Bamboo Garden Reviewed by Perry Crabill on . On Thursday, August 4, 2016, I had dinner at the Bamboo Garden Chinese Restaurant in the Gateway Plaza Shopping Center near Winchester, Virginia, on Berryville Pike, Route 7 east of I-81 Exit 315. It’s located at 419 Gateway Drive, Suite 105, and occupies a single module in this building. Hours are Monday-Thursday, 11:00 AM-10:00 PM; Friday & Saturday, 11:00 AM-11:00 PM; Sunday, 11:30 AM-10:00 PM. It has dine-in and carry-out service, and delivery is available with a $10.00 minimum. The phone number is (540) 722-0770. The entrance has no vestibule, and opens into a single small room. The floor tiles are a light color and about a foot square. The ceiling is acoustic and also a light color and there are windows in the front. Decorations are limited to clusters of hot peppers hanging on the walls in several places around the room. There are no booths, and seating is at a few tables for four along the front window and the left side wall. I heard no music and there are no TV screens. An L-shaped counter to the right toward the back fronts the kitchen, which can be seen behind it. Illuminated displays above the counter show food pictures and an abbreviated menu listing Special Combinations orders. A waitress was sitting in the back and a man was behind the counter, but no one greeted me or offered me a menu after I sat down at a front table. I finally went to the counter, picked up a menu, and went back to look it over. Categories were Appetizers, Soup, Rice & Noodle, House Specialties, Chicken, Beef, Seafood, Pork, Vegetable, Egg Foo Young, Chow Mein or Chop Suey, Diet Menu, and Special Combination Platters. Each individual item had a number, and most are available as small or large orders. I returned to the counter and ordered a small No. 112 from the Chicken Menu, with chopsticks. This is chicken with cashew nuts, served with white rice. I asked for hot tea, but was told that they didn’t have it. For clarification, I said, “This is a Chinese restaurant, but you don’t serve hot tea?”, and was told that was correct. I then asked for water. The waitress brought my order in a few minutes. I received a cardboard plate, a round plastic to-go bowl of the chicken mixture sitting on its plastic cover, white rice in a closed cardboard box with a wire handle, a refrigerated water bottle, and chopsticks, along with two plastic packets of soy sauce. It was actually a carry-out order served at a table! I didn’t bother asking for a spoon to move food onto the plate, but ate it directly from the bowl and didn’t touch the rice at all. I used my pocket knife to open the soy sauce packets, a messy procedure. The food was good, and served hot, with the usual mixture of vegetables and an ample amount of cashews. Even the small order was too much for me to eat at one sitting, and I took two-thirds of it and all of the rice home after asking for a plastic bag. There were no other patrons when I arrived. A young man sitting at a side table was the driver for delivery orders and left several times during my visit. An elderly couple used one of the side tables before I left. I wanted to know what the Bamboo Garden was like, and now that I know, I won’t be back. I did leave a tip because one of my daughters was once a waitress, and I always tip, but I didn’t really get much in the way of service. The place was clean, but I will never eat a second time at an Oriental restaurant that serves soy sauce in plastic packets and doesn’t have hot tea. I can accept a plastic cup of hot water and a tea bag, but prefer it to be served in a teapot. I also did not like having to buy bottled water. The air conditioning was minimal, but below the level of discomfort. Rating: 1

Tropical Smoothie Cafe Reviewed by Perry Crabill on . On Wednesday, August 3, 2016, my daughter and I had lunch at the newly opened Tropical Smoothie Café at 1531 South Pleasant Valley Road, located midway between Jiffy Lube and Roy Rogers. Hours are Monday-Friday, 7:00 AM-9:00 PM; Saturday, 8:00 AM-9:00 PM; Sunday, 9:00 AM-9:00 PM. The phone number is (540) 773-5731. Dine-in and carry-out service are available, along with a drive-up window. The Web site is www.tropicalsmoothiecafe.com, and on-line ordering will soon be available. The café is also on Facebook at www.facebook.com/thecafepost. This is a franchised operation and features free WiFi. The café is the front unit in the building, which also houses 1533, 1535, 1537, and 1539 South Pleasant Valley Road; these spaces are not currently occupied. All of these have doors along the building’s south side, and the drive-up lane for the Café is along the front. The entrance for 1531 has no vestibule, and the dining area has a single room. There’s a window along part of the front wall, and also on the entrance side. A bench along the right wall faces three tables for four with chairs; the left wall has three tables with chairs on both sides seating four each. A high rise table in the center has eight stools around it. The dark vinyl flooring imitates wooden boards; the high ceiling is also dark. An L-shaped counter on the right toward the back has five seats along the front for diners, and surrounds the front part of the kitchen. The menus are displayed up on the right wall behind the counter. Orders are placed and paid for along the side of the counter, and are brought to your table. The paper menu is a folded sheet. The Food Section lists Flatbreads, Wraps, Sandwiches, and Salads; Sides are fruit, kale & apple slaw, whole fruit, or chips. The Smoothies Section has Classics, Superfoods, Supercharged, and Indulgent items, along with Supplements and Fresh Add-Ins. Any Smoothie can be had with a half sandwich or half salad, and a 24 oz. Smoothie can be added to any flatbread, sandwich wrap, or salad. The All Day Breakfast Section includes Wraps and Flatbreads, and there is a Kids Menu. Beverages are not itemized. Smoothies are $2.00 off during Happy Hour, 7:00 AM-9:00 AM. My daughter ordered a Smoothie & a Half: An Ultimate Club from the Sandwich Menu; ham, turkey, bacon, swiss, parmesan, tomatoes, a romaine spinach blend & chipotle mayo on a ciabatta. Her Smoothie was Blueberry Bliss: blueberries, strawberries, & banana. The straw did not have the spoon she expected to find on the end. My order was from the Wraps Menu: It was Thai Chicken: grilled chicken, wontons, carrots, sesame seeds, romaine, cilantro, scallions, & thai peanut dressing in a toasted flour tortilla, with a banana as a whole fruit side, and Coca Cola as my beverage. There was no beverage dispenser; you fish your canned or bottled beverage from an oval tub of ice on the counter. The sides are on a wooden rack further back along the counter; the choice of whole fruit was bananas or oranges on the top shelf, with chips on the several lower shelves. The staff wears gray tees and either dark trousers or shorts. Most of the patrons were there for carry-out orders, so there was ample seating for those dining in. The food was good enough, but the main attraction was, of course, the Smoothies, something I’ll have to admit that I have never tried. I rate the restaurant as satisfactory, but am not likely to eat there very often. This is Winchester’s second Tropical Smoothie Café; the first one is located in the Rutherford Crossing Shopping Center on Route 11 north of Winchester. I ate there once in 2010, and it was a little more sophisticated than this one in that it had a drink dispenser instead of a tub of ice for beverages. Rating: 3
