We were celebrating my mom's birthday. All the food was excellent as always. We ordered the shrimp spring rolls and duck spring rolls (one of my favorites), Vietnamese Crepe, Chicken potstickers, Crab & Shrimp Glass Noodles and a cup of soup and side of rice. Everything was fresh and delicious.

We sat outside under a tent covering. It was a bit chilly but great to be outside to see friends and celebrate a birthday.

Lovely experience- only star miss was they had no dessert choices but macaroons because they said the kitchen was closed. Spring Rolls and Steak salad, chicken lettuce wraps were delicious. The Filet Pho was also excellent.

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. 😞
