Bamboo occupies a storefront space on Ventura Blvd, near the intersection with Costello Ave. Parking can be tricky here, so many patrons go with the valet service, though others choose to find a meter or procure free parking on a side-street. Inside, Bamboo is a casually elegant Chinese restaurant specializing in Mandarin cuisine. The menu includes everything from jade chicken to pork fried rice to sweet & sour shrimp. A lobby seating is provided, should there be a wait, and there's also a cozy bar up front. The dining area includes a mix of table styles, including the prime round options in near windows, all topped with white tablecloths.
