Food and service is always very good at this established and well frequented Quail Hill restaurant. It's not the most elegant of places but it's very functional and the price is right. Food is hot and nicely presented. If you need a back rub, get a massage someplace! Otherwise, go to the Bamboo Bistro and enjoy a tasty meal!

We sat there for at least 10 minutes without any recognition. I was never served water or asked if I wanted a drink. I ordered coconut chicken and it was more like a soup with two pieces of chicken swimming in a pool of veggies. Neither my friend nor I were able to eat our food. We sat there for... More

So good I returned the next night. They have a huge menu and great wine list.The first night I ordered a chicken dish with peanut sauce over spinach and rice. But my favorite was the next night steak with a sweet and sour sauce and veggies.The server was great and I like the atmosphere.

This Thai restaurant has a "green leaf" salad that was astonishingly good. I expected some lettuce, carrot and peanut dressing but I got slices of ripe mango with lime undertones and a rice crisp added to the presentation. It was delicious. I also ordered the veggie tofu red curry. It was tasty but I wish there had been a few... More

This restaurant's Thai dishes has been "Americanized" but taste pretty decent for Americanized Asian food; for an authentic Thai taste experience it's not but we'll still return. The service was quite good & the portions were very generous. It's no wonder the restaurant attracts patrons well after lunch as a meal here is a good deal; for $8, it gets... More

We went to eat at Thai Bamboo Bistro on Sunday Night! The food was excellent! We ordered brown rice, (which was very dark brown) and tasted very nutty, not starchy! It was a joy to eat food that was tasty and well made! The prices were very reasonable, the service was great, and the food was AWESOME! I would go... More

Our family and friends all love the Thai Bamboo Bistro, with one location in Irvine and one in Tustin. The food is always fresh and savory -- not too spicy and never recycled like a lot of Thai restaurants. The service is impeccable. Once we started eating at Thai Bamboo, we rarely have eaten at any other Thai restaurants.

I spotted this place while driving through the Quail Hill Village Center and the Albertson's there. I wanted an early dinner. It was just after 5:00 on a Monday and when I walked in, I was the only customer. They quickly sat me down and I ordered a large bottle of Singha beer ($7) while I was looking at the... More

Went with 6 people, we all got something different and shared. I liked everything with the exception of the Pad Thai. The Halibut dish was my favorite.
