The food at Bamboo Basket Southbank is the reason I have rated it as highly as I have. Everyone enjoyed each of the wide variety of dishes we ordered, with the duck with noodles being the stand out. One small quibble with the food was the rice - both steamed and fried were overcooked and lacked that fluffiness that most good Chinese restaurants are able to achieve.

On the negative side, we found the restaurant to be very noisy even though it was not full on the day. This detracted from the enjoyment of the occasion as people found it difficult to converse around the large rectangular table we had been allocated.

However, overall, if you like noodle-based Chinese food, the Bamboo Basket delivers pretty well.

Everything about this place from the food to the gorgeous interior is a great experience. Like a mini theatre you can watch the chefs making the dumplings from the street and then wander in to sample the delicious result.

We wandered in to the Bamboo Basket and enjoyed a lovely selection of dumplings. All very tasty and not expensive either. The service was fast, friendly and professional. Looking forward to another visit next time I am in Brisbane.

I have been to Bamboo Basket a few times, and it was always good, however this time I was not impressed. Service was terrible, manager full of excuses, pork belly was sub standard, prawn shell in dumplings. Shame because in the past it's been great but lunch cost $90 so we won't return.

Took a takeaway food from this place while staying at a friend's place not too far.

Great taste in this food, with adequate portions and friendly service when you pop in the shop.

I would definitely come back should I stay in Brisbane again, and would definitely recommend it to my fellow visitors.
