Located on Franklin Street, Bambusa is shaking up Manuka’s Asian dining scene with its creative menu that fuses together Chinese and Australian influences. For a quick snack, try some handmade dumplings with a variety of fillings, from pan-fried pork to hot & sour soup, or go all out with the shredded duck pancake or rock salt chicken wings followed by some hotpot, a noodle dish or some fresh seafood like the king prawns with xo sauce, or a Chinese classic like the roast duck. With its refined decor and superlative cuisine, Bambusa is a favourite among Canberra diners looking for a special pan-Asian dining experience. Beat the crowds and guarantee a table at Manuka’s Bambusa by making your reservation in advance!
This is one of the best Chinese restaurants I've been to. Excellent service, fresh, tasty food and a tasteful fit-out including a private function room and outdoor seating. Can't fault it.
Pleasant and enthusiastic staff. We were well looked after staff always seemed to be there when required without being intrusive. Food was sensational and very price competitive.
Wanted to try his famous dumplings. They were amazing, but the helpfulness of the person serving us, and the willingness to adapt his menu a little to give us the best range of choices, was absolutely fantastic. Friendly, helpful, flexible AND great food.
Great value for money! The food is tasty and unpretentious. The menu is extensive and pretty much caters to all dietary requirements. There’s definitely something for everyone!
As visitors to Canberra, we found Bambusa by chance and returned for the second visit that we booked. We arrived early and were impressed by the courteous and informed service. The food, which was innovative, was well cooked and very tasty. We particularly enjoyed the steamed fish hotpot and the mushroom dumplings, but the rest was very nice as well.
We often have a meal at Bambusa. On every occasion we have enjoyed delightful food. Last night was no exception. The food was delicious and the wait staff happy, helpful and most attentive. I can highly recommend Bambusa
Bambusa's menu has many dishes which are not offered at other Chinese/Malaysian restaurants which makes it a refreshing place to go. The atmosphere is casual but smart and there is good space between tables so that it is not noisy or crowded feeling. The service is excellent. And the food is fantastic.
This would have to be one of the best Asian restaurants in Canberra. William and the team at Bambusa look after every need and the food is absolutely delicious. The Shantung Lamb is a must!!
We were there early in the week so fairly quiet. They had our reservation first time I had booked through Quandoo so that was good. I like this restaurant. It is just as it appears to be. It is fairly casual and has a wide menu of Chinese and dumplings. Was a friend and myself - the duck spring rolls were really good and we shared Szechuan Chicken and rice so very simple. It was inexpensive and good service. Recommend for good casual Chinese.
Food was excellent as was the service. Bambusa is a superior restaurant and is my favourite in canberra. I recommend it highly for the best dining experience. Thank you
