Cozy restaurant with helpful and pleasant staff. We had the Bourbon "chicken" (too sweet!) and black bean tofu stir fry (good but not exceptional.) vegan cheesecake was a treat as was the gluten free banana chocolate cake. Would not go out of our way to go back.

Red Bamboo opens at 12:30 p.m. There were five of us waiting to get in at 12:25, and by 12:45, the restaurant was quite full. That should tell you something about the popularity of Red Bamboo. I very much enjoyed my meal, vegan chicken parmesan and a fried collard green roll. The amount of the chicken parmesan was so substantial... More

Visitors here from the UK during our New York holiday, had heard very good things about this place, and it didn't disappoint!! It's a small intimate place, full of friendly staff and customers. We ended up having a lovely chat with some New Yorkers either side of our table! The food is amazing the first problem is what to eat,... More

Amazing experience !! So this a vegetarian/vegan restaurant which offers a menu with "fake meats" made with soy mainly. As a vegetarian myself, I was so happy to find a place where I could order literally anything on the menu ! I don't really miss the taste of meat, so I ordered an eggplant parmigiana which was really good But... More

I never miss an opportunity to dine at Red Bamboo when in NYC. It is a small establishment so tables are limited. It is so worth the wait. Try anything on the menu, you will be amazed!

I read about the barbecue buffalo wings in the other reviews and they did not disappoint! I've been a vegetarian now for 7 months and this is definitely the closest thing I've tasted to real chicken. I would go back just for those alone! The black bean ginger stir fry was also very tasty! The pulled pork sandwich was not... More

Staying in Greenwich Village

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.
