Love the food. Their wonton soup is "to die for". My favorite dish is almond chicken with all white meat.

My wife and I wanted Chinese food while visiting Houghton so we tried Bambu on a Friday night. We arrived around 7:15 and despite seeing numerous empty tables, the hostess pleasantly told us it she was unable to seat anyone for a while. It's not...More

This is the only place in Houghton to sample Thai food. That alone makes Bambu worth a visit. Quiet, Zen, with a full bar and attentive service (thanks, Cindy!), the menu includes vegetarian and children's options as well as traditional dishes. My husband enjoyed his...More

So many good dishes on the menu. I usually get the Happy Family with fried rice. I like lunchtime the best. Good amount of food for a great price. Great atmosphere. Great waitstaff. Great owners.

The atmosphere is modern but also intimate. The food is excellent and consistent. Love the vegetarian options. Staff always friendly and attentive. This is a place that you would find in the city---except the prices would be exorbitant...whereas here they are very reasonable.

The food was poor quality and the service was sub standard. It was a $45 meal that should have been $20. The only positive was a good atmosphere.

Went here for lunch. Ordered the Triple Delight with Wonton soup. It was delish & I was impressed with the reasonable price. I would recommend this restaurant :)

My husband and I went to Bambu for lunch and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The food was very good, seasoned so that it was hot but not so hot that there was no flavor (always a turn off with spicy food). The service was efficient and...More
