Came across this hidden gem as we were walking to the thai square restaurant down the road and decided to check out the menu. Definitely the best Chinese food Ive ever eaten in the 25 years I've lived in Sydney. The service was also fantastic :) so friendly and the price reasonable.

We've been to Bamboo Box at Katoomba several times now and it's always provided a reliable venue for amazingly good tasting food in an intimate, yet informal setting. During the day you can dine in or get a great variety of Asian inspired dishes, sushi and simpler fare. At night Bamboo Box transforms and offers patrons Malaysian and Chinese style... More

Walking down the street in the freezing cold wind and spotted this little Asian restaurant. Very welcoming,warm and slightly eccentric but friendly. Fast service and a great choice of dishes. Delicious food and not too expensive. For a quick healthy meal this was perfect. Lots of locals as well as visitors. Newspapers and magazines to read and eccentric, friendly locals... More

The best thing about this restaurant is the staff, they are lovely and friendly and very attentive. The menu is extensive and a little overwhelming with the hybrid modern Asian food. The food was delicious but it's a mix of Malaysian, Chinese, modern Australian.

Food amazing! Service amazing!! When we visited here for dinner on Saturday, it was packed but the staff was already very attentive and friendly while we were waiting. And as soon as we got our table, coloring books and crayons were given to our kids, thanks to this amazing service, our little ones were entertained well until food arrived :)... More
