“A great oriental menu with excellent food and service”
Reviewed 12 November 2011

The beef rendang and nasi goreng were outstanding. The service was efficiently delivered and with a smile. The prices were very reasonable and the $2 per person BYO was a bonus. Hard to imagine how anything could be bettered. Well done to the Shanghainese chef too.

“A great lunch option”
Reviewed 22 October 2011

We stopped off at the Bamboo Box for a quick bite before heading off to do the tourist thing and were very impressed with the quality of our meals. I had the curry fish which was very tasty while my partner had the beef with vegetables. We were in and out in 20 minutes flat. Good option if you don't have time for a long lunch.
