Chinese so so

Visited this restaurant with a group. Guided to a ‘private’ room, but basically left alone, even after all of our group arrived. Not offered drinks, or even water. However, once they decided to take orders (about ten minutes), the service was fast and efficient. The food was very good, and... read more

If you have experienced real dumplings don't your time here, food was terrible including the vegetable pine nut lettuce leave cups... Not to mention they upped their prices by about $3-4 per dish because it was Easter Saturday would never go back very annoyed at how expensive this place was and how average the food was!

Dont waste your money. Very disappointed. The food was bland and not much of it. The waitress was far from welcoming.

I went to Bamboo Basket when they first opened and hated it. I got convinced to give it another go....why do i listen to people. The food tasted like balloons and feet, the service was slow and rude. The fried rice was nice but not the best i've ever had. The dumplings with the soup just tasted strange and the... More

I love this place - good quality yum cha at reasonable prices (rare to find good value at South bank). The only thing I didn't like was that despite having a near-empty restaurant, they sat us right next to another couple - like I'm talking uncomfortably close, I think our tables were almost touching and we could hear every word...

Looking for a good Chinese dining experience - then Bamboo basket is the place to go. However if you were hoping for the Yum Cha experience - look elsewhere. They offer yum cha - but just off a menu - no cart etc. so sadly it was just like ordering an entree - not the experience we were hoping for.

By far my favourite Asian restaurant in Brisbane. The noodles taste so fresh and the dumplings are delicious. I've been back a few times now and have had a great meal each time. The tables seem very close to each other but I haven't had any issues with it being too noisy. I highly recommend eating here.

This place is pretty good if you have a group of friends that really enjoy food sharing and time with each other. We had a group of 8 plus 2 kids and they served everyone the same. We have been to a number of places with the 2 kids and they ether look down or they get different service to... More

Very nice wine available by the glass. The duck/prawn steamed dumplings were divine and served quickly. Went back a second time to try the duck pancakes and wasn't disappointed. Quite an extensive menu.
