Been coming to this place for well over 10 years. Always excellent authentic food but what we come back for time and time again are their ducks. Peking and Tea Smoked - both with their unique flavor - both to die for. Their pot sticker and steam dumplings are also fantastic and for those who might want to try something sweet - give their red bean crispy pancake a go - all so so YUMMMY. If you haven't been, you must give it a go!

Having been rudely told we would have to wait outside by another "trendy" Asian restaurant that did not accept bookings, we made the decision to try Bamboo House due to its high ratings on Urban Spoon, I am glad we couldnt get a table at the other place!

As soon as the door opened a waiter dressed in an immaculate tuxedo ushered us to a table and provided unrivaled service all evening. The food was incredible from start to finish, and the wine list had some perfectly matched drinks to go with our meal.

My only regret is that we were not dressed to a standard befitting the restaurant, and that we didnt have time to go back for another meal before leaving. This is one restaurant not to be glossed over, we will definitely be back!

We called in late one night as we were staying at the Ovolo 6 doors up and were pleasantly surprised at the hospitality and service we received coming in off the street.
The place was fairly busy still but mostly tables finishing rather than starting their meals.
As this was now two months ago I can't recall exactly what we ate but every dish that came out was tasty, quality, well presented food at a reasonable price in enjoyable surroundings.
The only let down was we found this place on our last night of four and it was under our noses the whole time!
This is certainly on the cards for the next trip to Melbourne!

Having been put off by the take it or leave it high priced buffet of another local Chinese restaurant we liked the 4 price level banquet options available at the Bamboo House. Turned out to be great food. Served individually to each guest there were plenty of courses. The Peking duck was carved at the table with panache by the chef. Attentive but not rushed serviced and drinks at reasonable prices. Highly recommended.

I have visited this restaurant many many times, especially when going to the theatre as they do an awesome, delicious meal and quick. The staff are also very accommodating, the chef once drew a picture with the chocolate topping on my ice cream.

Make sure you order the cantonese steak and toffee apple, they are both amazing and best you'll ever have.
