“4* for the food 5* for the ambiance”
Reviewed 25 November 2012

This is one of those places you either love or your wife makes you get up and leave. They have a large menu that is sure to please. I had a tasty Korean noodle soup. Pretty sure that was spaghetti in there, but it was still great. Taxidermy and other funky decor, priceless. Bamboo house should be on one of those annoying foodtv shows : one of the most unique places I have ever eaten.

“Excellent Korean”
Reviewed 24 June 2012

The Bamboo House is right on Rt 29 but north of Cville. It doesn't look like a great place from the outside (a friend told me she assumed it was just a front for something when I told her we ate there! LOL). The food was excellent, even compared to Korean places in NYC. The only thing we did not like was the complimentary tea; the type of tea it was just wasn't our taste. Stick to other beverages and you will be happy!

“Excellent Korean BBQ”
Reviewed 12 June 2012

Love this authentic korean restaurant in Charlottesville. Perhaps less frequented as it is a bit way off along seminole trail beyond Target and Walmart but well worth a visit. Needless to say the signature dish here is the BBQ beef (BULGOGI) which is both tender and moist. The pan fried scallion pancake (Pa Jun) was delicious, and there were generous portion of kimchi and cabbage provided with the meal. We also had the hot bean curd casserole (soup) which was hot! The serving are quite big so best for a party of 4 or more if you wish to sample more variety of the menu.
