It's a small establishment offering a great range of delicious food. The staff were great and made suggestions for alternatives as they had run out of one of our chosen dishes. The roti canai, Szechuan pork and ginger beef were delicious. Although the salt and pepper squid tasted good it was a little overcooked, but I am prepared to overlook... More

We couldn't get into Station Bar because it was too busy, so went wandering down the main street in search of somewhere to eat. We found the Bamboo Box and we couldn't have been more impressed with the food and the friendly service. The food tasted so fresh and all of the meals were cooked to absolute perfection!

Awesome little gem in Katoomba directly opposite The Carrington Hotel. Great fresh and tasty food with friendly and genuine service. The Pork rolls are amazing.

I'm a local and have been for five years so i think I've got a reasonable idea about what's working on the food scene in Katoomba. Let's get one thing straight, the Bamboo Box is not the best asian restaurant in Katoomba .... but that's only because this little jewel of a town has some of the best Korean and... More

As a coeliac tourist I often have to make do with what I get when it comes to dining out. Finding Bamboo Box, however, was an unexpected delight to the senses. The staff was friendly, knowledgeable and professional, while the three Chinese dishes we had were not just gluten free but very tasty and well presented. Then came the biggest... More

Dropped in for a simple meal and were blown away by the quality and service. One entree, two mains and corkage less than $50. Great flavours. Took some home for lunch next day. Fabulous!

Arrived Katoomba 8 pm on a cold rainy night by train. Glad to find this restaurant still open. Greeted by friendly staff who even introduced us where to go the next day. Food tastes good and is spicy enough as commented by my Malaysian relatives. Asian cuisine is undeniably its specialty.

The food is correct but the prices a bit expensive. The atmosphere is not like you feel in an Asian restaurant. Definitely not the best Asian food in Katoomba.
