Success! Thanks for posting your review of Red Bamboo. You’ve done the world some good today.

Never Again

First off,the space heater by the door was a classy touch to this overcrowded hole,our server was good and the food came out fast but they aren't reinventing the wheel,and as for my gripe,i usually put some extra with the bill and see if they give me change and then leave some more on the table,makes everyone feel a bit special as they usually share the tips anyway,but having the girl come up and ask me if everything... view more

good food. very very bad service

I really love the food howevr they just don't care about hospitality and making things right. Especialy when they screw up. I order delivery from them all the time. A while back I ordered some food and spring rolls were part of my order. When I recieved the order the spring rolls were not included. When I called to complain and asked them to please send me what I paid for they said that they will not send the deliver... view more

good food, seating's a tight squeeze

I came to Red Bamboo b/c I've been to Soy and Sake Village (not yet on CS) which is a new Veg restaurant that the owner of RB opened and was so excited to give it a try. I went on a Fri night and luckily got the last table for 2 so didn't have to wait but there was quite the wait within a few minutes time. It's a tiny place and I had to shimmy into my seat without disturbing the other diners. The food was def. above ... view more

The food is insane! It's some of the best and most creative vegetarian food I've ever had. Everything is so fresh and beautifully prepared. YUM!

A veggie guilty pleasure

Vegetarian meats total yumminess at Red Bamboo. Its dishes are mostly bad for you (especially anything fried) but they're oh so tasty you won't care. Everything from their sandwiches to the entrees are plated beautifully and their portions will not disappoint. A casual atmosphere makes this a fun place to eat as well.

Consistently delicious

Red Bamboo is a reliably yummy place for lunch or dinner -- and they do great platters for events too.

This is NYC and there are plenty of vegetarian restaurants to choose from. So, my point...AVOID this one at all costs. The food may be decent but the RUDE customer service (the HOSTESS during the DINNER shift) will turn your evening into a night from hell. Great food + quality service=success...unfortunatley not so for Red Bamboo. The hostess wil ignore you and suggest that you squeeze into a two seat table for a par... view more

Food that doesn't make my insides hurt!

Following having my gall bladder removed, I had to make serious changes to my diet: I HAVE to eat healthy, otherwise, my insides hurt. I am very happy to say Red Bamboo does not let me down. I've dined there once for dinner and once for lunch. On a Wednesday at 7pm, it was about 45 minutes for our party of four to be seated - accurately quoted by the hostess who took our phone number and promptly called us when our t... view more

Good food, very small space

Went to Red Bamboo early on a Saturday evening. I'm not a vegatarian so all I can say about the food is that for a red meat eater I found it to be tasty. The vegatarian and the vegan in the group both said the food was good. This is not a place for big groups as the restaurant is very small. We didn't have a problem getting a seat as we went fairly early by NYC standards, 5pm. We had a group of five and really we wer... view more

Such a dissapointment...

If I wanted meat entrees I'd eat meat. The fake meat entrees neither impress meat eaters or vegetarians. I was dissappointed by both the service, food and decor. They took one of the most incredible spaces in Fort Greene and did very little with it. Following an Ital diet for 7 years now, I can't count how many other places I'd rather eat then this one - even if the selection is one vegetarian entree alone. If you wa... view more
