Very good lunch menu and the food is always fresh. Not traditional chinese food, but very good for American chinese. Now that they take card, I'll be getting more take out!

Food is quick and well priced. They have various spice levels also. One of my favorite places to eat. Only cash or check though so just fyi.

This place has great Sizzlin Rice Soup. My husband and I love going here for a quick bite to eat and not having to spend too much on our food. And the food is always good. Would recommend this to everyone.

I had never eaten here before and felt like giving this place a try. The food here actually was decent however, I ordered carry out and the year is 2014. It should be fairly safe to assume that they would accept credit and they let me order carry out without warning me that they didn't. Fortunately, I had just barely... More

We have continued coming to Lucky Bamboo at least once a week for nearly a year. The restaurant and the food is still one of the two best in Ankeny. The December 2013 review by another reviewer is subjective and inaccurate in suggesting the buffet across the street to be better. We used to be fairly regular customers at the... More
