Good food but lacking in atmosphere

We went here on a Saturday evening while visiting the blue mountains. The food was really good, it was piping hot and tasted fresh. Unfortunately, we were slightly disappointed with the atmosphere, the waitress was pretty grumpy and the music was pretty awful.

I have eaten at the Bamboo Box half a dozen times now - I keep going back as it is tasty, quick and reasonably priced. Sadly I keep ordering the same thing, the salt, pepper, chilli squid and the green beans in black bean sauce, with Thai fishcakes for starters... I prefer the dinner menu to the lunch. I have...

After a long day hiking we came here for a late lunch right before they closed. It was a cold day and a warm soup sounded great. We had Laksa soup and it was amazing. The price was the most economical in all of Australia. I would return here time and time again.

Visit this restaurant in a chilly day. I ordered the lunch special (2 dishes with rice). The Chinese and Malaysian dishes are both tasted very good. In addition, they also have fish n chip, burger in their menu. Those tasty food give me enough energy to visit the blue mountain.

I eat here regularly as i have a shop near by. No msg used and always a tasty variety of food. If your watching your pennies go there in the arvo after 3 and they make up containers of curries and other dishes for $4.00. Excellent value.

The menu is predominantly Thai, with some Malay, and Chinese influences too. I had the Beef Rendang curry which was delicious - although I would've liked more sauce with it. Spring rolls were just okay, but the wontons and chicken satay were tasty. Would definitely go back.

Tried a couple of other places, should have known to make a reservation on a Long Weekend Saturday night. Went into the Bamboo Box and we were glad we had missed out on the others. Great food, great service and great prices. Will be back again.

My wife and I stumbled across the Bamboo Box restaurant purely by chance. we were only in the Blue Mountains for two evenings, and having discovered this restaurant on the first evening we were more than pleased to return to it on the following evening. The food was excellent, the staff friendly and very helpful and is is both inexpensive... More
