If you love authentic Chinese food served in a warm, inviting setting, you will go crazy for Bamboo! We are one of the oldest Chinese restaurants in downtown San Francisco, and we take pride in maintaining the highest standards for freshness and variety. Our traditional Mandarin and Hunan-inspired dishes will surprise and delight. Whether you want a late-night delivery of old favorites or are planning a formal sit-down dinner with family or co-workers, Bamboo will make you happy and satisfied as only great Chinese food can.
Start with one or more of our tasty soups, salads or appetizers to tease your palate. Our customers love our crispy shrimp and basil dumplings and our spicy Gong Drumsticks. Those who prefer a lighter appetizer will enjoy our fresh shrimp and noodle spring rolls, which are served with a savory dipping sauce. Soup lovers have more than just hot-and-sour and wonton to choose from, though our versions of these traditional soups are exceptional. Try the Sizzling Seafood soup or our Egg Flower with Sweet Corn soup for an adventure in flavor.
But our main dish menus are where the real excitement happens! You will find all your favorites, such as Peking Duck and General Chao's Chicken, lovingly prepared and beautifully presented. Our Sesame Beef is succulent, savory and sweet. Check out our Chef's Recommendations Menu for some of our house specialties. Our Bamboo Duck is a flavorful half duck roasted with woodsy black mushrooms. Customers come from all over town to experience our Honey Walnut Prawns, an indulgent melange of fried prawns and honey-sweet nuts.
Is there a vegetarian in your party? Not to worry, because Bamboo's veggie dishes are to die for. You'll adore our vegetable-loaded Buddha's Delight or our amazing Mango Meatless Shrimp.
