  • Overview

  • Hours

Bamboo Garden is owned and operated by a local family; it benefits from the owners’ 15+ years Bow Valley food service experience and has become a Banff favourite. Their chefs have a passion for cooking Chinese, Thai cuisine with other Asian influences. Dishes are made fresh-to-order without MSG to suit tastes ranging from mild to very spicy.

Vegetarian and gluten-free menus are available. The stylish interior features Zen- and Buddha-inspired photography, statues and furnishings. Great Mount Rundle and Tunnel Mountain views are enjoyed from inside or the patio.
