Ordered take out. It was worth the drive from our hotel by the interstate. Our meal was delicious and satisfying. Would recommend.

I like Chinese but my husband doesn't. We thought he could order the BBQ ribs and some shrimp. Well, the ribs were tough, flavorless and dry and they didn't have any extra BBQ sauce to make them palatable. The shrimp was very crisp but no cocktail sauce to dip it in. I was happy with the Moo Goo Gai Pan... More

Over-breaded shrimp and a sweet and sour dish that came with nothing but plain sweet and sour sauce. We tried it because it had great ratings on here. Never again.

Have eaten here many times over the years and have never been disappointed. The service is very prompt and food is always great. I have never had a problem getting right in and being seated. They give large portions for the price you pay. If you are tired of fast food Chinese food, this is the place to go in... More

This restaurant has been an Elizabethtown favorite for more years than I know. Their food is always delicious and they will cook to order if there are vegetables you do not like. They will steam tofu instead of frying, etc. Just wish they had brown rice. We usually go for lunch but I know their Wednesday and Sunday buffets are... More

My husband and I went to Green Bamboo for the first time last night for a pre-Valentine's day dinner. It was perfect. Our waitress was quick to our table, quick on refills, and always on top of things. The husband ordered the Triple Delight dinner with Wonton soup. I had the dinner combo with beef and broccoli, Mandarin chicken and... More

We live about 20 miles from Green Bamboo and always heard how great it is. Even the reviews sound awesome. HOWEVER, we were so disappointed! Food was bland. It was the first time I had sweet and sour sauce that was orange rather than the usual rose colored, but the sweet and sour chicken didn't come with the usual fruits... More

I had chicken with broccolli, would of preferred brown rice, but it wasn't available. It was only a mild disappointment for an otherwise great tasting dish. Would go there again when in the area.

We have been eating at this restaurant since they opened (over 15, maybe 20 years or more) and it is in my opinion one of the best anywhere! Their won-ton soup is excellent. Their shrimp fried rice is one of our favorites and is more flavorful than anyone else's .Haven't had anything I didn't like. The atmosphere is old but... More
