Best Chinese in E-town ...

There are not many options for Chinese food in the Ft. Knox/E-town area. The Green Bamboo comes highly recommended by many people. This was only our second visit, the first being "okay."

3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

after reading the reviews and having lived in an area with no real Chinese food choices I was looking forward to this place. Menu choice is lacking. Great deal for a combo meal. Large portions. The hot and sour soup was delicious. I wasn't at all happy with the "fried" rice the look of it was not appealing and the... More

Both menu and Wed buffet beat any Chinese I've ever had. After thirty years in service, they remain very good!! Little more expensive than some of the competitors but quality makes it worth it.

Noticed several Chinese restaurants in town but chose this place based on a recommendation from a long time resident. Ordered carry out and it was ready when it was promised. Spent approx $33 on plenty of food for 2 adults & 2 hungry boys. Mongolian beef dinner with Egg Drop Soup, fried rice (extra charge) and egg roll was just... More

We eat here usually on out anniversary. Food is always very well prepared and the atmosphere is quiet and somewhat romantic not the typical Asian place. Very nice service.

I used to eat there quite often but went once solo for the buffet and the woman at the cash register ignored me and answered four take out phone calls. The fifth call I grabbed the phone and said, "She will be with you in just a moment, I have been standing here patiently while she took 4 take out... More

I've been eating at this place for over 30 years. I consider it to be the best Chinese restaurant anywhere and I'm well traveled. I live an hour away and will drive those two hours round trip just to get to enjoy the delicious food there.
