If you are looking for fine dining, this is not the place for you. If you enjoy a delicious meal with folksy style, you are at the right place. We had 7:30 reservations, and were seated at our reserved table. It is a family run restaurant; our waitress was the owners daughter, his wife the cook. Seemed as though the... More

Entree selections of Oxtails , MacNCheese, each made our trip worth while. An amazing dinner salad put the visit over the top. We will return for more items including Roti, Dal, and Guava Cheesecake.

Wow. Look, I am not experienced with Caribbean food –but I know food. The food here is pretty incredible. Not to mention the value for money! A good friend and I caught up and selected this place (my 2nd choice) based on other review within easy walking distance in Delray Beach. The restaurant is pretty small and the first thing... More

Don't blink bc you may very well miss this gem of a restaurant! Everything about Bamboo Fire is authentic and therefore delicious, but if I had to suggest my top 3 dishes: 1. Eggplant Appetizer 2. Curry Chicken ( get roti bread for dipping too) 3. Curry Goat Enjoy!

This tiny family run restaurant is one of Delray Beach's best kept secrets. It is kind of off the beaten path, and if you didn't know better you might think its outdoor tables belong to the establishment next door! Service is slow because every meal is cooked to order, so be patient, enjoy another beer or glass of wine and... More

Bamboo Fire Cafe is a small cozy family owned and run restaurant on NE 4th Ave in Delray Beach. The conch fritters were awesome. I had jerk chicken with spiced rice and a salad with red and yellow peppers with a mango vinaigrette dressing. My husband had jerk pork. If you have concerns about the spice level order mild. Prices... More

What an amazing place to eat...If you're not familiar with South Florida, you could think that Florida is filled with lots of great caribbean restaurants...In fact, they're extremely hard to find. What you'll easily find down here though is many ``seafood`` restaurants offering loads of overgreased, overpriced, ordinary meals that you'll forget very quickly. Bamboo fire is the real deal....

I've tried dozens of "Authentic Caribbean" restaurants, the vast majority of which are complete disappointments. Bamboo Fire was an absolute delight. I could not stop smiling after our meal. Clean, delicious, authentic food in a charming atmosphere and attentive owners chatting between bites. So good. So so good. If I didn't live across the state, I'd be there 3 times... More

Bamboo Fire is a one-of-kind, family-owned Caribbean joint just off the Atlantic Blvd in Del-Ray Beach. The food, decor, and ambience are authentic as it gets. This place is reminiscent of the local cafes and restaurants that are scattered throughout the islands. However.... If you are a stickler for high service standards that so many Americans have come accustomed to-this... More

Being snowbirds for the second time we were in search of new restaurants less expensive and more interesting than the ones on Atlantic Avenue. We went to the restaurant without a reservation but they accomodated us outside which was our preference anyway. It is a very small place and all the inside tables had reservation signs on them. The food... More
