We visited Red Bamboo on a Tuesday evening around 6pm in late April and were lucky enough to get a table right away. The place is small and they don't take reservations so you're best bet at getting a table seems to be by coming...More

Dropped in whilst walking by. Great food. Great service. What more could you want? What's really annoying is TripAdvisor forcing me to write more characters before I can submit this review. Really frustrating when a company tries to control what you can or can't do....More

The place is not too big and simple. This my issue with most vegan places. They are sparsely furnished and more like take out places. The food selection is huge and delicious. I tried the chicken with coconut and it's crunchy, delicious and tasty. Cashew...More

Amazing food. Cheap. Great service. A must go. Even meat eaters would be bluffed away, especially any "chicken" food. The chicken cajun was so tasty!

I made an effort to visit Red Bamboo after reading the testimonials on here. I could not have been happier. As a relatively new vegan (6months) I am already used to having limited choices when looking at a menu so upon sitting down I was...More

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
neighbourhood. You’ll find NYU students, street
performers, skateboarders, kids frolicking in the
fountain, and locals relaxing and playing chess.
