I stumbled upon this gem by accident. I was looking for a great vegetarian restaurant to take my mate to for his birthday. as you may have guessed he's a vegetarian. I had no clue as to where to go.I saw this place and decided to give it a try, now we go when ever we can get to the village. he loved it and i (who love my burgers) adore it. my favorite dishes are the mashed potatoes, the collard greens and the collard green rolls. OH MY GOD they put any oriental spring,egg or shrimp roll to shame. absolutely out rageously delectable. and the deserts are just as great. i had there version of a strawberry short cake and it was heaven. the ice cream is wonderful as well. and there is no dairy in anything. I would never have guessed All i can say is you have to get there try a little of every thing. My only complaint is that they need to expand it is quite small, but the staff is very nice they make you feel welcome. So go you won't be sorry, Oh and don't forget to take some of those collard green rolls home for later with the sauce for dipping, you'll be glad you did!

This vegan-friendly restaurant is hands-down my favorite and first choice whenever meat-eaters or non-meat eater friends come to visit. The service isn't always the best, but the food more than makes up for it in a thousand and one ways. The deserts are to die for - esp the peanut butter pies!

I took my meat-eating Father to Red Bamboo because I have been there so many times and he loved it! We shared a variety of appetizers to get a little taste of everything. The wait-staff is a really nice, young group of people. The atmosphere is very intimiate and inviting. This place is for everyone!

My husband and I (we're both vegan, but we've taken non-vegans here too) go to Red Bamboo whenever we can... we absolutely LOVE the food here! Our favorites are the Tandoori unchicken (which doesn't quite taste like chicken, but that's ok with us, since we're not looking to replace a meat dish, but instead have a dish that's wonderful in its own right) and the "salmon" (again, doesn't taste like salmon, as far as I can remember). Try the brownie bottom cheesecake - the BEST dessert we've ever had! The wait may be annoying when you're really hungry, but you're never disappointed once your meal is finished! Also, try Vegetarian's Paradise (almost next door) for a wider (and different) menu... but we still like Red Bamboo better -- the dishes that we've tried are spicier!

Wonderful food, wonderful service! Went w/2 meat eater friends who were amazed that it wasn't real meat. The only downfall is the size and wait. However, because I read the reviews I was completely prepared for a long wait which didn't make it seem so bad.

Like everyone else here, I wish Red Bamboo were bigger--a lot bigger. Not the place to bring a large party, and not the place to come if you're absolutely starving because you're probably going to wait to be seated. However, it will be worth the wait! Bourbon chicken, buffalo wings, even the faux shrimp are all fantastic; my non-veggie friends from Virginia still cannot stop talking about Red Bamboo. And while I understand the objection of some vegetarians to "faux" meat, chicken, fish, etc., I'm not in that camp and don't mind at all. This place bills itself as "vegetarian soul food" and waddya know, it certainly is!

This place has extremely good food. My husband who stays away from "fake meat" and eats mostly meat, could not stop raving how great the food is. We went there twice and both times were consistently delicious. The only complaint i have is that it's a really small room.
