Very close to Washington Square, and I just stumbled across it one lunchtime. Great lunch offers and the vegan mango chicken was absolutely gorgeous - looking round the busy little restaurant all the food looked really tasty!! The waitresses were also very good - enjoyed it.

Delicious vegan comfort food! It is a must stop on our list of restaurants every time we go to NYC. Fried chicken is on the top of the list, but I have not had anything that I didn't like! I crave it all the time. Also, very affordable!!

We knew 'Red Bamboo' would be good when we saw it was packed out on a Monday night! The friendly staff promised us a ten-minute wait and they were dead on the money. The food was heavenly. As a vegetarian through ethical choice, I miss the flavour and texture of meat, and the fried 'chicken' delivered - my wife thoroughly... More

I love meat but red bamboos food is so good that you won't miss meat. I've been coming here for about 5-6 years now and always enjoy the food. They manage to get the food to taste very similar to meat. My favorite is the buffalo chicken which they get to look like chicken drumsticks. The cheesecakes are also very... More

Went there Sunday night with a group of 6. One hour of wait time to get a table (quite a small place) which was fine, we just grabbed a beer at a nearby bar while waiting. I absolutely loved the food here and all of us were shocked about how well all dishes resembled meat dishes. I mean, vegetarian BBQ... More

The most schizophrenic meal ever. Server is nice. We order the BBQ wings and the Coconut Almond Chicken as apps. Both are incredible, like amazing. We are still eating those and another server walks up to our tiny table with two big dinner plates. I'm like what do you want us to do? We stack up our starter plates and... More

Being a Vegetarian it's wonderful to go a restaurant and being able to order anything that I want off the menu. My friend who is a carnivore absolutely loved it too. We shared 3 "chicken" dishes and they were all unbelievably amazing!!!!! Totally recommend a meal (or 2 if you have the time) here!!!

Some vegetarian restaurants serve a course of attitude with every meal. Not this one. It's good Asian-influenced food, prepared with non-meat alternatives that don't leave you feeling virtuous but unfulfilled. The menu is extensive, so you can eat there often and not have to repeat a dish for a long time. Bonus: on a dinner visit several years ago, I... More

If you are a vegetarian who may crave the meat dishes you used to eat, then you're in luck. Red Bamboo has some of the best veggie faux meat dishes I've ever had- from their soy buffalo wings to soy pork chops to soy fries chicken, every little taste will satisfy your craving and your stomach.

I came here with a vegetarian friend and didn't expect to like it. Wow did they change my mind! We had the most outstanding buffalo wings and chicken strips. The pork chops are fabulous as well. Everything was amazing. I can't say enough that this is a crazy-good restaurant. Give it a try!
