Black Bamboo is our take-out of choice and there are many places to choose from. It always seems the portions are bigger. If there is a shrimp dish you have good sized shrimp. They will also change up an order for you, substitute vegetables if...More

There are several delicious vegan options here. The vegan ribs are great. We really like the vegan general tso's chicken. The service is always great!

this is a fantastic quick fresh asian type food place.The menu is extensive and good. A local kid started it and it should do well for a good while. If looking for fresh veggies and such you can't go wrong

Great variety of Chinese vegetarian dishes and decent prices. Mostly take out. They cook to order so you get what you want.

Everyone is loving this place, but I had a different experience. First of all they said it would be an hour before ready not a problem. My husband arrives fifteen minutes early with the line out the door. He actually waited awhile and then asked...More

A friend , who lives nearby, recommended it. I was passing by on my way home - so, I couldn't resist. Simple menu - very good for GF( gluten-free) folks. Not really suited for dining-in unless you're by yourself and like to people watch. Expedient...More
