I absolutely love this place. The Wings are the best things ever!!! I've been a veggie for 22 years now and never had wings, Philly Cheese steak etc so to get all this as a veggie option is fantastic! I go to this place every time I'm in New York :)

I am a vegetarian and was exited at the prospect of finding a vegetarian restaurant. Having visited many before it's amazing what you can do with so many ingredients in the world to create meat imitation - this is not one of those restaurants. They have created meat dishes using one ingredient only - quorn. Quorn cooked in different ways.... More

Despite the very long wait (because this place is VERY small...and they did a very poor job of estimating the length of the wait), we thoroughly enjoyed the food. The chicken wings are a great appetizer and the sesame was a hit for the entrees (just like a place near home). The Peanut Butter Heaven pie was truly heavenly. Hard... More

This is the best Vegan restaurant I've been to. I love this place. The chicken parmigiana and the eggplant parmigiana is my favorite dishes

Loved this little gem in NYC!! Very pretty and inviting. Ordered the Garlic Fried Rice ($5.95 with white rice) and it was sooo tasty. Portion was large enough for two to share. My friends ordered the Bamburger & the Teriyaki Veggie Stir Fry and found them to be wonderful. Sides of Sweet Potato Fries, Collard Greens with Vegan Ham and... More

It is a rare treat to find a restaurant that is totally dedicated to quality Vegan/Veggie fare. A quick glance at the menu and you can relax - not a Mediterranean vegetable pasta bake in sight!! The food was very good and it was wonderful to be able to choose from a whole menu. It's small and cosy, lots of... More

My lovely girlfriend recommended the restaurant spontaneously. I was a little apprehensive. I had my heart set on going somewhere else. I am glad I tried the 'Red Bamboo'. I had a their 'soy Steak Burger w/ fries'. The food was delicious. The atmosphere was wonderful. The service was nothing to complain about. I was impressed with the $$$. I... More

We visited Red Bamboo 3 times on our 6 day trip to NY. Every dish we had was delicious! I thoroughly recommend the Creole Seoul Chicken and the cakes are lovely. The portions are huge and very filling. Staff very welcoming too.

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.
