This was beyond the best experience I have had at a Caribbean restaurant in Brooklyn. I had a wonderful server named Jhnell. She was so warm and welcoming, and make sure that she tended to our every need. During our time there at the restaurant, they made sure that they checked in to make sure that everything was running smoothly and everything was to our liking. The level of detail and attention that we received during our time has completely blown my mind! The food was so delicious, and they offered a variety of different cuisines. The bartender Melbourne made our mimosas just to our liking, and even stop by the table to make sure that everything tasted OK and personally kept on refilling our bottomless mimosas. He made sure to never let it be empty and that is what I call perfect service. I would 1000% recommend everybody to come and try good Caribbean food with a upscale feel. I will be back again for dinner. Thank you so much Bamboo Walk for taking such great care of us!

We visited Jalao for my mom and I's birthday and were blown away by its vibrant ambiance and delicious cuisine. From the moment we walked in, we felt transported to DR. The menu featured authentic Dominican dishes like mofongo and empanadas, bursting with flavor. The attention to detail in capturing Dominican culture was impeccable, making for a truly memorable dining experience. Highly recommended!
