Not Great, but Good and Reliable

My wife and I had an urge for quick Chinese. With all the choices in the Arlington/Lexington area, we chose Bamboo. Food was immediately available and pretty good. Nothing was exceptional, and nothing was awful. While it won't be a "top choice" for future lunch dates, it will be a consideration.

This Chinese was both a takeaway and a restaurant which made us a bit unsure as to the quality of the food. Apart from the fact our server had no idea what prawn crackers were we shouldn't have worried our Chinese meal was awesome! Maybe not having prawn crackers served while you look at the menu and order your meal... More

I ordered take out. We could not chew the barbecued spareribs. they were so overdone and so dry- the worst I had EVER had. Pad Thai a specialty? What kind of specialty? The poorest? A mockery! Shu Mai overcooked with little taste!

I've been to this restaurant on several occasions for business luncheons. We usually come here for the buffet, which has a large selection of typical Asian appetizers and entrees, as well as sushi and desserts. The wait staff always keep the buffet stations clean and well stocked. The restaurant is clean, well-kept, and the service is very good. The food... More

Went for the first time with 3 other couples. Had the sushi appetizer which is served in a BIG boat and regular PuPu platter appetizers. Everything was very fresh and cooked perfectly. Those of us that ate the sushi thought it was excellent. Would definitely go back there again, maybe try a meal as well.

Maybe it's because I've been here 900 times, but I'm starting to not like some of the food items at Bamboo. I usually go for the lunch buffet and the ~$14-16 I shell out just isn't worth it anymore. The sushi is still pretty good, but American-Chinese offerings like General Gau are underwhelming and disappointing. For example, the chicken was... More

We've been to the Bamboo in Westford many times but this was our first time at this location. The last time we got takeout from Westford it was so horrible that we haven't been back. We were on our way to the airport and intended to go to Flatbread Pizza next door which we're very fond of but my son... More

Excellent service, reasonable prices and delicious food. Nothing to complain about. Would like to visit and sit down, but I would have to drive a thousand miles.

Went here for a buffet lunch and was not disappointed. Service was good, food for above average and ambiance was nice. Buffet seemed a bit crowded and the sushi at the buffet was a little untouched. Enjoyed the shrimp and the chicken fingers.

Atmosphere is nice, service was good, the food is about average. I have been here for dinner and the lunch buffet. The buffet lunch does provide a great variety, however, it is rather crowded with a constant line of people which does not flow well - the way they have it setup. It is fairly good-sized American-Asian restaurant; lots of... More
