Lucy the owner of Bamboo house has been making and serving real food in this location for over 25 years. Her food is cooked there, not prepared and heated, and the quality is excellent. The facility is quite old, the carpets are dirty and the place has not been updated in years, but the food is the best Chinese food... More

Stopped by at lunch to eat their buffet. Selection was very good. Clean atmosphere and you could tell the seating had just been recently upholstered. The staff was very friendly and helpful when asked questions about the buffet choices. Would highly recommend this restaurant and we will be back.

The Food Was Fresh (We Arrived At 11:30 Am) Tasty, And Had A Variety Of Flavors, A Little Heavy On The Five Spice. Workers Very Nice. The Buffet Had About 15 Items. Price Ok. But, We Won't Be Going Back. Place Was Very Dirty, Saw Cockroaches And We Both Had Unpleasant Mild "After Effects"

You can always count on Bamboo House for a solid, economical and delicious lunch. Other Chinese buffets in town may have more but they are often a miss. You CAN'T miss at Bamboo House. Have been going here for years.

Bamboo House was the closest restaurant to the home we rented for our stay in Tallahassee. The dinner buffet had about 8 different choices in addition to the dessert bar. Honestly I read the reviews and went anyway. There were many Asians eating there, which I think is a great endorsement. We were very happy with the food quality and... More

This is a small buffet that that does a good job on a small number of dishes rather than attempting a huge variety. They have three soups, hot and sour and miso, both of which I recommend, and egg drop, which I do not. This is an unusual egg drop soup because it has a good bit of corn in... More

Very good food. Most folks were there for the buffet but we ordered off the menu and it was great. The gentleman in charge told us they were the oldest restaurant in Tallahassee. I have to say the building and furnishings looked it. Another downfall no alcohol.

When this restaurant opened we went every week. Over time it's become absolutely nasty. They've tried to paint over the mold on the ceilings and wall, the carpet is absolutely solid grease, and even the parking lot has more pot holes than asphalt. Too bad the food is great, but just can't eat there any more.

Being a buffet I expected a larger variety of choices of entrees. This place is one the oldest Chinese restaurants in Tallahassee and it shows. The place is dirty and the walls and bathrooms are filthy. There needs to be a total renovation of the facilities and maybe I would return.
