Near Bow St. Ma Po To Fu, 8.95, could feed 2. Silky tofu in savory - not too salty, sauce that's medium spicey with pork grounds, then topped with a sprinkle of sliced, fresh, green onions. Menu includes: Hot Pot starting @ 13.95, Hot & Sour Soup 2.95, and 21 lunch specials until 3pm starting @ 5.95. Regular menu dishes for chicken, seafood, and beef start @ 9.95, 11.95, & 10.95, respectively. Clean. Dark tables. Zen-ish. Gracious service. Ask them re: Ladies' Night. Will return for lunch or appetizers and cocktails.

Excellent Food

The food here is excellent. The fried rice is not the usual greasy variety and the wonton soup is perfect on a chilly day. The only issue is the timing of the food delivery to the table; it arrived one dish at a time, and I had to ask about my final item well after everything else was on the... read more

We recently stayed at the Wentworth and decided we wanted some delivery for dinner instead of going out or getting room service. The reviews for this place were good so we decided to try it. They delivered to our hotel in the time that they said that they would; the food was fresh and hot. We ordered chicken udon noodles,... More

Always fresh vegetables, still crunchy, not soggy when they reach you! Clean place with super friendly staff. I order delivery often and it's always hot and delicious!

This is by far the best Asian food in town hands down. Not only is there food great but they work very clean too. Having food allergies eating Chinese is always a bit risky. Usually if I can find something that won't make me Ill it has lost all flavor. However I have never had that problem here. All the... More

Although there are several fine Chinese restaurants in the Portsmouth area, this little spot on Penhallow Street truly stands out. It was lunchtime when I visited and many places can be noisy and rushed at this time. Not so here. Service was prompt and my selection was fresh and tasty. There are about two dozen lunch specials offered and each... More

Delicious food, great service with Wonton soup to die for. Try the thin noodles, yum. First Chinese restaurant I've tried in the area and I'd go back.

Growing up as a Yorker, I had been a Greenleaves loyal customer but haven't been satisfied for a while now. We are always out and about in Portsmouth, and love trying new places to eat. Finally poped into Pink Bamboo today and I am SO happy I did. Great food, not the artificial chinese taste. Hot, tasty and good. My... More

We had beef and vegetable selections and had a bit of spice to our broth. It was fantastic. Usually in New England area restaurants I have a hard time getting a decent spice level but this time we got it right the first time. The staff were also kind enough to bring more spice and vinegar to punch it up... More
