There are not many places left in Richmond that serve to "gweilo", and deliver! Those that do are often greasy; pricey and measly. Bamboo Express reminds me of childhood family dinners at the Bamboo Grove, with a Shirley Temple! Its basic, economical and not greasy. Have eaten here twice recently and both times impressed with how freshly cooked everything was.... More

There is very minimal seating so we elected to take our dinner home. For about $30 we received 2 spring rolls, beef with broccoli, sweet and sour pork and chow mein (set menu - dinner for two). The portions were small compared to other Chinese restaurants in Richmond and somehow I had the feeling that I was eating English food... More

This place is one I can get my regular fix of the standard Chinese foods. I usually get take out or opt to get it delivered right to my home (which is super convenient). The spicy salt squid is super tasty and I always make sure to get that when I go there!

My GPS brought me to this restaurant as we were searching for a quick fix. For a small place, food was freshly prepared. Lots of non-Asians going in and out to pick up their orders. Was very happy with our food orders and reasonably priced. And lady at the counter had a big smile and certainly knew her regular patrons.

Tried it for the first time for our work and it turned out that everyone quite enjoyed the food. The portions were good in the sense Two could easily eat from every dish. The taste to some extent was a hit and miss. I ordered fried prawns and found those to be rather chewy and dry. The pork fried rice... More

They do a very good job with take out for larger groups. Make sure you eat when it is delivered and do not wait.

This establishment is primarily designed for take-out and deliveries however there is seating available for about a dozen persons (but patrons coming in and out can tend to be a bit intrusive because of the size of the premises. I ordered #2 from the Dinner for One Menu (deep fried prawns, chicken chow mein and sweet & sour pork), not... More

I really enjoy coming here for the lunch special! We also enjoy the treat of ordering from here for the whole family once a month. The food is hot and delicious. I love the egg rolls and sweet and sour soup. Richmond has a lot of "authentic" Chinese restaurants. This is good ol' Canadian Chinese food... Chicken balls, sweet and... More
