Welcome to Bamboo Restaurant

We are a family owned and operated Chinese food restaurant, serving the Gatineau and Ottawa regions for 40 years. Located on the main rustic strip of rue Principale in Gatineau (Aylmer), we are only a short drive from the downtown Gatineau and Ottawa areas.

Our menu specializes in Cantonese and Szechuan style dishes, offering a wide variety of dishes; some, you are already familiar with, as well some lesser known authentic Cantonese dishes. All of our recipes are prepared from scratch in our establishment, and we are dedicated to offering you only the finest quality, and most carefully prepared food. We are also a fully licensed establishment. No matter what your palate prefers, the Bamboo has something you are sure to enjoy!

The restaurant is housed in a historic building constructed in 1933. The exterior facade of the building has been restored, and maintains true to its original appearance. The interior, however, has been renovated many times over the years in order to continue providing our customers with a warm, comfortable and inviting atmosphere in which to dine.

Whether you are one of our many long-standing customers, or new to the area, we welcome you to join us in our dining room for a delectable dining experience, or if you prefer the comforts of your home or business, you are welcome to place an order for take-out or delivery.
