Thia Bamboo opened a larger restaurant on the north side of Spokane not too long ago and Geo and I finally had a chance to go there, for dessert! We ate Deep Fried Banana with Banana Ice Cream and Black Rice Pudding with Coconut Ice Cream.... Yum!
I think a part of me has been reluctant to come to this restaurant because it is such a monstrosity from the street. Seriously, Thia Bamboo on N. Division street used to be just a little quant restaurant... easy to miss if you are driving by too fast. Apparently when they undertook the endeavor to build anew, they wanted everyone's attention. Here it is at night:
(They apparently do not want people to miss this place.)
Inside there is a bar area and a restaurant area... and there is outside seating too. We sat inside.
Now, I have known several people who have come here and the only thing anyone told me was that it was "good food but a little expensive." No one told me about this:
The outside of the building is a little much, if you ask me.... One thing is certain, if you are looking for it, and maybe even if you are not, you wont miss it! The address is 5406 N Division St, and their website: http://www.thaibamboorestaurant.com if you want to see a menu.
