Casual fixture popular with bargain-hunting students for its broad-ranging menu of Thai classics.- Google
"The chicken red curry is good and spicy."
"Kind of cheesy atmosphere with the fish tank on center stage."

I live right down the street and order out from Bamboo Thai all the time (and on occasion eat there). For 2 years I have never gotten sick of their food because it is so delicious and the menu is diverse. Great prices. Great food. Super friendly staff.

I eat here often and have yet to have a bad dish.

The food won't win any awards but is tasty and well priced. Try the duck for an entree and any appetizer (they're all pretty good). Could do with friendlier service, but I'm here to DEVOUR FOOD, not interact with humans.

Very delicious and with plenty of interesting, nonstandard dishes on the menu. Nice ambiance and service as well. It's more of a semi casual place, perhaps not ideal for a first date but good for having a nice meal with someone important to you.

The restaurant is more formal when it comes to Thai food, boasting a full dining room with a fish tank. There is also a drink menu which most family Thai restaurants don't have. The food is on the bland / mild side of the spectrum which is nice if you aren't looking for something heavy. The chicken satay appetizer is a great start to the meal, and is grilled nicely with sides of peanut dipping sauce. I generally stick with the pad thai, which has nice moist noodles and plenty of flavor from the vegetables and chicken. The food tastes great, and you get healthy portions for the price you pay. The staff is also very friendly. I was a bit concerned on my last visit when I bit into an inedible shrimp tail in a curry that was not supposed to have any shrimp in it. I brought it to our server's attention and she said she would figure out what happened but never gave us an answer.

I love this place. It is a little ways away but worth checking out. They have this starter called the Thai Chicken with Peanut Sauce, which is one the best starters I"ve ever had. All the dishes I've had have been scrumptious!

The Pad Thai was subtly seasoned and the appetizer of Crazy Rolls was an interestingly unusual (in a good way) combination of tastes and textures. I walked in for take-out at around six o'clock on a Saturday night, and I had my food, steaming hot, as though freshly prepared, in about ten minutes. It was some of the most serendipitously good take-out I have had in a long time. I had enough leftovers for an excellent Sunday brunch.

Its over-garnished but still good. Parking is kind of hell in this area, but they also deliver. Kind of cheesy atmosphere with the fish tank on center stage. The waitstaff was kind, but I don't know how attentive or competent they are. The food is still quality though.
