“Reasonable food”
Reviewed October 11, 2012

For Switzerland I thought the prices were reasonable, with chicken curry at 20.50 Swiss Franc (about £14), and rice another 6 Swiss Francs. The food was more than acceptable but the service was a little disjointed. The restaurant seems more geared up for Chinese visitors and residents than European. All in all not a bad meal with a total bill for four people of 143.20 Swiss Francs, about £100.

“Good asian food but service cn be improve”
Reviewed September 28, 2012

Tgis rest opens late until 2330pm, Food quality was ok for a chinese food in europe. The Service can be improve, atmosphere was poor as during our visit, there were large groups drinking beers, talking with very loud and annoying voices. The location was very good, in front of main street, close to interlaken central. And there were parking space available in front of the restaurant, and its free after 1900pm. Close to highway entrance towards grindelwald and lauterbrunnen. Very easy to find in gps. Surely comeback to this restaurant should i drive again to the area.

“Greasy and tasteless”
Reviewed August 29, 2012

We had the vegetarian noodles and veggie fried rice. Couldn't believe the amount of oil that was used. It was bland and had no salt or flavor. Took a long time for us to get anything and we couldn't get any spicy sauce. The waiter was nice and friendly, but the food was horrible.
Its conveniently located across the street steps from Interlaken OST and the youth hostel.
Great potential to improve food quality !

“Bamboo chinese restaurant -Interlaken”
Reviewed August 15, 2012

Located in the main strip of interlaken, across from youth hostel.
In few words- overpriced food with extremely rude service reminding one of Seinfield episode with Soup Nazi.
The attitude of the owners is " My way or the Highway". Ordered Kung Pao chicken, which was probably frozen and undercooked and when pointed out to owner/sever, the response was nothing. Despite restaurant being open and requesting the server for desert menu, the owner tells the server in front of us not to give the menu or just tell us only icecream is available.
On questioning what time does the restaurant closes, the answer was " very tired cooking".!!
Pros; good vegetarian & non veg options, try tofu in different sauces, fast service.
Cons; as above
Average price of each dish is approximately 23-25 swiss franc.
if one is looking for a quick fast expensive chinese meal with rude service, this is a perfect place.
