I have never had chicken fried rice that was not fresh very very salty and did not even taste like chicken fried rice. The eggs rolls looked like they were deep fried and well done. It was terrible as it was delivered as a gift at prime time, should be fresh

Here's a place where you could have snow crab dinner at good price. The place is nice and clean but only it is a little bit far from downtown Houston.

This place is very clean, especially the washrooms which was very nice. When we ate here we were the only people in the restaurant, it was not busy at all. The foods with sauce, like the shrimp, tasted good. The vegetables and fruit were also okay. Some foods were cold, but I assume that is because we went when it... More

This is probably the cleanest looking buffet in Peterborough. 12.99 is cheaper than south China's dinner buffet but when we got their the selection was dwindling and looked dried up. The waitress, looked like the mom of the business, was kind and offered refills of whatever we wanted. The food was similar to the other buffets. Low quality food but... More

We went to the Bamboo Restaurant for a family birthday celebration and I could not have been more disappointed. At 6 pm many of the trays had dried out food (actually thought I had a piece of onion but it was an entire water chestnut dried beyond recognition) or the trays were almost empty and it took our entire meal...

Dec 30 2014 ate the buffet at this restaurant. Presentation of food was disgusting - everything looked like it had been reheated who knows how many time. Selection was equally poor. I WILL NEVER EAT AT THIS RESTAURANT AGAIN AND NEITHER SHOULD ANYONE ELSE.

We were next day setting up for a wedding reception so we thought we'd give the Bamboo a shot. It was simply excellent. The food was fresh, hot, and homemade. We had takeout and our order was ready within 15 minutes. The interior of the restaurant is spacious, modern, well lit, and spotless. The staff are extremely personable and very... More
