Wanted to try out Pink Bamboo's hot pot, which came close to the hot pot's enjoyed while in China. Very friendly and fast service and a nice spread for the hot pot!

Friday night we enjoyed dinner at Pink Bamboo after having not been in for some time. Right away we noticed the staff was unfamiliar but happily the place and menu were the same. We enjoyed our usual favorites ~ eggrolls, shrimp with peach, egg drop soup, wontons with spicy peanut butter sauce and crab rangoons. (ok, ok ~ also a... More

I had a quick meal before a meeting and ordered the Crispy Beef dish. I asked whether it came with rice (it didn't, which is unusual), but the waiter gave me a complementary side dish of it, which was nice of him. The food was really good (it should include rice, though), the price was reasonable,and the service was great.... More

I used TripAdvisor to find the best Chinese in Portsmouth NH and the reviews came thru for me. Pink Bamboo is on a side street off the downtown marketplace but very easy to find. I ordered take out and was surprised that it took less than 10 minutes to get my order. That bothered me a little because I thought... More

Very friendly and helpful staff- it was our first time ordering hot pot - which I highly recommend trying! Awesome food, good atmosphere, fair prices, and if you're up for it they have scorpion bowls.

Had take out with my girl. I ordered pan fried noodles triple delight. Received one container of pretty good hot mix of veg, chicken, beef, shrimp. The other was a Styrofoam plate of pan fried noodles. Dry, cold, hard. Shattered under pressure of a fork. Chinese taco salad? Is that by intention? I tried to cook / soften the noodles,... More

We went here for a meal when visiting Portsmouth. It looks nice from outside and the dining room is nice, modern and clean. Lots of choice on the menu. The food we thought was average and went cold quickly. There were only a couple of tables taken and service was average, not overly friendly. Haven't tried any other local ones... More

Honestly, save your money and go home and make a sandwich. The food was dry, unpleasant and served in a near-empty but still clattery dining room without joy. We only ate enough to satisfy our acute hunger, then left the rest. Not pleasing in any way.

Near Bow St. Ma Po To Fu, 8.95, could feed 2. Silky tofu in savory - not too salty, sauce that's medium spicey with pork grounds, then topped with a sprinkle of sliced, fresh, green onions. Menu includes: Hot Pot starting @ 13.95, Hot & Sour Soup 2.95, and 21 lunch specials until 3pm starting @ 5.95. Regular menu dishes for chicken, seafood, and beef start @ 9.95, 11.95, & 10.95, respectively. Clean. Dark tables. Zen-ish. Gracious service. Ask them re: Ladies' Night. Will return for lunch or appetizers and cocktails.
