Visited this establishment recently for the first time as the only Chinese restaurant in the Grey Street Precinct. Disappointing service and food.The unfriendly welcome at the door to the disinterested waiters and waitresses was really quite amazing in a marketplace where business owners are struggling with diminishing returns. The mixed vegetables were overdone (possibly even heated up) ,wilted and sad.... More

This restaurant is closer to the South Brisbane station and has plenty of room for diners. They offer yum cha so it must get busy. Food was served quickly and was really tasty. The only thing I was disappointed with was that we were given three menus to choose from but it wasn't mentioned that they had lunch time specials... More

There were 6 of us who just walked in of the street for lunch, they were busy but bent over backwards to fit us in. The food was served fast and tasted great. Well done Bamboo Basket I will be back.

We made a reservation for a lunch for a few people. We had only an hour, but some food took 1 hour to arrive to the table. The staff we not attentive and essentially ignored us. The food was decidedly average. The duck was over cooked but the BBQ pork was nice. The soup the noodles was in was bland.... More

Ate here on NYE so was quite busy. Food was very good but service was a bit slow as they were flat out. Great spot to watch the fireworks as it is opposite Southbank.

Dined with some friends and whilst food was pretty good, it is fairly expensive considering what you get. A few dishes quickly adds up to $40 so if you're a big eater like myself, you're going to need deep pockets or some self restraint.

Looking for good Yum Cha in Brisbane - Bamboo Basket's menu looked good. The restaurant does look a little shabby inside and we were initially hesitant food did not come out on the yum cha trolley as we like to see it - however, three chefs were clearly visible in the kitchen preparing the food freshly and we were not...

Went there for lunch on a Friday. Only one waiter for the whole restaurant. The food took ages to come out, so had finished eating the first dishes before they all came out, which is not great as would have preferred to eat the dishes together. The quality of the food was average. There are much better places around food... More

I really enjoyed our visit to the Bamboo Basket. We were there for a business lunch and the service was very prompt. I enjoyed everything and left full (but at a reasonable price). I will be back.
