I remember this place as a flower shop so when I started hearing that Bamboo Thai was really good I thought...whatever! I went for lunch and was first surprised at how nice it was decorated for a small space. Staff was very good and very helpful and fast. The menu is extensive with any and all your favorite Thai dishes.... More

I tried this restaurant for the 1st time although I have been in Tulsa for many years. I ordered green curry with chicken and the dish was excellent. Maybe it is a bit salty if you are on a diet, but I guess that how it is when eating out. My waitress was nice. The restaurant atmosphere was good. Maybe... More

I tried this restaurant the 1st time today and my experience was good. The curry was very flavorful. My waitress was nice. The only downside for this restaurant is that the price is a bit high. The restaurant decoration is good. Will be back!

I've been to Bamboo Thai Bistro many times. Both, my wife and I absolutely love the food there. We appreciated the new addition of complimentary cabbage soup before the meal. However, we were very disappointed with a sudden reduction in the size of the portions they serve. We used to always feel full when we ordered one of the main... More

We made a last-minute choice to go out with a group of friends, and we could not get into our first 2 choices, so someone suggested Bamboo Thai. It is a small place, but we got right in at 7 pm on a Friday. Actually there were only 3 or 4 other tables with guests, otherwise empty! Service was good.... More

This food is as close to authentic your gonna get. Small place and simple deco, but don't come for Tue scene, come for the food! Our server was brand new and didn't really speak great English, but we made it work. Dis I mention how good this food is!

I have been to Bamboo Thai Bistro 5 times in the last 6 months and everytime I get the Pad Thai and it is absolutely amazing. I have had Pad Thai from 4 other restaruants in the last couple years, trying to find a place that compares to Bamboo Thai and it is a no go. I wish that it... More

It took courage to enter the small unappealing strip mall unwelcoming building, but once inside was pleasantly surprised. Attractive, if simple, dining room, and wonderfully prepared Thai food and sauces. Only the overcooked duck itself (likely prepared days in advance) in a lovely green curry with fresh vegetables lowered my food rating. Definitely above average.

We come to Tulsa for horse competitions and love sushi. We went with friends and some had sushi while I had the curry fried rice. It was all really good. Service was quick and the place looked clean inside. Don't let the outside facade of the restaurant scare you.
