Quality food at a reasonable price. Everything on the buffet is great, but my favorite is the General Chicken!

Bamboo Gardens is the oldest Chinese restaurant and town. And it stands to be the best Chinese restaurant in town. Their buffet provides you with a variety of Chinese food to meet your Chinese food cravings.

This restaurant has a lot of seating and a nice food bar, smorgasbord type meal. We have always enjoyed the food here and the variety provided. The lemon chicken and general Zsoa's chicken is amazing.
