“Perfect Vegan Evening”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 10, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

The food at Red Bamboo is consistently great. I have not had one bad thing off the menu. There are many options and one is better than the next. I love the ice cream floats also. A great place to take your vegan friends or people who are lactose intolerant or really anyone because the food is very tasty. It is also in a wonderful location very close to Washington Square Park and NYU. Cozy space with very nice servers. No pretentious better than thou attitudes like at some of the other vegan hotspots.

“Great food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 16, 2013

Not the fanciest setting but can't knock the food - heaps of variety on offer, friendly service and loved our food. Probably a better spot for lunch than dinner.
Thumbs up!

If you're a vegan in ny and want a treat - go here- I cannot recommend more highly as a veggie for thirty years - no beans and quinoa here, its all indulgence and yummyness!!!

“Great Choice for Vegetarians”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 8, 2013

I had a hard time choosing what to eat at Red Bamboo. The coconut and almond crusted mock chicken for an appetizer was amazing. I got the Vegan Southern Fried Chicken for an entree- the chicken itself was huge and really good, but the sides were a little weak. I think there are better vegetarian restaurants in the city, but for the price and choice options Red Bamboo really can't be beat.

“Good Veggie Food at Good Prices”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013

I sometimes work in this area and have a handful or restaurants I visit for lunch. Red Bamboo is one of them. The service is always friendly and you can't beat the price for a lunch or dinner entree. Just as a warning the restaurant is small and can get pretty crowded on the weekends, but the wait is generally short for takeout. Don't forget to try out their yummy selection of desserts.
