Bamboo House has become a favorite of our family. We have eaten there at least 5 or 6 times when visiting our daughter at the University of Delaware. The food has been consistently delicious. It is a welcome respite to the chaos on Main Street.

You won't find any better food anywhere in Delaware. Not only is the service fantastic, the food is truly authentic and outstanding. Owners will remember your name, treat you like you are the most important person to enter the door. The food is comparable to none in the area. The only disappointed was the sushi, although good, was not as... More

I've been in 2 different evenings and always stayed well. Nice dinner in a good company! We didn't eat sushi but only a real taste of Chinese food. I suggest for people that usually travel to Asia and eat Asian food: here can find a "corner" of Asia in USA.

I have been wanting to try Bamboo House for a while now after reading such good reviews. It is not close to home and prices are higher than most of the Chinese places around, so it usually did not end up at the top of my list when choosing a Chinese restaurant on the fly. About two months ago, I... More

I have been here numerous times with a group and loved it each time. Flavor in different entrees is all different and appropriate to the dish! ALL of us have very much enjoyed our food.

The firecracker roll is my favorite but there is nothing that you couldn't get from the menu that isn't well prepared. We don't get sushi anywhere else. It is very classy and upscale feeling but you can still stop in at lunch wearing shorts or jeans. Also there are always many Chinese and Japanese folks eating there so you know... More

Visited for lunch on a Sunday. None of the lunch specials available on weekends or holidays. Sesame chicken very flavorful but shrimp in lobster sauce not classic Cantonese preparation. No pork and an absence of garlic. Only vegetable egg rolls available and still greasy when served. Service very impersonal.

I had several outstanding lunches here and my fav is the Tempura Japense lunch box and thier General Tsoa Chicken maybe the best I had. All lunches so far have been fresh and hot.

Delicious meal. What a difference it makes to have a Chinese colleague order. Especially when his family owns a restaurant. Pea pod leaves cooked with garlic and salt were so good and not on the menu. The mala beef hot pot was good but very spicy. Loved the salt and pepper shrimp. Great meal.

I hate to complain and my earlier experiences with this restaurant were very positive. In the past year and a half, with 3 or 4 visits, I have been disappointed. Tonight was probably my last visit there. Two take out dishes, one was vegetarian, one shrimp roll and a drink at the bar while waiting... Tab came to $39. Pricey... More
