is incredible. The beef: soft and flavorful. The rice: addictive and sweet. The crispy onions ... the spices ... the caramelized onions... It's all there.
5 Stars
This is like the best rice I've ever eaten!! So good!!
5 Stars
All of Rangoon Ruby's dishes are excellent in taste and quantity!
4 Stars
The portion was extremely small, however, it was delicious!
2 Stars
I think the photo is misleading - I found the size of the beef serving to be very small.
5 Stars
Overall delicious and balanced, the coconut rice is AMAZING
5 Stars

Seriously!!! That was a kids meal portion!
5 Stars
I ate everything on the plate sauce, rice, meat...it was all good! Good portion.
4 Stars
Very good
5 Stars
My new favorite. Wish it had a little bit more veg, maybe more green pepper and carrots or broccoli.
5 Stars
So. Good. Loved this meal. Would appreciate a little more "sauce" when mixed with the rice - reheating the both tends to be a bit dry. Even so - loved the flavor.
1 Stars
Tasty enough but way more onions than anything. I might have had a total of four little pieces of beef? Unacceptable.
5 Stars
Every component was so delicious! Loved the fried shallots and chili sauce
5 Stars
Coconut rice very nice touch
3 Stars
We would prefer to have brown rice or a healthier option, white rice is not good for diabetics. The sauce on the Chili Beef was way too hot and we could not use it.
1 Stars
There was a small rock/bone in this dish that my wife almost chipped her teeth on.
3 Stars
We don't have a microwave and I would like to see more heating options that involve using the stove top or oven
5 Stars
We ordered this a second time because we loved it the first time. Still equally delicious. Great consistency! We will be ordering it again for sure!
1 Stars
Too much rice not enough beef
1 Stars
Very flavorful, but a minuscule portion of beef. Were it not for the rice, I would still have been hungry after finishing the meal.
1 Stars
Too many onions!!
5 Stars
This continues to be one of my favorites. Meal is tasty, satisfying and filling. If U were using 1, 2 or 3 chilis to denote degree of hot spiciness, this would be a 1 chili. I'm glad I didn't let the chili symbol deter me from ordering this.
5 Stars
Really Great meal! Meat and onions cooked perfectly. Also Love the side of caramelized onion, very authentic!
2 Stars
Good flavor but portion is tiny. About Panda Express one item
5 Stars
Outstanding flavor!
1 Stars
the dish is so small that does not worth the money.
1 Stars
Portions way too small for price
4 Stars
It will be nice if some veggi is added to the dish
5 Stars
Delicious. Tender no fat strips of flavor infused beef. Spicy sauce separate so each diner can titrate to taste. Perfect rice with just the right balance of distinct kernels and moisture. Yum
3 Stars
Small meat portion.
4 Stars
Very good, but amount was small.
4 Stars
A little sweet and more onions than I care for, but I would order it again.
5 Stars
Love this dish! Perfect blend of flavors with a nice chili kick (I removed whole chilies before reheating and added a little hot sauce). Also loved the coconut rice, have ordered it as a side to have with other dishes. Please offer this frequently!!!
5 Stars
Excellent!!
5 Stars
Thanks for not loading the dish up with so much chili peppers like U did last time. I really enjoyed today's meal. Where's the basil? There was 1 or 2 well cooked pieces but no fresh ones like in the picture.
5 Stars
Yummmmmm! And that coconut rice!
4 Stars
Would have like to have had a brown rice option, but no complaints about the taste. Absolutely delicious!
5 Stars
So delicious!! The coconut rice is so flavorful. There is nothing not to love about this dish.
4 Stars
Very good flavors. A little bit more meat would be nice.
1 Stars
I'm sure this would be to some people's tastes, but it's not at all as described. It has an extremely heavy, very sweet coconut flavor that was overpowering (the beef, not the rice). This is not called out in the high level description.
5 Stars
Delicious meal. Filling and satisfying. My meal came with 6 chili peppers and a side of hot sauce. 6 chilies were too hot for me. 3 or 4 would've been adequate. People who wanted it hotter can use the hot sauce.
3 Stars
No basil ?
5 Stars
Yummy!

Loved it.
