Great Vegan Chinese Food

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... read 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

As a non-vegetarian, I came to this restaurant somewhat curious. The menu reads like a normal carnivore restaurant - seafood, beef, chicken, etc. But the speciality here, of course, is that all the "meats" are actually mock meat, made from vegetarian substitutes (and flavoured to taste like meat). I have to say, although the texture of the mock meats were... More

My brother, who is a vegetarian, was drooling at the mention of this restaurant. Having eaten here many times on previous visits to the city, he was anxious to share this find with his family. You would not have known that the

If you're vegetarian, hell even if you're not, you'll love the food here. We shared a portion of buffalo wings to start and wished we'd had one each! This is seriously good quality food. The philly cheese steak sandwich was heavenly, the bread was so light and everything tasted superb. Service was great and the décor is pleasant. The bill... More

I am a consummate carnivore, but my fiancé and friend are vegetarian, and so we had an early meal at Red Bamboo on a Saturday in February. We waited a bit and shared a communal table with another group of people (we didn't know them, but became fast friends over the insanely delicious buffalo wings!). The wait and the close-quarters...

Every time I'm in NYC I have to stop by for the buffalo wings. The rest of the offerings are good but it is the appetisers that are the best bit.

Visited Red Bamboo 4 times, and food was always really good, not too surprising but I really appreciate their many options and all vegetarian or vegan. I tried their bamburger, spaghetti, tofu and cheeseravioli, and my favorite was spaghetti with soyballs in tomatosauce (included enough garlic, delicious!). Their vegan desserts were nice. We ordered just one piece of cake for... 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.
