Stopped here for lunch while traveling through Prince Rupert. Large menu of Asian specialties, but we chose their Vietnamese dishes. Both were excellent: Beef with Rice Noodle and the Won Ton Soup special. Service was good. Halibut Rolls were our starter and these were tasty too. Convenient location to most hotels. Definitely recommend for lunch or dinner.

Big menu with variety of styles of food. Had veggie noodle stir fry. Great portion for reasonable price. Good veggies & not greasy. Polite staff & quick service.

We got take-out for lunch. The chicken wings were fine, but we didn't care much for the spicy thai soup -- it was more "sour" than spicy, but I guess that's not really a reason to fault it. It's more of a "degree" thing. Overall, I'd say not bad, but not really my favourite, either.

While I love the food and service is also very good, I especially enjoy eating here when I want a few minutes get-away. They play a relaxation CD which I find very calming after a hectic shift of work at home or running errands. Almost like being at a spa.

I love their Bamboo special fried rice, very tasty, love the chorizos! The dry spare ribs is a must try, really really good! I enjoy the spicy wings as well. If you want some soup, pho it is! =)

I love going there for the sushi but the waitresses are quiet rude defiantly one in particular I think she's the youngest working there. If she could maybe put a smile on her face and be nice this would defiantly have 4 or 5 stars.

I wouldn't go back here again for the deep fried ice cream. I looked for Herby's but when I called they said they had merged so we went there for the ice cream but it was not the greatest. My husband and sons wanted a specialty coffee with the ice cream but we were told we had to order food... More

First dinner in Prince Rupert. Atmosphere is typical Canadian/Asian. A little sparse. Food was good. Mango salad appetizer awas huge and delicious. Bamboo soup yummy. Wish someone would do bubble tea right. With actual milk tea flavour options. Otherwise quite nice.

The parents have closed Herby's and joined daughter Ann in her Bamboo Shoot restaurant a few doors away. They have merged the menus and continue to offer wonderful Vietnamese food with a Canadian flare. They are also open for breakfast offering traditional Canadian breakfast for $3.99. Check out the Lee's Special, named for our Mayor Lee Brain. Take out and... More
