this was a very nice surprise for us. For my wife and I this was the best food we ate in Oz and very reasonable prices. at first glance it looks like a Chinese restaurant but in fact they offer Malay, Indonesian, Thai and Chinese dishes. They served the best Roti Canai I have ever tasted outside of Malaysia and... More

Absolutely no flavour in the dishes. I had to add a heap of soy sauce to my BBQ pork noodle soup so that it tasted like anything other than plain boiled water, and the noodles were just 1 minute noodles. Asked for extra chilli but the chillies had no spice at all. The stir fried vegetables had no sauce not... More

I wanted to try this place because of all the reviews. The manager was certainly friendly and the service was good. Disappointed with the entrees - we had the salt and pepper calamari and the pork and chive dumplings. However the wok tossed Asian greens with garlic, the pork belly and the sweet and spicy shredded beef were delicious. Give... More

We decided to stop by as it was Chinese New Year's Eve and we had a great meal. I had a Malaysian meal - great, especially the Roti. The small bonzi trees added to the atmosphere. Curry sauce was to die for. Great for any occasion

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.
