We were a family party of 12 on a Saturday night. Chose to order off the menu rather than a banquet. Food was scrumptious especially the prawn stuffed zucchini flowers. Whole dining experience was great.

After the theatre on Friday night we wandered in just before 11pm, had a delicious late night dinner, just 2 of us. A couple of dishes and rice, simple, but it was really good, not cheap, but well worth it ! We'll go back !

Top quality Chinese restaurants in the heart of Melbourne's China town. They had a lot of choices on the menu but we stuck with some of the waiters recommendations. You should try the crispy beef for main, it's sticky as expected but has a great...More

Bamboo House staff were welcoming, provided great assistance with the menu and wine and provided a great meal. The food was tasty and fresh and the 6 of us who dined all agreed the food was fantastic. It's not cheap, but well worth it.

Locals know that Chinatown is the tried and true place
to eat before hitting the nightclub scene. The place
simply buzzes, and the well-preserved buildings exude
a sense of Imperial China stemming from immigration
over a century ago. In restaurant after restaurant on
Little Bourke Street, you'll find delicious dishes
such as sizzling honeyed prawns, and value for your
money. Stately matrons oversee family kitchens serving
