I have trouble with this as while the food tasted delicious, it was a little heavy and waiter didn't know if they used MSG. Pretty certain they did.

This is a great little restaurant and I often order from here using door dash. The Seabass is their specialty and is usually very good. However, I noticed that yesterday, it wasn't quite as fresh as I expect. I'm not saying that I think it was past the expiration date, but just not as fresh as it could have been.

I've been to Bamboo Bistro many times and usually the food is excellent, but on this day the chicken in the chicken salad was tough and stringy and the service ok. Will definitely go back, it might have been just an off day for everyone. 😞

We've been coming here for many years and this place just gets better (if possible!). My husband lived in Thailand for 5 years so he knows good authentic Thai food and this is it!

Worse Vietnamese spring roll ever. Had it most of the time. This is the worst. Shrimp (boiled not fried shrimp paste) is not fresh. Taste like avocado roll not shrimp roll. Pork paste too salty. Spring roll is so small, half of what it normally is. Not even fun. Will not go for a long time.

Bamboo Bistro is a gem. How do they manage to serve so many dinners, including take-away, with good-quality food and fast service? We went on a Saturday evening, and crowded as it was, they accommodated our reservation within 5-10 minutes. We all ate with gusto, every dish tasty and fresh. We commented on how easy it was to have conversation, despite the business of the place. We are happy to go back again and again.

They did not have my Open Table reservation, said it had happened to others today too. Had to wait 30 minutes for a table, very crowded and unpleasant. Understaffed. Overrun with takeout orders.

Don’t know if I can trust open table anymore.

Bamboo Bistro is a charming place with great food and good prices. They are very busy, you need a reservation and it can be crowded. But the food is good and the service is also very attentive and helpful. I would easily recommend it to my friends.
