Katoomba was very busy in early January - we had wandered into town hoping to find somewhere to sit down and eat, but most places were booked out. The manager at Bamboo Box was very friendly (not at all pushy) and suggested we book for the following night which we did. When we arrived the next evening she welcomed us... More

Great find in Katoomba - lovely food and great service in this restaurant towards the top of the hill near the station. It's a BYO but there is a great bottle shop just next door with a good selection. I had the five spice beef which was delicious but everyone's meals were delicious.

Extensive menu and a selection for everyone. Very strong customer service and charming and attentive staff. A good restaurant for families and a quick meal. A little heavy on the oil in the stir fries but fresh produce and well done.

We wanted to eat before catching the train back to Sydney. A local person recommended the Bamboo Box to us and we were not disappointed. The food was excellent and freshly prepared and we much enjoyed the quality of what we ordered.

Everything about this place was lovely! My boyfriend and I originally went to get pizza but the place was closed and stumbled upon this place by accident and am really glad we did. The lady helping us was very friendly, professional and accommodating and had really great customer service. We asked if anything was vegan and the lady happily pointed... More

Many of the negative reviews I give in Katoomba are for places that close down. This place is the opposite side of the same coin --- a place that has great food and has been open for ages. It is small, but don't be put off. There are take-aways that you can eat at the Carrington lawn opposite. The "secret"... More

I was looking for a quick inexpensive lunch and stumbled across Bamboo Box. Food is the best asian food we have had in a very long time. Full of flavour, well priced and fresh. Would return in a heartbeat.

Salt and pepper fish, singapore noodles, and chicken and cashews in oyster sauce made a delicious meal for four. I wish this place were my local. This tiny Katoomba restaurant punches well above its weight and has friendly, efficient staff to boot. Yum. It's yet another reason to visit the Blue Mountains more often.

The food here is fantastic, affordable and authentic with a classier dinner service available on weekends, however the lunches here are some of my most memorable, and that's after living and eating in Sydney for 8 years and moving back here to a land of limited options. Home style Vietnamese pork rolls with fresh coriander and chilli mayonnaise, a pumpkin... More
