Okay so here goes... I'm a jealous vegetarian. Although the thought of eating a dead animal repulses me, I'm often a little bit envious of the food choices available to my carnivore boyfriend. Red Bamboo was the first time I've ever looked at a menu and been completely overwhelmed by the choices. In the end we ordered far too much... More

Wow. My wife and I just took our daughter out to Red Bamboo for her birthday. A wonderful dinner. We were stunned how authentically they've managed to mimic the flavors and textures in these dishes with soy and seitan. I'm from Virginia so I know southern fried chicken, old school, and I have to tell you, this was delicious. I... More

I've gotten the cashew chicken twice and it's been delicious. Hearty portion of soy chicken and they give me extra veggies because I don't eat rice. The gals that work there are very nice and the food is fast. It's a favorite of mine for lunch during the week when I want a treat.

Top notch high quality vegan food. Everything was delicious, there is not a bad choice on the menu. Portions generous, entrees moderately priced, servers friendly & helpful. Restaurant is small, seating and space not ample. A must go to place for vegans looking for great tasting food - varied selection from burgers, steaks to Mac & cheese & FABULOUS dessets.... More

My brother and sister-in-law invited us here and boy oh boy was the food good!! The "fried chicken" and "cheesecake" was to die for! I could not believe this food was vegan. I was in awe because it tasted like the real deal. I totally recommend! The only con of this place was the location... It's tiny and the bathroom... More

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

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.
