A great meal at Bamboo last night. Love the combinations of dishes and flavours. From experience we know that when it is full it can get very loud in the restaurant. Love that the staff go the extra mile for birthdays. Thank.you

We had a couple of dishes from here recently for takeout...sweet and sour pork and cashew chicken. Both were really good. Of course being takeout and as is the usual, the pork wasn't crispy even though it had been fried. One of the downsides to not eating in house. The chunks of pork were big, however and the whole dish... More

Had the Sunday lunch Yum Cha with three others. A different system to the Australian Yum Cha where they bring out the morsels on trolleys. Here you place you order from the menu and it is brought to the table from the kitchen. I like the Australian system as you can see the dishes being offered and make your choice... More

Our party of 4 had a great night, there is plenty of menu choices and everything is very reasonably priced. (Go Thai Green Curry, beautiful) Thanks once again for our wonderful meals and your excellent service.

A very busy Asian restaurant. But the service was timely and the food was good. As most places, the sizes were generous. The menu was somewhat daunting, as they appear to try to cater to all Asian tastes. The acoustics weren't great but the decor was nice.

We walked down to this restaurant to pick up our take-away order as we were staying at Chateau Marlborough for a long weekend. After we walked all the way back to the hotel and settled in to eat our dinner, we saw they got the order wrong (even though they had repeated it back to us on the phone)! So... More

What lovely food, a combination of Asian foods from different countries. We were a large group of twenty adults. The food was provided as a group and was placed on large lazy susans, so the food was shared around starting off with a traditional corn and chicken soup that was hearty and traditional. Overall true value for money and gorgeous... More
