A very good Asian restaurant

We ate at The Bamboo House recently, after not having dined there in some time. We generally get vegetarian items, and we were very pleased that the items we ordered (Eggplant with Garlic Sauce, and Sesame Tofu) were delicious, tastefully prepared, and cooked to our order.

The food at this place was delicious. It is some of the best Chinese food I've had in Rochester. It started off with homemade fried noodles, which were delicious. My wife and I got the fresh vegetarian spring rolls and chicken dumplings as appetizers. Both were really good. I got the spicy chicken with scallion pancakes and it was very... More

We are moving from NYC to Rochester. Chinese takeout has been a staple of our existence. We tried takeout from Bamboo House on a visit in December and found it a bit better than we expected. We were planning to go to another local restaurant on a Sunday night only to discover it was closed -- as are many things... More

Rochester has some outstanding Asian food and some terrible. Bamboo House is right in the middle. All the dishes are exactly as described. No surprises. Quantities are small to middling. Food does taste very fresh. The wait staff may vary, but when I've been there its been hard to get extra plates, and we were rushed (things quickly cleared away,... More

I had their special egg foo young, chicken, pork and shrimp. Very tasty. My three companions arw vegans. They asked for specifics, such as no oil. They were happily accommodated.They all declared they were satisfied. The portions were large. Definitely a place to which we will return.

You can go to the Bamboo House and get all your usual Chinese-American restaurant favorites but it is well worth digging a little deeper into the menu for the less common options. The food is well done and service is prompt and courteous.

This restaurant was owned by former friends of the family and it's close to our house. Because of the slow service, my husband has said three times we're not going back, but we keep trying it because we keep seeing it the potential to be better. The staff is always pleasant and the noodles are homemade, but the standard fare... More

I ate here recently and found the food to be of high quality, reasonable price, and tasty! First thing you should know us that they have a HUGE menu! Great choice selection. We had garlic chicken, beef with peppers and onions, chicken lo-mein, hot and sour soup, and wonton soup. The hot and sour soup was excellent. Not to salty... More

We order from this place for delivery all the time, but this was the first time we dined in. What a wonderful staff, huge selection of food, fast service and delicious! I ordered the chicken wings and Young Chow fried rice, chocked full of assorted meats and shrimp. The prices are very good too, if you get a chance, check... More

Looking for a new Asian restaurant to try I found Bamboo House and the menu online had a lot of great sounf=ding choices. I did a take-out order with three dishes. One was good, one was flavorful but light on meat and heavy on grease and the third was missing a critical sauce component in the box. At this point... More
