Up to its usual high standard in every respect, excellent.
Delicious food, great friendly service. Pepper steak and dumplings, wow!
2 noisy groups, combined with the acoustics, were a bit unpleasant but everything else was fantastic
Great service and food (chicken basil hot pot). Would definitely go again to try the dumplings.
I can see why Bambusa is so popular. I have dined here many times and most often it is nearly full, especially on a Saturday night. Bambusa is in the living heart of cosmopolitan Manuka. The prices are affordable when compared with other similar restaurants. My curry puffs were very tasty. The steamed duck with mushrooms was delicious and not too spicy. When I asked the waitress for extra vegetables she happily obliged. My tip is to ask for cutlery if you are not good at using chopsticks. My second tip is to book online early beforehand. I am sure that I will dine here again. I can recommend dining at Bambusa.
This was my second time going to Bambusa and the experience wasn't great. We arrived on a Friday night before it got busy but waited for at least 30 minutes after ordering to get our entrees, waited for another 40 minutes before the first main started serving. We were starving and disappointed. In the meantime we saw many takeaways getting ordered and ready before anything came to our table. A table was getting priority services because one of the restaurant owners was sitting there. When we requested the waitress to check with the kitchen, she walked passed us many times but didn't come back with any responses. The table next to us also waited for too long that they went to get chips from somewhere else for the kids. Both of our table and their table had more than 8 people. I was surprised that none of the floor staff didn't think of checking with the kitchen. The same waitress also was supposed to refilled our tea but she walked away with the pot, put it at the counter and forgot about it. It was an embarrassing experience as we were there to celebrate Lunar New Year. The first time I went to Bambusa was very good and the food was amazing so we were very excited to go there again, but this time was very disappointing we would not go there again.
Last Thursday we had a small family gathering at Bambusa for dinner. It was our first visit to this restaurant and it turned out to be the perfect place for us. We were given a lovely quiet corner, the service was excellent, the food amazingly tasty and the portions extremely generous. We will certainly go back again.
Bambusa has an interesting menu with some dishes we've not encountered anywhere else. Fluffy Duck is one example. Among or favourites are Salt and pepper squid and Shantung Lamb - both excellently done. Tables are well spaced and well sized so that it is a very comfortable restaurant in all respects.
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
