Mietta's Review
A restrained and elegant experience is what dining at Bamboo House is all about. A perfect situation for business meetings and subdued conversations, it has been popular amongst Australia's leading politicians for many years. The menu is authentic Shanghai, Peking and Sichuan cuisine, the setting is discreet and formal, and the service much warmer if you are known.

Herald Sun, Weekend, 6/3/04, Bob Hart,'sophisticated Chinese food...The real secret of Bamboo House, however, can be summed up in a single word:consistency.'

Gourmet Traveller Resaurant Guide Australia 2004, 1 Black Star, Good vegetarian options,'this restaurant has earned the reputation as one of Melbourne's best...The Sichuan menu promises dishes that should capture the fiery flavour's of China's south-west,yet they were almost diffident.But if it's service and style you're after and better-than-avergage food, its a safe bet'
