Don't be scared by the empty parking lot. I almost was and almost missed a great meal. We've eaten here in the restaurant and takeout a few times last year. We really enjoyed it but we have a large family and do not all agree on Chinese for dinner. We were able to go again tonight and had the pork... More

We live in the area so we know that this restaurant changed ownership a few years ago. Under the previous owner, this restaurant was the best Chinese restaurant in the mid Michigan area. After the restaurant changing hands, their food is close to the worse of any Chinese restaurant that we have ever eaten. We will not go back to... More

This is the perfect place for lunch - it's our go-to. Food is hot, delicious and there's a lot of variety. Highly recommended!

We stopped in the Bamboo Garden without any recommendations from friends and found it to be really good. The lunch buffet is certainly competent, but ordering off the menu is really wonderful. we tried the Cumin Lamb which was a 'hot pepper' item. My wife and I shared the the lamb and were blown away first by the heat and... More

I've been to most of the Chinese restaurants in the Midland, Bay City, Saginaw region and there is no doubt in my mind that this is one of the best. It was recommended to me by friends who moved to Saginaw a few years back, from a much larger metropolitan area out West. The service is excellent but more importantly,... More

We went here on Christmas because it was the only Chinese place open in town. You would think with that being the case, they would have staffed accordingly. There were 2 maybe 3 people working in the entire place and we had to wait to even get a clean booth. While we waited 45 minutes for our food, 4 couples... More

Bamboo Garden is the best restaurant you will find in Midland for very close to authentic Chinese fare. The establishment is a old Pizza Hut restaurant converted to Chinese Restaurant. The decor is old, but tasteful. Very clean, friendly, and most of all, excellent food. The spicy shrimp with salt dish was especially tasty, and they make the best hot... More

According to my Chinese friend, this is the most authentic Chinese restaurant in the Midland, Saginaw, Bay City area. We ordered the braised pork belly which was delicious. We also ordered some fish plate and spicy salt shrimp. The fish was very good too. I went there with my Chinese friend and she ordered these plates. The portions were big... More

It has a small buffet, they have a lot to choose from the food is average. The price is comparative. It is a good place for children, to try different foods. A good place for large parties and for families.
