    Brooklyn location is better

    I've been to both Red Bamboo locations, and i love the food at both. However, the Village location was a disappointment compared to the Fort Greene Bklyn location. The Brooklyn location is beautiful, to start, with an outdoor patio and cooshy seats. The service is amazing, especially from the blonde server with glasses who always treats you like his only customer. After having the great service experiences in Fort Greene, the village location seemed like just another restaurant with lazy and jaded servers. I'll never go back to the Manhattan location! So, being a server in Manhattan myself, I'm telling you it's worth the $4 roundtrip MTA fare to the Lafayette C for wonderful experience at the Fort Greene Red Bamboo.

    You can't be vegetarian and not eat here!

    I moved to NYC for this restaurant (no, really)- the food is amazing, the service is outstanding, the portions are HUGE, desert specials are always amazing. I wish there was a little bit more space for seating, there is usually a 30+ minute wait on weekend evening, and it sometimes gets cramped sitting close to other customers--but the food is so (so) worth it.

    Amazing food, just a little pricy

    This place is absolutely amazing - my friends and I are rarely disappointed. Really expensive to go often, but for a special occasion, this place is just right. Try the Belgian beers!

    Great food!

    I went here last night with my boyfriend and I LOVED it! I got the vegan chicken parm and while the vegan cheese, as always, is not perfect, the actual "chicken" was amazing!!! I would not have been able to tell that it was actually soy! So yummy...We also got a great vegan carrotcake taht was to die for! My boyfriend, on the other hand, was not so pleased. He is a devout omni and, adventurously, ordered his favorite food, philly cheesesteak, and was disappointed by the taste of the vegan version. I tried it and it wasn't bad, but I would still urge people who really want the taste of meat to go with their superb chicken dishes. Overall a great place for a great value (all dishes will feed you twice--they're huge!) I will definitely go bakc and you should all try it (even those of you vegans out there who are so skeptical of fake meats...)

    Take-out was very ehh

    I called in for pickup take-out and they told me 20 min. Arrived around that time and ended up waiting another 10-15! Thirty-five min is really unacceptable for take-out. The restaurant wasn't even full! I thought maybe the food would mollify me. The collard green roll was ok, but not that exciting or different from any other spring roll. The sweet chili sauce for dipping was incredible though! (i'm a sauce fiend.) I ordered the honey dijon chicken cutlet sandwich, which was ok, not that great, and the whole thing slipped and slided and fell apart while i was eating it. Admittedly, maybe I just didn't order the dishes that people have been raving about in reviews. The atmosphere seemed nice and people seemed in good spirits. The waitresses also seemed really accomodating from what I saw. But I also saw a number of customers come in and change their mind and leave when the heard how long the wait would be for food.

    2 Serve w/Love

    The restaurant was cramped w/chic atmosphere and the 45 min. wait was well worth it. This is FOOD 4 all and all 4 Vegans. Ab. Fabulous. Will go every week, as long as dates continue.
