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

The bamboo in has decent food, a comfortable atmosphere and a service and product that is both reliable and consistent! 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

Saturday night buffet was nothing special. The ginger beef was very tough and my husband thought the shrimp was a little slimy. Generic Chinese food, as written by a previous reviewer, is an apt description. Our waiter was very accommodating, as was the rest of the staff. The restaurant and washrooms were meticulously clean. Prices were reasonable. I don't think... More

I have eaten food from the Bamboo Inn several times over the past two decades that I have lived in the area. Each time I have done so, it has gotten a bit worse, to the point where I don't go there/order from there any more. Recently I was invited out for lunch with a friend who really had a... More

Went in for the buffet. Got pretty much the same food you get at any chain Chinese food place. It's not terrible but nothing out of the ordinary. I wouldn't recommend it but I also wouldn't tell anyone to not eat here.

They advertised 'dinner for two' for what appeared to be a reasonable price.We asked if it was available for takeout. We also asked if they had dry garlic spareribs. We ordered... More
