Respond to Review of Bamboo Garden Vegetarian Cuisine

Review: We were so pleased to be able to park in Bamboo's parking lot for free in this crazy busy part of Seattle. When we came in, the staff immediately cleaned a booth for the two of us, even though there were plenty of empty tables, and we hadn't even asked for a booth! The Mongolian beef was amazing - sweet and flavoured with cilantro, yummy and chewy, it beats my former favourite ginger beef dish from Buddha's in Calgary. We loved this dish so much, we're still craving it. It's always pleasing to be able to get brown rice instead of white at a chinese restaurant. The Stewed mushrooms with stuffed Vegetable roll in Satay Peanut sauce was not so good - the mushrooms were rubbery, there were a few peanuts in there but it didn't taste very peanutty. We ordered this "hot pot" dish to get a healthier choice to go with the fried and sweet mongolian beef. Now I'm sorry I didn't have the lemon chicken instead. As an appatizer we had the crispy fried taro root patties - the menu says they are "spiced", but they were bland, squishy and uninteresting, a waste of $4.95 Service was good and our dishes came quickly, we were there for dinner late around 8. If I didn't live so far away, I would go there again for the Mongolian beef alone and try some more dishes.

I have had great experiences at Bamboo Garden (introduced to me by an omni boyfriend, of all people!), but we once made the grave mistake of ordering the terrible taro root patties, too. A dark spot in a sea of otherwise good experiences.
