A taste of Thai that'll leave you asking for more
Bamboodle has been a personal favourite since it opened in 2005. Located beneath Event Cinemas, on Church Street, Parramatta, it's a restaurant that serves a culinary delight of Thai cuisine, ranging from Pad Thai to Green Curry and Tom Yum Soup.

The restaurant allows customers to choose their own meat, vegetables, sauce and noodle/rice. The chefs cook fresh to order, ensuring taste and texture match the selected combination. The serving size is large, especially for a dish around the $12.50 mark and the taste will bring you back again and again. The dessert menu is a little lacking, consisting only of Roti and Banana in Coconut Milk with a recent new addition - Frozen Yoghurt. However, after such a large main, it might be difficult to fit in dessert anyway, so it's not a real negative.

My personal Bamboodle Favourite: Chicken Pad See Ew.

There is only a short wait for the food to cook and the waitress is quick to serve it out. Water is self-served from the filtered tap, otherwise there is a selection of soft drinks and iced tea and coconut juice.

The restaurant exudes a warm glow due to the lanterned lighting and the wooden furnishing with cushioned benches give a modern look. During summer, the windows that make up one wall fold open, creating a great outdoor dining feel, whilst still sitting in the comfort of the indoors.

Bamboodle has a warm atmosphere with contemporary decor.

It can get pretty busy in this restaurant, especially on Friday nights and the weekend, but the turnover is quick so it's never a long wait for a seat. There is also takeaway available and look out for special movie deals that give you a discounted meal after presenting your movie ticket.

Parking is available at Westfield Parramatta (3 hours free), but take note, it can be difficult finding a spot during certain times of the weekend and Thursday/Friday nights.

Overall, Bamboodle serves excellent Thai food, with large servings at decent prices without compromising in taste. It's a recommended place to try for all Thai enthusiasts.
