“Always very busy”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 30, 2013

Very busy all the time which is a good sign for a business in this day and age. This is where everyone in Blenheim has a birthday or other celebration. We've been here so many times and usually get a good meal. It's not my favourite in town just because there's not a great selection for vegetarians but it is popular for meat eaters.

“Good value and great food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 29, 2013

This is a popular Chinese restaurant with great food and good service. Service was very quick and you might want to ask them to slow it down if you want to linger.
My only gripe is the $7 per bottle corkage on BYO wine which I thought was a little too much - especially as we had to actually ask for an ice bucket.
Would pay to book a table as we got the last one when we booked on Saturday morning.

“yummy asian food to comfort my homesick”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 27, 2013 via mobile

i noticed this restaurant was always full of customers on weekend nights and wondered what on earth attracted people to dine here. to our surprise, it is asian food! we tried the dong po rou pork belly and the shrimp dumplings, both of them turned out extraordinarily delicious! i couldnt believed i could have had such wonderful asian dishes out of auckland or other big cities such as christchurch in NZ. great value, great taste!

“tasty variety”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2013

We've really enjoyed coming here. It's a beautiful venue with great serving times and good food. The staff are friendly. There's a variety of dishes so there's something to suit most peoples tastes. It's very well suited for large groups looking to have a relaxing and fun evening.

If you're near Blenheim or passing through you really should pay a visit to Bamboo Garden.
