...Bamboo Fire Café is the Caribbean food of the people. All the people! What a wondrous find in Delray Beach after exiting Devour Brewing Company and in need of some sustenance. Small place, very modest but with a great Caribbean list of delightful dishes to choose from: Chicken, you can have it Jerk, curry, grilled or escoveitch (pickled vegetables), Basa... More

We went here with a group of 8 adults and 2 small kids. The food was incredible! There were multiple vegetarian options. The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable about the menu. The environment is casual/relaxed. I'd highly recommend this restaurant.

Went here for dinner with my missus while on holiday and while I enjoyed the food my wife didn't. I started with curried chick peas which were delicious, my wife started with curried lentil soup which turned out be a plate of curry sauce which you normally associate with Chinese curry and chips which I must admit was pretty vile....

We experienced a wonderful dinner here. The food is a delight and the owners are lovely people who were more than happy to discuss their menu with us and the various spices used in their cooking. We are vegans and they have plenty of wonderful, flavorful options for us. Their curry was just great. A little bit of a kick... More

Found this restaurant and decided to try it and so glad we did. The curry goat and roti was delicious! The owner was friendly and the restaurant was cozy. We will definitely add this to our list of go to places to eat!

Great food and flavor for everyone. Feeding 2 vegans and 3 meat eaters with flavor is tough. Coconut tofu was crisp outside and soft on inside. Oxtail was deep and meaty. Snapper curry had some spice and sweet. Plantains. Tontines. All great. A few beers to go with it. Awesome.

A little out of the way dive that you would expect Guy Fieri to visit. The grouper wrapped in banana leaves was awesome as well as the coconut shrimp. We loved the salad. Good food and Lauren was great also!

I traveled throughout the Caribbean extensively while in the military and have longed for the flavors since leaving 20 years ago, seeing I live in the deep South in America. No where has come close to duplicating what I remembered, except......Bamboo Fire. On top of the bomb Curry Grouper (recommended by the waitress, because I was going for the Jerk),... More

Bamboo Fire Cafe is a Five Star "get authentic homemade Caribbean food" gem that is unlike any of the overpriced, over-hyped, pompous, sterile restaurants on Atlantic Avenue. This is a husband and wife run team that personally greets every customer that is lucky enough to grab one of their limited tables. They are located on 4th Avenue a few blocks... More
