Bamboo, Northvale

Noticed this new Asian place in the new Shopping Center in Northvale. The one with Starbucks and Applebees. Place looks slick from the outside. Anyone have a review of the place? Area is in need of a good Asian resto.

  1. It got an OK review in The Record last June. Presumably, service has improved.

    The review is no longer on but you can get a cached one here, while it lasts:

    There is some really good Asian food in Closter, including Midam for Korean, Peking Duck House for Chinese and Mount Kisko for Japanese. Korea Palace is there, too, now that I think about it.

      You left out my favorite, Bill, which is Saigon R in Englewood. I was hoping someone had some first-hand info on Bamboo.

      Peking Duck House? Really? I heard from others that the place is really dingy, in dire need of a makeover both decor wise and food wise. Do you have a recent review that the place is improved now?

        Well yeah, it could use a renovation, but the food is still quite good (based on a visit two years ago). It reminds me of Beijing Duck House in Bergenfield, both in terms of the good food and the worn-out decor.

        I was trying to stay close to Northvale with those suggestions, but yes, Saigon R is excellent, and always has been. Also, Wild Ginger and Akai. My favorite in town, Typhoon, closed last year.
