This is by far the best Asian food in town hands down. Not only is there food great but they work very clean too. Having food allergies eating Chinese is always a bit risky. Usually if I can find something that won't make me Ill it has lost all flavor. However I have never had that problem here. All the staff know exactly what is in everything that they make. If you do have an allergy your not going to be stuck choosing from only two things on the menu. Aside from that the food its self is actually good and the staff are very professional. They put a lot of work and pride in to what they do. While the take out food may not always be as good as when you eat in its still hard to complain.

Although there are several fine Chinese restaurants in the Portsmouth area, this little spot on Penhallow Street truly stands out. It was lunchtime when I visited and many places can be noisy and rushed at this time. Not so here. Service was prompt and my selection was fresh and tasty. There are about two dozen lunch specials offered and each comes with an appetizer. I opted for the Crab Rangoon. Prepared minutes before delivery, It was perhaps the warmest, freshest and tastiest I have ever had and truly filled (and isn't that what filling is supposed to mean?) This little spot overlooks the top of Ceres Street and the tugboats, offering a pretty good view along with reasonably-priced fare.

Delicious food, great service with Wonton soup to die for. Try the thin noodles, yum. First Chinese restaurant I've tried in the area and I'd go back.

Growing up as a Yorker, I had been a Greenleaves loyal customer but haven't been satisfied for a while now. We are always out and about in Portsmouth, and love trying new places to eat. Finally poped into Pink Bamboo today and I am SO happy I did. Great food, not the artificial chinese taste. Hot, tasty and good. My boyfriend has a bad MSG allergy and after green leaves continuously making him sick, he was scared to eat chinese again. He was "wowed" by the first bite. He got a house special app while I got a soup, great tea, rice and a veggie meal. THe broc in garlic sauce has a punch and is full of flavor. I could go back tonight!
Will def. be back!
