Ordered off the menu... great selection and awesome taste!

This place has a great menu. We have twice ordered the singapore noodles, salt and pepper squid, hot and sour soup, mah po tofu, and black bean prawns. They give you lots of seafood and the food tastes much more authentic than we expected!

We came from out of town and were excited to come here as we have eaten here before. My family said that the fish items from the buffet tasted a little off, and didn't continue to eat it. Personally, I wasn't a big fan of the vermachelli noodles (yellow noodles) as they didn't seem to have much taste. Other than... More

The smorg is pretty good. Not amazing, but if you're wanting a buffet with a really nice view, then this is a good choice. Pretty much the same fare as other places and they have a wicked karaoke setup if you're into singing. Lunch is about $10 and dinner is $15. The service is excellent.

I recently had lunch here with a friend - her suggestion which, to be truthful, was not something I had wanted. I had last eaten here about 18 months ago and had such a dismal experience I vowed then never to come back. Well, things have changed. The Bamboo Inn has changed hands since that time, and what a huge... More

We were pleasantly surprised at the quality of the dishes last night. There was a full house and they managed to get the dishes out (one at a time, proper banquet style) hot, fresh and tasty. Lisa and her staff did an admirable job. Not sure why the plates were put on the table without serving spoons, though. We made... More

We love Chinese and have been eating it a multitude of years. When we first moved to the Valley (from Vancouver) Bamboo Inn was our first Chinese event here. Pretty sub par at that point so when we needed a Chinese fix, we'd head up to Driftwood, either to eat in or take out. We noticed after some time that... More

Walked in and shared a dinner for 2 with my husband while visiting Comox. I had a soft drink and he had a beer and the meal consisted of generous portions of sweet and sour pork, chicken chow mein, and beef and broccoli. The chow mein in particular was amazing. Yum! None of that gooey slimy stuff on top it... More

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.
