“Best Peking Duck”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 June 2014

I would have to say that the Peking Duck we had at this restaurant was amazing and judging by the amount of other people having it I would say it's a restaurant favorite.

“The best Chinese we have had”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 June 2014

We went to the bamboo house in China Town for the fourth time last night. It is the best Chinese food we have had. It's on a par with the Japanese restaurants Nobu. The food is a taste sensation with every bite. But maybe it's what you order. We ordered Oysters three ways times two. This was for two people. Steam prawn dumplings, steamed pork siu mei and steamed dumplings with scallops. We then had lamb cutlets. Each portion is two cutlets so we ordered two portions. The best lamb we have ever had. That's saying something from a couple from New Zealand. We enjoyed the lamb so much we had a repeat order and then to finish a repeat order of the oysters.
We have been on the Paleo diet and this meal felt really healthy. Maybe not, who knows, but we really enjoyed it. We will return. You should book to be on the safe side.

“THE place to go for a Peking and Tea Smoked Duck”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 May 2014

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!
