Restaurant details

This restaurant is nestled right around all the major hotels near the Gateway Arch. Hilton, Hyatt, Drury, Marriott, etc. It has a small bar that can serve 5 or 6 people. For such a prime location the food and drink prices are reasonable, lower than I expected. I ordered the Mongolian beef stirfry. You can tell they use well trained Chinese chefs in the back because the dish did have "guo chi", meaning optimal high temperature required for good authentic stirfry. However, the food was overly sugary, which is the sure sign that they serve Americanized Chinese food. If that's your thing, you will not be disappointed.

They also serve a lunch buffet which I did not check out. No doubt it will serve all the crowd pleasers like General Tso's chicken, kung pao chicken, etc, and no doubt in American style. Again, many people don't mind the over-sweetened taste, and it can be a good bet for you. For me, the hunt for authentic Chinese food in St. Louis continues.

We happened to just walk into Bamboo Bistro, as it was close to our hotel.
The service was swift and friendly. The food was superb!!! If I ever get back to St. Louis I'd make sure to eat here again.

Stopped in this place for lunch. It was very average chinese food. Would not go out of my way to go to this place. There is plenty of food available on the buffet but there was absolutely nothing special about this place. Probably would not return, would look for another restaurant with Chinese food.

We have eaten here many times when we visit St. Louis. It’s one of our family favorites. The staff is friendly, the restaurant is clean and the food is great! Our teenagers ask to go here every time we are in town!!

We ate here while staying in downtown Saint Louis. The Bamboo has an extensive menu. Both our meals were excellent along with the service.
