Lived here for awhile and make rime to stop when passing through. We love the egg rolls and Cashew Chicken here. Always able to count on it tasting the same with good portions and quality. Eat in or take to go!

Our daughter has moved to St. Louis, but has not been able to find a Chinese restaurant she likes as well as Bamboo Gardens. When she visits, we always have to eat at Bamboo. Fantastic buffet!

Wonderful establishment, great takeout and a most marvelous buffet with an assortment of dishes. Excellent egg rolls and you can't forget the soft-serve ice cream for dessert.

This restaurant has been in Carthage for years and is somewhat traditional. To me, the food is just average. It is a favorite to many.
