Many of the negative reviews I give in Katoomba are for places that close down. This place is the opposite side of the same coin --- a place that has great food and has been open for ages. It is small, but don't be put off. There are take-aways that you can eat at the Carrington lawn opposite. The "secret"... More

I was looking for a quick inexpensive lunch and stumbled across Bamboo Box. Food is the best asian food we have had in a very long time. Full of flavour, well priced and fresh. Would return in a heartbeat.

Salt and pepper fish, singapore noodles, and chicken and cashews in oyster sauce made a delicious meal for four. I wish this place were my local. This tiny Katoomba restaurant punches well above its weight and has friendly, efficient staff to boot. Yum. It's yet another reason to visit the Blue Mountains more often.

The food here is fantastic, affordable and authentic with a classier dinner service available on weekends, however the lunches here are some of my most memorable, and that's after living and eating in Sydney for 8 years and moving back here to a land of limited options. Home style Vietnamese pork rolls with fresh coriander and chilli mayonnaise, a pumpkin... More

Came across this hidden gem as we were walking to the thai square restaurant down the road and decided to check out the menu. Definitely the best Chinese food Ive ever eaten in the 25 years I've lived in Sydney. The service was also fantastic :) so friendly and the price reasonable.

We've been to Bamboo Box at Katoomba several times now and it's always provided a reliable venue for amazingly good tasting food in an intimate, yet informal setting. During the day you can dine in or get a great variety of Asian inspired dishes, sushi and simpler fare. At night Bamboo Box transforms and offers patrons Malaysian and Chinese style... More

Walking down the street in the freezing cold wind and spotted this little Asian restaurant. Very welcoming,warm and slightly eccentric but friendly. Fast service and a great choice of dishes. Delicious food and not too expensive. For a quick healthy meal this was perfect. Lots of locals as well as visitors. Newspapers and magazines to read and eccentric, friendly locals... More

What a great place to have dinner. The food was delicious and very good value for the money spent. The staff were friendly and we enjoyed the ambiance of the restaurant. We had no problems being given a table (we did not have a reservation) around 6:30 but it quickly filled up. If I couldn't get table the next time... More

The best thing about this restaurant is the staff, they are lovely and friendly and very attentive. The menu is extensive and a little overwhelming with the hybrid modern Asian food. The food was delicious but it's a mix of Malaysian, Chinese, modern Australian.
