Food is great, waiters are indifferent. soul chicken and chicken parm are incredible; all of the faux meats are really, really good. definitely worth the ridiculously long wait and cold shoulder from hipster-waitstaff.

The food was good. The atmosphere was comfortable. I never knew imitation chicken could taste so good. The place is a little cramped though so don't bring all 11 of your closest friends.

The food is very very good, esp. the fish sticks (fake). The protions are good sized and the prices are a little high. The service is good but the place is very crowded and somewhat noisy. The desserts are beyond overpriced. :(.

I had the pleasure of visiting red bamboo about 2 weeks ago. First of all, I am not a vegetarian, but I love food. I had the butterfly soy chops and the collard greens. Excellent!!! The brownie crusted cheesecake and the chocolate covered strawberry shortcake is off the hook. I have been recommending this place to everyone that I know since I went. Check this place out and take a friend, you will not be disappointed.

The food is absolutely remarkable. I would have to say that I fell head over heels in love with the cajun fried shrimp. How is it possible to make "pseudo" shrimp tastes almost exactly like the real thing? Yes, I realize that the creole soul chicken is the prize item on the menu, but don't sleep on the barbeque buffalo wings or dante's cuisine. I mean the texture of the food is very similar to it's meat counterpart. And the desserts, what can I say about vegan oreo cheesecake, vegan mint chocolate chip milkshakes, or vegan peanut butter tandy cake... SCRUMDILIUMPTIOUS...

This is by far the best vegetarian/vegan restaurant in all of NYC. Angelica Kitchen, Candle Cafe are good, but no where NEAR the quality of Red Bamboo. The Creole Soul Chicken was amazing. The vegan pistachio milk shake was out of this world! I sure hope they open a restaurant in Philadelphia.

This restaurant never fails to please. It is some of the best vegan food in the city with generous portions. Always pleases non-veggie types, who are surprised at how good the mock meat dishes are, and out of towners. The regular waitresses are fantastic and over-worked. But on a recent Saturday night the seating hostess informed us that (once again) they had run out of desserts. When we suggested they have more on hand for the weekend she very rudely suggested we eat there on a Tuesday when they deliver the desserts! No apology; no thanks for the suggestion, we'll look into it. Red Bamboo, you're great! Tell your employees to be nice especially to your regulars.
