Bamboo House

Dawn McGee
Bamboo House's serene and spotless interior, with its soothing colors and hip décor, belies its strip-center location. Standard Chinese dishes are served alongside more adventuresome offerings; Vietnamese, Thai and Japanese dishes also make appearances. Prices are slightly higher here than at other Chinese restaurants, but they reflect careful preparation and choice ingredients. Wok-seared beef and leeks, teriyaki rib-eye, oolong sea bass and walnut shrimp are favorites.
