Sumptuous Thai and Pan-Asian

Having lived in Asia, I found that Thai food grew to be one of my favorites. The blending of Asian spices and the liberal use of peanut sauces make for some delectable dishes. Bamboo Thai Bistro has become a favorite among our group of friends, who dine there together at least once a month. And... read more

Atmosphere: very clean upscale and tasteful. Cloth napkins. White chairs--somewhat worn. (Biggest negative about the restaurant.) Relatively small and very clean. Staff: not overly friendly. Efficient. Refill water often. Good recommendations. Food: absolutely delicious once you get past the chips: Krupuk (shrimp wafers) brought out as an appetizer seem stale, not tasty. No sauce brought out with it. Not one... More

Excellent food!! Always excellent service too. This is a must for great Thai or Asian food. The Siam rolls are highly recommended for a good reason!

I took it as a good sign that the menu listed items with their Thai names, rather than the American equivalents. But some of the menu items seem to be Chinese. The waitress was ABC and did not understand any of my simple Thai words that I picked up on my two visits to Thailand. I ordered a simple Pad... More

Is this the best Thai food ever? No. Is it even amazing? No. But we have found, in general, Tulsa restaurants to be lacking in the "amazing" category and have decided that there is no point in heading to one of the top listed restaurants, drop $100 for two and leave having had a good meal only. We now eat... More

I am usually so pleased with Thai Bistro - the food is good, their medium is hot, the way I like it, and service is generally just right. However, last night I ordered take out and was so disappointed - I asked for two of one item, I received only one. And I ordered an eggplant dish and got a... More

You are always brought asian crispy chips made from shrimp. I enjoyed hot jasmine tea to go along with the green curry and shrimp I ordered. I ordered my curry medium spicey because the really hot is Really Hot. Always awesome food and I highly recommend it for a great dining experience.

I don't understand how the other guests liked their food. We love Thai food and have excellent Thai restaurants in Oklahoma City (Tana Thai is one of the best in OKC). We were really excited about trying Bamboo Thai Bistro since the reviews were so good. Sadly, we were extremely disappointed. We hardly ate any of it and left hungry.... More

Love picking up lunch here. I usually go for my favorite the cheesy noodles with chicken; medium heat. I've brought the husband a few times and he likes it as well.

Cannot believe I am looking at a negative review of this place titled "Worst thai food" but looking at her review it looks to me like she's more worried about the price, mentioned twice. She says she paid $27 for Pad Thai and Curry Chicken, and clearly she's upset about having to pay more than a McDonalds dollar menu price... More
