ORDERING INFORMATION

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. **New** Do you like it Thai Spicy? Ask your server about diamonds. Only for the truly brave.

  • A common misconception is that all Thai food is spicy, which we can abide. However, many dishes can be cooked without any spice at all.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Family-style is a Thai tradition. If you are sharing dishes, you can order the dishes mild and then spice up your plate. Ask your server for our Thai spice tray.
  • We only use authentic imported Thai Rice. Choices are: White Thai Jasmine, Black & Brown, and White Sticky Rice. We also have dessert rice: White Sticky Rice and Black Sticky Rice Pudding.
  • White Thai Jasmine Rice is complimentary with all entrée’s before 3pm each day to promote our lunches.
  • At dinner time rice is not automatically included with all entrees so you must order it separately. Some dishes like Curries, House Specialties, and Dinner Combos come with the rice listed.

TO OUR VEGETARIAN CUSTOMERS:

“Our “Vegetarian Dishes” section is completely free of any ingredients vegetarians might be concerned with including NO shrimp paste and NO fish sauce. We are happy to clearly list ingredients that might be of any concern to our vegetarian friends. Since many of our dishes and sauces are cooked fresh-to-order and our wok cooking is only water based, even more dishes can be enjoyed with small modifications such as no egg or adjusting the sauce to not include fish sauce or shrimp paste. Ask your server for help.The following sauces are vegetarian friendly: “black bean sauce”. “black chili sauce”, “garlic soy sauce”, “ginger dressing”, “ jade sauce”, “lemon mustard sauce”, “phad Thai sauce”, “plum sauce”, “house-made dumpling sauce”, “sweet and sour sauce”, “sweet chili sauce”, “Thai hot basil sauce”, “Massaman curry” and our Thai Bamboo’s signature “peanut sauce”. Of the condiments in our spice tray that you would add yourself, only the “nam pla” isn’t vegetarian because it has fish sauce in it.

GLUTEN FREE DINING:

We now offer 2 levels of Gluten Free options for you to choose from so you can easily decide what option is right for you. The Green GF symbol not only contains all gluten free ingredients, but all ingredients are cooked separately to reduce the risk of cross contamination. The Yellow GF symbol contains all gluten free ingredients, but some ingredients share a common cooking method such as a fryer and may contain some gluten. All items are prepped and prepared in a kitchen that contains some gluten; therefore, we cannot guarantee that any item is completely free of gluten. Please let your server know, so we can be extra cautious.

Thai Cuisine is the leader in gluten free dining because Thailand was the only country in SE Asia to never colonize, so there is very little wheat. With 90% of Thai Bamboo’s menu being naturally gluten free, you dine at Thai Bamboo naturally and classically without any modern modifications. Also guests never pay extra for requesting a dish be made gluten free. FYI- Thai Bamboo only uses gluten free soy sauce.
