Food was good as were most of the servers

I used to eat there quite often but went once solo for the buffet and the woman at the cash register ignored me and answered four take out phone calls.

Was traveling thru Ky on my way back home to WV. In the mood for Chinese so I pulled up Trip Advisor and saw this place. We are so happy we stopped. Had the house special Sizzling Shrimp....best we've ever had! Big shrimp,crispy on the outside with a thin, ginger-flavored coating that did not overwhelm like so many fried coatings... More

I've been eating at this place for over 30 years. I consider it to be the best Chinese restaurant anywhere and I'm well traveled. I live an hour away and will drive those two hours round trip just to get to enjoy the delicious food there.

We frequent this establishment when we want delicious variety. My kid loves the fish tanks and they always place is right next to them. Food is reasonably priced and they are great with takeout.

We are local and have been eating here once a week for over ten years. The food is great and reasonably priced. You can have it spicy hot or not. You can have it with fried rice or steamed rice. You can have it ala carte, or not. There is a terrific lunch buffet on Wednesdays and Sundays. The rest... More

Chinese is one of my favorites; Wednesday & Sunday lunch buffet brings out a crowd at the Green Bamboo. The wait was about 15 minutes on a recent visit; the honor system is used instead of a sign-in. There is no salad bar; very limited desserts are included. However, the buffet has many of your favorite dishes. Replenishing your plate... More

Went because of the reviews on this site. General Tso, vegetable egg roll, fried rice. When I ordered the general's the waiter immediately went and got a picture so I understood what I was getting. The chicken is in un-breaded white meat. Personally I like it without any breading. The spice level was not on the hot side. I liked... More

If you love chinese food, then this is a wonderful place to eat. Staff are friendly, service is excellent, and the food is very good, with large portions. You can eat your fill & have food left over to take home for later. When I am in Elizabethtown, Ky & in the mood for chinese food, this is my "go... More
