Bamboo's latest attraction is the Chocolate Fountain.

Bamboo's teppanyaki grilled whole lamb is one of its most famous items. Before the grilled meat is served, it is sliced and stir-fried in Korean or black pepper sauce. Venison or deer meat is also available for customers who are looking to try something different.

Another favoured dish is the fried chicken wings with belacan, which Kum said was popular among their re-peat customers. Other popular picks include deep-fried stuffing crab with Thai sauce and grilled stingray with sambal.

Local favourites like asam laksa and char kuih teow are also popular. Customers can also make additional orders for their favourite hawker food.
