We made reservations because the Hot Pot tables are just a few, and not at every table. The quality and quantity of food was excellent. Lots of fresh and clean veggies, varying from baby bok choy to taro root. The meat was very tender and sliced very thin. Every thing comes to the table fresh and uncooked. You cook your... More

My wife and I live about 40 minutes Northwest of Portsmouth. We have tried several Chinese Restaurants around our area and were greatly disappointed. THEN I searched around for something in the Portsmouth area and found the Pink Bamboo. I will tell you that we LOVE this place. We have been there about 4 times now, and everything is always...

Have only been there once or twice since it has been under new ownership. We dined there frequently in the past, in the restaurant and take out. Fresh ingredients, clean restaurant, good food.

We ordered Pad Thai; Crunchy noodles w/shrimp; and Hot & Sour soup. None of these should be bland, but all were. The hot & sour soup wasn't too bad compared to the others though. The Pad Thai was white and flavorless. The Crunchy noodles were marked as hot/spicy but were anything but. Chinese take-out is everywhere and these are common... More

One more time a restaurant slides in. This time, id guess for the long haul. They softened up the previous cold,fluorescent decor, making this a way more cozy spot to enjoy some of the most delicious fresh tasting thai/szechuan/asian fare around,

The food was... Not very good. Not what I was expecting. When you order seseme chicken, you are expecting seseme chicken. What I got was not. It was small stripps of soggy chicken in a tangy, sour sauce with some seseme seeds On top. The broccoli was sour. I have tried this place a number of times, and different things... More

The wonton soup may be the best I have ever had. Set us up for being disappointed. My entree was good, but my wife's was bland and mostly celery. Pleasant atmosphere. Good prices. But won't be hurrying back.

The food here is excellent. The fried rice is not the usual greasy variety and the wonton soup is perfect on a chilly day. The only issue is the timing of the food delivery to the table; it arrived one dish at a time, and I had to ask about my final item well after everything else was on the... More

We recently stayed at the Wentworth and decided we wanted some delivery for dinner instead of going out or getting room service. The reviews for this place were good so we decided to try it. They delivered to our hotel in the time that they said that they would; the food was fresh and hot. We ordered chicken udon noodles,... More

Always fresh vegetables, still crunchy, not soggy when they reach you! Clean place with super friendly staff. I order delivery often and it's always hot and delicious!

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.
