Recently tipping laws have changed and we are no longer allowed to give any tips to our kitchen workers. Because of this there will be a 2% kitchen service charge added to all menu items. 100% of this charge goes directly to our kitchen workers as additional income and extra recognition for a job well done. This change is effective in Washington locations only. More info…

ALL ABOUT Spiciness, Ordering, and Our Rice:

 

Food is ordered on a 0 to 5 level. With 0 stars being not spicy and 5 stars being very spicy.

  • A common misconception is that all Thai food is spicy hot and we can abide! However most Thai food can be cooked without any spice at all, just ask for it that way.
  • If you are sharing dishes (family-style), you can order the dishes mild and then spice up your plate. Just ask your server for our Thai spice tray.
  • Some dishes listed on the menu have one or two stars by their name. They automatically come prepared slightly spicy and cannot be ordered less than the number indicated.
  • We only use authentic imported Thai Rice. Choices are: White Thai Jasmine, Black & Brown, White Sticky Rice and a dessert styled Black Sticky Rice.
  • At dinner time rice is not automatically included with all entrees and you must order it separately if you want rice. Some dishes like Curries, House Specialties, Lunch and Dinner Combos come with the rice listed.
  • White Thai Jasmine Rice is complimentary with all entrée’s before 3pm each day to promote our lunches.

 

Gluten Free DINING:

Thai cuisine is the leader of Gluten Free dining with an interesting story behind it. There is very little wheat in Thailand, why…because it was never colonized. Being the only country in SE Asia with that distinction, wheat never made it into the native food dishes as it did with the colonized countries. So when you dine gluten free at Thai Bamboo you are doing so naturally and classically without any modern modifications.

TO OUR Vegetarian & Vegan CUSTOMERS:

LOOK AT OUR VEGETARIAN SECTION AND ALSO ALL DISHES NOTED WITH THE (VF symbol) SYMBOL CAN BE VEGETARIAN FRIENDLY IF YOU ASK FOR THEM TO BE MADE WITHOUT EGG

Thai Bamboo has always been about healthy eating. We are happy to clearly list ingredients that would be a concern of our vegetarian and vegan friends. Our “Vegetarian Dishes” section is completely free of any ingredients any type of vegetarian or vegan would be concerned with including NO shrimp paste and NO fish sauce. And because most all our dishes are cooked fresh-to-order and our wok cooking is only water based, many other dishes can also be enjoyed by looking at the sauces we use in each dish. Additionally some dishes can be made without shrimp paste or fish sauce, ask your server. The following sauces are vegetarian friendly and free of shrimp paste or fish sauce: “black bean sauce”, “black chili sauce”, “garlic soy sauce”, “ginger dressing”, “lemon mustard sauce”, “Phad Thai sauce”, “plum sauce”, “house-made dumpling sauce”, “sweet and sour sauce”, “sweet chili sauce”, “Thai hot basil sauce”, “vegetarian curry sauce”. And FYI our “peanut sauce” has no fish sauce but does have a tiny bit of shrimp paste in it. And of the 3 condiments in our spice tray that you would add yourself, one of them the “nam pla” has fish sauce in it.

Gluten Free & Food Allergies:

ALL DISHES WITH THE SYMBOL ARE GLUTEN FREE.

At Thai Bamboo, we’re committed to making every guest’s dining experience an exceptional one, including our guests with food allergies. The Thai Bamboo menu lists ingredients used in each dish. We rely on our various suppliers’ statements of ingredients for listing certain allergens. Please make sure to inform your server of your specific dietary needs when ordering so that Thai Bamboo can accommodate your requests. Since our dishes are prepared fresh-to-order at Thai Bamboo, our normal kitchen operations may involve shared cooking and preparation areas. Therefore, we cannot guarantee that any menu item can be completely free of allergens.
