Almost 10 years ago I first went to Red Bamboo upon the recommendation of someone at Moo Shoes, the vegetarian shoe store. I enjoyed their BBQ vegan drumsticks so much that I eventually found a store in Queens to get the vegan drumsticks in bulk and make my own. Red Bamboo has vegan everything - soups, salads, appetizers, mock chicken,... More

My wife is vegan, so occasionally I will go out and eat at vegan/vegetarian restaurants with here since I feel it's good to be open-minded in a relationship. She introduced me to Red Bamboo from a mutual friend and each time we go to New York now, it is our go-to restaurant that has the most authentic mock meat based... More

Even if you are not vegetarian or vegan you must visit this small awesome restaurant. You won't believe you are not eating chicken or meat. The service is great and I cant stop saying how delicious is the food and wait until you try the desserts.

There is a vegan in our extended family and she insisted that we go to this place. Because I am a light meat eater, eating meat or fish at maybe 25% of all meals, a vegan place is fine by me. And New York has plenty of vegan choices among Asian places and Middle Eastern places just for starters. Many,... More

The staff were all friendly and welcoming, my order was taken quickly, and my drinks and food were served really quickly too! Great prompt service. The food itself was amazing. As... More

Red Bamboo was recommended by a friend, and I was excited, what with all the amazing restaurants in NY. It looked promising and the staff is super-nice, but I became very ill with food poisoning after I ate there. I had a veggie curry, but because almost all dishes are centred around fake meat, I think they should be more... More
