Taking a group of 12 for dinner was made very simple at Bamboo Garden. With one large round table and a simple but effective fixed menu option, I was able to provide a delicious meal , with plenty of options coming out all at once....More

Everyone (locals and visitors) told me this was a great place to eat. I ordered heavenly beef and spicy vegetable to go. I got a dish of ok beef, with few large chunks of carrot and cabbage - most unappealing.

Went here for Yum Cha lunch. However was very disappointed in the food choices and quality. A lot of the good things were not on the menu. Had to ask for chilli oil and soy to be brought to the table. Food was substandard.

Left the motel and walked past this place. We were going to eat more central but this place was buzzing. Full premises must say something. Went in and they said they were full but would check as only 2 of us. They found a table....More

The decor was promising, fake Chinese throughout. The menus were so warn out that the print had worn off on every page. Service was good/prompt. The best part of the meal was the fresh duck spring rolls. The rest of the food was dull and...More
