We have been using this restaurant for years, and always enjoyed the food, but, ... last Sunday we rang up and got take aways, which we collected, and the food was not good at all, under seasoned, under flavoured, just not appetizing at all. Didn't smell like or taste like chinese food at all. Like, did they run out of... More

40 of us from a car club visited Blenheim for a weekend. Bamboo Garden did a set meal for us, soup, 2 starters, 9 or 10 mains with rice and Ice cream Sunday to finish off at $35/head. The style is Asian - Chinese, Japanese and Thai being the main influence of food styles. There was more than ample food... More

The food was okay but very over priced for the tiny serves, we ate in and spent over $100 and left still hungry. There was more garnish on the plate than the actual dish you ordered. Also use tiny plates to try and make it seem like you had more. Very disappointed and will not return again.

Orange beef, braised pork with red curry, combination fried rice. Staffs are friendly and very helpful on deciding the food.

it was a great, we had 18 of us and the service and speed were great and of course foods were great. The kids enjoyed their kids meal and we adults enjoyed our meal so much. Especially, the meat. Can not remember what they called but something Tiger Dragon steak.. We could use an entertainment book too! Thanks

Group of 5 of us (all hungry blokes) booked in 5pm (to avoid the rush pre Rugby test match starting 7.30). When we arrived (1st time visitors) we thought booking was waste of time as there was nobody at all in restaurant. Different story 1/2 hour later - place was jammed - very pleased we booked. Probably seats 100/150 when... More

On a wet night we were warmly welcomed. After ordering and choosing a drink our meals arrived very quickly. They were plentiful and delcious. I had a Thai chicken dish and my husband black bean sauce beef with fried vegetable rice. The ambience was calming and very stylish I really recommend this restaurant.

Visited with friends on a Saturday night. It was crowded, and noisy. The lighting was bright and quite unpleasant. The tables were very close together, and as most were square they did not lend themselves to a "sharing" sort of meal....a la "lazy Susan". The service was good, but not excellent, probably due to numbers and the general "hubbub". The... More

Food was delicious. Service was excellent especially having two kids and a newborn with us. Both enjoyed their first proper dining experience.
