Great vegetarian options with more variety than just vegetables and sauce. Their tofu offerings are good. More take out than eat in.

Stumbled into this place for lunch. Small, seems to be a lot of carryout, but dining in was good. Very good Chinese. I had the twice cooked pork luncheon special. Nicely spiced. Courteous staff, quick service, comfortable space. If you're in the area for lunch, I dont' believe you can go wrong. Quick service, easy in/out.

We had the General Tso's Chicken and it was very good. Very tender pieces of chicken and not chewy or hard to tell what you are eating. We also ordered the crab Rangoon but it was okay. I think they may have been over cooked. Shrimp with lobster sauce was good too.

I'm amused by all the glowing reviews and have to wonder if we're talking about the same Chinese take out restaurant. The food is greasy, gross and overpriced even if you get the "lunch special." Don't expect the same dish ingredients as what you find at other Chinese restaurants and don't expect the various veggies and meats to be diced/sliced/prepared... More

Black Bamboo is always good, always consistent and always mobbed for dinner. We order from here often and on weekends, holidays and snowy Sundays expect at least two hours for delivery or an hour for pickup - the food is that good. The steamed shrimp & scallops with veggies or chicken with greenbeans are my favorites, but I have never... More

I've come to black bamboo MANY times, and I'm always happy with the food and service. Delicious, fresh food. I've done take out, eaten there and catered food.

I love this place and usually go here once a month. Their eggrolls are fantastic and the service is very friendly and fast.

This is by far some of the best Chinese food my dh and I have ever had! We are visiting the area and it was getting late and wanted a quick, budget friendly meal. We looked up places and based on the reviews decided to give it a try...so glad we did! We had the teriyaki beef sticks and the... More

We got takeout from Black Bamboo for a party of 7 and got lots of things to share. The best was the moo shu pork, it was excellent but make sure to order extra pancakes. We also had the beef in black bean sauce, orange chicken, fried rice, potstickers (dough was too thick for my taste), crab Rangoon (not great)... More
