We have been going to the Bamboo House before going to the theater for several years now. The food is excellent , the service is always very prompt and attentive . This is a very good meal at a very nice location, although somewhat deceiving by the strip center ambiance.

We like to stop here before going to Stages Theatre. Moderate prices, pretty fast service and close to the theatre!

A very nice menu...not extensive & over-whelming, but a nice variety. The servings are a nice size for the cost.

Well, I must admit I was doubtful initially. I have driven past it hundreds of times, coming in and out of Whole Foods, and wasn't expecting much. However, what a surprise Bamboo house turned out to be! From start to finish, it was a great meal. The menu was well balanced. All of our plates were beautifully dressed and wonderfully... More

Had New Year's eve dinner with 3 other couples at this place. Our first visit but won't be our last! They took the extra effort of putting flowers on the table for eight. Gave us a quiet corner, although the restaurant wasn't really busy. I had the edamame which is hard to screw up. Dinner was Walnut Shrimp and it... More

We had lunch here today and were very pleased with the menu. The variety is Asian dishes is nice... Curry to Pho. You can also choose which meat to have in your dishes as well as the heat level. We chose "drunken noodles" with chicken - extra spicy. They were wonderful. We also tried the Penang curry with chicken, again... More

After hearing that the previous owner, Bessie, and her chef husband had retired and sold their business, I was concerned about what we would find when we went back to Bamboo House. Well, we were delighted to find the new owner, Soy, and her husband and chef, Peter, to be friendly and attentive. In addition, many of the previous dishes... More

It has been a while since we have eaten at Bamboo house. It is refreshing to know that good things don't change. There is a new Server, but most things there have not changed. The food is still great and the service is wonderful. The prices are even still in the same range from the last time we visited. I... More

We have visited the Bamboo House several times, as it is convenient to Stages, a theater we frequent. The owner recognizes us, and always gives us great, attentive service. The food is fresh, flavorful, and the portions just right. We have tried most of the menu, and it's all good. Moo-shoo pork can be shared by two if you want... More
