Does anyone know what happened to Cafe Bamboo in Braddon?

kleo7036 6 July 2015 4


My wife and I had a favourite Chinese restaurant, Cafe Bamboo, on Lonsdale Street in Braddon. It was forced to close as their building was demolished to make way for new apartments.

Does anyone know if the owner moved to a new location? I meant to ask but forgot, and when I walked by, it was gone.

It looked dated? Grim? What is with Canberrans nowadays and their disdain of anything not bright and shiny?

Sadly they closed and decided not to reopen as the rents and lease terms of newer properties didn’t meet their needs. A real pity as it was a great little place. Yes it looked pretty grim but the food was always tasty and cheap as.

The Mongolian Beef at Ginseng in the Hellenic Club at Woden is pretty much on par with Cafe Bamboos and at lunch just as cheap 🙂

I dont think business was going well, had heard the building owner offered them a new space. Place look dated.

As far as I’m aware, it hasn’t opened up anywhere else unfortunately.
