We eat here almost every month with our extended family which range in age from 16 to 88. The restaurant is run by Richard, the owner who is genuinely very charismatic and extremely funny and always cracking jokes. The food is excellent and the service is friendly and efficient. Our favourites are the hot and sour soup, the salt and... More

Bambusia has been consistent in the excellence of food, the friendliness of staff and the efficiency of table service. Amazingly this has continued for decades. Great value for money, too. Well and truly a cut above the usual suburban Chinese restaurant. Well done RIchard Leong.

Delicious $13, $14 and $15 (+ if desired eg duck was about $16??) takeaway dishes. We could have eaten in - looked pretty comfy. Uncle / Maitre D was super friendly and accommodating: cooking my vegan cousin's food in fresh oil and creating a dish on the spot for him.

Visited here in 2010 and 2013 and 2015 My mouth is watering as I count down the days to my next visit in march 2017. This really is a little jewel of a restaurant. The food is excellent from first page to last and Richard and his staff are friendly and knowledgeable in their field. See you all in March

We dined here on wet wintery evening some time last year. It was not our first occasion and generally we had found the food to be good. However on this occasion I am prompted to write a review as every time my children ask for deep fried ice cream, I think of Bambusia. And I think of how on this... More

We have been eating here for 25 years. The unique variety and flavours are second to none. The food has always been consistent,cooked that very special Asian way. Would highly recommend the Bambusia to any Chinese/Asian food lovers. Once you have tried the food you will always go back.

Hands down our favourite CHINESE in Sydney , and that's saying something as we have been eating there over 15 yrs . The Menu is very extensive , but we have our favourite dishes . Never have complained ever . My favourite is the combination omelette , and crispy chicken on the bone with lemon sauce . n

My long time friends Richard and May who own the Bambusia Restaurant in Bondi Junction. Thank you both for your friendship, kindness and generosity. I have never eaten at a better restaurant and your Combination Soup, Eight Treasure Soup with Kapitan Prawn, Ninja Chicken are truly fabulous. Such a shame you are over 16,000 miles away from the UK.

Have heard so much about this place over the years as a long time eastern suburbs resident and always wanted to visit. I finally got the chance ! A disappointment I am sad to say . The kids running around from other tables and screeching is something that I guess can not be fully controlled, but management did not appear... More

Thankyou trip advisor for pointing us to this restaurant. Staying at the Meriton for 1 night we were looking for something tasty cheerful and close by. The food and service were good. Honey prawns big and luscious. $50 for 2 with softdrinks a good feed for a reasonable price. The locals know about this gem, there was a stream of... More
