Enjoyed lunch here with a Malaysian Chinese selection. Laksa was very good. Mild chili but lots of flavour. Friendly service and pleasant setting. A previous review commented about small portions. We did not find that at all. In fact the laksa was almost enough for a full meal for two people.

As a Family of 10 people spanning 3 generations, we decided to have a Birthday Dinner at this Restaurant. We were not disappointed. Service was very good. Food was good to very good. Atmosphere was relaxingly good. Complimentary glass of Port at the end was unexpected and was appreciated. Value for money was excellent. We shall return when possible.

This place is a pleasure to dine at. The service is second to none, with genuinely attentive staff who create a really relaxed and delightful atmosphere. The food is delicious and consistent (have dined here multiple times), and generously priced. Finishing the evening off with a complimentary port is a charming touch! Will happily be returning to Bambusia regularly in... More

We eat here almost every month with our extended family which range in age from 16 to 88. The restaurant is run by Richard, the owner who is genuinely very charismatic and extremely funny and always cracking jokes. The food is excellent and the service is friendly and efficient. Our favourites are the hot and sour soup, the salt and... More

Bambusia has been consistent in the excellence of food, the friendliness of staff and the efficiency of table service. Amazingly this has continued for decades. Great value for money, too. Well and truly a cut above the usual suburban Chinese restaurant. Well done RIchard Leong.

Delicious $13, $14 and $15 (+ if desired eg duck was about $16??) takeaway dishes. We could have eaten in - looked pretty comfy. Uncle / Maitre D was super friendly and accommodating: cooking my vegan cousin's food in fresh oil and creating a dish on the spot for him.

Visited here in 2010 and 2013 and 2015 My mouth is watering as I count down the days to my next visit in march 2017. This really is a little jewel of a restaurant. The food is excellent from first page to last and Richard and his staff are friendly and knowledgeable in their field. See you all in March

We dined here on wet wintery evening some time last year. It was not our first occasion and generally we had found the food to be good. However on this occasion I am prompted to write a review as every time my children ask for deep fried ice cream, I think of Bambusia. And I think of how on this... More
