“great takeout”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 23, 2012

Hard to find real Chinese food in the suburbs, but this is my favorite take-out chinese-American place in Norwood. Good value, friendly and enough tables if you want to eat there too.

“inconsistent and not enough meat”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 1, 2012

well, you feel full but get hungry very quickly. That's because the meat portions are very small. You get more meat from McDonald's Angus burger! I usually order small because when I ordered large, there wasn't much difference. I have learned a secret..small and large is not much different. The meat portions are about the same. You should order entrees that come with broccoli,or snow peas. They have to be fresh and have the most fiber and value. Every other vegetables are either canned or frozen. Don't like that. I will still go to Bamboo because it is the only place where you will get rice with entree. Silly how many chinese restaurants or take outs are charging for RICE. People should complain because all chinese dishes except for Lo meins and other noodle entrees, have to be eaten with rice. That's why they are high in sodium. When I walk into a chinese eatery and if they tell me that rice doesn't come with my food, I laugh and walk out. They know I KNOW about Chinese food. Rice is like bread in Asia. If they don't give you rice, it's like getting a hamburger without the buns. Get it? So for that reason I do like bamboo but still I never feel full. Bamboo also have different cooks so the taste is inconsistent. Sometimes it's bland and sometimes it's well flavored. I will go nevertheless if I get a craving for quick chinese food.

“The Best Chinese take out in Norwood!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2012

We've been ordering from Bamboo House 2 for over 4 years. They are courteous, fast, reasonably priced and have lots of options. They have many menu options that are healthy and not fried (which is hard to find in Chinese take out). My wife and I love the steamed chicken with mixed vegetables with the black bean sauce.

“Great buffet”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2010

Great lunch buffet, better than any around and a little more expensive. Thr food really is of a better quality- take it from one who has eaten a few too many lunches at chinese buffets over the years. Soup is not included with the buffet price but it also is superior to the typical hot and sour or egg drop from a can served elsewhere. They have sushi (for those who like that sort of thing, this is the sort of thing you will like), some dim sum offerings, and ice cream for dessert. Fun for a group lunch.
