Went there last week, having read the TA reviews, it was very busy and there was just one waitress! She was doing her best, but it was more than she could cope with! No cold water, no ice for ice bucket to keep wine cold on a hot night. The food was pretty average too. Wouldn't recommend it!

Located within walking distance close to Katoomba train station, opposite of the Carrington hotel, this small restaurant is often patronized by tourists and locals for their meals. Available for dine in or take away, it caters a variety of Asian food, mainly to Chinese cuisine. Tried the nasi goreng Malaysian style and Singapore noodles, though the nasi goreng is quite...

Probably walk past this place 9 times out of 10, decided to go in because of positive reviews on this site, looks ordinary, plain cafe seating, but had delicious pork Szechuan and would recommend you try it.

This place is a local favourite. We have been eating here since it was opened a few doors up from where the current restaurant is located. The evening menu has been tweeked in the last year or so and offers a wide variety. There is nothing fancy about the decor, it's all about the taste, which is top notch. So... More

I had done my homework b4 visiting Katoomba last Saturday and chosen Bamboo Box from the reviews on Trip Advisor and wasn't disappointed. We also received 10% discount because of the accommodation we stayed in (Echo Point) which was a bonus we weren't expecting. As a family of 4 (2 teens and 2 adults) we enjoyed 5 main dishes which...

The food was really delicious and the portion was really generous. Strongly recommended to have a lunch here. The daily lunch set is outstanding value for money and the fried rice is very delicious as well.

The interior is quite simple, but holy moly the food is delicious!! It came out piping hot, full of flavour and great portions. The vege spring rolls were the best we've ever had! Really happy with the service. BYO - fantastic - especially as the bottle shop is so close.
