We went for a business dinner with an Asian supplier. The food was great. The Dumplings delicious & the Peking Duck was absolutely fabulous. If you go there early you can get a street parking spot

It isn't a trip to Melbourne without a Peking duck experience at Bamboo House. This time we were celebrating my daughter's birthday and as always we were well pleased. The eggplant dish is also highly recommended.
