Bamboo Thai Bistro – Asian Oasis in Oklahoma

I ate here with some friends tonight and I have to say, I am impressed with the quality of the food.  I wasn’t confident that I would find good Thai food in Tulsa, but this place really does a great job.  I won’t go so far as to say it is the most authentic Thai food I’ve ever had, but the flavors were really good, portions were of a healthy size and the staff was very friendly and helpful.
