Thai Bamboo Bistro in Quail Hill and The District are favorite places for lunch w friends or colleagues. Interesting flavors, artistic presentation and fast service. Portions are generous.

I ordered the crazy Veggie curry with tofu. Great restaurant for vegans and carnivores alike. Large serving for $11 and it arrived at the table quickly. I will be back.

Granted we arrived 15 minutes before closing for the lunch serving, however they should not have seated us if they knew they needed to leave. We had a pleasant server and received our drinks promptly and ordered our meal shortly after that. The Manager must have sent the server home, because we never saw her again. We were about 10...

Been having lunch here with a friend for several years. Small, clean, efficient service, and the food is just always good. I've tried most of the curries as well as other dishes and have never been disappointed. The price is around $9 for lunch and the quantity is just right but the flavors are what keep me coming back.

Sat outside on a beautiful day & had a great meal with my mom. Extensive menu-almost too much to choose from. Had a great entree salad of chicken with mango, preceded by a delicious chicken soup. No room for dessert after the lunch. Observed the place fill up twice while we were there. Portions are huge, food it good, value... More

This is a small Thai restaurant right next to Shady Canyon Golf course. You won't find fancy napkins or a 5 star atmosphere here. You will, however, find great food, friendly service, and reasonable pricing. It has been a while since we had Thai food, and we truly miss it. We stumbled upon this place, since a Sushi restaurant next... More

This is the best Thai restaurant I've found close to my home. Sure wish we had a Pok Pok, which is in Portland, OR, nearby.

We enjoyed our dinner, service was great and friendly. We opted for indoor, but outdoor looked comfy with the heaters (it really wasn't cold for a northerner, but the locals must have needed it!) Son is now local there and said he will be returning. That says it all.

Food and service is always very good at this established and well frequented Quail Hill restaurant. It's not the most elegant of places but it's very functional and the price is right. Food is hot and nicely presented. If you need a back rub, get a massage someplace! Otherwise, go to the Bamboo Bistro and enjoy a tasty meal!
