    Huge variety of vegan dishes! The buffalo wings are crazy good! Everything we tried was delicious!

    Red Bamboo makes the best vegan wings I've had, and I consider myself an aficionado. They are crispy and chewy, fatty and saucy, and one order of them is enough for a meal. Read more

    I'm an omnivore but this place is heaven on earth. If eating vegetarian / vegan were always this easy and delicious then I'd convert in a second. Their chicken parm dish with vegan cheese is YUM AF

    Been twice so far and can't wait to go again. The popcorn 'shrimp' is a amazing and eerily realistic and the sweet and sour chicken is my favorite entree so far. They also have vegan milkshakes!

    Loved their chicken mango! Only prob was that I gave a tip (15% of my bill-im a college student) and the waitress came back and demanded more. As a server myself I was shocked! That is unprofessional!

    Meat-like vegan dishes. Having grown up on a vegetarian diet I was slightly sceptical at first, but they converted me on the first bite of the "chicken wings". The staff is incredibly friendly, too!

    Get the Buffalo wings as appetizer. Really good, but also a huge portion. For a single person this would suffice as a full meal. Brownie cheesecake was very tasty too! Helpful and friendly staff.

    It's a small place but the vegan Asian / soul dishes are actually decently priced compared to most vegan places! They're quite tasty, and the fries are like crack. Will definitely return again.

    I was not attracted by the meat names of vegan plates. But there are plenty of Veggie entrees and pasta. My Thai curry was excellent! Place is small so you might have a wait. Loved the colorful decor

    The first place I take my out of town vegans. If youre into fake meat, this is your spot. Wine is well priced, but beware--the desserts are really really sweet. I usually split appetizers with a group

    Food tastes like it was taken directly from the frozen section at whole foods and cooked very systematically. Rubbery and synthetic textures.

    The butterfly pork chops, Creole soul chicken and the seafood fried rice are yummy! The collards w/ ham is the bomb! The steak sandwich's sauce was a little toooo tangy for me, but it was still good!

    "Soulful dishes such as the Creole-style fried “chicken,” doused in mushroom gravy with a side of sweet corn mashed potatoes, really satisfy. This place is down-home."

    Eh. If you're a new vegetarian or new to vegetarian comfort food you might enjoy, but overall the food was really bland and uninspired. Absolutely no spice on the "buffalo wings" at all.

    This veggie spot makes every top 5 list of vegetarian restaurants. Your non-vegetarian friends will enjoy the Roti Canai or the Chicken Parmesan which comes with either melted dairy or vegan cheese.

    Some of the best vegetarian in the city. Go early and you'll have no problem getting a table. Most dishes are Asian-based/flavored but all of it's good. I prefer their tempeh to the soy-based 'meats'

    Un poco caro, pero delicioso. Las alitas y los nuggets como entrada están muy bien y satisfacen. Lo verdaderamente imperdible son los postres: helado de pistache y el cheesecake de chocolate blanco.
