Bamboo Garden


Recommend To Friends

Second floor, 211 Banff Avenue (stair access from the front; elevator access at the back)
  • Overview
  • Prices
  • Hours

Bamboo Garden is owned and operated by a local family. The restaurant benefits from the owners’ 15+ years of Bow Valley food service experience, and has become a Banff favourite. The chefs have a passion for cooking Chinese and Thai cuisine; many offerings incorporate other Asian influences as well. Dishes are made fresh-to-order without MSG to suit tastes ranging from mild to very spicy. Vegetarian and gluten-free menus are available.


Bamboo Garden’s 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.
