Great food as always. Service was prompt. Peking duck is probably the best I've had in Australia. Lovely ambience, suitable for couples, groups and families with young kids.

Beautifully presented delicious food, great service and lovely ambience - what more could you want. It's been around for a long time and still one of the best chinese restaurants in Melbourne.

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.

Bamboo House is always a pleasure. Professional yet unobtrusive staff look to your every need. Food is delicious, beautifully presented and not too hastily served. Our favourite dish is Peking Duck...yum!

From the moment we walked in we were blown away by the ambience of the restaurant and the hospitality and friendliness of the staff - food was wonderful and tasty - cannot fault it. There was a little misunderstanding re the main meals but once we pointed it out it was rectified very very quickly - will definitely return :)

Anne and the staff are exceptional and the food amazing. I go to Bamboo Palace a few times a month and it never disappoints. Just let them bring out what the specials are for the day - it's a great way to experience it.

The restaurant offers probably the best Peking duck comparing to even most Hong Kong restaurants. The favour is truly traditional. However, as the restaurant is maintaining first class service catering to the customers, there is never enough time. The hostess is most hospitable.
