“One of those nights...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2012

Very good rating goes to the service (and the food ain't bad either)!
My wife and us went to the green bamboo to take a break from steak and malbec and arrived at the restaurant around midnight.
The place was very vibrant with a mix of people.
Our server was nice enough to change our table and advice on what to get... until disaster struck...while taking away the plates she dropped the soy sauce bowl on my wife's white silk jacket...
[--] happens. I think the poor waitress was mortified and the manager came up to me to apologise.
He was deeply sorry for what has happened he offered to pay to dry clean the jacket although we were leaving the next day. When we asked the bill he offered us a very, very generous discount.
Thumbs up for the service, food is good if you are looking for a break from steaks!

“real vietnamese?”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2012

one thing i do miss in Buenos Aires is East Asian food. here in Argentina, people don't enjoy neither soup nor spicy food.
so i got some info thru here and went to this place.
the atmosphere was so good. and the poeple there was sooooo nice,
but the food,, was not that good... the quality was good and it seemed like the cook tried really hard... but for me, it doesn't feel like real vietnamese food, especially the pho. a bit strange...
if you miss Asian style deco, you can visit here... but still quite quite expensive!

“Delicious huge portions of Vietnamese”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2012

Large portions of delicious Vietnamese at a high price. Very cool atmosphere- you sit on cushions around a table in a chic low-lit atmosphere. Great drinks as well and many gluten-free options.

“Great Vietnamese”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2012

Amongst the best Vietnamese food I have ever eaten - and that's a fair bit considering the number of Vietnamese restaurants in Sydney! Thoroughly recommended.

“Great Food and fun service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2012

We had a large group and we all had fun except for it was hot in our corner. The food is so tasty and a great break from BBQ carne.
They have some nice seating areas. Be patient... they get busy and service and food comes slowly.
