Nothing special here. Ordered pork wonton and beef n broccoli. Both seemed like your average "chinese" restaurant style dish. Next time I will look elsewhere.

I had a noodle bowl. The noodles were not properly cooked and it's was mostly bland broth. I'm not a picky eater and I don't want to say all there food was bad, but this meal defiantly was. We had deep fried ice cream for desert and it was chewy and soggy all at the same time. Very gross.

Used to go hear every time we were in Banff as my friend and I love Thai food. On my latest visit, December 2016, noticed that their sign read "Chinese and Asian cuisine ' and no longer thai.. So definitely disappointed. Its not a great restaurant atmosphere wise, all staff are Asian with not the best English, but the Thai... More

The Bamboo Garden has taken over the old Silver Dragon space. The food was hit and miss and the prices were high, even by Banff standards. The minced pork and eggplant was very good. The lemongrass shrimp and the fried rice were fine. The lemon chicken was actually cool to the touch when it came out and mostly flavourless (overpowered... More

I've visited here on a few occasions. Always had a very tasty meal and good service. Small tip, if you like pop as much as I do then you always appreciate the free refills, they don't make it clear on their menu that they do not do free refills.

We are not experts in Chinese food, but we enjoy it and have been to Chinese restaurants in several different countries. The restaurant looked a bit old fashioned in terms of decor, and could have done with new paint on the walls and new carpet. We were seated in the area at the front by the large window (the view...

I would ask anyone coming here not to expect the luxury one would get in a fancy restaurant. If you can see past the dated decor, this place is for you. Hands down the best Chinese food I have had since moving to Alberta. Yes the portions are smaller, but I would rather pay more for quality than eat a... More

Had dinner here the night of the Santa Claus parade. Very quiet and on the second floor. Ordered chicken, cashew, and veggies, salad rolls, wonton soup, and the house fried rice. For a small restaurant, the service was good, the staff pleasant, and the food was good. You also got a generous portion. The price was reasonable as well. We... More

Not good, dirty/gross, and a little pricey. In addition, they brought out the wrong order and argued with us about what we ordered...then brought us the really tough ginger beef we ordered....keep looking

While the food was average at best the decor in this restaurant was well below average. The carpet is worn & dirty, the chairs are stained and the paint on the walls is chipped off in many areas. If you can't keep the customer area clean & tidy I fear what the kitchen might look like. For the price of... More
