Thai Restaurant

Situated among the several Thai and Laotian restaurants that call Milwaukee's Silver City neighborhood home, Bamboo is a small, six-table space serving up scratch-made Southeast Asian cuisine. Bold and vibrant like the restaurant's red walls, the authentic dishes here range from beef pho with a rich broth, springy meatballs, and thin-sliced beef (go for the large and it'll last you another two meals) to a Thai red curry with chicken, long beans, eggplant, and basil. The prices are as generous as the portions, making this unassuming storefront a go-to for a cheap workday or weekend lunch.
