Very well prepared food. Place has been here for some 20 plus years and it stays busy!! Love the ambiance and the size of the place is just right.

The restaurant has an extensive menu with a wide variety of choices. The sauces are very good and can be varied from mild to hot. The service is attentive and the surroundings are clean and light.

This is a very tranquil quiet restaurant that serves excellent food. A family run business, the service is always attentive. Love many of the dishes including chicken salad, clay pot options, spring rolls, and fish dishes. Very reasonable for a lot of food.

I especially liked the mild chicken curry. Our local friend dines here nearly every week and is never disappointed. We always visit when we are in town and love this restaurant, as well.

This unassuming strip mall restaurant serves excellent, fresh food in a family atmosphere. The food is always fresh and attractively presented. The owners are gracious and helpful. This is a great place for a quiet dinner with good accoustics.

On a day when I was feeling frazzled, the husband suggests dinner out at Le Bambou. A wonderful suggestion! It was peaceful, service was efficient and the food, oh the food. We had the claypot with rice, barbecued pork and mushrooms, a vegetable soup, and...More
