Bamboo Thai Restaurant uses fresh ingredients to craft a savory menu of authentic Thai cuisine. Ease into a culinary marathon with warm-ups such as the spicy thai wings, served with a cooling mango dipping sauce ($4.95). The pan-seared chili salmon comes fresh from the Atlantic and makes itself at home by stretching out on a bed of rice adorned with vegetable throw pillows ($14.95). A dish of drunken noodles combines assorted veggies with flat noodles in a spicy garlic chili sauce ($9.35), while the thai barbecue chicken, a cornish game hen accompanied by barbecue spices and papaya salad, unites Eastern and Western techniques, much like a banjo-strumming samurai ($12.95).
A selection of desserts, such as coconut fried ice cream and a lemon raspberry torte ($4.95 each), stand by to bring the meal to a sweet close. Diners embark on their gastronomic journeys between bright yellow walls lined with colorful artwork in Bamboo Thai's well-lit, charm-school-educated dining room.
Bamboo Thai Restaurant
The chefs at Bamboo Thai Restaurant developed a menu that gives diners complete control over their gustatory experience, from the level of spiciness to the type of noodles accompanying their dish. Five distinct curries—red, green, yellow, panang, and massaman—pair with the guest's selection of one of nine proteins and one of 10 rice or noodle options, including udon, buckwheat, and vermicelli, resulting in more dinner options than a socialite's rolodex. The noodle selection process crops up again when ordering one of the six meal-in-a-bowl soups, and five pad thai options dare taste buds to pick from vegetables, chicken, shrimp, or a combination of all three, with rice or crispy egg noodles. To complement spicy bites, a lengthy list of Thai, Japanese, and American beers stands next to warm and draft sakes.
