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 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!!
Outstanding food. Good service. Relaxed atmosphere. Try the "Peking Duck Three Ways" .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. ..
Service excellent, food excellent as always. Great choice of food e very dish cooked too perfection. Only slight problem, squid and chicken wings too salty
Great food and a reasonable wine list. Staff are friendly and efficient. The place is always busy but service is prompt. They handle gluten-free really well.
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.
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.
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
The dumplings were amazing, the presentation of food was good and the service was fantastic. The atmosphere modern arty deco and the chilli fried prawns are a must try Natasha
Great food, great wine and great service. Couldn't think of anyway to make it better.price was good and location was close to movie theatre. Free parking nearby on Saturday night.
We went on a Monday night and the restaurant was quiet. The food was good and the service friendly. The wine we initially ordered wasn't ordered and our second choice took a little while to arrive.
