    Bamboo Bistro is one of Anacortes’ Best little hidden Gems!
    Tucked away on the right side of the very top of Commercial, immediately after the round about, and sharing a building with a Motel, this humble little restaurant sits in an easy to miss location, and to the unsuspecting eye, might not at first seem very appealing… but if you, like so very many of us brave & fortunate locals, take a chance and walk inside, you will discover that delicious food comes in small, flavor-packed packages!
    With a menu full of lovingly prepared dishes ranging from Vietnamese Pho, Spicy Curries, endless varieties of Noodle dishes, heaping helping of rice dishes, and a local fan favorite: The Chicken Phad Thai (I -HIGHLY- recommend you order this dish with a side of their Mind-blowing Peanut Sauce, it’s a match made in Heaven!!!) and not to mention the great Customer Service provided by their staff, there is no way you cannot win by dining like a local at the wonderful Bamboo Bistro!!!

    Authentic Thai flavors. Sweet little place with good-quality food and varied menu. The beef salad was intensely flavorful, crisp, and satisfying.

    We decided to drive out to Anacortes for date night. We are pretty obsessed with Thai food so when I we drive by this place it was a no brainer. Its attached to The Islamds Inn hotel.
    I think that entire set up is great. An quaint little hotel with a restaurant right downstairs.
    The food was phenomenal. First we started with edamame & Chickem Satay. They were perfect
    Then I had the Chicken pho, which was everything you want in a hot bowl of soup. The chicken was boiled, i think, which gave it a juicy texture. Mixing in the basil is my favorite part of Pho, its so aromatic and truly brings out the rest of the flavors My husband had the Supreme Cashew Nut. His had beautiful carrots, red and green bell peppers, zucchini and lots or Cashews. Oh he loved it!

    Both of our meals had fresh veggies & yummy spices. It was an all around deliciously fantastic meal.

    Giving it 3 stars. Reasons are, 1. Place is poorly ventilation , 2. Hot and humid even with one house fan blowing, 3. Food taking really long to get, and 4. Pad Thai was really sweet even with a whole lime was added to it. But I think the food is ok just not a good spot in my opinion..

  5. Barbara Gaffney

    We have gotten take out many times. The food is excellent. I highly recommend their 3 flavor’s salmon and the fried rice. We have also enjoyed the pho and the Tom Kha. My only complaint is that the container sometimes leaks.

  6. Yolanda Edwards

    This restaurant came up as “vegan” on Google and it wasn’t, however, i was able to substitute meat for tofu and still get some amazing food!!

  7. Darhla Roberts

    We had a very good lunch with pad thai and garlic chicken. The hostess was extremely friendly and helpful. We will definitely go back!

  8. Juan Garcia

    My wife and I loved the food and the folks who work there were very friendly. We plan to eat there before we leave Anacortes (Beautiful place).

    Nice homey setting with affordable tasty food. This is definitely comfort food after a long day exploring the San Juan islands. The pad kra pow and spare ribs were flavorful. There were also some Vietnamese options but we didn’t try them. Staff were friendly and inviting. Definitely check this place out for Thai food in Anacortes!

    So I lived in Seattle most of my life and always went to the same place for Pho . I have been super hesitant to try it anywhere else but we just moved to Oak harbor and I work in Anacortes. So after almost 2 years I said well I need to try ! I was not disappointed ! Nice and hot had all the fixins too ! My only minor complaint would be the portion needed a bit nore meat and noodles. The place i used to go to had a large tub of soup that you could bath a small animal in lol ! But no worries i left full and happy. The lady that served me was very kind and concerned I was enjoying my lunch . That goes a long way too! I’ll definitely be back and I will bring the Family next time ! Thank you !

    The food is pretty great. They got more than the standard Asian restaurant youd find.

    Also, get the phad kee mao (probly butchered the spelling) it’s so wonderful it’s not even funny. They’re these wide rice noodles and they’re so perfect lol, trust me on that one.

  12. Emra Vietna

    Delicious! And the service was excellent! Husband and I got Pad Thai and pho, both were excellent, great portions, I’m excited to go back!

  13. Opal M

    The person taking the orders and making food took my request for spice seriously 💗 usually when I ask for 5 spice and stress that I want it to be actually spicy, it’s still about a 2 or 3 which is always a disappointment.

  14. Tasha D

    Cannot compute common core addition, let alone make a split transaction without over charging and charging someones card 3-4 times or make a simple card refund. I called my order in an hr and a half early and it was the most difficult thing make a 34$ transaction. i could give this place 0 stars i would. Absolute trash service.

  15. Tula Bagwell

    Excellent service! Wonderful jasmine tea and peanut sauce! I got the chicken pad Thai and was very satisfied!

  16. Andrew Yarbrough

    We stopped by here after checking out the local wolf sanctuary. Awesome food and great service. Only regret is that we don’t live local and can’t come here all the time!

  17. Sy Pendergast

    AMAZING food and great service, we stop here every single time we come to Anacortes.

  18. Rita Darnell

    Delicious appetizer sampler, pineapple duck and Thai tea. Love the small restaurant and friendly atmosphere.

    Our favorite in town! Amazing flavor- great service.
    Great for getting pho brunch too

  21. Gretchen Comstock

    Excellent phad thai and basil thai! Best Thai food in a long time ! Very authentic flavors, really fresh ingredients ! Great service!

    Update: We ordered the same dishes the very next day, Thai Basil chicken and PhadThai chicken, and they did not look the same and were not as good. It was a different cook, and it was as if they each have their own recipe. We also based the spice level on the day before, bad idea because it was way different. They really need to work on consistency between chefs. They should be the same meals and quality every time! We were a little disappointed! Changing my rating from 5 to 4. I would change to 3 if it were entirely based on the 2nd experience, but because the first was outstanding I will leave it at 4. I think this place has tons of potential, I will come again, I just hope they can improve the consistency.

    Delicious combo. Decently priced. Everything made to order. This is a hidden jewel if you love Thai food!
