The starter: Very few places make spring rolls using filo pastry which is actually what people need to be doing yet are too lazy to. Did I say YUM! YUM! then. Very tasty combination with a dressing/dip to die for. I’m not very good at making Thai food yet but I am well aware of Thai flavours having been to the country 3 times. Very few Thai restaurants serve authentic Thai falvoured food. They try to fool you and it’s easy to get away with but not with me. Soon as we’re done with the starter, Steve heads over to clear our plates and returns just as quick with the main course. So because we were blown away by both the service, the food presentation and the food itself, we completely forgot to take pictures of the main course.
The main: Oh my word, that green curry!!! Like if heaven were to have a taste, I’m pretty sure God would have it taste like this! Wow! The broccoli and asparagus, fresh and crunchy AND extremely flavourful. The coconut curry made to perfection with just the right amount of spice. A lesson to chefs who think veggies have to be cooked for over an hour to get any kind of flavor. I mean It’s generally hard to find a well cooked vegetarian meal anywhere but when you do, you stick to it like white on rice. Which brings me to: The jasmine rice was cooked to perfection and complimented the green curry to a tee. I must say if you’re not a big eater then the starter and the main course would definitely be more than enough. I couldn’t finish my main course because I had just enough room left for dessert.
The dessert: The mango mousse was just the perfect ending to a perfect evening, Refreshing and invigorating giving me just enough energy to get home and dream mango dreams.
My date had the chicken red curry and Chocolate mouse dessert and had nothing but praise for all the food and service as well.
I’ll give Bamboo a rating of 9/10 and would recommend it to both vegetarians and omnivores alike.
