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

I have been to Bamboo House several times (it is on the edge of the neighborhood where I grew up), and have not been disappointed. Food is hot and fresh, menu is extensive, and the services is good.

I ate lunch at Bamboo House this afternoon, and had a very satisfying meal. It was probably an unusual day for them, as there was a VERY large group sitting in the front dining room; probably at least 20 people. It did slow down the service a bit, but not to the point where it interfered with the meal. They... More

It's got to be hard to be a Chinese Restaurant in such close proximity to Chen Garden (Both are within 1/2 a mile of Twelve Corners in Brighton). Bamboo House claims to have a Chef who came from CG, so I am not sure what the relationship is there, but it just doesn't quite measure up. The food is pretty... More

Mostly go for lunch and they happily steam Jumbo shrimp and Chinese veggies. Healthy and delicious. The staff is friendly and attentive.
