We had our high hopes for good Chinese food at Caloundra dashed. The food was OK but not enough to come back for. Small cafe and rather dowdy.

Bought some takeaway from here one night. When we ordered we were told 25 minutes but it was almost 45 minutes before we got our food. People coming in after us were being told it was up to an hour.....think they may need more staff or just be better prepared. The food though was lovely, almost worth the wait. Not... More

Easy, clean, friendly and awesome tasting Chinese! The best by far and great value for money. The meal packs were a great option for first timers. I can't wait to chose off the menu or even eat in.

When we can't think of where to go for a quick casual Chinese, we never get any objection to suggesting the Bamboo Garden. Please don't be put off with the unattractive exterior nor the plastic table clothes. You are here for the best Chinese feed in Caloundra. The experienced proprietor has obviously got good kitchen staff and the food comes... More

For years I have been searching for the best chinese restaurant on the Sunshine Coast. I couldn't believe my luck when I came across Bamboo Gardens last year. Their Take away is quick, tasty and very affordable. The vegetables are perfectly cooked, and the meat they use- is real! I highly recommend their Mongolian lamb, Gingered lamb, Curry Chicken, Honey... More

On a previous visit to Caloundra we got some takeaway from the Bamboo Garden and were impressed with the freshness of the food. So with a party of nine we decided to book a table rather than mess around with a large takeaway order. We were all delighted with the meal - a standard menu but with fresh, great flavours... More

I visited Bamboo Gardens after reading several 5 star reviews. The food was fine, it certainly wasn't bad.......but..... It certainly was no better than the average Chinese style meal I have eaten in any other city. The beef in chilli beef was tasty and the best of the meals I tried. The chicken in Chinese special sauce was the worst... More

We ate here on a Sunday night. The restaurant was very quiet. Our food was prepared quickly. We had 2 mains which were huge portions The staff were constantly hovering filling our water etc. Average mains were approx $18 each. It was BYO which was a bonus

Have eaten there a few times now, mainly as part of groups but a couple of times on our own. Quality and quantity varies, but my meal was so poor the last time I went in April I haven't been back. It's over priced for the cheap surroundings, and not authentic at all (I've eaten in Asian countries). The lunch... More

We had diner here on Saturday evening, even though the service was friendly, the food was very disappointing. The fried rice was from a packet and the crispy fried chicken was just an everyday bird from the shop, if I wanted just a cooked chook, I would of gone to the supermarket. Would not recommend this place as it was... More
