Very friendly staff, spacious seating, fair prices. My partner and I shared the Wor Wonton and the bowl was full enough to almost bring some home. I had an egg roll and it was done perfectly. My partner tried the Goi Cuon and apparently it too was excellent. This restaurant serves Cantonese & szechaun & Vietnamese. We ordered sweet and... More

I went to this place to hopefully enjoy a good Chinese buffet. There was hardly any food in the steam table, and the little I got tasted terrible! One item I had was "crunchy coconut prawns", which was like eating a soft sponge. I did like the chicken balls, but there was no sweet and sour sauce in the little... More

Went for the buffet and there was no food left... nothing but empty warmers. The only thing there was were won-tons, so started with that. Tried again... same thing. Thinking that the third time up would be a charm but nope!!!! There where other customers also waiting and the only food they brought out as chow mien and rice. Then... More

Found this restaurant online. Looking to try something new in town. Had a 3.8 out of 5 rating so thought we'd give it a try. Well we didn't end up even trying their food the service was that bad. She didn't seat us. Didn't even ask us to seat ourselves. She got on her phone after we walked in and... More

As we are not familiar with Courtenay, we decided to go to this restaurant as we are partial to Chinese food. When we went (on a Friday night) the restaurant was filled with locals: families, teenagers, and local couples. To us this was a good sign. Their buffet seemed to be the centre of attention that night. We did not... More

This is my very favorite place in the Comox Valley to get Chinese food at. The menu items are great but the buffet is even better. I like that they keep it replenished regularly.

I got delivery from Bamboo garden. 4 dishes, $50.00. Every single dish was HORRIBLE.... Soggy, burnt, and just not edible. It left a lingering nasty taste in my mouth. No one in my family could eat it. I was offered a credit of $20.00, no thanks, never again.

I have ordered from there regularly but have noticed a decline in the quality of food. Not sure if they have a new chef or different suppliers but I'm at the point where I will be going elsewhere. I ordered tonight and it was horrible, there was so much grease it was not edible, we ended up taking the order... More
