My usual go to Chinese restaurant was super busy and I didn't want to wait. Bamboo Garden is near my house so I dropped in. I'd eaten here before a few years back. Its kind of nondescript tucked back into the corner of a shopping strip that's kind of blocked from view. I seemed to remember the food being 'ok'.... More

First time here. Friendly, prompt service. Food service almost immediately. Piping hot and very good. Our group was in and out in less than 30 minutes.

Reasonably priced, old school, Chinese food. This isn't your corporate variety of cuisine. This family run business serves up many of the classics and some signature dishes. We had the pan fried noodles, Kung pao beef, soups, and eggrolls(actually spring rolls which we prefer). All were excellent and full of complex "in country" flavors. This isn't fine dining so don't... More

Bamboo Gardens, Austin, TX, rated awesome by our hotel, Hampton Inn, it was anything but. First it took my wife what seemed like 10 minutes to get them to understand her cell number and order. Then they called her back butchering her name so bad she thought it was a wrong number. Then we thought it might be them confirming... More

This Chinese restaurant in South Austin reliably serves up traditional dishes that are both tasty and large. Christine, the owner, and her son Clement will greet you with a friendly smile. If you have a large party they will show you to a semi-private table where most of the normal restaurant noises will be filtered out. My mother has a... More

Bamboo Garden has been an South Austin tradition for 30+ years. That says a lot because very few restaurants in Austin stay around that long. The location is in a small strip center but it is well-lit and safe. The restaurant is always spotless and the staff are always friendly. This place has a lot of regular diners who the... More

It's not the best, but pretty decent. Also, the price is OK
