About Bamboo House

Specialising in Northern Chinese cuisine, Melbourne institution Bamboo House on Little Bourke Street in the heart of Chinatown is renowned for delicious traditional and contemporary dishes. Wide entrance doors with a plaque symbolising the bamboo plant give a hint of the elegance inside; wall dressings, ornaments, white-clothed round tables and modern glass side walls set the scene for a memorable dining experience. Embark on your culinary journey with spicy garlic and chilli calamari, or shredded duck and dried scallop soup; before Beggar’s chicken, wrapped in lotus leaf to retain moisture and natural flavours, with steamed rice and sautéed greens. Perhaps jumbo prawns in Shanghainese chilli sauce tempt, or wok-seared beef eye fillet and pepper sauce; enjoyed with a glass of red wine.
