My husband and I ate here recently and the food was amazing. The menu was quite extensive and there was a lot to choose from. Would certainly go back again.

We had dinner on Thursday night. The food was fabulous and the staff very friendly. I would recommend this restaurant to everyone if they are after very fresh well cooked asian food. All in all the experience was fantastic. Good value.

My wife and I ate at Bamboo Box for dinner and were very pleased with our meals. We both ordered entrees and main meals and shared a dessert. The staff was incredibly friendly and all of the food was great!

It's easy to walk right past it but worth looking for if you want a tasty Asian meal at a reasonable price. As it is small with seating for only about 20 people, either show up before the rush at 6pm, or book a table.

A lovely cosy little restaurant just across from the Carrington Hotel, with friendly staff and good authentic food. The Szechuan Eggplant was a highlight for us, and the sticky date pudding was the best I've ever had.

Popped in from my stay at careington hotel across the road. It was a cold night so didn't want to far. We were very pleased with our meals. Very large serves, great flavour, huge selection to choose from. I'd go back.

It is a South East Asian restaurant, with many food options from Malaysia. I guess the owner or the chef could be formerly Malaysian. Had the mixed rice, and the food is just average.
