Don't know how there are so many bad reviews for this place, you can eat as much freshly cooked fish as you want, shrimp, prawns, salmon, calamri. Choose your own sauce and add as many vegetables as you want, all cooked in front of you! Loved it so much can't wait to go back! Great value for money!

When I first came to Bamboo at Kaiserstrasse, I was enthusiastic. I liked everything there, except of course stuff I do not care about like Sushi and chinese desserts. But the meat, the fish, the vegetables, the sauce, all great, because I was not used to asian cooking at all. A year later, when I went to some more chinese... More

Wow! This place... we had a very bad experience: - The place is very stinky (from the kitchen smell) they don't have ventilation... - The food was not tasty and therefore we left some on the plate. They asked us to pay each 2 euro fine on that... - The staff (and especially the restaurant manager) is not friendly at... More

This was the most terrible lunch experience ever. The waiters are very arrogant and unprofessional. The food looks like it was made for animals. The Viennese local health authority should definitely pay a visit to this local. This restaurant should be closed. Besides the food being disgusting, the prices are just nonsensical. I felt robbed and poisoned. Feel like vomiting... More

The food offered here is pretty generic. The usual Chinese buffet style. Lacking in imagination, but big on portions. So perfect for someone with a massive hunger who prefers the culinary middle ground and doesn't demand much from a restaurant. One redeeming feature of the restaurant is that you can have your food individually wok fried.

We noticed that many of the restaurants we came across did not have much of a selection of vegetables and we were starting to really miss them. Bamboo had fresh green beans and other green vegetables. That alone made us like this place, but otherwise a typical Asian place.

A typical asian food. You can make a choice of seafood and chicken! Very clean, popular restaurant! You can see on my photos how it look like.

Dinner buffet at 14.5€ (drinks not included!) with lots to choose from - sushi and sashimi (do not expect very high quality one though), teppanyaki with your own-picked ingredients (seafood, meats and veggies) and sauce. There is a Chinese appetiser and main dish bar as well as dessert. Very reasonably priced and staff was really nice and hospitable as well.

I loved them some years back, but in the meantime they got obviously very cynical about their customers, food from the buffet never was very good, and now they've gone down with the quality of the meat as well. Plus the 'chef' who runs the grill station knows what he does when he throws a lot of oil on the... More

The menu during working days is in between 6-9 € (depending on the time, as they offer Happy Hour from 3-5PM). They offer a huge selection of seafood, meat and desserts, nevertheless, the grill is not that tasteful and the ingredients are not good quality (exactly what you expect for this price in Austria). We went there with the illusion... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Neubau
Vienna’s art district, Neubau buzzes with galleries, arts and crafts, trendy restaurants, avant-garde shops, and cafés. Neubau’s Spittelberg quarter with cobblestoned Spittelberggasse and Gutenberggasse make for a perfect stroll alongside Biedermeier houses and art shops. Don’t miss the historic courtyard at Amerlinghaus with its typical Pawlatschen galleries, a perfect hangout on a warm summer evening. Museumsquartier is Neubau’s undisputed highlight: the former Imperial stables house various top museums of 19th to 21st century art. If you love interiors, head for the Imperial Furniture museum (Hofmobiliendepot), one of the world’s largest furniture collections. Find your favorites among a dazzling array of Baroque, Biedermeier, Art Nouveau and Modernist chairs, sofas, cupboards, coat hangers, foot stools and wash basins. No weekend visit would be complete without stopping by a local café on a weekend morning for brunch.
