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

A group of us came to this restaurant at 8:45, as we were starving we ordered a table full of appetizers and our main courses nearly all at once. Our drinks came out quickly - a lovely selection of fun cocktails to chose from. The appetizers were reasonably quick to arrive - and they were all amazing. Our favoruites were... More

We were at BA during the carnival and not many restaurants were open. We came accross Green Bamboo at a BA guide. The negative reviews at Trip Advisor were too strong so that we were expecting not much. We got an incredible atmosphere in a well decorated room, the food was fantastic, we ordered two entrees (the one with 7... More

What we tried: salmon tartare, Saigon nems, clay-pot white salmon (CA KHO TO), chicken curry (CÀRI GÀ), locomotion (cocktail), one non-alcoholic cocktail and two "vietnamese" coffees. Overall we were underwhelmed in terms of the flavour: the tartare was average (served with wasabi sauce-so not in any way typically Vietnamese or South-East Asian), the nems, again, average and the main courses...

The rating of poor I'm giving is based on the food, and primarily because it was not Vietnamese. Many of the ingredients were there, but the way they were used did not translate into anything resembling Vietnamese cuisine. The Bun Cha we ordered was 'deconstructed' consisting of separate piles of herbs (Sweet Basil, not Thai Basil), and rice noodles on... More

Buenos Aires Asian restaurants are not the best you could find in the world. Green bamboo is not an exception. The place is nice and the service is also very good but, I'm afraid, the food is just average.

I really enjoyed dinner and drinks in Green Bamboo - it made such a refreshing change from the usual Buenos Aires cusine and restaruants. Very relaxed atmosphere, we sat on cushions on the floor at a low table and enjoyed cocktails (purple geisha definitley recommend trying this!), we shared a starter, main course and desert and my taste buds were...

Green Bamboo is a very nice experience all round. The dining tables, which are either low Japanese style or conventional height (specify when booking) are situated around a beautiful and well-stocked bar. The Vietnamese food is exquisite and the barmen will put together any cocktail you like in addition to their own specialties. Nice atmosphere, good service and excellent background... More
