We always have a great time at Bambusa, good service and great food at a reasonable price, what else can you ask for. I would recommend giving them a try.

Bambusa has an interesting menu with some dishes we've not encountered anywhere else. Fluffy Duck is one example. Among or favourites are Salt and pepper squid and Shantung Lamb - both excellently done. Tables are well spaced and well sized so that it is a very comfortable restaurant in all respects.

This is one of the best Chinese restaurants I've been to. Excellent service, fresh, tasty food and a tasteful fit-out including a private function room and outdoor seating. Can't fault it.

As visitors to Canberra, we found Bambusa by chance and returned for the second visit that we booked. We arrived early and were impressed by the courteous and informed service. The food, which was innovative, was well cooked and very tasty. We particularly enjoyed the steamed fish hotpot and the mushroom dumplings, but the rest was very nice as well.

We often have a meal at Bambusa. On every occasion we have enjoyed delightful food. Last night was no exception. The food was delicious and the wait staff happy, helpful and most attentive. I can highly recommend Bambusa

Bambusa's menu has many dishes which are not offered at other Chinese/Malaysian restaurants which makes it a refreshing place to go. The atmosphere is casual but smart and there is good space between tables so that it is not noisy or crowded feeling. The service is excellent. And the food is fantastic.

We were there early in the week so fairly quiet. They had our reservation first time I had booked through Quandoo so that was good. I like this restaurant. It is just as it appears to be. It is fairly casual and has a wide menu of Chinese and dumplings. Was a friend and myself - the duck spring rolls were really good and we shared Szechuan Chicken and rice so very simple. It was inexpensive and good service. Recommend for good casual Chinese.

This would have to be one of the best Asian restaurants in Canberra. William and the team at Bambusa look after every need and the food is absolutely delicious. The Shantung Lamb is a must!!
