We recently ordered a take out meal from the Bamboo House. The portions were very large and food was good. I ordered mixed veggies in garlic sauce and my son ordered sauteed shredded spicy beef. We can never seem to get the Chinese restaurants in town to make the meals hot enough but they were... read more

My dad and I wanted to try a different place. So I had shrimp and scallop with broccoli. Served with stream rice, and a side of lomein. My dad ordered the special, sizzle plate, and WonTon soup. I have included a picture of my plate, and it way great. But my dad said, never, get the special. Also nice bar... More

We recently ordered a take out meal from the Bamboo House. The portions were very large and food was good. I ordered mixed veggies in garlic sauce and my son ordered sauteed shredded spicy beef.

I have stopped here for lunch on several occasions while bicycling southeast of Rochester. This is my favorite for good food at a reasonable price. Meal plus soft drink generally less than $10.00. Generally have the pork with scallions (with additional since).

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
