The food at this establishment was good! The service, also very good. I ordered to go, and while I was waiting, the offered me some water while I waited. This was a nice touch, albeit simple.

Not that exciting, we had 4 dishes and without doubt the best was long beans with mince, the crispy skin chicken was dry and over all it was very average. I am sure there are plenty of better restaurants in town.

Stopped here after a long hike in the area hoping for a bowl of delicious soup. The atmosphere was right away disappointing, hardly any customers yet we had to wait for a table to be cleared and cleaned. Staff does not speak very much English. The soups tasted OK but small for $10 average. The worst part was that my... More

We ordered a couple of Thai curry dishes to takeaway, as we love Thai food and enjoy a flavoursome meal. Not impressed with the meals served here - very bland. When we went to collect our evening meal, the restaurant was empty with no tables set & very poor presentation. Could not recommend it. Many better options in Banff.

Nothing special here. Ordered pork wonton and beef n broccoli. Both seemed like your average "chinese" restaurant style dish. Next time I will look elsewhere.

I had a noodle bowl. The noodles were not properly cooked and it's was mostly bland broth. I'm not a picky eater and I don't want to say all there food was bad, but this meal defiantly was. We had deep fried ice cream for desert and it was chewy and soggy all at the same time. Very gross.

Used to go hear every time we were in Banff as my friend and I love Thai food. On my latest visit, December 2016, noticed that their sign read "Chinese and Asian cuisine ' and no longer thai.. So definitely disappointed. Its not a great restaurant atmosphere wise, all staff are Asian with not the best English, but the Thai... More

The Bamboo Garden has taken over the old Silver Dragon space. The food was hit and miss and the prices were high, even by Banff standards. The minced pork and eggplant was very good. The lemongrass shrimp and the fried rice were fine. The lemon chicken was actually cool to the touch when it came out and mostly flavourless (overpowered... More

I've visited here on a few occasions. Always had a very tasty meal and good service. Small tip, if you like pop as much as I do then you always appreciate the free refills, they don't make it clear on their menu that they do not do free refills.

We are not experts in Chinese food, but we enjoy it and have been to Chinese restaurants in several different countries. The restaurant looked a bit old fashioned in terms of decor, and could have done with new paint on the walls and new carpet. We were seated in the area at the front by the large window (the view...
