Unlike the rest of Little Bourke St, the Bamboo House is a haven of quiet and good service. Peking Duck is their speciality, and it is the most amazing combinaiton of silky soft pancakes, crispy skin duck, vegetables and hoisin sauce.
The half duck with serve 2 people or one very greedy person!
The staff serve up the food rather than dump it in the middle of the table.

Great Chinatown experience. The duck pancakes were delicious and beautifully presented. Our lovely waiter did all the work for us all we had to do was eat!

We were seated (without a booking ) near the drink servery area, which meant there was a lot of trafic moving in and out around us.At least I got a first hand view on how drinks are served. The service started off being excellent, however as the restaurant began filling the service level dropped dramatically. The food was served in good time ,was enjoyable and reasonably priced. Overall a nice meal.

We chose to dine at Bamboo House when visiting Melbourne a few weeks ago - and I am so happy that we did. My husband and I enjoyed our meal immensely and agreed that it was the best Chinese meal we have ever had! We shared Peking Duck, a vegetable dish and a stir-fried chicken dish. The food was simply wonderful and the service was also excellent. I really appreciated the advice regarding choice of meals provided by our waiter. We were on holidays in Hong Kong and Maceau earlier this year but did not taste a meal in either of these countries which compared with the meal we enjoyed at Bamboo House. We will definitely return again when we next visit Melbourne.
