Great Hot and Sour Soup, great menu and wonderful place to pick up food. Since the Pandemic they only have been serving take out but I’ve eaten there for 30+ years and still love their food1

The food was savory which we enjoyed in a pleasant atmosphere. The restaurant had a steady clientele and the prices were moderate. I enjoyed my dining experience especially considering parking, because of its location, was challenging.

Excellent service, good food...the restaurant is getting a little "tired" and could use some TLC. And, someone needs to shovel the parking area and sidewalk when it snows. Egg drop soup is very good as is the Moo Shu chicken. Good lunch prices and large...portions of food.More

We have patronized Pine and Bamboo Garden for many years. The Chinese food is always delicious. The family who owns the restaurant has lived in Shawnee a long time and believe in supporting the community. We do both dine-in and carry-out. Either way the quality...is superior, A great place to have a nice meal!More

Took the kids there last night. We ordered 3 appetizers, 2 cups of soup, 1 entree, and 3 drinks. Bill came to just under $50. They had incense burning everywhere. When you walk in the front door it's really nice, but after walking through the...restaurant and see it burning 2 or 3 other places and start paying more attention, you realise they're using it to cover up the weird smell the building has, which I didn't realize until we were leaving. One section was closed because the a/c was broke. Food was ok. Spring rolls were weird though. Not like any ones I've had. Service was decent. Not sure we will be back until the place gets cleaned up. That weird smell made me really wonder..... Time to find an alternative, I think.More

We had this delivered via Door Dash so I can’t speak to the place’s atmosphere but the food isn’t good. We got dumplings, egg rolls, and seafood mix with fried noodles. None of it had much taste at all. The egg rolls even smelled strange....Unlike any egg rolls I’ve ever had. The only positive I can mention is that the preparation time was quick. The cost was rather high and it’s not at all a good deal for the money. I do not recommend this place at all.More

We haven't been to Pine & Bamboo Garden in a long time, but it's still as good as it was before! My favorite things are the shrimp dumplings and the turnip cakes (萝卜糕) on their dim sum carts. This is one of the best places...for dim sum in the area and I'd totally recommend it!More

Our "regular" dim sum restaurant was closed and my family knows how crazy I am about dim sum so we read all the reviews and decided to try, for the first time, the Pine and Bamboo Garden. We tasted most of the dim sum they...served, most were really good. The cart service was a bit slow, we had to ask the waitress to send over the cart, but all in all, we enjoyed the dim sum and when I am next in Kansas I will most probably go there again.More

A recent ownership change at my preferred spot sent me out looking for a new place. This one was recommended by a friend. I ordered the Chicken with hot pepper & peanuts, Diced chicken with cashews, sweet & sour, chicken spring roll and crab rangoon....The family did not like any of the offerings. The chicken spring roll was slimy, the rangoon too creamy..not sure there was any flavor at all. The chicken with hot pepper & peanuts was passable, but there were too many chunks of vegetables. All in all a very expensive try...More

I had lunch here today and had the Chicken Szechwan Style. It comes with your choice of egg drop or hot and sour soup (I had the hot and sour and have had better, but it was good nevertheless) and egg roll or crab Rangoon...(I had the egg roll and it was crispy, hot and tasty). The entre is served with a very generous portion of pork fried rice. While it took awhile to be seated, service was excellent and all the food served very hot. To be fair, we didn't arrive until around 1pm and there weren't that many tables taken. I'd go back. I've attached a photo of my lunch entre. Thanks for reading. I’ll appreciate a thumbs up below if you’ve found this helpful.More

Family owned and operated. Excellent service. Excellent food with an extensive menu. Everything is cooked fresh and each dish has it's own flavor, unlike many Chinese restaurants where all the dishes taste basically the same. They use only fresh green beans in their food. On...our last visit, they told us that the beans they had gotten in were not very good, so they did not accept them and are not serving bean dishes until the fresh beans come in. It is that kind of care for the quality of the food they are serving that makes a difference. Restaurant is old school Chinese. Larger round tables have a lazy Susan in the center to facilitate family dining. Highly recommend!More

Our family of five showed up and was immediately seated. The service was a little slow but the food was worth the wait. Everything was really good like normal. The prices are very reasonable. Good Chinese on the east side of shawnee
