Been going to Bamboo House since the late 90s and have always found the food to be excellent. Eat in or take out, love their food! I always have good service and the folks there are very friendly.

There is nothing pretentious about this restaurant. It's simply good Chinese food, frequented by lots of Chinese patrons. My only cavil: no brown rice.

My wife and kids eat at Bamboo House often throughout the year, for many years now. We have enjoyed our meals no matter what we order.
