Bambu - North Dallas / Richardson - Incredible New Thai Restaurant!

My family tried a new Thai restaurant in our neighborhood the other night. It is at the corner of Coit and Campbell hidden behind a Starbucks and a Qdoba. I am so glad we found it. The food and service were both top notch. The menu and daily specials are not just your run of the mill Thai entries either. There are many authentic dishes and they are even off menu items that they will make if you ask. I was with my two young kids so we played it pretty safe so they would eat everything. We tried the dumplings, ribeye/mushroom and ribeye/scallion skewers, clams basil, grilled whole calamari, pad see eew, and the Bambu special (crab) fried rice. The dumplings were not my favorite but my family loved them. The ribeye was seasoned and cooked perfectly. Clams basil had great flavor and was a fun dish. The grilled calamari was a pleasant change from the fried version. It came with two dipping sauces. One sweet and one spicy. Both were very tasty. Pad See Eew was the best I've had in DFW. The tartness of the chinese broccoli really balanced well with the sweet but not too sweet sauce. The Bambu special fried rice, with lump crab meat in it, was awesome. I'd put it up there with Shinsei as the best fried rice I've had in town. BYOB is always a plus too. Definitely give this place a try and tell your friends about it. They are in a tough location and I would really like to see them to succeed.

You can see from the early yelp reviews that people are really enjoying it.
