On a recent trip to BA, we were looking for flavorful Asian Cuisine in a land of steak and Green Bamboo did not disappoint. The wine and cocktails were great, and the restaurant had a really cool vibe. Yes, as people have noted, the food is on the pricier side, however, we all thought it lived up to the extra... More

As vegetarians, we went to Green Bamboo with very high expectations given the fantastic reviews. However, I was disappointed with the food and overall experience. - The service was extremely poor - seemed to be doing us a favor by serving us food - Many of the vegetarian options were not available - we were pretty much told our order...

Two years ago, on my first visit to Buenos Aires, I loved this restaurant. The food was flavorable and well presented. This time, I quickly discovered the place had gone down hill, way down hill. Service was abysmal. We waited 45 minutes between our appetizers and our entree. The waitress passed our table numerous times, never stopping to say our... More

Don't go with expectations of Vietnam. We were looking forward to this place because of the reviews and our love of Vietnamese food. You will be served their interpretation of Vietnamese food which is nothing like it., Maybe three times the price of regular Vietnamese food as well. A great disappointment for us as we really went out of our... More

Went to this place because of the reviews. Worst foods ever. They just basically tasteless. Lots of salt and nothing else. The spring roll, stuffed squid, Chicken Pho and Cha Ca (Fish with tumeric) are all bad. I understand that this is Buenos Aires so I can not expect to have the same quality of Vietnamese foods in the States,... More

The ambience is lovely in this place. You can get very close to your date in the floor cushion seating area, and plowing them with drinks is no problem as they are so delicious you'll just keep throwing them back. Dinner was also very good, but frankly you can find better Asian food in BsAs for the price. I did... More

Very dark rooms, wonderful service, but know your Spanish; try the spring rolls, fried tofu and eggplant wontons, ribs.

Wouldn't go back there. Went to this restaurant expecting to find simple and tasty vietnamese food, but this is too sophisticated, in a bad way. Food was not tasty and it was also very expensive, as were the wines. The place is beautiful, though. If you are willing to go, make a reservation.

If you enjoy expertly mixed cocktails and a stimulating atmosphere in which to enjoy them, head to the Green Bamboo, Costa Rica 5802 in Palermo Hollywood! This is what a memorable cocktail bar should be, intimate, intriguing decor, seductive lighting, cool music that stimulates but does not overpower conversation. And more importantly, professional bartenders experienced at mixing seriously good cocktails.... More
