I'll start just by stating upfront that the best Thai food in the Columbus area is Siam Orchid. That being said, this place gives them a run for their money. It's very, very close! The Tom Kha blew me away, it was made very well and met my palette with all the right flavor and textures I had hoped for.... More

The Bamboo Cafe is located inside this miraculous strip mall on Bethel Road that contains an a) Indian, b) Korean, c) Greek, d) vegetarian and e) Thai (Bamboo). It is amazing selection for Columbus. And a Vietnamese pho place across the street! I actually started at the Korean restaurant (Ming Ga) but they were closed for a Korean holiday or... More

The food is delicious and service good. It was apparent on our visit that the staff pay close attention to details. I'm already looking forward to going back!

Have gone here twice this weekend because it is so amazing. Have tried to find authentic Thai and Vietnamese food; was sorely disappointed by a place in Westerville. This is the real deal. The mango salad is terrific. The papaya salad is not good if you get it mild -- it needs the spice, so avoid it if you don't... More

We have been here many times and it's always great. It's a small place and it never seems to be very busy so it's nice for a quiet, laid back dinner. The food is good and the staff is friendly.

A friend and I visited this new Vietnamese/Thai restaurant to check it out. The décor is very pleasant (lots of bamboo), clean and tasteful…a good start. The menu offers a wide array of dishes. She had the Thai Crispy Mini Rolls and I had a Spring Roll. Both items were very tasty and fresh. I don’t remember exactly what we... More

Needed a quick take out dinner and my daughter had been here before. Pad Thai was flavorful, noodles perfectly cooked (too often the noodles get pre-cooked at restaurants and then get mushy), sauce was a nice sweet-spicy-tangy. Tofu in it was nicely stir-fried, not greasy. Had a few special requests and all were met. Although we took our food home,... More

Decided to try Bamboo Cafe because hubby and I were in the mood for something different. The tofu appetizer was pretty good but it was main entrees that really made the meal great. The entrees were definitely used authentic Thai ingredients , the meals tasted great and left you wanting to try everything on the menu. Didn't have the opportunity... More

Had a rather mediocre vegetable fried rice with some of the vegetables burned, so the entire dish had a burnt flavor. Pad thai was greasy. Service was lovely but they did not accept Amex. Would not return.

Inside the place is very well decorated and thanks to the live bamboo growing at the front windows its hard to tell that you are sitting in restaurant that is located in a strip mall. And from the outside, you cant even tell what to expect. I met a friend here for lunch on a Sunday. They didnt open right... More
