I occasionally get really hungry for Chinese. Coming home from the Lake, I bypassed Springfield,{too early}, Mt.Vernon (one low rated, the other my gps couldn't find) which brought me to Carthage at 1:00 pm and I keep getting great stories about this place. There should be a law that all Chinese Buffets should go to half price at 12:30 and... More

Bamboo Gardens is the oldest Chinese restaurant and town. And it stands to be the best Chinese restaurant in town. Their buffet provides you with a variety of Chinese food to meet your Chinese food cravings.

This was the only restaurant we visited in Carthage and we were disappointed. There is a small buffet, so we decided to order off the menu. We were not impressed, but it was adequate.

We stopped by here for an early dinner. I decided to have the buffet I got up to fix my plate and they didn't have any chicken. So I grabbed some fruit and other items thinking they would bring more chicken out. The only positive thing was the fruit was good the other items which were supposed to be hot... More

This restaurant has a lot of seating and a nice food bar, smorgasbord type meal. We have always enjoyed the food here and the variety provided. The lemon chicken and general Zsoa's chicken is amazing.

I had been to this place as a child and I guess I thought it was good ( and it might have been 20 yrs ago) the building is nice and clean and very large. The selection was NOT very good and nothing had any flavor. It was hands down the WORST Chinese food I've ever had the displeasure of... More

It's ok but far from good. Everything tastes the same. Mirrors make it look bigger than it is. Same owner owns Root Zero 3. Resturant is clean although the flys were very bad.
