“Reliable superior Melbourne Chinatown fixture”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 24, 2013

One of the classier Little Bourke Street Chinese establishments. All the standard Chinese favourites from duck pancakes to a wide range of mains are delicious. Big and not-too-unreasonable wine list. Excellent service on three recent visits plus linen table cloths, bow tie'd waiters and a not-too-noisy room. Said to be a favorite Liberal Party haunt.

Delicious food, good portion sizes, very friendly and attentive service. A little pricier, but worth it. Highly recommend!

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 18, 2013

We called in at about 7pm for dinner on a Sunday evening. We ordered some dumplings, spring rolls, salt and pepper squid, Cantonese beef and some steamed rce as well as a bottle of wine. Food was truly delicious, fresh, tasty and served very well. Bill was $140, reasonable we thought. Def be back.

“Pretty good really...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 17, 2013 via mobile

Our party of six rolled up without a booking, on a busy Saturday night, and yet they quickly created a table for us. Ann, our host, was efficient and good humoured, and the food was competent. Dumplings were especially good, as was the sang chow bow (?). The peking duck was not brilliant, but all in all, an enjoyable meal

Bamboo House is a well known and patronized chinese restaurant in the heart of Chinatown on the corner of Punch Lane and Little Bourke street.The menu is extensive very good quality and not overpriced.The wine list is also extensive and can cater to all tastes and budgets.Anne is a great hostess and has a fantastic memory for names of repeat clients.Alex is also one of the hosts and has a sense of humour that adds to any meal.I recent took som echinese guest from Taiwan there for dinner and all were very impressed with the quality of the food and the service.Well worth a visit to overseas visitors and locals.It can get very crowded thursday to saturday so booking is essential
