Food was really salty and oily. We were a family of four and a baby and the bill was $100, no drinks. We don't eat a lot and portions were small. That's REALLY expensive for Chinese food. We could've gotten the same amount of food...More

Fabulous dinner and evening at Bambu last night. Great service and great wine, wine bottles are 10 dollars off on Friday nights. New favourite place to go out. Food is so good.

This place is surprisingly pleasant…for a light lunch! It was good, but I was not blown away! As a former Montreal resident, I greatly struggle to not only find a satisfying restaurant that serves Asian food, but struggle to find a good restaurant in general,...More

Questions & AnswersAsk a question
I see that you've indicated this as a typically asked question and so I apologize for asking it, but I cannot find the answer anywhere...? Do you have gluten free options? I'd like to be able to enjoy more than salad, rice & plain chicken :) and am wondering how many of the selection of entrees I would be able to enjoy? Sauces, seasonings, etc.? Many thanks in advance for your reply and I look forward to my long awaited visit to Bambu this coming week.
