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 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.

Brilliant. Sensational food, great service. Wine list could be expanded, but not a deal breaker. Highly recommend for a top feed with reasonable prices. I'll be back :)

The food was excellent and fair price. I will return and recommend to others for good value Asian fare. When we arrived they had no details of the reservation made through Quandoo.

Food was lovely and service was quick, some small glitches such as not offering knives and forks (not everyone is courageous enough to use chopsticks). Good venue.

Food was very average. I will not be visiting again. Not pricey and service was OK but with so much choice in Manuka, food has to be top notch.
