Excellent food. Not the Bangladeshi Chinese but Chinese Chinese. The big fish was perfect. The tofu was good. Prices are a bit exorbitant but worth it. Pure Chinese ambience.

Awful service. Came on a recommendation. Waiters unhelpful. No advice on menu. Fish Fillet with Pickled Vegetable could have fed 5 people. Tasted unpleasant and full of bones. No napkins and had to ask. Expensive and complete waste of money. Did not meet expectations

We have been disappointed twice at Bamboo Shoot. The wait staff clearly do not enjoy their jobs and are dismissive and rude. We ordered a sweet and sour shrimp dish that tasted like a metal can. My wife and I could not manage even one bite. We returned the dish and mentioned the shrimp "did not taste right." The waiter came back and ensured us the shrimp was fresh and delicious (?). They discounted the dish 10%, but in the end, we still ended up paying about 800TK for a dish we immediately returned for fear of getting sick. We will not be back.

On should book table in advance
They serve delicious food.
Service is little slow hence they ask for everything in one go
It gets crowded and few people may have loud conversation also
Mostly office goers
Not recommended for family

Discovered Bamboo Shoot near my hotel in Uttara Sector 3 along the main road. When I observed several Chinese businessmen and women going up to the 12th floor of the Paradise Tower next to Aarong, I knew it was going to be legit. Extensive menu with a lot of meat dishes. However, I was able to order a complete vegetarian meal that included clay pot bean curd with mixed vegetables, Chinese baby cabbage stir fried in garlic served with egg and vegetable fried rice. It was delicious...very tasty meal and the real deal. Bamboo Shoot is authentic Chinese cuisine and they do not advertise, it is all by word of mouth. Pleasant atmosphere, Chinese traditional music and very clean! Excellent service and staff! I highly suggest going with a group so you can enjoy several dishes together. You won't find better Chinese food at these affordable prices in Dhaka, I will be back.
