A proper vegan treat

We turned up without reservation on a Saturday night and had to wait about 20 minutes but it was so worth it, the range of food offered, including vegan friendly beers and wines, is amazing and the food out of this world, as part time vegetarians we felt like something different, but our experience... read more

This restaurant serves vegan food in a most elegant way. I like going to places that serve healthy food without drawing a lot of attention to it. It's a small place which was full on a Sunday evening but didn't feel crowded. There were families with small children as well as couples apparently on dates. Lots of choices on the... More

Having been a vegetarian for over 15 years, Red Bamboo surprises me each time I am eating there! The food is fresh, delicious, tasty and the menus hold so many amazing bites ready for you, you never get tired eating there! I can totally recommend the BBQ wings! The price is totally fair for what you get on your plate!!!... More

Tons of comfort food options here - not exactly low fat but all vegan and all quite satisfying. Great desserts, too.

Amazing food all around in a cute little west village establishment. I love brining non veggies friends to check out their extensive menu. Everyone always leaves satisfied.

Service - 5 stars The employees were very friendly. Attentive, but not overbearing. Food - 4 stars The sweet and sour chicken was really good! Yum! I only wish the chicken pieces were crispy! I'll definitely order that again next time! The Creole soul chicken was yummy as well! It was battered very well. Nice and crispy! The popcorn chicken... More

Looking for a place to eat in the area and the reviews of Red Bamboo made it seem fantastic, so we went for dinner around 5pm on a Sunday evening. We were seated right away. There were patrons at nearly every table. Someone brought water and took our appetizer order. We got chicken wings and collard green rolls. They seemed... More

We went for dinner and got the only vacant table, it's a very busy little restaurant. We shared the zucchini and tofu and sweet potato and broccoli all were tempura, and the black bean vegie stir fry with brown rice. Service was fast, food came out fast and was absolutely delicious, we also had a glass of Malbec which had... More

I am genuinely baffled at the glowing reviews here. I've never eaten such sub-par food in a restaurant, nevermind a veggie one! The inside was buzzing when I arrived, but the decor was cheerless, lacking in personality. It felt like a stop-gap, temporary unit for a restaurant. Don't be fooled by appearances I told myself as I took my seat.... More

Staying in Greenwich Village

Neighborhood Profile
Greenwich Village
Commonly known as “the Village” to New Yorkers, it was here in Greenwich Village that both 1960’s counter culture and the LGBT movement were born. Famous for its bohemian past, head to Washington Square Park to get a feel for this diverse and energetic neighborhood. You’ll find NYU students, street performers, skateboarders, kids frolicking in the fountain, and locals relaxing and playing chess. Stroll the streets to discover a mix of majestic town homes and hidden bars and restaurants that give this neighborhood an old-school residential feel. When the sun goes down, check out one of the famous jazz or comedy clubs that still packs them in every night.
