Description: Red Bamboo has been a West Village staple for over 15 years providing delicious vegan and vegetarian comfort food. Our tasty menu includes our famous BBQ Buffalo Wings, Creole Soul Chicken and BBQ Ribs with one twist - they are all completely meatless! Our menu is 100% vegetarian and predominantly vegan. With mouth watering desserts from Vegan Treats and Klein's Ice Cream, Red Bamboo is proof that even vegans know how to indulge.

This restaurant is a breath of fresh air for vegetarians.

It's in Greenwich Village, between 6th Ave and Macdougal (quite close to Magnolia Bakery so handy for a trip there for dessert!).

The menu is full of fresh, interesting and unique dishes which all have the taste and appearance of meat. There really is something for everyone, from veggie fish and chips to bbq ribs! I highly recommend the Veggie Chicken Satay to start followed by the Bamburger, it was so good I had it two days running!

My boyfriend is a big meat eater and he was really impressed with the quality and taste of the food. He had Dragonfly Dumplings to start followed by Szechuan Beef.

The service is friendly and prompt and the waiter was happy to make recommendations. I heard him telling one customer if she didn't like her starter they would change it for something else at no charge!

The food is also very reasonably priced, 2 starters, 2 mains, 1 side and 2 drinks only came to $34!

Heaven for vegetarians!

Vegan Treats desserts, a huge amazing vegan selection on the menu, great drinks! This place is fantastic! Definitely give it a shot, and yes it's tiny and yes you will wait but it's worth it! Trust me!

Great for Vegetarians or people looking for something different. Soy based dishes that tast great. Loved the "Chicken" wings and the nuggets.

this place specilizes in meat-like vegeterian dishes and takes it to levels I never seen before:
everything - from the looks, to the texture, the smells and of course the taste is amazingly similar to meat, chicken and fish (there are many courses for each of the three). I especially recommend the "buffalo wings" but there are many other great stuff.
actually some of the courses were so timilar to the original look and feel of the dead animals that it was even a bit gross:)
