Like others, I enjoyed this place under previous management but it is now (under the name East Kitchen) quite unsatisfactory. Cold food, empty bins, tough lemon chicken, musty tasting mushrooms, inedible garlic ribs, tasteless ice tea and very poor service. This was while the restaurant...More

Bamboo Garden has changed their name to East West Kitchen, but unfortunately nothing else has changed. A family has purchased the restaurant but they forgot to educate themselves about Food Safe, etc. We won't be back.

The food is poor (not very tasty and rather greasy). The decor and surroundings are poor. Better to buy some good frozen Chinese food and avoid this restaurant.
