Nope, not going to risk it. Cleanliness is the main factor. The renovations have removed the grease-laden carpet but the attitude toward cleanliness just isn't there. Sorry. The flavors were predictable and that's nice but...not enough.

Stopped there for a quick dinner before catching the ferry to Powell River. We arrived too early for the buffet but ordered the combo meals. The new owner was very kind as was the other staff. The food arrived hot and delicious. We will be back to sample the buffet. A great way to end a very hectic day

I was looking forward to a nice buffet. Not quite what we got. To be fair, did not arrive until 7:30pm. Fried rice was old and crunchy.. Wonton soup was down to Wonton broth. We had to wait until well into our meal before we got our waters. What is notable, is they had two waitress on the floor, and... More

Apparently this place has been open for years. I can't imagine why. The wait staff are earnest enough, but seem uncomfortable delivering the crap that is allegedly food to the tables., I have spent $7 at the Quality Foods buffet and had an order of magnitude better ethnic dining experience than the $25 'special' at Bamboo Inn. You can probably... More

We have only actually visited the restaurant once (Because we live in Spain) but I order often for my elderly parents who live in Courtenay. The food always arrives in good condition, hot and on time! Great job guy's, and... More
