After reading all the good reviews we decided to give this little cafe a go. Maybe my expectations were to high because I don’t think it earns more then 3 stars. The food was ok, some rice dishes were delicious but some stir fry veggies...More

We have just enjoyed an excellent Beef Rendang and delicious Fish Curry. Don't be put off by the no frills decor, the genuine Malaysian Food and friendly atmosphere more than makes up for it. If you're looking for tasty Malaysian cooking this is the place.

We wandered in here thinking it'd be OK for a quick lunch before seeing more of the Katoomba sights. The prices were reasonable, serving sizes big, mostly great food and the staff were friendly - give it a go!

Wow. What a shame. I've observed the deterioration of the quality and service over the past few months. It's been a gradual decline. Today was the very last time I'll visit Bamboo Box. Hideous. Such a shame as it was so, so good previously.

The staff were friendly, efficient and cheerful. The decor was minimal but comfortable. The food was fantastic. I have tried Chinese food in six countries on four continents and this was some of, if not the best.
