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

I don't know how else to describe our experience here other than totally awesome. Food prepared by Mom and Grandma, and daughter too, is soooo delish. Daughter serves food and is so sweet and attentive. Dad seats you and describes the dishes with such enthusiasm. Conch was prepared fresh and tender. Jerk meatballs and jerk chicken tasted so good, just... More

Only open for dinner on the weekends, this place manages to get in enough business during this period to keep it afloat. How? Because it's so good and has a strong base of local, loyal customers. The food, like the service, is great whether you're getting a Caribbean influences salad or some other plate. One of the things that I... More

Our first time to this hidden treasure in Delray and will not be our last!! We had a friend visiting and he wanted to take us out to dinner and it's always a little nerve wracking hoping that you choose a place that your guest will like especially when it's there treat.
