We hope that you can also feel at home, while enjoying the food, art, and music that fill our street-to-table restaurant. We recently relocated to a larger home in Bushwick.

I made reservations for a group of 4 of my girlfriends. We got here around 7:15p and were seated relatively quickly. The staff here is really nice. Our waiter, Alex, was very accommodating with my drink requests (I was very particular haha). The only con was that service was a bit slow. Aside from that food tasted fresh. Everyone enjoyed their meal. Super chill vibe.

Best Vietnamese food in NYC served up in a funky and casual spot by servers that are attentive but not obnoxiously so. We've followed Bunker from their previous location and are in love with this one!

One suggestion: Fix the front door so that it doesn't slam every time someone enters or exits. It was super annoying and very loud! Also, chicken on the skin for chicken curry was a bit unappetizing. I'd recommend having only chicken for the curry, no skin.

The food was outstanding! We got the whole fish (special), shrimp, and rice/sausage and the limeade cocktail and sake. Everything was so delicious and the service was friendly, funny, and great. Loved it.

I don't remember a bowl of pho being $22 here, and then it was lacking flavor. I know the pandemic has changed things, but if I'm paying $22 for a bowl of pho, it better be so good I can't put my spoon down. I remember a more extensive menu at Bunker, now it seems reduced and a lot of the same flavors in different forms. Vibe is very Brooklyn, but the price is outrageous for a mediocre bowl of pho.

My fiancee and I went to Bunker to try vietnamese food for the first time, and we loved it! We had the vegan papaya salad, the vegetarian vietnamese pancake, the mushroom banh mi, and the vegan noodle soup. Our favorite plate was the vegan papaya salda, and my fiancee loved her vietnamese iced coffee.

The staff is incredible friendly.

I came with my 2-year old son and the staff was very thoughtful and attentive. They sat us at a big and spacious table and were very nice. And, the food is exceptional.

Came in to get their delicious vegetarian Mushroom bánh mì and as always it did not disappoint. Their outdoor seating is spaced more than 6 feet apart and they have heaters which combine with a bowl of the yummy broth made for a very pleasant experience.

Great time! It was my birthday and they allowed me to have my small party of 6 there and it was a great time. Food and drinks on point and the vibes were too. Service was really well and they even gave us some beers on the house since we got poured on by a random monsoon lol

We used to go to Bunker a lot but hadn’t been to the new location. Unfortunately the crepe we lived was really bland and tasteless. The Chinese broccoli side dish was good and the pho was good. I was hoping for a better meal.

Fantastic food. My Baby Yoda drink was adorable and delicious. Muscles were great, but sauce was even better with the baguette side. Beef cubes were a bit chewy but super flavorful. Coconut chicken curry was to die for.

Service was atrocious. We were ambushed by so many different staff throughout the meal. It was overbearing. Too many exchanges of plates, awkward checkups, and miscommunications. I could see it happening with other parties too. Unfortunate that an otherwise phenomenal meal was tainted by extremely subpar service.

Amazing food, service was great Siena, I hope I got her name right. We asked to many questions but she was so helpful. The food was delicious and the whole staff was so helpful. I loved the vibe. The drinks were fun and funky. The cost was on the Brooklyn vibe a bit high but worth it. - Will definitely be back to try some other dishes

What a great find. After seeing them on a TV show we decided to try them for my daughter's birthday. We were NOT disappointed. Each of our four dishes was better than the other. Recommended were the pork chops, and the chicken clay pot. The tofu was delicious as well. You will not be disappointed.

Bunker is great. Open Table over exaggerated the available table times. I wanted 7pm, but open table said only 6:15pm or 9pm available. We took the 6:15pm and walked into an empty restaurant. We laughed but will just call the next time.
