Excellent service, quite fast during lunch time which is good for business diners. Duck is the highlight of our reason for dining here, we also love that the food is portion served to us at the table. Wine list is fantastic with great choices at the top end.

Lovely birthday meal with my son. Mermaid's tresses was a treat, delicious. Dumplings were fresh, tasty and enjoyable. Satay beef went down a treat with the birthday boy.

Bamboo House has to be one of the best Chinese Restaurants in Melbourne. The food is excellent. We started with Assorted Dim Sum which were delicious, Pekin Duck was excellent, meaty pieces of duck, crispy skin and minimal fat. Sliced beef with shallots was tasty and our friends ordered a combination noodle dish which was okay but not something we would usually order, a little bland for us, but they loved it. My husband tells me the wine was reasonably priced. Service was friendly, quick and waitress helpful. We are looking forward to our next visit to Bamboo House.

This was my second visit to the Bamboo House Restaurant, I found it to be most welcoming, the service was excellent, even though they were extremely busy. The food was amazing with many many choices, and served with adequate time to enjoy each course. I absolutely love the way the waiters memorise your order and bring it to you exactly how you asked. Wine was beautiful and they made sure glass was never empty. The staff were very friendly and explained the various dishes well. Pricing was very good, Will definately be going back.

Great dining experience at Bamboo House. Very busy and noisy but we were moved to a quieter table when we mentioned this. Service is excellent, attentive but not intrusive. Half serve of Peking duck is succulent and tasty and served all ready to eat. Sweet and sour pork was very tasty with fresh light batter. Wine list is comprehensive and reasonably priced compared to other good restaurants. Our go to Chinese restaurant whenever we are in Melbourne. Highly recommended.

What a wonderful restaurant with fantastic staff! We were a group of 9 who had an early show to get to and had an hour to order, eat and get out. We explained this to the very accommodating staff and they did a wonderful job in ensuring that we were on time. We even had them decide our dishes for us to save time, and everything was delicious. Amongst others, we had Peking duck, which was prepared by the chef next to our table, and oysters 3 ways, which were eaten and enjoyed by everyone, even the few who "don't like oysters". One of our party is allergic to all seafood and was served, without fuss, his own equally delicious dishes. The wine list was impressive and reasonably priced. The food was exceptional value. We can't wait to go back and spend a more leisurely time enjoying the food and hospitality.

I have had both lunch and dinner at Bamboo House on several occasions over the past few years and have always found it to be excellent. The food and service are of the highest order. Also a special thanks to Ann who is front of house Ann always welcomes you with a smile and is most helpful.

This long-standing and well -regarded restaurant was my pick for taking an elderly lady to lunch. I booked on line and asked for quiet corner. On arrival, I again asked if our allotted table was a quiet one - the staff seemed non-committal. So at first it was ok and then the restaurant filled up - mainly with men, and it became very difficult to hear our friend with her soft voice. She was wearing hearing aids ...although she said it was all ok, I know they must have just amplified everything. In defence of the restaurant - it does have cloth on tables, and it does have carpet - which makes it better than most. But today the noise transcended all that, not helped by the low ceiling and large areas of glass. There were other areas where we could have been placed - and I should have insisted on that. The very junior staff were efficient, but not attentive to our comfort, and we had to chase them for our needs. They certainly did not have the training or experience to perceive our problem. The food was of good quality and we enjoyed that. Overall - I will not be going there again if it is my decision.
